On my blog I usually talk about balancing family life with work and working from home, so today is a little bit different. This post is for the more adventurous amongst you.
In our lifetimes, most of us will never go away to another country for long enough to make a living for ourselves and thrive but the opportunity is definitely there.
There are endless opportunities across the world to build a career for yourself or even just to make some quick cash through the summer. You could be working as a bartender for a season, investing in property and then going into subsale HDB, or even blogging about your experiences for future visitors.
If you are feeling inspired to go abroad to make money this year, here are some of the ways you can do it:
This is the question. Where should you invest your hard earned cash?
When looking at our finances, we usually try and see where we can save and make money. There are lots of ways to save money; by shopping smarter for both food and luxuries, going green in all aspects of your life and cutting out unnecessary bills are just a few of ways you can save.
There are also lots of different ways you can make extra money in your spare time. However, many people find that they don’t have much spare time. They already lead busy lives, so trying to add in time for more money making activities can sometimes prove difficult.
If this is you, why not look into a venture where your money can grow without you doing anything? Investing your money can be risky if you don’t know what you’re doing, and even then there is still risk involved. You therefore, need to make sure that you get advice before investing and that you only ever invest the amount you are willing to lose.
Not taking into account having children, do you think you’ve ever really had a great night’s sleep? You know, the kind where you hit the pillow at a really reasonable time (aka way before midnight) feeling tired, but not absolutely drained. You then head off into a slumber within minutes and sleep soundless, completely uninterrupted. You stay that way for eight hours before you wake up naturally, and, you’ve guessed it, that natural wake up call is bright and early too!
It sounds idyllic doesn’t it, but if it’s something completely alien to you, then you’re not alone. This is definitely the kind of sleep that so many of us want but can’t achieve. But why?
There are actually people who manage to get a restful night’s sleep regularly. They go to bed feeling stress-free and ready to sleep and then wake up feeling fully refreshed and not like they need to keep sleeping for another week.
If you’re someone that always fights with the alarm and would prefer to sleep all weekend instead of socializing, maybe it’s time for you to get on board with something new. Obviously, whatever it is that you’re doing now isn’t working, but this doesn’t mean that having a great night’s sleep is impossible for you. Instead, you just need to shake up your routine and really work to improve your sleeping situation.
It’s a known fact that the quality of your sleep can affect your overall health and wellbeing. This is something we should all be mindful of. So let’s take a look at ten steps you can take to give yourself the peaceful night’s sleep you crave.
When you’re trying to save money, the first thing you should do is examine your monthly budget. Most of us budget with previous spending habits in mind, which can lead us to be a little too generous in certain areas.
If you need to tighten your belt for a specific purpose, then examining your budget figures is the quickest and most effective way of controlling your expenditure.
Below are three areas where the vast majority of people can make instant savings, without having to break contracts or damage their quality of life too much. If you’re looking to reduce your outgoings, then these simple fixes make for a productive starting point.
Millennials get a bit of a bad deal generally. They have to struggle in a difficult economy, yet everybody says that all of their money troubles come from them being lazy and spending too much cash on takeaway coffee and pizza.
Whether that’s true or not, there’s no denying that Millennials don’t have as much disposable income as their parents did. That makes saving money and investing pretty hard. In fact, most people of this generation will tell you that they don’t bother investing or saving at all because there’s no point.
So, here’s the thing. Millennials are capable of investing money and putting aside savings for the future. They just tend to make some mistakes along the way which in turn, makes them believe it’s impossible.
If you’re a young person and struggling to save money, you’re probably making the following three mistakes:
