Here’s a quick thought for you to marinate on today:
“You don’t need to know exactly how you’re going to make a million dollars, you just need to figure out how you’re going to make more than you’re making today.”
My blogger friend Stefanie O’Connell shared that recently, and thought it was a brilliant reminder to take it step by step and not get so hung up on the long play as we often do which tends to make us want to quit before we even get started…
But working towards smaller – incremental – goals day by day such as income??! MUCH more do-able! And all still lead towards that Big Hairy Goal at the end, only with hundreds of little wins under our belt to keep us motivated :)
(Though of course I have to add a caveat here that just because you EARN more money doesn’t mean you actually HAVE more money! Haha… We all know people who are good at spending whatever’s in their account whether it’s $5.00 or $500,000 ;) So if you are going to hustle and bring in more over the months, please do yourself a favor and actually BANK IT so it counts! And then of course, don’t touch it.)
Here’s a list of 75 ways to earn extra money btw, for all those new to the site:
Some of my favorites in particular are:
- Picking Up Trash in Parking Lots ($30-$50/hr)
- Running a Christmas Tree Stand ($7,500/season (5 weeks))
- Voiceover Acting! ($300-$400/pop/avg)
- Photo Booth Operator ($100/hr)
- Worm Counter (8¢ per dozen night crawlers)
It can take a while to find something that sticks, but when it does it does!! And there’s only one way to figure it out – keep putting yourself out there and experimenting ;)
So here’s to experimenting more and taking it step by step! You don’t need to know exactly how you’re going to make a million dollars, you just need to figure out how you’re going to make more than you’re making today.
