It’s no secret that one of the ways to be financially secure is to have multiple income streams. If one part of your income crumbles, you’ve got other things to fall back on and soften the monetary blow. With the displeasure I’m feeling with my current position, the more I realize that I need to break free from the mold of what I think is a “normal” job and try my hand at some new ventures. Of course, I’m not going to just quit my job (I like having health insurance right now!), but wouldn’t it be awesome if I could make enough money from other income streams that I could at least work part time?
I keep thinking about what I’m passionate about. I want to do things that I love, things that really make me feel good about myself. I enjoy making soap, photographing people, and making natural body care products. I also enjoy teaching others how to save money and live a greener life (if that wasn’t obvious 😉 )
Now I just need to figure out what to focus on (if I should focus on one thing) and tweak that until I get something that works for me. It’s so hard because I’m afraid of failure. I know that’s not the way I should look at it. I feel like there’s so much competition out there that I’m not going to succeed. I need to go into it with a good attitude and see how it works out.
Do you have multiple income streams? What could you do to create some?
