Dash for More Cash: Ways to Get Cash in 2022

Right about now after seeing prices going nowhere but up, you more than likely have money on the brain. Even if you saw some kind of pay increase this year already, it is disappearing as you shop and I don’t mean just for those big expensive things. I’m talking food, clothing, and shelter along with every kind of energy you can name including the biggie, gasoline. So you are probably looking for ways to get cash.

You may just gloss over the numbers when it is mentioned for a number of reasons. You may think “well, that’s what they’ll pay everyone” or “I need this job and I’m not going to be fussy about the pay and blow it”. Even if you want more pay, there is the dreaded, “we can only pay you a salary of $x, so take it or leave it”.

Making money and building your wealth doesn’t always come easy. In fact, the road to financial wealth is often long and for most it’s the road to Neverland. A not-so-fun fact is that when it comes to making more money or accumulating wealth, things often take time.

You can work really hard at your job and maybe get a promotion and then earn more. Or you start your own side hustle that can require months of effort before you receive any payout.

Will You Ever Find a Job That You Love?

Here’s a topic that I feel that I am totally qualified to talk and advise you about: job satisfaction. Strangely though, it’s not because I am living proof that if you try hard enough, you can and will find that “dream job” that you really, really want. Rather, like most of the people you see around you who work in a job that they seem to be trapped in, I was one of those people for about 98.7% of my working career and you are probably one of them right now too. But wouldn’t be great to find a job that you love, that you really, really love?

I've had many jobs over my career, and to find a job that you love isn't always easy. Follow my must-do behaviors to find your best match.

The Work in the Process of Actually Finding “Work”

I guess they call it “work” because let’s face it, it usually isn’t fun, is it?

What Is Deferred Compensation and the Legend of Bobby Bonilla

Getting good compensation for our time and energy is the reason why we get up every day, go to work, and try to pay all of our bills. For me and for the vast majority of us, it’s an endless challenge to get a good paying job (one we actually like) and then to be paid or compensated fairly for what we do and have it be enough to cover the wants and needs of life! To put it simply, it’s a struggle, but what choice do we really have but to do it? Unless your name is Rockefeller or Donald Trump Jr., not much. So we may know about compensation, but what about deferred compensation?

Deferred compensation can potentially benefit both the employer and employee, but there can be drawbacks as well. Here are some of the pros and cons.

Compensation vs. Deferred Compensation

We understand what compensation is pretty clearly. It can be money, but it can be anything that is valuable and sometimes actually is just that. Vacations, cars, you name it. Now you and I may never see such things as part of our compensation, but some folks see them routinely. Hollywood and entertainment types get that kind of compensation in their contracts for employment and it is possible you may someday get a form of it as well. If you are good…and lucky, that is.
