                 Earlier today I was listening to The Minimalists Podcast with Joshua Fields Millburn, author of “Everything that Remains” (one of my top 10 books) and he got a question from a reader that asked whether he needs to keep his college diploma, or if he should get rid of it to further his journey of minimalism. Millburn responded to the question by asking,

Mindset shift: Your self-image is preventing you from getting the results you want

mindset

Mindset is the most important thing you can possibly focus on when it comes to creating the life you want for yourself. As Victor Pride of Bold and Determined says, “The how is nothing. Mindset is everything.”

One aspect of mindset that too many people ignore is self-image, and how a simple mindset shift in your self-image can make all the difference when in comes to accomplishing your goals. Too often people choose a specific measurable benchmark in some area and let that benchmark become the goal itself, and because of that it becomes inseparably linked to their self-image, which actually makes it much more difficult to reach that benchmark.

How to get an easy $200 to $800 in a few hours from Uber

uber

Uber offers a great way to make a few hundred extra bucks with just a few hours of work:

If you live in a city with Uber and have a car that qualifies, you can use the special promo code bnu9k3kuue at uber.com when you sign up as a driver. This code will get you a sign-up bonus of anywhere from $150 to $750, depending on the city. All you have to do is sign up, send them images of a few documents like your registration and insurance, and then complete around 20 trips. This won’t take more than a few hours total, and you will clear $200 to $800! Easy money! After that you don’t even have to continue driving for Uber anymore if you don’t want to, though it’s a great way to make extra money any time you need it.

Is getting rich with your blog a ‘fairy tale’ ?

160229_r27719-900

Last month Newsweek ran an article online entitled “Growing rich by blogging is a high tech fairy tale”. The author, Daniel Lyons, details how he exhausted himself writing upwards of 20 posts a day, eventually culminating with the New York Times featuring him and his blog. As a result he got 500,000 hits in one day, and 1.5 million for the month. The grand monetary result of all that traffic? Just over $1000  in advertising revenue for the month. He soon shuttered his blog in disgust, declaring that getting rich with your blog is impossible.

Last month’s earnings – February 2016

Monthly Earnings Feb 2016

 

Every month I will list my online earnings from the past month to give you some insight into at least a few ways money can be made on line. Whether you are trying to earn extra money as a side-hustle, or totally break free from the job paradigm and own your time, there are a lot of options for income generation and most of them are possible for anybody. All of the work I did could have been done in addition to working a full time job. I currently choose to live off less and enjoy the freedom, but you don’t have to be willing to live off of $1500 or $2500 a month for all of these techniques to be worthwhile. In fact, many of my more lucrative projects are the ones that involve the least ongoing time investment.

Keep in mind that some income sources might not directly involve the internet, but as they still further the cause of freedom I will include them.

Also keep in mind that I do my record keeping on a cash accounting method, so I only count the expenses and income for the month where they actually hit the account, not when the sale or purchase may have taken place. So for instance, the Youtube revenue was actually earned in January, but was deposited this month.

It is important to remember that I while I choose to do all this as my sole source of income right now so I don’t have to work a normal job, I could have done all this and made the same amount of money while working 40 hours a week at another endeavor if I just wanted to make a bunch of extra money.

Here are my results from February 2016 with some brief explanations:
