SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CAREERS - MAKING IT WORK - New Career? Joyce Schwarz: another Los Angeles Times interview

Another one -- this one I believe was from the careers and want ad section of the LA TIMES -- want ads-- email me and I'll explain what those were or what they are (if they still exist by the time you are reading this story! joyceschwarz(at)


September 12, 1994
Switching from a career as a computer systems designer to a financial planner may seem like a huge jump. And it would be if it were taken all at once.
Some recareerers know exactly what field they want to move into--they may have had a dream gnawing at them for years. But many, especially those pressured into making a move, need to delve into their job histories--all the way back to those lemonade stands--to get a fix on the things they are not only good at, but actually love doing.

"It's essential to have an open mind and get out of the (career) box they're in," says Kate Pope, director of counseling for Women at Work, a job and career resource center in Pasadena.

Janice Plessner, 31, of Irvine learned the value of identifying her passion. After several years working for her father's fund-raising company, she knew she wasn't being fulfilled. She sought help from a career counselor at Cal State Fullerton, who told her: "Don't think of a job. Think of what you love."

Your antenna should be up to gather information," she says. "Go with specific questions as if you were an outside consultant trying to get a fix on issues in the industry."

When you can start posing sophisticated questions, begin interviewing experts in the field. People who are active in professional groups are especially inclined to be helpful, but don't aim for those at the senior-most rung yet, because you're still testing your wings.

As you talk to more people, position yourself as someone bringing talents from your old career into the new area, says Joyce A. Schwarz, author of "Successful ReCareering" and a counselor in Los Angeles who helps professionals through career transitions.

What qualities do you bring from your old position that will make you stand out in the new one? Did you develop great writing skills, problem-solving skills, a feeling for a certain market that would be greatly valued in this new field? You don't want it to seem like you're starting from scratch.

"You're not starting over, you're starting better," Schwarz says

Shifting gears: SUCCESSFUL RECAREERING with Joyce Schwarz

Another oldie but goodie found at -- so I'm giving it to you here, ENJOY!

If you've felt stalled in your career lately, you're not alone You're Not Alone may refer to:

"You're Not Alone" (Chicago song)

"You're Not Alone" (Embrace song)

"You're Not Alone" (Olive song)

"You're Not Alone" (Shaye song)

. Many workers, faced with layoffs, changing technologies or corporate reengineering have determined they're no longer suited for their chosen profession. Either by choice or design, they've opted to switch careers. Such a decision can't be made in haste Adv. 1. in haste - in a hurried or hasty manner; "the way they buried him so hurriedly was disgraceful"; "hastily, he scanned the headlines"; "sold in haste and at a sacrifice"

hastily, hurriedly , however. Should you decide to leap, you'll want to be sure to look - and reach out - first.

Having a secure network in place to provide guidance, moral support and career linkages can help take some of the uncertainty out of your search, while safeguarding you against failure. Joyce. A. Schwarz, a Hollywood-based career packager and author of Successful Recareering (Career Press, Hawthorne, N.J., $12.95), suggests that you establish your own "board of advisers" who can do this for you.

These advisers can be culled from all walks of life and should include people who know you, as well as individuals you'd like to know better. "Aside from advising you, they can also do some matchmaking Matchmaking
Levi, Dolly style that might eventually result in your getting your dream job," says Schwarz.


Great news, back issues of the LA TIMES seem to have gone online in the past few months -- or maybe it's is finding them better than google or other search engines. I have not seen these stories online before. Thank Heavens, THE LA TIMES digital links makes it so that I don't have to scan the old paper articles into the blogs.

More than 500 million people in 175 countries will observe Earth Day by going green and following new eco-guidelines.

But what if you could go green every day of your life and really save the earth! As a career strategist who also works as a high tech consultant launching new products and services and has a background in marketing and advertising, it's been my pleasure to work with many eco-friendly companies and organizations.


