Have you ever been frustrated with your money? I know when we were first starting out, there were times where I felt like we knew where we wanted to go, but we weren't making the progress we hoped for.

Or maybe you're looking at that big pile of debt and it looks like it's impossible to tackle with the income you have.

Perhaps you'd love to retire early, but it's such a far off goal.

Want to make extra money to help you pay down debt or explore a new career? Chris Guillbeau shares how to launch a profitable side hustle in 27 days!
 

Give Yourselves Margin with a Side Hustle

One of the biggest objections to not saving or paying down debt I keep hearing is 
“We don’t have any extra cash.”
 
Makes sense. If you don’t have any extra cash, it’s hard to pay down that debt or build and emergency fund.
 
Typically there are few ways you can save money on your expenses or negotiate better deals with certain bills like cable or insurance. 
 
But sometimes it's not just a spending issue. 
It's an earning one. 
 
After spending 40 hours or so working,  you're not necessarily looking to take a second job and being tied down to another fixed schedule for so-so pay.  
 
So is there a way for you to earn more on the side? Perhaps tapping into one of your talents? 
 
And what if that income stream can give you margin or a buffer so you can finally grow your emergency fund, knock out some of that debt, and maybe explore a new career? How would you feel then?
 
Excited? Thrilled? Ready to go? Or are you a bit skeptical and tired of the hype you see online about side hustles? 
 
Let's be real. If it was really that easy to drum up such an income stream, then most people would be all over that. 
 
However, that doesn't mean it's not doable. It means you have to be smart about the time you invest when launching.

Debt can be an enormous burden for many couples. Learn how you two can work together and get the resources you need to deal with depression and debt. 

 

This episode is part of the Suicide Prevention Awareness Month blog and now podcast tour in partnership with Debt Drop.

This is a heavier than normal topic, but I'm afraid too many people and couples suffer in silence. My focus today is giving you some jumping points and ideas.

You two can then discuss them and work out what's best for you.

I want to clear upfront - I've never had to deal with depression and debt, but I've dealt with both.

I remember clearly the anxiety and stress I had over debt.  Sleepless nights trying to figure which bill to pay with a limited income.

I've had periods in my life where depression robbed me of joy.  There was no specific trigger, but it was a win to get out of bed some days.

That said - I am not a medical professional.

I just want to share some encouragement and tips that have helped me and others.

Millions of Americans want to start a business, but where do you begin? Entrepreneur and start up co-founder Will DeShazo shares how you can find the right gig along with balancing marriage and entrepreneurship!

 

Finding Balance with Marriage and Entrepreneurship

We've had a quite a few shows about being a happily married entrepreneur I've been sharing my ups and downs working from home.

I've also interviewed couples who are running a business together like Justin and Rebekah Rhodes with Abundant Permaculture, couples who ventured on their own career paths like LaTisha Styles who explained how she and her husband successfully support each other.

And hearing them, you get this sense that's they're well-oiled machines. Things working out.

But what about that beginning stage?

How does a side hustle fit in with your current job and your marriage?

In this special episode Millennovator co-founder Will DeShazo and I discuss:

  • how you can start earning some cash while exploring career options
  •  the framework that will help you find the right gig
  • opportunities for you to give yourself a raise at your current position using a side hustle
