Entrepreneurial Spirit

I come from a family of the self-employed.  My dad, my mom, my grandfather (kind of, he was an insurance man, so his success was based on what he sold), my other grandfather, my grandmother (yeah, she was a business woman before being a business woman was cool), and my great grandfather started a bank with his 8th grade education.  So yes, a very long line of them.

I think that's one reason I've always had a job, always been interested in money.  I could count money from the time I was very little.  My mom gave me coins to count to keep me occupied.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not a "lover of money", but I've always been interested in it and how to earn it.

So in my mind, I'm always thinking, looking, identifying opportunities.  My dream life is having about 10 part time jobs.  Here are my latest ideas/ventures.

#1 - I've joined a company called ACN.  It's a direct seller of telecommunications.  I was really intrigued by the business model.  You earn essentially a commission on everyone you sign up for different communication products, cell phone service, satellite TV, internet, etc and energy in some states.  And, my favorite part, you continue earning that commission the entire time that person is a paying customer.  Pretty cool, huh?  If you want to check out what kids of deals are going on, check out my website, it might could save you some money .  It's all the names you've heard of Dish Network, Direct TV, Verizon, Sprint, etc, just maybe a deal that's not available somewhere else.  Or if you are interested in learning more about the business, let me know, I'll be glad tell you more about it.

#2 - Yesterday, Danielle, had a post about her spray tan machine.  If you have read my blog for any amount of time, you know I'm obsessed with the spray tan, but it's really expensive!  I'm strongly considering purchasing one so that I can get one any time I want!  Then I could spray friends and family and earn enough to make my spray tans free.  I'm still thinking.

#3 - Our kettlebell instructor left town, so sad.  I hope she's incredibly happy in her new endeavors, but I'm missing the kettlebell class.  Right about the time it ended, I was starting to see results.  Before she left, I asked her about how she got certified.  She told me.  It's something I could do, I'm just not sure if I could make my money back or where I would have the class, and the actual kettlebells themselves are pretty expensive.

Anyway, those are the things on my mind this week... phones, tans, and kettlebells.

What is your dream job?  Do you think up random ways to earn money?  Do you earn money in a random way?

Whenever I think of spray tans, I always think of that Friend's episode. A spray tanning side job would probably be fun! Good luck with your new endeavor!