What are the top environmental careers? You may not even have to go back to school to help combat climate changes. Here are three careers that you may not have thought of before:

1) Environmental Engineer: If you're already an engineer in another field -- say an automotive engineer or an aeronautical engineer or maybe you do engineering for a high tech corporation, you may be able to get your company to agree to name you their 'green guru' so that you can set up guidelines for sustainability for your firm and you can use your scientific and techno background to determine if production or services are eco-friendly. Who knows you may be able to get your firm to start a new windmill farm to produce all the energy you need for the next decade. If you want to get into the field you'll need at least a two year degree. Plus you'll want to read up on eco-opportunities and even take a seminar or workshop on how to 'go green'.

2) Park Ranger: Yes, there are still plenty of opportunities in this field. The Park Service always needs veterans in the areas of geology, architecture, design and hospitality to delve into the next era of what's called eco-tourism. Innovative park rangers work with communities to develop environmental impact studies and next-gen eco-education for people of all ages. Can you imagine how rewarding it might be to set up the first Butterfly sanctuary in your state? You'll need a high school education and check with your local Park service for other requirements.

3) Eco-Tour Leader: Are you already an eco-expert? Did you go green years ago? If so you may be able to become an eco-tour leader both in your community and across the country and around the world. Eco-tourism is one of the most exciting opportunities for vacations and touring. You may be able to tie in with your local travel agent and offer eco-weekend retreats if you still want to keep your day job. Or if you're yearning to explore new lands, check with some of the major tour companies to see if they need an eco-expert who wants to add a 'green' side to their tours. Who knows next year at this time, you may be leading an eco-tour into the Amazon Rain Forest, helping to provide needed income for local inhabitants while minimizing tourist footprints with eco-friendly vacations that help don't hinder the environment!

Eco-careers are just one of the paths you can take in the new area of the new responsible workplace where sustainability and social entrepreneurism highlight the path to success.

Joyce Schwarz has served as a keynote speaker for the American Assn of Caves & Caverns National Convention, served as a marketing and public relations advisor for luxury-eco fashion designer Linda Loudermilk, and have worked with such nonprofits as ECO, THE TREE PEOPLE, SAVE THE BAY, SIERRA CLUB and worked promoting economic development, tourism and outdoor adventures for the State of Hawaii, the State of Alaska, Camp Colorado's campaign, Government of American Samoa and promotional campaigns for Fiji, Nuevo Vallarta (Puerto Vallarta, Mexico), government of Brazil, Government of Bermuda and numerous hotel chains including Disneyland Hotel, Sheraton Hotels, Marriott Corp and more She is also the author of SUCCESSFUL RECAREERING and you can see her new book at

How to Make a GREEN Vision Board by Joyce Schwarz author THE VISION BOARD book

Okay, now's the surprise-- all vision boards are really green and eco-friendly because they are really recycling magazines! Kewl huh?

One of the most eco-friendly ways to celebrate Earth Day with your family, office mates and school class is to create a Vision Board.

HOW to create an eco-friendly vision board to celebrate EARTH DAY!

Blogger note, during the past few months, one of the most requested posts on this author's blog has been "how to create an eco-friendly vision board. So I've repeated and updated this step-by-step post in celebration of Earth Day 2009. ENJOY!

RECYCLING ASSOCIATIONS DOING VISION BOARDS WITH JOYCE SCHWARZ, speaker and author, Good news, Joyce Schwarz, author,being contacted by various recycling organizations and foundation to set up workshops across the nation to show why creating Vision Boards is eco-friendly.


First we want to assure that the book itself --208 page, 4-color throughouts, hard cover, 100 color pix IS "carbon neutral". A quick check online shows that News Corps, who owns Collins Desing, an imprint of Harper Collins Publishing does buy eco-offset credits

Be assured by creating Vision Boards using images from old magazines and other printed material such as direct mail flyers, invitations, posters, wallpaper and even newspaper clippings, you ARE RECYCLING!

There are several regional and national programs organized just to recycle magazines (more on those later, especially the ones from the MPA (Magazine Publishers Assn) and the City of New York.

