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.

Be A YouTube Partner and Earn Money

Do you know you can be a YouTube Partner and earn money at the same time? How? Just keep reading and absorbing everything I will share in this blog post.

If you love filming yourself or you enjoy taking videos and you use YouTube as a storage of all your videos, then why don't you tie up with YouTube and become a partner of it. In doing so, you will earn money aside from the fact that you enjoy things you love doing. Of course, you should have enough size of audience who will watch, like and share what you uploaded. Because the way you make money out of your videos is through views and interactions they made with ads.

Earn As Much As You Can

I'm an avid fan of reading lots of books ranging from personal development, self-help, motivational, inspirational and business books. And most of the books I read suggest that we can earn as much as we want because the only determiner of it is our mind (Whatever our mind limits us to do, earn and achieve). "Whatever our mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve" by Napoleon Hill.

If you have a full-time job where you earn your primary income in a form of salary, that is an active or linear income. But if you think that the money you get from it is not enough, then no one prohibits you from looking for more and increase your cash flow. I'm sure you have other skills or talents that can help you earn on the side. Be it writing, singing or helping as long as you use it to give value to other people.
