Happy Tuesday all! I gave our usual Tuesday writer, Cat the day off to share some exciting news with you. Just as an aside, this day off couldn’t come at a better time as Cat had the babies on Sunday – she and the bambinos are doing well! 🙂
You may remember back in January I shared some of my goals for this year. They included personal goals like getting in better shape as well as different ways we plan on growing our business and Frugal Rules this year.
Well, one of the goals I was sort of keeping to myself was the launching of a new site, along with my good friend Grayson of Debt Roundup – Sprout Wealth. After several months of work and brainstorming that goal is now a reality as we officially launched Sprout Wealth yesterday!
If you’re a regular reader of Frugal Rules, then you’re likely well aware of Grayson as he is a staff writer for me here on Wednesdays. Over the past year, we’ve come to see that we have many similar goals in terms of online work and that is basically what brought Sprout Wealth to be.
What Is Sprout Wealth About?
At first glance, the name Sprout Wealth might seem a bit odd, but it’s quite simple really. Our goal is to help readers find ways that they can increase their wealth, grow their income, or expand their assets with talents and skills they already have.
It can be easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the only way you can increase your net worth, or simply make money, is through a paycheck. While that does play an integral role, it only scratches the surface. If you’re reading this post, then I’m quite confident that you have skills or talents that can be monetized. Below is just a sampling of the ways you can do so:
- Freelance writing
- Dog walking
- Mystery shopping
- Selling things on Ebay
If you take a look at the list, you’ll see that the possibilities range from the mundane to more advanced. The point is, there are many ways to earn extra income – you just need to look for it and be willing to put in the time and effort to do so. Speaking from personal experience, I was able to harness extra income to help me pay off debt faster and I know it did for Grayson as well. We use it today to fund different things included in our budget and accomplish some of the financial goals we have. That is also not to mention the fact that it was a side gig that my beautiful wife started nearly five years ago has turned into our business – so you never know where the journey of earning extra income will take you. 🙂
Beyond that, our goal with Sprout Wealth is to teach readers how to use different tools available to them to make them money. This will include things such as investing to things like credit cards. Yes, I said credit cards, because even they can be a tool, if used wisely, that can be used to make you money.
Anyway, there you have it. Now for my shameless plug and asking you to check out our new site – Sprout Wealth. If you like, you can also follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook. We have a few posts up on the site now and will be busy loading it with more content, posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the beginning and likely expanding from there.
