You don’t want to do the same thing all day. Wouldn’t it be nice to do some blog work for a couple of hours followed by some survey-taking? You could spend part of your day researching a major article that you want to write without having to worry about not making money. Diversity allows you to do what you want without compromising your financial security.
Career #1: CEO. It’s no secret that CEO’s aren’t no slouches when it comes to payday. This last year we’ve heard a lot of chatter about whether or not these CEO’s deserve the top pay that they’ve received.

I make out two goal plans — monthly goals and yearly goes. First, I start with my monthly goals. Make a table with columns. Your columns could be like this or similar: income, queries to send, articles to sell, chapters to write and jobs salary.
Remember this- your customers and prospective clients are savvy. They are smart. They aren’t dough heads.

You can easily follow up on mentions, RT’s and what others are saying about your company.
But let me make one thing very clear- you do not make a 6-figure income on Social media playing Farmville or Yoville or Craphead or any of those other games online. These were created by very smart marketers to lure people in who have too much time on their hands or who are trying to block sometime out in real life.
For this part of your goal list, begin by setting a monthly income you would like to achieve. And as I mentioned in the beginning, don’t set your writing goals so high that you won’t be able to achieve them — start low and increase them as you go along. For example, set a monthly goal of 0. To reach this goal you will want to try and earn 0 in one month. This isn’t too high, and if you earn more than your monthly goal, that’s fantastic!
The longer you are gainfully employed, the less relevant your felony record will be the next time you look for high-income companies that hire felons. What seems like an insurmountable barrier when you are fresh out of prison will not be so difficult to overcome once you have a few years of work history.
