I’ve been watching the TV show Million Dollar Neighbourhood on OWN the past 3 weeks and am inspired by these people and the challenges they have been given. You can follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/MillionDollarNeighbourhood#!/MillionDollarNeighbourhood
John and I have started purging areas of the house (actually I have started purging my office stuff) and are planning to have a yard sale in May. We’ve already filled one garbage bag and just started tonight. Tonight’s episode showed the families listing their skills on a white board and participating in a skills exchange with other’s who had skills they needed. They also put support groups together to assist some in gaining full time employment.
These ideas have prompted me to post on my blog my list of skills that might assist me in getting some freelance, part time, or full time employment. We’re in the process of getting our finances in order and learning all we can in this area, so increasing income is part of that plan. I love my business with Mary Kay and my volunteer time with the Backus-Page House Museum, but there are skills I have that I can use to contribute more to our household. I recommend watching this great TV program.
