Oola for Women - Day 2 - 21 Day Challenge

Today's #OolaforWomen Challenge was all about the second F of Oola which is Finance.

We were today challenged to learn something new about money. Well, this is a big one in our family right now. And I am not interested in the lame advice you read over and over again - eat in, don't drink coffee out, keep a budget, etc.... sorry all but that advice is old and doesn't work any longer - with the price of food these days - it is pretty comparable. An Amy's vegan meal at the grocery store is the same price as a vegan Chipotle burrito bowl and a bag of bagels at Albertsons comes out to the same cost as buying my bagel at Starbucks (plus they'll even toast it for me if I want). And a budget - I can have a budget, a spreadsheet, a Quickbooks program... .but when you are self employed and income fluctuates, unexpected stuff shows up all the time, you need more than someone saying to you "keep a budget"....

So.... I wanted outside of the box ideas today! And here is what I found:
50 Ways to Make Money: Maximizing, Creating, and Increasing Your Income -
Another website even offers 80 ways:
And here are some awesome free trainings around mindset:

Yeah! Let's do this - in gratitude!
