Work, Life Balance: Make Extra Money

Okay, let's just get really honest. We all want to make extra money. Who doesn't right?

There are so many reasons to make extra money.

However, is it right to focus on making extra money? Is making money a bad thing? There are so many people I hear talking about how rich people must have 'robbed' someone or if our hearts are set on money then we are not focusing on what is 'right' in our lives.

Well, I want to have a little debate about that. I don't believe money is a bad thing. I also don't believe that wanting extra money is bad. Earning money is a good thing... it all depends on your MOTIVATION for doing so.

Money is simply a tool of production. Without it because of the world we live in, we simply don't have as much to exchange in the market place.