A) Gather old magazines, newspapers, printed materials including greeting cards, cartoons from newspapers, grocery circulars and catalogs in a large basket.

B) Be sure if you purchase any new background paper or materials that they are recycled too. Recycled posterboard is available but you may want to create your board using such eco-friendly materials as flax or organic cotton fabrics or even the back of old paintings or posters you already have on your wall--continuing the recycling circle.

C) Gather up found objects, paperclips, broken jewelry, ribbons from a birthday party or wedding shower, stamps and stickers from envelopes (you can re-attach with a glue stick later)

D) Be sure any paints or marker pens you use are also eco-friendly. In fact considering buying a whole pack of these and sharing them with your neighbors so that they can create an eco-friendly board too!

Or use natural materials. I've seen vision boards created with charcoal, withwaters colored by natural herbs & flowers and almost water-painted onto the board.

Or even consider painting (with eco-friendly paints) a large bolder or old board you find near your garage

E) Consider making your own recycled hand-made paper from old paper --the back of old posters, the back of leftover wallpaper or even on the back of an old awning or window shade!

F) If you're framing your board, be sure to recycle an old frame that you have in your house or garage or to pick one up at a flea market or thrift store in your neighborhood.
Examples include:

I recycle everything I can.

I am recycling my kitchen scraps too now.

I turn off the water when I brush my teeth.

I have a filter for my tap water.

I am simplifying my life.

I buy only what I absolutely need to live.

I make my footsteps on earth as light as they can be.

I recycle for others when I see an opportunity.

I make sure what I buy is carbon-neutral.

Pictures for your eco-board.

One of the fun ways to get the right pictures for your eco board is to make a list of those pix you'd like to see on the board such as: a) a home garden you are planting b) a method of composting you are starting in your group/family c) Past pictures of your family in the outdoors -- climbing or hiking or enjoying the earth at places you've visited --yes, even if they are near and part of your home town area. They don't have to be at an exotic location

TRAVEL -- another option is to gather some travel brochures at your local travel agency or from the travel section of your newspaper or favorite website and put those on the board planning on where you'd like to visit that IS eco-friendly

G) Gather the raw materials together. Spread out an old blanket or tablecloth to cover the creation area (a table or an area of a floor or even do it outside on your patio).

H) Begin by making a list with your group of the Eco affirmations they would like to keep in the next year and for the rest of their lives!

Comedian Maria Bamford on Unwanted Thoughts & THE VISION BOARD book

HOW TO MAKE A BACK TO SCHOOL VISION BOARD TO PICTURE SUCCESS From Joyce Schwarz, motivational speaker and author The Vision Board book

By Joyce Schwarz, YOU CAN GO BACK TO SCHOOL AT ANY AGE...and now with President Obama's encourgement lots of moms are looking at finally getting their degrees. PLUS BABY boomers are looking at school and continuing education as a way to increase their options in the job market.

For most families with children this is the time to shop for clothes and to prepare for the new year ahead. But for many kids and even for adults (moms and dads and single people, even the thought of saying goodbye to the summer and heading back into the classroom causes jitters and nervousness.

WHAT WILL THE SCHOOL YEAR BE LIKE? Will I do well? What will the new classroom be like? Will it be different now that I'm starting high school or college? How will I deal with kids/people in my class?
Statistics on back-to-school students: more than 85 million in almost 100,000 different schools in the US alone:

All those questions are quite common for the approximately 85 million Americans going back to school ranging from nursery school through college this fall (statistics courtesy of the US Census Bureau and the National Retail Federation.

From data supplied by the U.S. Census Bureau and the National Retail Federation, here’s a look at back-to-school 2009, by the numbers.

Approximately 85 million: Children and adults enrolled in school - nursery school through college

19 million: Number of students in colleges and universities this fall

$548.72: Amount the average family with students in kindergarten through high school will spend on school merchandise this season

$47.5 billion: 2009 back-to-school and back-to-college expenditure in the U.S.


