Fellow personal finance writer Kimberly Palmer took the reins for Money Girl episode 218 and wrote a great post called “How to Find a Second Source of Income” where she offers some great ideas and tips to get you thinking about how to create a multi-streamed income.. Kimberly is the author of Generation Earn: The Young Professional’s Guide to Spending, Investing, and Giving Back.
Kimberly mentions that getting started with a project might turn into a full-time job in itself or it could just be a back-up plan while you continue to work a day job. I couldn’t agree more, because that’s how I became a full-time writer! Starting a podcast eventually led to me going pro, signing a book deal, and branching into coaching and speaking. I truly believe that when you follow your deepest interests that’s where you’ll end up finding your greatest opportunities.
