Keep an eye on the want ads
I’ve written a great deal on how to save or not spend money. What I haven’t done enough of is written on how to make more money.
You might be envious of friends who make more money and have better benefits but you feel stuck in your job. That’s normal. But there’s nothing to say you too can’t look for another job. It’s how the labour market works. The economy seems to be improving and so might your opportunity for more fruitful employment. Changing jobs can be a daunting proposition but you can look for a new job anytime you want. Whether it’s Linked In or the local job ads, it’s okay to look. Chances are, if you’re in debt, you’re not making enough money. But each of us has a skill set that’s worth exploring with a new employer. So go ahead. Keep looking. Put yourself out there. You’ve got nothing to lose by looking. And I should do the same. I’m a small business owner but there’s nothing stopping me from looking for something else or something better. I know it’s a cliche but you have to be the change you wish to become and if that means a change in jobs, then open yourself up to the opportunity. You never know what will come your way and the mere prospect is, if nothing else, exciting to think about.
