This time of year can bring about a lot of anxiety and feelings of earning inadequacies. When we look back over our previous year, we may feel that we didn’t make as much money based on our perceived worth.

Making more money in 2017 can be as simple as 1-2-3, if you understand how you earn your money. Imagine if you lost your job and your income suddenly stopped. How would you generate income?
