There is nothing quite like suddenly losing a stable career, to be left reeling in financial panic. After I had lost my job in November, I found myself stumbling in every possible effort to generate income again.

The pressure to figure out reasonable and lucrative ways to make money when my degrees failed me, while trying to support a family after having suddenly lost major income, is of immense proportions.

Trying to create a better career while simultaneously sorting through financial chaos to meet a family’s basic needs, is not for the faint of heart.

Honestly, it is not even for the strong of heart.

Especially because to make money, in almost every career or business venture, you must first spend money. This applies to opening a business, investing, seeking training to succeed with entrepreneurial ideas, or learning a different trade.

Everything requires a fee, a down payment, or selling your birthrights.

Due to an ethical disagreement I had with my last employer, I lost valuable time to brainstorm my future career by prematurely losing my job and steady salary.
