Want To Know If Workshifting Is Right For You? Ask Yourself These Four Questions

Want To Know If Workshifting Is Right For You Ask Yourself These Four QuestionsBy Anum Yoon

Once upon a time telecommuting or work outside of a traditional office setting was practically synonymous with “working from home.” However, this is no longer the case. There are those who work from coffee shops, park benches, and even hotels. Some might be getting work done on airplanes.

Workshifting is increasingly popular among a generation of working-age young Americans who want the freedom to earn money while not being practically bound to an office desk.

But before getting carried away about the ideals attached to workshifting, it’s important to ask yourself whether or not this type of work is right for you.

Here are four questions to ask in order to get an idea of whether or not remote work is something you should do.

1.) Does Your Career Field Make Workshifting Possible?

First and foremost, you should know for sure whether or not your work is something that can translate into an off-site career. For many jobs, it’s imperative that you are physically available.

For example: Positions at hospitals, drug rehab centers, or clinics typically don’t offer that level of flexibility. Read the rest of this entry »

Earn Ridiculous Money While You Sleep

Earn Ridiculous Money While You SleepBy Dan Drew

Admit it. You don’t mind working hard, but you’re tired … tired of working in an office, tired of working for someone else, tired of working hard just to make ends meet, tired of no time, no money, no vacations, no fun, tired of … You’re just plain tired…

But, what if—you could be playing, traveling the world, doing anything — and money still hit you, and it hit you hard, and it hit you again and again … Yeah. You could take a beating like that.

The Pioneer Woman.

Ree Drummond started blogging in 2006. By 2009, she was getting 13 million visitors a month, and by 2011 — 23 million. Wow! And she has a Food Network Show to boot. What a great gal, and family. IInntteerreessttiinngg! Reality blogging at it’s best.

With traffic like that, you can swim in money. You can build houses with it. She has books and their spinoffs, TV shows, and you can see ads listed on her website. Who knows what other income streams she has going. With royalties like that, you could be sunning in the Bahamas, and the cash register rings, and rings, and rings.

Ree started writing about her life, family, dog, and ranch — the things she loved. And people liked what she shared. Then she got interested in photography and cooking and added that. And people liked that too. Actually, they loved it! And then the Food Network came calling. Read the rest of this entry »

How to Overcome Analysis Paralysis

How to Overcome Analysis ParalysisBy Christy Schutz

I am a thinker. An idea person. Maybe some would call me a day dreamer. I like to ponder the possibilities and simmer on the execution and outcome. It’s part of who I am. But, when I have an upcoming project, a longstanding goal, or even sometimes just a small task, I can get stuck overthinking in the mode I like to call “analysis paralysis.”

I will research endlessly and then think of what I am working toward, playing out every contingency, every pitfall, every detail, until I’m consumed with thoughts and possible plans that I become incapable of action. As a result, absolutely nothing gets done. Eventually, those bright ideas and creative projects will just fizzle out, and I will have nothing to show for it but lost time and regret.

Ever found yourself stuck in a similar pattern?

Here are five ways to move past analysis paralysis:

Get an Accountability Partner.

Choose a trusted friend, family member or colleague to hold you accountable for some tangible progress. It’s harder to let your mind wander over ALL the possibilities when you know your pal is going to be asking you for some proof of action. You can bounce ideas off of them or even voice your concerns, but the bottom line is they have to be strict about REQUIRING some sort of progress from you. Read the rest of this entry »

My Journey to Making $40K a Month as a Full-Time Blogger

My Journey to Making $40K a Month as a Full-Time Blogger Initially, I interviewed Michelle back in December of 2013. Since that time she’s had AMAZING success with her blog. So I thought it would be fun to catch up with her and find out how she did it and what’s next for this professional blogger.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blogging journey.

I started blogging in August of 2011. Back then, I started my blog just as a way to connect with others who are doing something similar to me (paying off debt) and so that I could keep track of my financial progress. I started it purely as a hobby and I never thought that I would ever make any money online. I actually never even thought about making money online or blogging full-time once.

Before I knew it, my business was growing before my eyes. I didn’t mean for it to become my business, but it turned into something that I still love today. After around two years of blogging, I left my day job to blog full-time. It has now been around 2.5 years since I left my previous job.

I now try to focus on my blog as much as I can. I don’t write for many others anymore and that is so that I can continue to grow my own blog and increase my income. It’s been the best decision ever for me! I now have a book on the way, my blog is growing faster than ever, and I am in the very beginning stages of creating my own course as well.
