While working your way through the “Steps Toward a Better Future” there are many financial things to consider, two of which are to bring your income up and your outgo down.
Some of my clients over the past few months have either come up with an idea or wanted to do something they were passionate about to potentially bring their household income up. The problem was that they weren’t exactly sure on how to go about getting their ideas out there.
Here are my thoughts that may or may not apply to all situations. Start blogging about what it is that you are thinking of doing. This will do endless things that will help you make better decisions going forward. Think about it, on average 7 to 9 ideas out of 10 that you have plain just don’t work out. Why not test the waters and potential feedback from your readers before taking the plunge on a idea? Not only that, it will cause you to become more creative because you start to put your thoughts and ideas in writing. The best part is that you can start doing this for free.
This is from my experience, so if you want to use a different method, please do. Regardless, just start doing something!!
Like a lot of people I know, and for myself, wordpress.com was the place to start. Though I didn’t understand at the time, starting with this made my life a whole lot easier today. As time goes on you may want to move into having a wordpress site that gives you 100% control. For making this possible I use Blue Host and Catalyst Theme (affiliate links).
If you are reading this and you have an idea or a passion and creating an income isn’t part of the process, this is still an excellent thing to start. Give yourself a voice that lets the world benefit from what you have to offer. Both Laurie and I have started to do just that. Feel free to check them out here LaurieBethGreene.com and here Our360Family.com.
It’s all about the process. Don’t let another day go by only to look back and wish you had started something yesterday. All it takes are baby steps to change your future.
