What Can I Do?
Ok, I am sitting here listening to the Dave Ramsey show from yesterday via podcast. If you listened to the show from yesteray (September 10, 2010) you know that Dave was having lots of "We're DEBT FREE" calls. I just get so stirred up when I hear this. If you never have, you need to listen. He listens to the callers' stories then has them count down and they scream out "I'm DEBT FREE" in the loudest voice they can and he then plays the clip from Braveheart where William Wallace (Mel Gibson) yells out "FREEDOM!!!" I get chills every time this happens. I can't wait to be able to say that. As I listen to these stories, I begin thinking, "what can I do to make my shovel (income) larger?" I already work 25-30 hours a week at my job. I am paid pretty well for what I do and I love my job. I am paid hourly + commission so I have opportunity to broaden my shovel there. My hubby is military so the only room for raising income is when the government says so with cost of living raise, or rank advancement, which is still, in part, up to the government. So, I am open to ideas. What can I do to earn some extra money without shirking my obligations to my family and my church? My goal will be to compile a list of things and get some ads out or sell some things, etc. I have done some things already such as sign up with some mystery shopping websites, sign up with blogvertise.com to get assignments from them to write about here and get paid, call my old boss at the restaurant I worked at before my current job to see if she was needing some help one night a week or so. Maybe I could offer to walk dogs or something. I just know I want to taste the FREEDOM and I won't quit until I am there. I...CAN'T....WAIT!!!!!
