If you’re someone who longs for freedom from the tyranny of the 9-5 workplace, who is underpaid and overworked, and who wakes up with a sinking feeling every Monday morning after a wonderful weekend, then you have probably dreamed about starting your own online marketing business. Unfortunately, if you don’t know how to build a website, can’t figure out how to develop your own product, and just cringe at the thought of self-promotion, you probably figure you don’t have a chance. Well, this is far from the truth.

How to Make More Money (Without Getting a Second Job)

For many people there comes a point in their life when money becomes tight. It happened to me both during and shortly after finishing college. In order to turn things around for myself I had to take a second and even a third job temporarily in order to make ends meet. Fortunately I was eventually able to make the necessary changes in my life that I needed and now my financial future looks brighter. But, if you want to make more money without getting a second job, there are ways to do that too. 1. Ask for a Raise One of the obvious ways you could earn more at your current job without having to beat the streets to find a second one is to ask for a raise. Unlike what I had to do, you wouldn’t wear yourself down as much by not having to take on a second job. However, if you are going to ask your job for a raise you should first make sure you are performing well at what you are already doing.

When you have had a really bad day at work you may be tempted to throw in the towel and quit. At least, speaking from personal experience, I know I have certainly been tempted to give my notice when the going gets rough. Of course, when this happens, you could also take a different approach. You could ask for a day off, for instance, in order to simply take a break and recharge your batteries so to speak. But what if you know you can’t ask because you will be turned down? If this, or something similar, has happened to you, have you ever played hooky to get a day off work as a result? Have You Ever Played Hooky?

How to Stop Obsessing About the Perfect Job

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average late born baby boomer changed jobs every 2-3 years between the ages of 18 and 48. That’s a lot of different jobs over a 30 year period!
