5 Ways to Create Multiple Streams of Income That Work For Me

By all means, I’m not a financial consultant, nor am I good in numbers. But yesterday, I just had a conversation with a realtor who offered me some options for accommodation for my next trip that I’m comfortable.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have the Queen’s privilege for sure (don’t blame me, I’m currently in the midst of watching The Crown, and the news about the late Prince Philip kinda brought the anecdote!)… But looking back, I realized that I got more opportunities to choose things than a few years ago.

For one thing, I know that the fact that I currently have multiple streams of income has really changed the perspective. If there’s anything that I’ve learned the hard way, it is the fact that to have money, one has to have money first.

Generalist vs Specialist: Which One is Better When You’re a Blogger or a Freelancer?

For those who know me personally, you probably know which one I am. I’m a generalist inside and out. I’m the kind of person who probably knows something about everything.

One minute I could talk about sports, the next thing you know we’d engage in a conversation about politics. That’s what I am.

I speak 4 languages, when God knows I can’t speak any of them properly on a more formal occasion since I use all of them for casual conversation only. Just yesterday, I had a hard time explaining what “engagement” means in Indonesian while later on, I couldn’t tell the word my mom said in Sundanese, which is ironically my first language.

The idea of writing about this generalist vs specialist came when I decided to hire more assistants to help me with this blog. Yup, The BeauTraveler now has a team of 6 including me!

The hiring process made me realize that I really am a jack of all the trades, yet master of none. I ran this blog all by myself, but there are some details that I barely even know exactly how it works. I help clients with Instagram engagement, yet I barely even upgrade my knowledge about it.
