I guess it depends on what you do to make extra cash.
Let's dive into the different phases of what I have been through and what I would anticipate would happen.
In My Youth – How I Make Extra Cash
When I was a younger I would rely on my allowance from my parents to make extra cash to pay for my toys and such. I remember I was getting like $5/week from my parents which was a pretty good deal in exchange for chores. I would clean some dishes, vacuum the house, wash the cars, and mop the house when needed.
For most $5 per week was on the low end but it was just enough to get a comic or 2 whenever I wanted them and also save up for the time we would roll on over to Toys R Us and I would get like a transformer or get a videogame (NES back in the day).
All the way back as far as I could remember I was looking to make extra cash to pay off the things I wanted which at the time seem a little bit out of reach, like a better bike.
See, at the time I was capped at $5/week regardless of what I did. I had to wait for the big holidays to break out like birthdays, christmas, and chinese new year to get that bonus I needed to make it out with some bigger toys.
Looking around at people I teach and people who look for guidance to what I do online things haven't changed for many, many people because people still will always want to make extra cash.
They continue to trade their time for a set amount of money. Many work hard in hopes of a bonus (yearly bonus which isn't set in stone). Hard work pays off to an extent. Once you start working for people you realize there is the amount of effort needed to keep your job then the effort needed to rank advance.
There are situations where rising in rank won't happen due to current seniority in place or the fact your unwilling to relocate. The company man is exactly what company's want. They want to lock you down and not help you make extra cash which could then help you leave the company.
