Invest and Educate Yourself

I believe that in order for you to earn money, you should develop and harness your skills. Your acquired skill when continuously polish will bring you more money once your employer found out you are offering the best service that no one can give. And that's why this blog post is born.

The reason why I decided to write this topic is because I am going through in a situation wherein I want to learn how to write a book and publish it. I badly want it and learn the ins and outs of publishing a book. I keep visiting Brian Tracy's sale page wherein it offers the said course but the problem is the amount I should pay. I need almost 500 US dollars in order to get in. I also stumbled on the website of Miss. Sha Nacino, a Filipino girl who teaches the same subject. However, I need almost 20,000 pesos in order to be included in her online course.

Budget Your Money

Budgeting is different from saving, thrifting, or depriving you of things you desire. So don't get me wrong upon you see or read the title of this post.

Anyway, what is budgeting your money? Basically, it is the allocation or distribution of your money to all your expenses. For example, you have a budget for food that has a corresponding amount. The same also to all your bills, necessities, and don't forget your luxuries.

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.
