Frugal Tip: Seize the Opportunity

Did you know that there’s a massive shortage of workers in America right now, specifically in the service industry? There’s a massive opportunity right in front of you and you don’t want to miss it. Take advantage of this during the summer. Because there’s a shortage, you have the power. Many and most employers are letting you pick your schedule, are willing to give you flexible hours, and will pay you way above the standard for most service jobs. You really have a lot of control when it comes to negotiating an employment contract for summer work. Plus, with everyone going out again after COVID, you can expect really good tips and plenty of customers. Service industry work might not be glamorous but there are a lot of reasons this might be to your benefit this summer, many of which I cover in this episode. This is a great opportunity to save up for a new phone, add cash to your emergency fund, pay off loans early, and a lot more.
