We are constantly trying to think of new ways that we can earn more money, because as much as we may not want to admit it, it’s what the world revolves around. If you want to live a life without ever having to worry about being able to afford things, or feeling guilting because you know you don’t have that kind of money to spend freely, then you’re just going to have to make a darn good income that provides you with that financial freedom that everyone strives for. Yes, it’s easier said than done, because if it were that simple then everyone would already be a millionaire and the whole dynamics of the world would change.

There are many different ventures that you can go down that have the possibility of making you money, but before you get to that stage, it starts very young. Working hard in school and getting the good grades will definitely make life a little easier for you once you reach a certain age. Having said that, if you didn’t do too well in school, you shouldn’t let that hold you back either because it isn’t all about what grades you have, but it does help boost you a little further.

A lot of it comes down to the type of person you are. If you have goals and ambition and dreams, as well as being a hard worker with drive and discipline, then you’re already halfway there. Let’s face it, you could have all the best credentials you could wish for, but if you lack passion and determination you will find yourself stuck in front of many obstacles that you aren’t equipped to tackle.

When looking for a job, a lot of people will find it rather appealing to the idea of working from home. They assume that it will be easy as you can just sit back on your sofa with your feet up, a cup of coffee in hand, and the work will just come to you. But this isn’t how it works at all. If anything, working from home is even harder than working in an office with other individuals because you don’t have that stimulation of targets being forced into you because you’re alone at home, and so you have to try and do that all by yourself, but there are so many other distractions around you like the tv and the food, that it can be very hard to keep work as your only focus. This is why it isn’t for everyone, and you have to be a certain type of person to manage these conditions. Self-motivation is the absolute key, and if you haven’t got that, then remote work just isn’t going to be for you.

Now you know what it requires, you can think about the different options of work you have.

Here are just a few to give you some ideas.

Become a blogger

Starting up as a blogger is pretty easy, the hard part is getting an audience and making money. It’s even harder nowadays because there are already so many bloggers out there that are doing really well, so it’s more of a challenge to find a gap that you can fill. You can talk about anything you wish, but the more areas you cover, the more opportunities you make for yourself to create a decent income. There are many ways, both big and small. You can earn a few extra bucks here and there by allowing adverts to be shown on your site. The better money is by offering your writing services to promote brands and companies that are out there. So for example, if you were writing about the hottest new fashions trends and have a very influential say with a big following behind you, then a clothing brand may contact you and ask you to mention them, essentially sending people their way.

Become a trader

Trading is essentially a buying and selling process of finances such as stocks and bonds. You can do as much or as little as you wish, and the outcome will always vary, this is why if you’re just starting out, it may not be the best thing to rely on as sometimes you may lose a lot and not make any money for a while, but once you get the hang of it, you could really create yourself an income that gives you a lot of freedom. You will need to do as much research as you can before you start to dabble in this industry, as it can be a very confusing place to begin with. There are many sites and companies out there like emini futures that will give you some great tips and advice that will increase your chances of success quicker. Absorb in as much information as you can like a sponge, and the benefits will soon pay off, both figuratively and metaphorically.

Become a seller   

With sites like eBay and Amazon, as well as all the different platforms on social media, it has never been easier to sell things, be it your clothes, your electronics, or even things that you have created, like art or furniture. If you’re a creative one of sorts and love to make beauty out of your craft, then why not make money from your talent and skill? It can be a little scary at first because you’re putting yourself out there, but you may be surprised at how people react to what you do. It will be slow in the beginning, but you can use the likes of social media to accumulate a following. The more people that begin watching what you do and appreciating it – the more chance you have of making sales. It’s like climbing up a ladder, and the higher you go, the more opportunities you’re going to have because people are really listening and watching you thrive.

Now you have a few ideas, get thinking about what skills you have and what you are able to offer.

Mathematical Career Choices For Beautiful Minds

Even if you aren’t quite at the level of John Forbes Nash Jr. if maths, numbers, and equations are your thing, it’s likely to have a bright career future ahead of you. In fact, there are some seriously exciting and challenges options to consider. Keep reading to find out what they are and whether they are a good fit for you.


Physics is a branch of science that many refer to as the purest form because it deals with how things in our universe behave. It covers significant things like how the planets move, all the way down to the smallest elements of matter such as quarks and how these respond to the rules that govern them. Something that makes it not only essential that you have a burning curiosity to discover how things work but also an excellent grasp of maths and numbers.  

Like Leonard from the Big Bang Theory, physicists can be theoretical, meaning that they work mainly with unproven ideas, or they can be practical. This means that they work will already establish concepts and put these to use for the benefit of humanity.

Regarding careers, physicists can be employed in the private research and development sectors. However, they tend to have a had a long and esteemed academic career behind them before this happens. Something that means to start along this route a bachelor’s degree following by a master or Ph.D. is the right path to tread.

Stock Trader

A hugely different career role, but still one that is popular with mathematical geniuses is working in the financial sector trading stocks and instruments.

It is a high-stress role, as the buck ultimately stops with you if your investors’ money is lost. Transactions need to be made very fast as well, which means traders must be laser focused and decisive to get ahead. Although there are now apps such as the one CMC Markets offers that do make trading a lot similar and accessible. Something that also means traders no longer have to be tied to their computers or landlines to get the best deals.  


Last of all, if maths floats your boat why not consider a career in accountancy? Employment prospects tend to be good in this sector because as long as there are people with commercial businesses and private finances, there will be a call for someone to help them understand how to account for and manage their money better.

Choosing accountancy as a job can also be a smart idea because there are so many areas in which you can specialize. For example, accounts specializing in tax and submitting tax returns can nearly always get work. This tends to be because everyday folks don’t want to have to deal with the confusing minutia of doing it themselves or task the risk that they could get something wrong and end up being audited either. Something that makes accounting a fine choice for those that want to put their beautiful mind to good use.
