Living Without a Salary

How to reduce your expenses, so you can live without a salary!

Casual Income Series December 2, 2008

Living without a salary doesn’t mean that you live without money. After all, it still is valued in this society, and bills, regardless of how reduced they are, require you to use money to pay them. You need some income coming in…but the focus of this blog is to get you away from having to slave away at a job you hate, and to help you become independent in the truest sense of the word. Free from the slavery of a job…free from having to answer to anyone but yourself…free to LIVE your life the way you want to. After all, you are an adult (I assume) and you have the right to choose your own path in life. Getting to that point may not be easy, but you will get there if that is what you want.

The term, “Casual Income” was coined by the author Charles Long, in the book, “How to Live Without a Salary”, and it means just what it sounds like–earning income on a casual basis. No need to get dressed up in a suit and tie, or a dress if you like those better, if you don’t want to. No need to spend hours and hours doing what you hate, so you get a few minutes here and there to do something you really love. In this series of posts (to be completed over the course of the next few weeks), we are going to look at thinking outside the box in terms of how you can make money doing what you enjoy. The point of casual income is to do what you love, and then find a way to make money from it. You may love doing a lot of things…great! Make money from it all! No one really said you had to specialize in just one area…did they?

So stay tuned to see how easy it really can be to earn a casual income. Who knows? You may find a great home business idea out of it! That is, if you want a home business anyway…
