What comes to mind when I say ...
Is it images of wealth and old money that you only see in movies? Well, that's not what we're discussing here in today's contributed post.
Nope. Today, we're talking about how you can take your family money (the money you're earning right now) and build on it.

By putting your family's money to work in the following ways. Read more
How much money are you saving for retirement?
Yes, that's the age old personal finance and money question if there ever was one. We all want to be given "the number" to shoot for and desire to know how close (or how far) we are to that target.
If you're like my wife and I, you wonder whether you are doing it right or not. You are constantly discussing money matters over dinner or during a long car ride.
Maybe you worry about how you will be able to afford your own home. If you do own a home, you may worry about having enough money for the mortgage each month.
Then, there's saving for children. You need clothes, food, diapers, toys, and who knows what else. One day, you will want to send them to college. So, there is saving for that.
Finally, you probably don't want to work for the rest of your life. I know I don't. So, you need to plan for retirement somehow. However, that seems so far off and you just put off doing anything about it.
So, depending on your situation, you are likely asking yourself one of two questions. If you aren't saving, you will want to know how you can get started. On the other hand, if you are saving, you will want to know if you're saving enough.
In order to answer those questions, you have to know your goals and understand the process to achieve them. You also have to make sure you are budgeting properly by using an app like Personal Capital and know your numbers.
Saving money is not a one-size fits all concept. Sure, there are guidelines and we will discuss some of those. But, you need to customize these guidelines to fit your lifestyle and your family's end game.Read more

We all want a way to bring in more money. These days, many people turn to side businesses to make money and the same goes for yours truly. In today's contributed post, you'll learn the 3 best side businesses to make money this year and beyond.
Many people in the US are struggling on a low income from their jobs and have to find other ways of making more money to financially survive. Although the unemployment figures are better than they have been for a long time, many of the jobs are in the lower paid sectors, and those already working have not had the pay increases they would normally expect. On average, pay increased by just 5 cents an hour, which is only noticeable once the IRS has had their share.
This has resulted in more than 7.5 million Americans holding down more than one job. Even high numbers of the population have side-hustles to help them financially. In fact, it is said that more than 44 million people in the US earn extra money this way.Read more
Do you want to learn how to make money? I'm not just talking about from your job. I'm talking about a side business or side hustle.
You can make money doing these things online, from home, and even with an injury or disability. After all, it's tough out there. We all need ways to bring in more income and we want to know how to make money fast.
Consider Steve Chou from My Wife Quit Her Job. He and his wife, Jennifer, started a few online businesses generating six figures. There first was an online store.
This was all centered around Steve's desire to learn how to make money (and more of it) to support their lifestyle so his wife could stay at home with their children. She was making six figures from her and losing that would be quite the blow.
In all honesty, that is part of the reason I started this blog. I wanted to allow my wife to stay at home with our son (and now daughter as well). It wasn't a decision we took lightly, but learning ways to make more money online has helped ease the financial pressure significantly.
We explore how to make money online (and offline) today based on research of my own and contributions from others. I hope you enjoy it and let us know if you have any questions.
