Money, Money, Money….

I think I have mentioned it before in this space that my dear friend WordPress is quite telepathic enough to know my thoughts and need, thus providing prompts that echoes my thoughts, even if he is stingy in meeting those needs.1455545985148[1]

I spent a good number of my years before now, racing along the corporate corridor in search of the big corner office.

It was without doubt a worthwhile growth experience. I enjoyed my corporate ladder years with all it’s attendant stress and perks, but my life is turning several new and beautiful bends and there are some nuts in the fire of my writing life, which hopefully should yield ample dividends.

I love to keep a positive outlook and frame of mind because it is always better.

I got into blogging for several reasons asides the obvious reason that I am passionate about writing.

One of the reasons that I would like to explore henceforth, is how to turn my passion into my pay master, that way it’s a beautiful win-win situation.

I know that writers write because they love to write, but they equally have to live and what better way than to earn from the sweat of your passion.

The Daily PostΒ Money For Nothing.

If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.

  1. I hope you find a way. I know my dear husband would dearly love for me to deeply understand and implement the meaning of the word ‘compensation’ when it comes to my artistic side. I think what I’ve always lacked is an agent or a manager someone, to take care of the business side of things that I can’t reconcile with this thing I have for artistic purity. So…I think you are a star, Jacqueline and all stars need an agent.;-) My father-in-law, a very successful man, had the best attitude toward money as of anyone I’ve ever known, “It’s just a way to keep score, honey.” He did like win but was never greedy or materialistic. He created abundance and shared it with others. I hope you find your way to doing the same.

  2. hehehe My sister WordPress is mindreading you, isn’t it? Passion is important but there comes a time when one deserves compensation for the labour of love. If not for anything, for the contribution to the literary world (in your case).

    I would say I am in my dream job, working when I want and where I want. I have also worked for big league Fortune 500 companies but now I am winding it down. You know, as we get older, other things begin to matter to us and I am blessed to have it all panning out the way I envisaged/planned.

    Good luck as you realize all the reasons for which you started blogging! I’ll be right here supporting you on that journey. πŸ™‚

  3. I am here in my dream job and have been for 15 years. I started in publishing/printing dreaming of working for a publication I saw on the newsstand. So here I am and I love it. I was blessed with open doors and so many wonderful opportunities and I’m so thankful for everything and everyone that helped me along the way. I love your posts! They are wonderful! Blessing to you!
