My Secret To Making a Fulltime Living On Fiverr

I accidentally became a seller on Fiverr.com but I hope your journey is far more deliberate. After ten years in personal and corporate banking as a fee-only financial planner (one of the good guys) I discovered my passion for online marketing.

Was a large salary truly everything I should be working toward? Was my time more valuable than money? … [Read more...]

One of the realities of your personal economic situation as a woman is that you are likely to earn less money over your lifetime than your male counterparts.

Studies and reports on the overall financial health for women show, time and again, that women are vulnerable when it comes to money. Whether it’s because they work in jobs that pay less or  take time out from the workforce to raise children or for some other reason, women are likely to face huge challenges later in life.
