Women’s Money Week Day 3: Non-Traditional Income
March 5, 2014
Non-traditional income is not my priority. My finances are best served by me focusing on my traditional career, and my well-being is best served by me using my free time for exercise, hobbies, friends, and fun.
I prefer to work for a company rather than freelance (at least for now). Flexible schedules aren’t really necessary at this phase of my life, except for the freedom to travel when I need to. Starting a business is more risky and more work than keeping my career.
The only area where I would consider trying to get side-income would be if one of my hobbies was profitable. Unfortunately, the only remotely possible option would be blogging, and I don’t have any desire to turn this into a profitable hobby.
Non-traditional income is an important goal to many people, but I’m personally better served by focus on my career.
This post is written as part of Women’s Money Week. While it is a short post that doesn’t add a lot to the conversation, I did want to point out that side income isn’t always the best place for people (women included) to spend time on.
