Getting Your Daily Motivation Boost

Getting Your Daily Motivation BoostHello! Happy Halloween! Today I have a post written by a blog friend. Sara has been wanting to write an article on motivation for some time, but she didn’t think it would fit well on her debt-focused website. I swooped up the opportunity and her motivating post is below. 

I’m sure most of you have some sort of goal right now, and you probably need a little motivation boost. This post can help you out with that.

I love the Zig Ziglar quote “People say that motivation doesn’t last. Well neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily.”

Most people reading this will have some clearly defined money ambitions – clear all your debts, save for a house deposit, retire at 50, afford to be at home with the kids for a few years… The first few weeks or months after setting your goal can be exciting as you make plans and get them under way.

But after that things seem to go so slowly and those temptations to stray can seem to talk much louder in your head than the sensible voices in your head saying you can’t afford that…

10 Things I’ve Done To Make Extra Money

10 Things I've Done To Make Extra MoneyJust a little over one year ago, my life revolved around making extra money so that I could pay down my student loans quickly and so that I could stop living paycheck to paycheck.

Without my side hustle income, I really don’t know what life would be like. Side income allowed me to drastically change and improve my life more quickly than if I only had income from one source.

I’ve done a lot over the years to make extra income, and it helped me improve my life as I described above.

Due to this, I thought it would be fun to talk about the different ways I’ve side hustled in the past. Below are some of the things I’ve done to make extra money:

I Live in a 175 Square Foot Tiny Home – Sailboat Living

I Live in a 175 Square Foot Tiny Home - Sailboat LivingBack in August, I published Living In A 200 Square Foot Tiny House – Could You Do It? At the end, I asked if anyone was interested in taking part in an interview about their tiny home. Well, guest what? Someone said yes! 

I was able to interview the amazing Melody at Saving To Sail. She lives on a 175 square foot “tiny home” sailboat with her significant other and their 50 pound dog. It’s definitely a great read. Enjoy!

Hi, my name is Melody and I live on a sailboat.

Wow, that sounds like an introduction at a group therapy session! I’m sure some people secretly think to themselves that I need therapy once they learn that I, along with my significant other Chris and our 50lb Dutch Shepherd, have less than 175 square feet in our boat cabin! [Read more...]
