July 30, 2019 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Depending on that monthly paycheck as your sole source of income isn’t just scary, it’s not realistic nowadays. Whether you need to earn more money or want to monetize on your passion project, find out if you’re ready to put up your first of many small businesses! It’s payday! What do you do with the money that you withdraw from thebank? I get enough to pay my monthly bills, then I put in the rest in a time deposit account. I don’t want the money to simply slip through my fingers. I pay my bills, set aside money to save for my next vacation, and treat myself to a good meal. It goes to my bills, then I head straight to the mall to get those shoes that I’ve been eyeing for weeks. How is a typical day like for you? I wake up, go to the office, have a nightcap with friends or officemates, head home, and repeat. I wake up, go to the office, sneak in a workout, or relax at home. I wake up, go to the office, and then head straight home to enjoy some free time. How do you feel about your current monthly salary? I get enough to cover all my expenses, and I have a bit of money left over for savings. I get more than enough to cover all expenses—I only spend around 20% of my monthly salary, everything else goes to savings. I feel underpaid. It’s hard to stretch my paycheck out for two whole weeks—petsa de peligro is real! Is your current job something you enjoy doing? Yes! I look forward to heading to work every day! Though I want to put in the extra hours, I need my sleep and downtime. Yes, but I wish I had more time to do other things, like hobbies or vacations. Not really—it’s something that pays the bills and keeps me busy. I’m always on the lookout for better job opportunities. During weekends, you: Head to the mall, of course. What else should I do but to go malling? Spend time on other activities, like taking quick road trips or catching up on my reading. Either sleep in or meet with friends for a few hours—I don’t pack my schedule in too much. How much free time do you have every day? An hour or two, but I spend it with friends or family. None. My work and my daily commute eats up all my work. I only have my weekends. About three hours, even more during the weekend. I try not to overschedule myself. If you were to put up your own small business, what kind of business would it be? I haven’t thought about what small business I want to put up. My days are so busy as they are, and I don’t think I have what it takes to be an entrepreneur. Something more creative compared to what my job is—maybe an online business. Something along the same line as my current career, except I’ll strike it out on my own—I have a business plan mapped out in my mind already.
