That includes which money making opportunities you need to focus on and those you need to let go. As we started to plan our money making opportunities and financial issue, let’s take a look at the post “5 Great Money Ideas for 2011” from Yahoo Finance.

  1. Cancel those dangerous rewards cards – the cards where you earn points for every dollar that you charge.
  2. Use your Social Security tax cut to add to your savings or reduce your consumer debt.
  3. For adults and young people seeking higher education in 2011, chose a school whose costs keep you out of debt.
  4. Buy a home only if you’re putting down roots and feel happier owning than renting.
  5. Rekindle your affair with stocks. It’s hard to fall in love again, after the emotional breakups of 2000 and 2008.

Learning to spend less and save money is as important as learning to make money. In order to become a successful entrepreneur, there are lots of things we need to learn other than pursuing money making opportunities.
