So, it looks like I will be certified to teach Permaculture Design in two more months. I’m not sure how that translates into making money, yet. As someone without any experience yet, I can’t imagine that I can really charge very much. Maybe I can give some free classes at the library to start – a 2 hour introduction, perhaps? And see who would be interested in a longer class. Or who might want me to design their property. I don’t know how easy of a sell it will be, as I currently have no land and no actual experience. But if I can make $100 in a weekend, then that will be a start.
$100 – 14% for social security = $14
$100 – 34% fed income tax = $34
Net earnings on $100 = $52
Not much, but $200/month could support my amazon.com habit :) 3 days ago
I dunno, but I am tired putting all our extra $ into paying of debt. 3 weeks ago
But gotta finish my self review first! 2 months ago
Being such a thing that has no true end of the scale. I intend to leave this for quite some time. Until I feel that making more money isn’t something that will make me happier. Maybe I do have a limit to my desire for making more money, but until I discover that limit I will continue aiming to make more money 3 months ago
How I did it: Although in the end I did get a new job and I am now earning more money, there are many ways to complete this goal. I did rent out my son's old room for a few months and that did help out my finances. I could have made more money in other ways as well such as selling items on Ebay or having a yard sale, but I did not end up using those options.
Another way to make my money go farther was to be a very frugal shopper buying things only on sale and using discounts and coupons as much as possible. Even with more money in my pocket now, I plan on saving it instead of spending it since I am over 50 now and retirement doesn't seem that far away anymore. Read how I did it… 3 months ago
