They say that money can’t buy you happiness. What they don’t tell you is that money can buy you the yacht that gets you happiness-adjacent. All kidding aside, we should all count our blessings, but we also need to recognize that money is a necessary component to living in the industrialized world.

With that in mind, let’s check out what the blogosphere has to offer on the subject.

Every Day I’m Hustlin’

Minna Van from The Network Hub is currently traveling through Asia, visiting with family and doing the tourist thing. While there, she has witnessed the many faces of entrepreneurship. Regardless of gender or age, it seems that everyone is out to make a buck… even a ten-year-old girl!

Not Exactly Location-Free

It seems that Bob Buskirk has found himself in a rather unfavorable position. Thanks to the crazy weather, he has been snowed in. This would prevent regular employees from getting to their jobs, but not Bob. As an Internet entrepreneur, he can work from just about anywhere. Being snowed in, I guess he’ll be working more from home this week than from Panera Bread!

Everyone Has a Story

In a recent post on Blogging Tips, Ben Spark addresses one of the most common hurdles that people encounter when they express interest in blogging. This is true of both casual bloggers and folks who want to get into it professionally. They think they have nothing to say. We are all special in our own unique little ways, so we all have a story to share! You just have to find your story.

If It’s a Real Job, Then…

Problogger has a guest post from Mike CJ this week that defines a very common phrase heard by many Internet hopefuls: Treat your blog like a business. If you want to make a living from your blog, you have to stop treating it like a hobby and run it the same way you’d run a real company. Are you setting budgets, producing reports, and investing in the future?

You Got a Tax Refund

It’s tax season again. Free Money Finance echoes a sentiment from many of my colleagues but it’s one not so understood by the masses. Getting an income tax refund isn’t really a good thing, because it means that you’ve given the government an interest-free loan. In the United States, this results in $302 billion in free money for Washington each year.
