I'm not sure why, but for some reason my alarm clock is set to Rush Radio. So each morning I am awakened to loud, obnoxious voices complaining about our country. It's definitely a good way to get me out of bed. A strategy I am sure my husband is using to get me downstairs to start the coffee.
But last Sunday morning a different program was airing. I don't know the details as the show had already begun but an author, who had written a book on how to become millionaire, was being interviewed. Honestly after the toll free number had been given for the 25th time I began to tune out, thinking it was time to get out of bed and start the coffee. But I did catch a few sentences that intrigued me. Her basic premise for the book is that it's not enough, anymore, to just keep your job and sink your money in a 401K. You have to have extra cash coming in. DUH! I knew that. But she went on to say everyone is doing something for which they are not getting paid. Also most people have a hobby that they can turn into an extra income. Hmmm. That got me thinking. One other point of interest she said is this--you have to think of yourself as a success in order to be one. Wow. Now my brain is whirling. I've tried ventures in the past, so I'm not afraid to try something different. I have a few ideas to mull over. I'll keep you posted on what happens next.
