Money makes the world go round, amirite? It’s not the be all and end all, but it certainly helps! So how do you become a badass at making money? The kind of girl with so many streams of income that you can afford to treat yourself like the queen you are? As Sophia Amoruso once wisely said, money looks better in the bank than it does on your feet so start cultivating those amazing habits that will make sure you have a badass bank balance.

1. Be your own bank manager

How much money do you have coming in and out right now? Do you pay subscriptions? I’m guilty of spending too much money on tv services, workouts, Adobe subscriptions and more. And while it’s nice to treat yourself, they all add up. Sit yourself down at a desk and go over your statements, not matter how painful it is. The first step is to be realistic, what do you not need right now? Cancel some subscriptions, use a daily budget app and keep extra money in your bank.

The biggest pitfall is the fact that if you have money, you will spend it. It’s a mindset we’re all guilty of, so it’s time to snap out of it. I always find that putting money to live on into another bank stops me from spending it.

2. Ka-ching baby!

It’s all about multiple income streams. You’ve probably heard the phrase being slung around over and over now, which is all well and good, but how you create those streams is where the real money is. If you want to make money from blogging you’ll find so many money making strategies right here.

First, think about your passion (and make sure it’s a talent). Are you great at writing? Painting? Can you make awesome knitted animals? Now think about how to turn that passion into a paycheck. It can happen. You can even start a simple Etsy store with low stock and start selling what you’re good at. I read a book about famous writers the other day and found something really interesting in it, Natalie Goldberg shared a story about how she used to sell poems at a market. She’d write them on the spot for customers. Anything is possible!

3. Never stop learning 

The world is a fickle place, so it’s important to stay up-to-date with every trend that rises and falls, you never know – the next big trend could be something you’ve been sitting on for a while. But also, in order to be a badass at making money, you need to constantly keep learning. Invest in a course to keep your skills up to date, you never know when you could use the skills you have.

4. Grab that promotion 

You can always put yourself in prime position for a promotion if you want a salary boost. Have an honest conversation with your manager, letting them know you’re willing to do what it takes to succeed. Be mindful in your performance reviews, ask questions, figure out what kind of help your company needs and provide it. The more you become a go-getter, the easier that promotion ladder will be to climb! If you need extra help, we’ve got so many helpful tips on grabbing your promotion no matter what kind of job you have!

So where’s it gonna go from here? Are you gonna become a badass at making money?
