Many people spend decades dreaming up ways to become hugely wealthy. They’re always hoping to hit the lottery jackpot, to create some life-changing gadget that everyone will want, or simply to inherit piles of cash from some hitherto unknown but crazy-rich relative. Although these scenarios are all pretty unlikely, some individuals do go from relative poverty or average incomes to secure vast sums of money. Below are four people who’ve done exactly that in completely different ways. Read their stories and perhaps you too will find inspiration. [Read more…]

Today, I have a post written by my sister-in-law. It’s a great read and I recommend reading Is Your Job Worth it? How Much Is It Costing You? as well.
I know that title sounds pretty contradictory, and I could have used something like, “Just Don’t Do It” or “Say No, Now.” But, before I explain my reasons for saying “no” to making money, let me introduce myself.
Hi, my name is Ariel. My husband and I both work full time, go to school for graduate and undergraduate degrees, and have three kids.
It really is as exhausting as it sounds, but I like to live my life on the chaotic side. We bought our house when we were just 20 and 21 years old and had a one year old daughter. He was working two jobs and going to school full time, and I was working two part time jobs. [Read more…]
As with any investment opportunity, there is always an element of risk but when it comes to gambling, knowing your game inside out, using various winning strategies and learning how to play properly will help to minimise your risk and stop you from relying on chance. Doing these things can help you to make your millions through gambling, allowing you to move away from the chance element of the games and adapt more to the skill levels of your preferred game. Gambling in an online casino can be just as prolific as gambling in a bricks and mortar casino, with many players winning their game through the use of skill rather than simply relying on chance.

- Retire early
- Stop living paycheck to paycheck
- Afford the things you want in life

One of the things that usually stops people from making more money is a lack of time. However, making more money and managing side hustles all depends on how badly you want it.
Some people may not want it as badly, and that’s fine. However, excuses won’t help you, so if you really want to make more money, then you will have to find more time in your day.
Just think about it: What do you think you could do with an extra 5-10 hours, or even more, each week? [Read more…]
There are millions of people around the would who dream of starting their own business. However, this can be a very hard thing to do for a wide variety of reasons. The main issue for most people is getting the necessary capital to launch the business. This often proves very problematic. This is especially difficult for people who do not have a great credit score. Many financial institutions will not have anything to do with people who have bad credit.

Fortunately, there are many ways that are available for people to obtain the money they need to make their business a reality. Here are a few of the best methods to go about doing this. [Read more…]
Today, I have a great post from a fellow RV friend. They are an RV family of 6, plus 2 dogs, who travel full-time in their RV. We started RVing last year and I know that many of you have had questions about raising a family in an RV. Below is a post from Bryanna and she explains how being an RV family is possible, enjoy!
We built our family dream house on a 1/2 acre with a pool, swing set, and sandbox. We were set. Then we sold it all to buy an RV and travel around the US with our 4 kids and 2 dogs!
We have been living in our RV for over 2 years now and it has been a roller coaster ride of emotions and experiences, but it has all been worth it.
You’re probably wondering how we went from living the American dream to becoming homeless nomads.
Here you go!
