Multiple Flows: How Diversifying Your Income Can Transform Your Financial Future

When it comes to achieving financial stability and success, relying on a single income stream is no longer enough. In today's ever-changing economy, having multiple flows of income can be the key to unlocking your financial potential and achieving the financial freedom you desire. In this blog post, we'll explore the power of diversifying your income and how it can transform your financial future.

What is Diversifying Your Income?

Diversifying your income means having multiple sources of income that are not dependent on a single employer or industry. It involves creating various income streams that generate revenue from different sources, such as investments, rental income, side businesses, and freelance work. By diversifying your income, you reduce the risk of losing all your income in case one source dries up, and you open up opportunities to earn more.

I know I have felt trapped in dead end jobs over the years - I have taken on roles that I excel in but really didn't "fill my energy tank" or bring long-lasting joy.

Women Entrepreneurs, Start & Scale an Online Service-Based Business

 

As the world becomes increasingly digitized, women entrepreneurs have been given more opportunities than ever to monetize their expertise and create sustainable, profitable businesses. However, many women struggle with scaling their businesses and reaching the six-figure mark and beyond. That's where I come in - I'm helping women entrepreneurs unlock their full potential and achieve their business goals by monetizing their expertise.

Less than 9% of women entrepreneurs are earning six figures and less than 2% of women entrepreneurs are earning a million (Lesonsky, 2023)

Monetizing your expertise simply means turning your knowledge and skills into something tangible that people are willing to pay for. For women entrepreneurs, this can mean creating courses, consulting services, or coaching programs that leverage their unique expertise and experience. But it's not just about creating products - it's about understanding your audience and what they need, and tailoring your offerings to...

Searching beyond the candidate experience

It’s time candidates set boundaries and demand the best human experience beyond the search

The candidate experience is one of those buzzwords we all keep hearing about throughout the job search process. It has more to do with how employers are treating YOU as the candidate. As human beings, our time and energy are valuable so it’s important that employers understand and prioritize candidates. The ones that do will show this in obvious ways such as offering easier ways to apply online to make the application process shorter, communicating the number of interview rounds and time frame, follow-up, limited assessment tests, etc.

When I was talking to a candidate this week, he explained that if only employers would treat candidates like they treat their clients, the whole experience would be a lot more fair and smoother overall. And he has a really good point – you never know the doors and opportunities that a prospective candidate may offer a company.

4x ways to add value as a DE&I job seeker

In this week’s blog, I want to shed light on a specific topic around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I). As a mom of three kids who are multi-racial and a professional with ADHD and OCD, I proudly fall into this category. I have been trying to research and better educate myself on what exactly DE&I is all about for candidates and employers.

The HR Daily Advisor (2022) highlighted that in 2021, discussions about Black Lives Matter movement, Critical Race Theory, privilege, affirmative action, microaggression, and “Leading with Race” created controversy and misunderstanding.

In recent years, many companies have expanded their DE&I efforts in response to nationwide protection against social injustice as well as the growing recognition of companies that need to take a leadership role in promoting a more inclusive society. Many companies have improved their recruiting practices over the last several years to really embrace DE&I while others are...

If you hate your job, quit it. Today.

If you hate your job, quit it. Today.

… with a thought-out plan, of course.

Job seekers today are responsible for their own destinies. The great recession of 2021 has continued into 2022, with quit rates reaching levels last seen in the 1970s. While it’s important to understand the landscape of what it means to be navigating this unknown territory it’s helpful to understand you have options available at your fingertips. It’s each of our own responsibilities to educate ourselves and learn what those options are.

The pandemic era has opened up a world of possibilities for prospective job seekers to decide what type of organizations are best for them to work with. Glassdoor.com is a great resource for researching what a company has to offer job seekers (ex: benefits, remote opportunities, interview structure, etc). While other candidates have decided to build their own path in the process through starting their own business or transitioning to contract work for...
