I may be crazy...

March 30th, 2006 at 03:55 pm

I may be crazy, but I'm trying to develop an "information product" (ebook) to make some extra money to pay off debt. I've been working on it for a couple weeks. Actually, I haven't actually begun writing it -- I've been too busy making a couple related websites and writing/distributing free articles & reports to build up a list of people to market this ebook to. I'll let you all know my progress.

It has eaten a bit into my savings, however -- to the tune of about $400. I am a bit ashamed of this (which is what kept me from posting for a couple weeks) because I had previously determined that I wouldn't try to start up any side business until I was out of debt.

A friend of mine challenged me not to limit myself from developing some side income which could pay off some debt. The wisdom of this advice is yet to be determined. I am having a load of fun, however!

    If it will help you pay off your debts I think you should do it.

    smart friend. paying off your debt is a goal, why not do it faster?

    It is just that it is hard to justify spending $400 when we're in debt on the HOPE that the $400 will multiply. I'm OK doing it, it just somehow "feels" wrong.

    I did the same thing with the $20.00 challenge here. Paying out money in the hopes it will begin to make money. I know the feeling.........just odd somehow! Especially when I keep reading here of the positive growth in others' challenge funds. Mind is growing, just the other direction still!

    The higher the risk the greater the reward!

    You are paying the 400$ to develop yourself, not to line the pocket of Citibank. And you are going to learn something about yourself, right? That's an honorable, frugal use of time.

    I had similar thoughts when I started paying for a personal trainer. Its only a waste if you get nothing (including knowledge) out of it.
