Get a Second Job

Roger Fossum

I don’t know if this counts or not but last year I worked 80 hours a week for almost the entire year. During that time, I settled over 10,000 dollars of personal/family debt that I was making little to no headway on prior to taking on the second job.

I also started paying my tithe prior to taking the second job.

Yes, the year went by in a blink. It felt like the year began, I yawned and the year ended. But I was out of a mountain of unnecessary debt. It was worth it.

I was doing computer data entry for a bank. I had a job where I called insurance brokers and company representatives all around the country and facilitated the setting up of health savings account programs for their employees.

At night, I started doing security work for a casino. The security job didn’t pay as much at first but before long, they gave me a raise that outpaid what I was making on my other job. I worked 11 to 7 a.m. on security and worked 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the bank job. Yes, my sleep was short on many days but you can do whatever you put your mind to.
