Do you have an amazing home-based business idea that you haven’t yet made into a reality?

Or maybe you have some extra time on your hands and you’re looking for ways to make some money on the side?

Me too – for both of these things.

That’s why this month I’m working through a new book called Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days by Chris Guillebeau. During the course of this series, I will keep a log as I work through the steps outlined in the book.

So, what is a side hustle?

Good question. It’s a small business or project that you create and run alongside your full-time job.

Even better, if you have enough profitable side hustles, or if you have one that grows enough, you may not need a full-time job at all.

What if the side hustle doesn’t work out? Well, that’s easy – start again.

Do You Have A Plan For Your Aging Parents?

Do You Have A Plan For Your Aging Parents?

The odds that we’ll die in our own beds at age 99 after having lived a completely healthy and independent life are, unfortunately, not in our favour.

The most likely scenario is we’ll have first spent many years in a retirement home or even in the care of our own children.

The years before this increasingly inevitable role reversal are lived in hope and denial...We mostly avoid talking about it.

After all, who wants to think about the day we’ll lose our independence? When we’ll have to sell everything we own and leave the house we raised our kids in?

Who wants to talk about death, or the possibility of dementia, a period when it will be more difficult for caregivers to make decisions on our behalf?

It’s difficult.

But no matter how much time we have left, it’s never too early to start planning. Keep reading » about Do You Have A Plan For Your Aging Parents?
