School Funding Action Plan

by James & Miel on September 27, 2006 · 1 comment

As our regular readers know, we are continually working on ways to maximize our revenues and minimize our expenditures. It turns out that education is an expensive habit to feed. With both of us in graduate school, and only one of us working, that leaves us with considerable challenges to making ends meet.

We got together this evening and discussed the challenges and our various opinions, laid out possible solutions, and developed an action plan oriented towards achieving two main goals by the end of the year. We realize that these actions won’t entirely make up for the education deficit (or is it a surplus), but it is a step in the right direction.

Goal: Convert all incidental sources of funding, i.e. funds that are available for conversion, and convert them into high yield sources of monthly income.
