On it’s own, a single small gig won’t give you the stability financially that you need and deserve. It’s a shame how many people struggle financially, it really ought not be that way. I have always viewed money as a tool, not something we should become Mastered by.
The question then, is how to gain stability & freedom, one way is be creative, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Try out a multitude of different things, it’s wise to always have a plan B to your plan B, as the saying goes.
Lately, I have been trying out a series of receipt apps, on their own (individually) I know they won’t necessarily amount to much, but since I am trying several in tandem with each other, the collective is bound to add up. I still don’t expect to literally make a fortune w/them alone, but they will supplement my other endeavors at least.
