Getting Paid to Do What You Love? It’s Not Just for Superstars

It's not only the rich and famous that make money doing work they love. You don't have to be a superstar to get paid for the things you enjoy doing. Here's what to look for.“Do what you love and the money will follow.”

How many times have you heard advice like that? Do you think it’s true?

(“Hi, do you want to buy a rock?” or “Mooom, can I have a dollar to buy a rock?”) » Read more

There are a bunch of things you can do to work from home, and I’ll list some in a bit, but first here are a few things to look at when considering whether a work at home idea is for you. » Read more

Don’t Sell Yourself Short

Want to bring in some extra income, but don't think you have anything to offer? Don't sell yourself short, because your ideas and skills have value.Want to bring in some extra income, but don’t think you have anything to offer? Don’t sell yourself short, because your ideas and skills have value.

In fact, if you’re like most people, they have more value than you give yourself credit for.

It’s time to start giving yourself the credit you deserve, especially if you want to make the money that you deserve. And you’ve got to sell yourself, because like it or not, we’re all in the sales business. » Read more