98,793: Number of public schools in the U.S. in 2006-2007

7.2 million: Teachers in the U.S. in 2008


So with all that money being spent -- $47.5 billion in back-to-school and back-to-college shopping who is looking at how kids and adults can succeed in their upcoming school year? It's Joyce Schwarz, author of THE VISION BOARD: the secret to an extraordinary life, Harper Collins Publishing, Collins Design who is encouraging families and the more than 7.2 milliion teachers in teh more than 98,000 public schools nationwide to vision their best possible new year by creating a Back-to-School Vision Board.

Best-selling author Joyce Schwarz recommends you create a 'back-to-school' vision board for those students in your family heading back to the classroom this fall. She says, it works for any age from kindergarten to post-gradute work. Schwarz is a paid motivational speaker who conducts workshops for such diverse organizations as Boeing Corporation and the SBDC (Small Business Development Corporation) on visioning your best possible future. Joyce lives and works in Marina Del Rey, CA and you can see her websites at and

What's a Vision Board? A vision board, according to author Schwarz who is also a nationally known career strategist and author of another best-seller SUCCESSFUL RECAREERING, explains is a visual map of what you want to create in your life. With a back-to-school vision board you can actually immerse yourself into the school year and visualize the positive results you will create this semester.

Schwarz has taught more than 10,000 students in her STAR*COURSE classes on how to be a star in your own life and does corporate seminars for such diverse organizations as Boeing Corporation and the SBDC (Small Business Development Centers) and trains teachers and counselors around the world from London to Sydney Australia to become Certified Vision Board Counselors so that they can show groups how to create vision boards like the Back-to-School Vision Board focusing in on educational success and maximizing learning potential for kids, teens and adults of all ages.


In her talk this Thursday night at the Mystic Journey Bookstore in Venice, California, Joyce will demonstrate how to create a Back to School Vision Board but she agreed to share some of the key steps with us here too.

1) Get a poster board approx 17 x 22 of any color.

2) Gather together colored markers, and stickers and other embellishments that will make your board colorful.
3) Get your kids and family together and brainstorm about how to make this school year the best possible year. Have some juice and water and snacks available as treats during this session.
4) Come up with some "power words" that express your the results of your brainstorming session such as: Happy, Challenge, Wisdom, Productive, Great Fun and even teen phrases like Awesome!

5) Add some favorite symbols such as a) happy face b) sunshine c)or even a new eco-lightbulb that is a bright color

6) Look up 'school quotes' on the internet or in a quotation book fro your bookshelf and add some of inspirational quote such as these:

"When the student is ready, the master appears." ~Buddhist Proverb

"Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere." ~Chinese Proverb

7) Have the kids or the adult students in your family rehearse the first day of school and the ideal scene that they want to experience and come up with some key words that express that vision such as: exciting, Welcoming and enjoyable

8) Thumb through some magazines and pick out pictures that represent your key words and power phrases but also add pictures that just 'seem right' to express how positive this school year can be for both parents and kids and their peers.

7) Cut or tear out those pictures. If you can't find any magazines -- go onto a major search engine online like Google or even Flickr and search for copyright free photos or for those covered by what's called the Creative Commons License so that you canuse them without violating anyone's rights.
8) Get a glue stick or white glue and begin to arrange A) the pictures B) the quotations c) the phrases and power words on the board in a decorative and pleasing collage. It doesn't have to be fancy but it should be colorful and positive.
) Get a glue stick or white glue and begin to arrange A) the pictures B) the quotations c) the phrases and power words on the board in a decorative and pleasing collage. It doesn't have to be fancy but it should be colorful and positive.

9) If your family is having trouble releasing any fears or negativity about the school year. Have the people experiencing those doubts write them down on little strips of paper and put them into a garbage pail and then make a ritual about disposing of them or under adult supervision even turning them into a small bonfire! Release that negativity before school starts.

10) If you have family pictures of the school you'll attend of fun pictures of school activites from last year's pix or your yearbook you can copy them at a copy center and add them to the mix too.

