Money is one of those things that each and every one of us needs to get by, and live the lifestyles that we chose to lead. However big or small the financial obligations of our lives are, one thing for certain is that we need to make money in order meet these demands.
Majority of people earn their money via conventional means and settle for a nine to five job. Those with an entrepreneurial spirit may chose to take another path and start their own business. You will even get those who chose to have a full time (or part-time) job and moonlight as lets say for example a marketing consultant or web designer. Whatever the case may be, there are so many ways that people out there make money.
I have a full time but am always on the look out to see how I can use what I have at my disposal to make a little extra. Sometimes it may not necessarily be about picking on something and using it to make money but about looking at something of interest that someone else is doing to earn a living and sharing it as it may inspire someone out there to launch a venture that turns into a viable revenue stream.
When it comes to making money, the flip side of the coin is saving money. Most of us are out there making X amounts but, what is the point of earning an X amount of money and blowing it all?
One thing that’s a good idea is to save a certain percentage of each and every pay check and have it paid directly into high interest earning savings account. The money that you put away could be for a variety of reasons which included but aren’t limited to retirement, an emergency fund and for something such as a holiday, house or car.
Saving isn’t just about putting money into the bank, it can also be realised in the way that we spend our money such as being signed up for a mobile plan that costs you an arm a leg when there may be something a lot cheaper and suits your needs better. It’s also about shopping smarter and spending smarter.
At the end of the day, the aim of the game is FINANCIAL FREEDOM!
