How to Make Money Online by Losing Weight (Not as Crazy as it Sounds)

It may seem a little unusual for me to write a blog post about losing weight.  It’s a bit outside the scope of what I usually write about.

But…I came across a way where you can make a little bit of money by losing weight, so why not, right?

This certainly isn’t for everyone, because not everyone needs to lose weight.  I don’t need to lose weight (I’m not obese or anything), but I’m probably close to being overweight, so I can definitely stand to lose 10-20 pounds. Add that to the fact that I’m having a beach wedding in about 8 months, so it couldn’t hurt to shed a few pounds for the pictures that I may look at once and never again. :D

Allow me to explain exactly what I’m referring to…

Why I’m Done Making New Year’s Resolutions (And What I’m Doing Instead)

New Year’s resolutions are fun.  The new year is one of the only times of the year that people come up with massive goals – and who doesn’t like dreaming big?

That’s part of the problem.

A new year’s resolution is a great way to set yourself up for failure, I’ve found.  It’s not to say that people can’t live up to the lofty resolution that they’ve set, but let’s face it:

Most people don’t.

How to Save Lots of Time and Money: Hacking Your Everyday Necessities

This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for awhile, because it’s something that has really changed a lot of the recurring purchases I make.

One of my primary criticisms against coupons was that there is a continuous time investment that can put you into a mindset of “saving mode” instead of “earning mode.”

What I’m going to discuss today is very different – it’s something I’ve implemented in my life that actually saves me both time and money. It’s not for everyone, so you need to decide if this is something you want to implement for yourself.

Why I Hate Coupons

Don’t get me wrong.  Buying something at a discount is almost always a good thing, and that’s basically what a coupon accomplishes.  Coupons on their own really aren’t so bad, but that’s not why I hate them.

For a brief moment, I did think that coupons could play a major role in my life’s overall financial strategy, but I quickly found that I was wrong.

The Plight of the Wantrepreneur

I’ve done a lot of thinking lately about my online business, and where it fits into the context of the rest of my life.

People often stress out about not having enough opportunity, but I’ve found that sometimes having too much opportunity can be just as overwhelming.  Time is forever a limiting factor, and it’s this limitation that creates wantrepreneurs instead of entrepreneurs.

As I reflect on my past 3+ years working online, I thought it would be interesting to write it all out in a blog post.  Warning: This post is a lot of rambling, but I promise to keep it fairly brief and concise. :)

“I’m Too Busy.” Sound Familiar?

This is something I struggle with on an annual basis (during tax season).  I have a real job – one that exists very far away from my internet projects.  I have no problem meeting the obligations of that job, even if it’s stressful at times.

Sometimes, however, the real stress isn’t about what I’m doing at my job – it’s what I’m not doing outside my job because “I’m too busy.”  I have projects that I’d like to be working on, but at the same time, I also want to enjoy what little free time I have outside of work (which tends to happen when you’re working 60+ hours a week).

So how do you fight this urge to simply say, “I’m too busy”?  How do you maintain productivity with your side projects when your “real” life is consuming most of your time? This post will be short and sweet, but hopefully it’ll generate some good discussion.