Going to a new school or starting college -- add some of the pix from the online websites (most schools have websites now or take a quick road trip to the area and add new photos to your Back to School Vision Board.

PUT YOU ON THE BOARD -- most people forget to put themselves on the board, explains best-selling author Joyce Schwarz, but she adds this is important for you can actually immerse yourself into the positive environment by adding your own happy, smiling picture. Don't have a picture then try on the new school clothes and take some digital pix and add those to the board.

DISPLAY YOUR BOARD -- display your board where you and the students can see it -- in their room or in the hallway or even in the kitchen. You can do one for the family or one for each child/adult going back to school. Parents anticipating empty nests for the first time can also create a vison board for their new life ahead.

Be sure to look and talk to your board. Read the positive quotes and power words. After all you talk to your pets or even your plants-- why not rehearse how wonderful the school year can be.

MAKE A PORTABLE COPY OF YOUR BACK TO SCHOOL VISION BOARD -- take the vision board to a copy place and get some scans done if they are too large to do with your home computer. Be sure to get color copies so that you can have the kdis put theim into the knapsacks or the adults into their briefcases. You can even do mini-versions so that you can stick a mini-back-to-school vision board in your purse or wallet or even laminate it and add it to your keychain or as a charm to dangle from your cell phone!

ADVICE FOR BOOMERANGE PARENTS & KIDS: on visioning & Vision Boards

Alas this questiion got pushed to the last question asked because of time limits so I'll address the answer briefly in this blog post and then cover it in a separate podcast/blog interview in the future. But here are some quick tips that I covered: a) Boomerang Kids are at a 'transition' point in their lives. One of the best ways they can prepare to vision their next stage in life is by: *volunteer work *concentrating on the gratitude and giving part of the success formula. They may want to do a board just on gratitude. Or they may want to do a board for a cause they believe in like "SAVE THE WHALES" etc just to get the feeling for it.

Let's Blow this Popsicle Stand --How any image can be interpreted with pix from Joyce Schwarz THE VISION BOARD author

How can you get the right image for your vision board? Well, we're coming up on father's day and this is the first one without my dad. So I decided to take one of his favorite phrases (considering it's Friday and very appropriate) and look at the phrase " LET'S BLOW THIS POPSICLE STAND -- which generally meant we were about to go out and get icecream or go to the movies or something fun! Not dissimLegend has it that this term was first coined in the 1940's by a Jamaican named Antoine Cleo. Antoine Cleo believed that filling the area of a popsicle with deadly radiation, could be used against certain countries as biological warfare. He believed that the radiation had certain brainwashing chemicles inside of it and that placing the popsicles at stands at random areas could allow more people to buy the popsicles, thus was his plan for world domination.

However, his plans were soon foiled when a strange cult called the Kindred Spirits (The Cult leader was Later identified as a man named Dushka Deshvky) blew up all the popsicle stands in America, including killing the perpetrator, Antoine Cleo.

"Lets blow this popsicle stand" was then started as an inside joke between 4 teenagers, then it spread throughout the United States, the phrase from then on meant, "Lets get out of here fast, before something bad happends to us."

Now maybe after hearing this, we can walk away a little wiser about what this phrase means. Source: Evil minds of the 1900's.

SAY YES TO LIFE WITH A VISION BOARD by Joyce Schwarz, author The Vision Board book


Here are 5 NO COST WAYS TO SAY AND "SHOW" YES to the world even before you make your vision board:

1) Go to the park and take a ride on a swing -- go ahead act the age of your shoe size? Ever heard that before --my shoe size is 8 -- so I get to be an 8 year old anytime I want!

2)Eat dessert first! I just found out that October 28 --the launch date of The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life is NATIONAL CHOCOLATE DAY! Ymmm so I'm taking this opportunity to remind you to eat your dessert first that day -- it's only 19 days away! A little bit of dark chocolate is full of anioxidents so go ahead splurge every day with a bite or two of the most decadent chocolate you can find!

