Earn Real Money From Your Blog

If you want to make money from your blog, be serious about it and treat it as a real business.

What I mean about that is don't depend on free stuff only and operate without spending a dime. Purchase a domain name either from these two well-known and trusted domain registrar: godaddy.com or namecheap.com. Consider also the storage or placeholder of your web pages or blog by buying web hosting. It is where you have a complete control over your website or blog including the design and code-behind.

Save Money By Supporting Our Small Time Vendors

If you want to save money from buying things you really need, all you have to do is to look for alternative items that are close to the quality of expensive counterpart. I don't want you to save tons of money but in return, you'll get crappy and garbage stuff. Support and buy from our small time vendors and sellers because these people really need money in order to survive. It is their living and without sales, they will have nothing to serve on their table.

Products in malls are 6x expensive compare to the one you found in small markets. Why do you think so? I think because people who are selling inside of malls, pay rent to have their space aside from the fact that the place is air-conditioned and people usually do their shopping inside. But try to compare what you can purchase from malls and streets, the quality is almost close and you can't deny their similarities.

Anticipate the Worst Case Scenario and Have a Backup Plan

I just want to share this true story that happened to my ex co-employees in my previous employer.

Without a warning, they were out of work due to the company they worked for had lost clients. In order to prevent the company from being bankrupt, it had no other choice but to fire most of their workforce. And that's where a sad part comes in. If you're unprepared, you'll automatically lose. Besides in today's generation, it's so hard to find a job that is similar to what you do. So if you badly need a replacement job, don't be choosy. In the end, it pays off if you know a lot.

Control Your Spending

Curb, control or budget your spending should be included in your watch out list so you know where your money goes to. It's absurd you complain that your salary is not enough and you wonder where your money went.

I already mentioned many times in my previous posts that you should learn how to pay yourself first before other people. In that way, you accumulate money that you don't need at the moment which could be served as savings, emergency fund or perhaps cash to use in investing (be it time deposit, mutual fund, UITF or stocks).

Read As Much As You Can

Learning does not stop after you graduate from college. In fact, it is a continuous life process.

If you want to achieve something in life, then you should keep studying and learning. And whatever you put in your mind has a big impact on whatever you wanted to happen in your life. If you put positive and useful stuff, obviously you'll get great and awesome things. However, a negative and useless crap will only lead you to an unproductive and lifeless outcome.
