Time is Money, as the saying goes, and in these uncertain economic times, more and more people are trying to figure out clever ways to supplement their income. Whether considering a second job, starting their own business, or reselling items on ebay, clients often seek my counsel on how to balance their schedule while tackling additional ventures.
The trap for most people is that far too many “get rich quick plans” come with a crushing time burden that is hard to see in advance. The result is what I call Time Quicksand; where hundreds of hours (and often thousands of dollars) are consumed, with barely a nickel to show for it, before abandoning the project. You can avoid that mistake by filtering every idea through a strict time lens; seeking activities that take minimal effort for maximum rewards.
