Welcome to my blog. :)
I had a full time job but my evenings and weekends were free. So, I found jobs that occupied me on some evenings and on weekends. I was teaching students taking enrichment classes at night and I was also a private tutor on weekends. These paid more on a per hour basis than my full time job. ;)
If we have free time, we can either think of monetising it or using it for enjoyment. When we choose to monetise it, not only do we make more money but we also have less time to spend money. It brings making money and saving money to another level. ;p
When we monetise our free time, to be quite pragmatic, it should be doing something that pays more on a per hour basis. Of course, this is not a hard and fast rule.
For some, they might do something they enjoy and yet be paid to do it in their free time even if it doesn't pay well. Being paid to do something we enjoy doing doesn't sound like a bad thing, does it?
Want to achieve financial freedom sooner than later?
Monetising our free time will definitely help.
Then, what is the next step?
That is another topic and here is a hint as to why it is important:
The best insurance in life.
1. A young father of two says money not enough.
2. How my student went from zero to hero?
3. Is it wrong to be idealistic and live the good life?
