Have you ever cleaned your own house? You know, like vacuuming the carpets, dusting end tables and mantels, and swiffering the hardwood floors? If so, then you are qualified to clean the houses of others.
The Rising Need for Cleaning
Have you noticed the latest trends in America today? Specifically, the percentage of women in the workforce? For the past few decades, more and more women have been hanging up their aprons and have taken their skills into the workforce. Not only that, but the average couple has inflated their lifestyle because of the additional income, which then gets them trapped into working longer and harder days to keep up with the bills.
So when is there time to clean? There really isn’t. And since the average couple now has a beefier income, they are willing to pay out some additional money to get their homes back into shape.

Are you looking for a great way to make a grand per month with a side-gig? Well I think I have the perfect solution for you: detailing cars. By this I mean, washing the outside of the car, waxing it, vacuuming the inside, and shining up the dash with a wet wipe (and perhaps even cleaning up the vents with a Q-tip).
My nephew is a few semesters into his college life and is quickly realizing how expensive it really is! His class load is constant, but his bank account is depleting. He would love to graduate from college without any debt (as I have taught him), but with a couple of $10 an hour jobs, he just doesn’t see where it is going to pay off. So I got to brainstorming – what can a 19 year old kid do that will make him some decent money and allow

Have you ever driven past houses and thought, “Sheesh, when are they going to paint that house? It looks terrible!” Yes, it may look terrible, but many people avoid painting their house because it is just so expensive!In fact, I have avoided painting my house for 3 years because of the quotes I have received from various painting companies. To do the exterior of my house as well as my garage, I have been quoted over $4,000 from one of the cheapest bidders.
Up until this year, I just assumed that I had to get an outside company to paint my house, but you know what? Painting the exterior of a house is not all that difficult. You just need to power wash the dirt off, wait for it to dry, and then set up a really long ladder (for my house at least – it’s a 2 story) and

Do you have a budget for yourself to follow each month? If not, do you know how much you spend on food, car insurance, your home insurance, your phone, cable, or gasoline? My guess is that most of us could not quote the exact expense of each of these categories every month. You might write this off and just say, “Well nobody does!” This is simply not true, and by ignoring your re-occurring expenses you may be ignoring potential savings for this month, and for the entire year.
First, Make Your Budget
In order to get an accurate assessment of what your expenses are each month, you first need to take a guess at it – meaning, start a budget and write it down on paper. Throughout the month, you will basically find out how wrong you are, which is absolutely fine. Making mistakes is the best way to learn!

I have been watching my pennies all year and have a plan to pay off my mortgage by the end of 2014. “Why on earth would you do something so crazy?”, many people ask. Well, I really don’t like debt and it sends chills up my spine just thinking about having a mortgage and business debt as well. I would much rather get rid of my large debt before I take on another one, even though it is technically for investment purposes.
My Plan for 2014 and Beyond
The plan is pretty basic to start out. I want to figure out how cheaply I can live in order to get rid of my mortgage debt by the end of December. All the while, I will be looking at investment properties for the 2015 season.
My friend Mike just shakes his head at my crazy ideas and doesn’t understand why anyone
