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.Read more

There comes a certain age in your child’s life when they start doing stuff, at least a few, on their own. This can start with walking and eating to being able to study the things around them. When such an age is reached, parents must start to plan their education. Today, there are multiple platforms that offer kids an extremely fun way to learn. Kindergarten happens to be that first step where parents admit their child for his or her bright future.
In kindergarten, there are different levels where children of different age groups are admitted. Then accordingly, their levels are upgraded based on the skills they develop. Their learning of how to strengthen their social skills, understand the surroundings and many more plays a major role in the same. The programs and eligibility may differ from one kindergarten to another even in the same region. Hence, it is always wise that you do good research on the same first and only then get an admission for your child.
What Skills to Expect from your Child in Kindergarten?
Throughout the session in a kindergarten, your child will be busy with activities and lessons of a wide background. Each study contributes towards enhancing and developing him or her for both his personal and professional fronts. So, here are the 5 changes that you can expect from your kid who has started or will start going to the kindergarten:
Reading Skills: You may not expect your child to be very fluent in reading words, but you will be proud to find how he or she recognizes them easily. They will learn word families, letter sounds and rhyme one word with another.
Behavior Skills: Almost every kindergarten teaches its students to improve their behavioral skills. The professionals at Montessori suggest this study to be a significant factor in shaping the different stages of a child’s life. They learn how to speak when in public areas, how to respond to elders, the importance of sharing and in the later stage, handle conflicts.
Healthy Habits: The basics of how to keep the body healthy and the various steps to be taken in the day-to-day lives are taught. A few examples for this include brushing teeth twice a day, washing hands with soap and water and drying hands using clean towels. There’s No Greater Wealth Than Your Family’s Health
Environmental Skills: Children are taught the significance of valuing Mother Nature. Teachers in kindergartens introduce students with multiple activities such as planting seeds, watering them and so on. Additionally, they are also given simple tasks of caring for the plants they sowed till they grow into a decent size for the next steps.
Social Skills: The social skills of children differ greatly from each other. While some are introverts, there are others who are ambiverts and also extroverts. In kindergarten, children are taught the skills to socialize with people of their own age as well as elders.
To conclude, kindergarten is the first and major step towards sculpting your child’s future. Hence, you must ensure finding the right school for your child and do complete research on the same.
