First, I aspire to earn more money as I learn more things in life and gain more experience so that I can share the fruits of labors with the people whom I love most and the needy who cross my life paths.
To increase our earnings, we:
- learn expertise and skills. Do you notice that the word learn contains the word earn? We need wisdom to create, preserve, and share wealth.
- adopt abundance mindset, discard scarcity mindset. Affirm to ourselves: somewhere someone is looking for exactly what we have to offer.
- solve problem(s)
- can change jobs to obtain better packages. According to Honey Panda, financial sector professionals often jump ships to accelerate their careers and obtain higher earnings.
- build our connection capitals through face-to-face interactions, social networking such as linkedIn.
- be a tutor/teacher
- be a freelancer
- be a consultant
- be a landlord
- rent our stuff
