Hi, this is Gladice Ming.
Growing up, I was taught by my parents that I should study hard, get good grades and land a well paid job.
And that is exactly what I did for most part of my life.
For many years, I worked in the financial industry. Then a few years ago, both my husband and I lost our job unexpectedly because the company both of us worked for suddenly closed down.
That was a big wake-up call for us.
We realized the importance of having diverse streams of income and not just relying on our jobs as the sole source of income.
That was when we started to research more about how to start a business on the side.
Our first-ever side business was Service Arbitrage. This side business soon started to give us around $1,000 per month, and growing.
It was not a lot, but it helped our situation back then.
While we were working on this side business, both of us were looking for a job as well.
Soon, my husband got a job offer.
But, I decided that he should continue to work on business full-time instead.
Because we would NEVER be able to build the life we want if both of us work at full time jobs.
So, I told him that I would get a job and do the side business while he focused on building his business full-time.
This is because only with business, you have the ability to give yourself pay raise every month. (All you have to do is to work hard to grow the businesses and make more money.)
But with a job, you can’t do that.
I am glad that all our hard work paid off.
Within 8 months, we had our first breakthrough.
Fast forward to today, we now both work from home, so we can spend more time with our son.
Looking back, it was the best decision ever to create new income streams.
Now, I’m still constantly exploring new income streams.
Because it never hurts to diversify our income sources and grow our income.
It’s my hope that by sharing my journey with you on this website, you too can benefit from the lessons I have learnt along the way.
