I am currently trying to secure part time employment but that can be very hard in this economy. I need to bring in money but not sure how to make that happen. That is when I learned the term “octopus” approach.
The octopus approach is the idea of pulling income from multiple sources, not just one. This is perfect! Instead of relying on one employer, I can pull smaller amounts from different revenue streams and, possibly, end up making more money then I would from one employer.
This has me motivated like you would not believe. The possibilities are endless and I can manage all this with kids at home. Now, this looks like I need to be good about my time management but that is not a challenge for a super mom like me. I am currently applying for positions that will work together in harmony. I will keep you all posted on the status of my job search but I just had to share this new term with you.
What is your experience with being an octopus mom?
