Many families are digging themselves out of the financial hole that the 2008 fallout landed them in. They may be employed, but with the debt burden and cost of living that most are carrying it seems almost impossible to get ahead. Finding ways to expand income potential is of primary importance and doing it in a way that jibes with your values and passion is of utmost importance.
Studies show that people whose work is filled with meaning and purpose and is driven by their deeply held values are much more satisfied, productive and profitable than those who are not driven by values. So what does this have to do with you and increasing your income potential?
You may be in a J-O-B (aka “just over broke”) and looking for opportunities to work in conjunction with your current responsibilities or wanting to make a break and organize your life around what matters most to you. Take a look at the plethora of home-based businesses out there and think about what you are passionate about.
What would get you out of bed in the morning with joy and anticipation if you were your own boss?
Do you get all stirred up when you think about health and wellness, cooking methods, environmental issues, financial security, men’s-wear, making women feel great about their look? Do you want to make a couple of hundred extra dollars per month, or are you shooting for 6-figures?
The wonderful thing about home-based businesses is that they set the course, and you set the pace. The opportunities and training are available, it’s up to you to decide what you want.
It’s an amazing privilege to live out my values, passion and calling in a way that allows me to do well by doing good, all while organizing my life around what matters most to me – not missing out on my kids’ activities or time with the family. It’s a great life!!
