    Entrepreneurs=Opportunity

    Afraid you’re competing with too many entrepreneurs? There’s a silver lining… We’ve talked about possible future ideas for businesses. We’re going to see lots more people start businesses or at least look for side hustles. It’s easy to think, everyone’s doing that and I can’t compete but there’s a plus to so many people suddenly being self employed. I speak from experience when I say we can’t possibly do it all. We need help, even if it’s not on a daily basis, there are times when our time is short or our expertise doesn’t match up to the skill we need to get the job done. That’s where you come…

    What’s Your Passion?

    Let’s kick off the making money journey with a question. What’s your passion? If you had to explain it in one sentence what would it be? I’m a firm believer in when you choose a business or a side gig, it’s best to go with something that you’re passionate about. Sure, you can choose the hot trend of the year, something that you know others are making thousands of dollars doing, but if it’s not something that you’re passionate about, it’s not going to last…you’re not going to last.
