Extra income and low-budget vacationing: recession an opportunity

With current economic crunch and job instability it is more difficult than ever to afford the extras like a vacation.

With current economic crunch and job instability it is more difficult than ever to afford the extras like a vacation.

If you are uncertain of your future income, you feel insecure.

What steps can you take to ensure security?

Recessions are not just negative, they offer lots of opportunity.

Have you checked out the endless possibilities of a home-based business?

This type of business offers lower risk as your start up costs are very minimal versus a store front business.

You can build your business without any income limits, no boss (ever heard of the term, “your job is only as secure as your boss’ emotion?”).

If you are in control of the amount of hours you work and therefore the amount of income you are able to earn, then your possibilities are endless!

I started my home-based business over 18 years ago and have enjoyed the freedom to pick my own hours, limitless income potential, passive income and no boss.

Vacations are easy because I can leave whenever I want and my online business earns income even if I am another part of the world.

I encourage you to check out a home-based business for some job security.

Many employees have had their hours reduced or been laid off due to lack of work, so with the extra time you may have on your hands, check out the many on-line home-based business opportunities.

You can build up a passive income with part-time hours, and best of all no one controls whether you have a job or how much you earn.

If you are struggling to get by and still want to take your family on a vacation, how about some cheaper alternatives?

Camping in the mountains offers some great spots with the wonderful beauty of nature at your doorstep — surely this will relax your tired soul.

Nordegg area offers many rustic sites that often don’t require reservations. For gas, and campsites for two to three nights this mini vacation would cost you under $100.

Stop by your local Chamber of Commerce office for a Provincial camping guide.

Pack all your own food and snacks and avoid eating out along the way.

Day trips offer great mini vacation escapes.

Take the family cycling on the Red Deer river trails or float on an inner tube down the river.

Pack a picnic for your rest stop. Calaway Park or Calgary Zoo offer great 2 for 1 and discount coupons online.

Great fun and relatively inexpensive outings for week-ends when the kids go back to school, but the weather is still nice.

Create your own job security with a self employed part-time business, but don’t quit your day job!

If you are passionate about creating unlimited income and making a difference, you will find a way to manage your time to accommodate a business on the side.

Your family future vacations, peace of mind about your income and freedom to be in control of your future may prove to be very motivating!
