At this moment, my dad is retired and my mom will be retiring in the next 20 days. They have some money stashed away in their retirement account, but if they happen to live for another 20 years, their money will almost certainly be long gone.
Since I live and breathe finance, my dad started asking me questions about what they should do with the money that they do have. “Will the stock market crash soon? Should I put my investments in something other than stocks and bonds?

Making a grand per month is likely your minimum target goal when you start a side gig, but what if you can’t make that much money? This is especially likely when you are just starting your side gig. After all, it takes awhile to increase your business and income.

Whether people move to be closer to family or for a job, many Americans are stressed because they’re paying for two homes–one in the new location and one in the old location.
If your previous home is in a desirable location such as in a big city or by a lake, take a deep breath and relax. You may be able to take your home and turn it into a vacation rental by owner.

Have you ever thought about driving a semi-truck for a living? If this occupation excites you, but you can’t make it work as a regular daytime job, then perhaps you should consider it as a second job on the weekends.
When I was 19 years old, my friends and I were trying to earn enough money to put ourselves through college. We weren’t brilliant enough to receive free rides, but we did have a strong work ethic. In fact, one of my friends was working full-time, taking classes, and was driving a truck on the weekends. With all of these jobs, he was certainly tired at the end of each week, but he was able to pay for his classes without taking on any debts.
