What can I do on the weekends to better prepare me for the future?

I am trying to find a job. Any job. But my best option seems like a live in nanny position. Which would most likely leave me free on weekends. So what can I do on the weekends or maybe even during the week if from home that will prepare me for after this job. Hopefully it would be long term. But you never really know.

  • Believe it or not, READ...Jim Rohn is a great author to start with. He is easy, humorous, and to the point. He also has CD's and they aren't expensive. Jack Canfield is another author that is really good. They even give tips on finding jobs.

  • Have you thought of a Home based business? I have one with a 39 year old company, whose stock is rising like crazy and about to hit the national news, which means we will face an explosion.

    Its called Prepaid Legal Services. I work about 20 hours a week, and its completely on my schedule. I make a FT income from home and until the midday end of the month tomorrow (9/30) Im offering up assistance in getting started.

  • Plan a budget and set aside funds. Do not live up to and above your means. Always live below. And learn to save. This is very important for your children to learn too.

  • I agree with the other posters that said starting your own business is a good idea. With Mary Kay, I earn 50% on everything I sell and get to hang out with the girls and have fun, spend time with my family, work whichever hours I want, and earn money while doing it! Get in touch with me if you're interested in learning more!!