3) Put on your happy cap if you're having a bad hair day. I always keep a few of my favorite baseball caps with fun logos hanging as decorations in one of my closets! When I'm feeling a bit down -- I ALWAYS wear my sequineed black and silver baseball cap and I take it on trips around the world-- even on a ride on an Arabian horse in Petra, Jordan!

NO MORE BAD HAIR DAYS! Okay -- we'll have to get some SHARE THE VISION baseball caps to tie in with our website! More on that later.
4) Share a compliment-- say something nice today to someone you DON'T KNOW -- if life is a little cloudy-- I always make sure that I give a compliment or two to someone I see in a store or even in a parking lot.

It's easy --and yes, you can be sincere -- after all -- most people love to be told that their car is a beautiful color or that their T shirt is so much fun or that you love that gorgeous Olive green handbag that the senior you see at the post office is carrying.

You'll be amazed how much it perks you up!

5) CALL A PAL you haven't talked to in a few months or even a few years. Ask them the questions about their life and family -- be a good listener, don't spoil the moment by dragging them down with your own doldrums! Remind them of a couple of fun things you did together.

That's a great way to open the call --start by saying "remember the time we did....."
Now make a list of all of the great things you appreciate in your life and all of the great people and take some pictures of them or go through a magazine and begin to place them on a vision board.

What's a vision board? Most of you know a vision board is a visual map or depiction of how you'd like to live your best life possible and a way to pay tribute to the wonderful things you have and are creating in your life.

Take a poster board or a blank journal and paste some of these YES images in your journal or on your board. And add affirmations that remind you that you are grateful for what IS yes in you life and what will add more YES to your life in the future. Speak in the present tense (not the future) I am grateful for the wonderful home I have on a hill in the forest! YES I have that home now! See it experience it.

It's time to Re-vision 2009 Do a new Vision Statement & Vision Board!

by Joyce A. Schwarz, and

At this time of the year, many of us are looking at what a great summer you had and maybe looking forward sheepishly to the end of the year because you have not accomplished what you hoped for.

That's why I recommend that you do a quarterly check up on your Vision Statement and Vision Board. I do mine at the start of each season: Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring etc.
The most important tools to guide you through the transitions of each year are a Vision Statement and a Vision Board.
What am I talking about? A vision statement is a vivid, idealized description of the outcome that you want. Something that inspires ... energizes you, and helps you create a mental image of your target.
My personal vision statement is short and sweet “TO LIVE THE POSSIBLE DREAM”, a positive spin on Don Quixote’s famous “Live the Impossible Dream”.
Some of you may be familiar with corporate mission statements or company mantras but all too often those come from the Ivory towers and are issued via memo.

Vision statements are much more personal – the concept started from the grass roots and spread across the world by people who want to realize their own personal talents and ensure that their life matches their values.

USE TO ENHANCE YOUR LIFE...and visualize the future: A vision statement can be used to enhance any part of your life, like family or career. It could also be created to visualize a new home or a specific project.

Here are some tips for creating your own vision statement:

*Summarize your vision in a powerful statement (1-4 sentences)

*Make sure it stands the test of time (think ballpark vs. small details)
*Suspend disbelief—anything is possible!

*Follow up with ‘inspired action’ (specific steps toward your vision)

*Post it somewhere you can see it daily (and update it quarterly)

*Consider starting with a wish list or bucket list of your dreams.

*Start with a sentence or two and pare it down to a short phrase

*Pick a power word like freedom and craft your vision around that word.

Where to get your inspiration for your vision?

Give a new spin to a classic song you love.
Rearrange an advertising phrase to inspire you.

See a favorite movie one more time.
Refer to a favorite quotation
Recite your favorite poem, it may offer a hint or two
Once you craft your vision statement here are some ways to use it to inspire you to create your create your best possible holiday season and lead into a new year to remember.
Post it where you can see it daily.
Carry a copy of it in your wallet or handbag.
Add it to your vision board.

Print it on the back of your business cards.

Use the power words in your new vision statement to update our current vision board or create a new vision board just for this upcoming season ie Summertime!

