Ramit Sethi’s Solution to the Post-Christmas Blues: Earn More Money

The title of Ramit Sethi‘s latest post couldn’t be more timely for me. It’s simply called “Earn More Money in 2010.

My week started out in a panic when I faced the doom of my credit card balances on Monday. Things got out of hand over the holidays, and, as a Catholic girl who was raised to believe that debt is worse than the devil, I was definitely bound for confession.

If you have the “Post-Christmas Credit Card Blues,” I highly recommend that you follow Ramit’s blog this month. Ramit is doing a whole month of helping you earn more money, overcome psychological barriers, get clients and get paid for what you love to do. Ramit says it best, “there’s a limit to how much you can save, but no limit to how much you can earn.”

I’d love to hear what YOU think about the idea of earning more instead of spending less:

What are you going to do to pay your debt down this year? Continue complaining, making excuses and sitting on the couch every night after work?

Do you believe you can make money doing what you love without quitting your day job?

Are you focusing on cutting lattes out of your week, when you should be focusing on much bigger things?

Do you freelance or work part-time now? What do you do and how has it helped your financial situation, confidence and/or entrepreneurial spirit?

Does your mind tend to go to “cut cost” mode rather than “earn more” mode when in a financial rut?