Multiple Streams of Income With Vision Board by Joyce Schwarz,

Thriving is a mind/body challenge . Most multiple entrepreneurs (who run several businesses at once will tell you the value of multiple income streams. The challenge is walking the talk and keeping your antenna up for great income opportunities that will help you make money while you sleep.

Many of you combine different skill sets in a portfolio that enables you to create what an income pie where various slices of that pie come from different income sources. In this article, you'll find updates for this new crossroads in our economy.

One of the keys to thriving and not surviving is to envision your future in advance. To not just get by but to create the life you really want now-- even if it seems impossible and your bank account is low or nil and you are facing what seems like enormous challenges.
Here are some key tips:

What's the future hold for your career/job or business? In this economy that is a real challenge to answer for many of you. BUT the insight you get in this article will guide you well toward creating the income you need to thrive not just survive!

The key to your future and to our economy's challenges may just be simple -- redesign the workspace/workplace and redefine the word WORK and CAREER which are thousands of years old -- and lag behind the opportunities in the 21st Century.

It sure ain't your grandfather's workplace. In fact it's vital that you know that okay to do more than just one thing in life.

A Wealth and Well-being Vision Board enables you to explore that many options for income creation --from artist to zoologist.

Can you say A.W.E?

One example of an abundance vision board that you may have seen online is a concept collage that combines ancient Mandala symbols with an updated version of visioning to show the future vision of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs launching new ventures.

Where are the opportunities? What sectors are the hottest? Many leaders now involved in the wellness revolution --sees great opportunity in AWE -- Abundance, Wellness and Enlightenment and are beginning to tap into the $12.5 Billion dollar personal growth industry.


Many of you feel guilty because you were raised to revere your grandpa's gold watch that he got at his retirement dinner and you went to the office with your mom on TAKE YOUR DAUGHTER TO WORK still see creating income as getting a paycheck.

Have your own business? For many of you a business or being an entrepreneur has resulted in just creating your own JOB or work that provides you just enough to get by. The new boss you have-- called Y-O-U is even tougher than many of the ones you had when you were working 9-5.

THAT'S WHY THE REAL ANSWER to financing your lifestyle (that's what I like to call the next-gen of what we used to call work or jobs) is MULTIPLE INCOME STREAMS.

Income that comes from a) a day job or some ongoing source of income -- it may not pay all your bills but you can depend on it-- maybe a contract with your former company, a part-time gig you take at the local retailer.

That's just the start-- from there you can create multiple income streams from such opportunities as:

a) Turn your hobby into cash -- if you own a boat-- consider giving sailing lessons. Even if you don't a pal of yours can probably get you into the local yacht club to give a workshop or two that people pay for.

b) Monetize your talents and hobbies. Whether you're a sailing fan or an artist or a natural foods follower, you can actually make money from your own talents and hobbies. . Everyone is creative-- if you love to write or you yearn to create art or you scribble out poems that are worthy of being on a greeting card - now is the time to join the online merchants evolution (note evolution not revolution). If you are an expert sailor, teach sailing. If you know natural foods, offer to shop for your neighborhood and charge them a service fee.

A popular concept called PRINT ON DEMAND (POD) enables you to post your project to sites like Amazon's Create Space and others where you can sell prints of your artwork or try where you can see handmade handicrafts so gorgeous it may bring a tear to your eye.

C) Be an affiliate for someone else who has their own artwork, or written creations to promote. Go ahead start today and become an Amazon Associate-- you can list

D) Become an Amazon merchant -- got more than one book to sell -- well then head over and start an Amazon merchant account for as little as $19.95 per month. You can add books to any mix of products or services that you sell.

E) Look into direct selling opportunities and in 'cloning' yourself and your website with your own reps, and affiliates around the world.
Multiple income streams can be as simple as adult in your extended family 'repping' the other person's products or services. Carry a handful of business cards for your colleagues and pals. Work out a finder's fee for when they get business from a referral by you and do the same for them. The standard is 10 percent of the first month's revenues referred to them by you. See wasn't that simple?
