Bring in Extra Money By Investing in Your Own Entrepreneurship



People find security and knowing that they can take care of themselves and the people they love. In order to do so, people sometimes get jobs that they might enjoy in order to bring home what their family needs.


That is why entrepreneurship is so wonderful! It serves as an opportunity to do what you love and get paid to do it. Now, the fear of becoming an entrepreneur is understandable. Where do you start? Where do you go once you start? What if it doesn’t work?

No one wants to make the jump into a dream unless they’re sure it can become a reality. It’s important to remember that everyone who is now big once started small. Apple and Amazon.com were started in garages. Quicken Loans was started with a few men and a couple of phone books. The magic in turning your passion into profit begins once you realize it’s a possibility.

Each of us has a passion. Each of us could use an extra couple of dollars in our pockets. The best thing you can do for yourself is study what you love, and find a way to profit from it. Do you enjoy cutting your own hair? Open up your Saturday mornings to cutting hair for a couple of hours. You will reach a state of nirvana doing what you love and having some extra cash to add to your monthly income.

That’s where entrepreneurship can begin. It’s the chance to discover what you love to do, and then find a way to profit from it. Once you begin getting paid for your hobby, just see where the road of happiness can take you. Build relationships as well as clientele. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve once you have the need to make a difference in your life.

The Benefits of Working with Technology

Every day something new is created in the world of technology. Inventions range from phone apps to solar energy panels. With all of these new inventions, it would be crazy not to acknowledge the benefits of working with technology.

Benefit #1: Easy Ways Get Started

As popular as technology is, there are more people studying it and perfecting it every day. Everything you need to know about starting a career in technology is a click away! There are free Ebooks and Youtube lectures that could help you gain basic information about popular jobs in the technology world. We at Osiris Organization also offer hands-on technology training and entrepreneur programs. This way you understand how to profit from the skills you acquire with us.

Benefit #2: Always Finding Work 

Technology isn’t slowing down! Learning IT skills could take you anywhere in the world! Technology failure is not an option anymore. If a computer crashes, someone is going to call the IT department to fix it because they need their computer to get their work done!  You would never be out of work!

Benefit #3: Changing the World

People always need some form of help to improve their own lives. Technology is a great resource to distribute that help effectively and efficiently. The Internet alone has changed more than it’s share of lives. Thirty years ago, people were going door-to-door trying to spread whatever word needed to be spread. Websites for fundraisings, donations, and cause awareness are bringing attention to millions of people in one day!

The video below will show just some of the ways we use technology today. You will be amazed at how things have changed over the past thirty years and the possibilities that come with it.

A Note About Mentors

Your mentor is coming.

We at Osiris Organization know that in today’s time, a friendly face, a kind word, or a positive gesture can go a long way to elevate stress and inspire motivation. We were made to believe that strength and courage come with overcoming obstacles. No one wants to make you face those obstacles alone in order to overcome them.  

The most important thing about finding a mentor is accepting the idea that a mentor could help you. Mentors come in all forms through all avenues in our lives. They can show up at our jobs or someone can send a person to us.

The important thing to remember is that you are worth someone’s time and energy. If you feel as if your life is going to plan, now is the perfect time to mentor another person in the right direction.

You can change to world, one person at a time, or someone can change your world.

Please watch the beginning of this woman’s journey about how her mentor gave her a new outlook on life. Share it with anyone who could use a boost in his or her life.

Big Dreams for All People

Children are taught to dream big. They are taught that they should reach for the moon, and even if they miss, they will still land among the stars. As these same children grow up, they start to see reality unfold around them. Things such as money, time, and work turn into distractions from their original ambitions.

These distractions have become the norm for budding entrepreneurs, but they don’t have to be! Lack of money, poor time management, and obligations to work are not stop signs. They are simply speed bumps on the road to success.

We at Osiris Organization wanted to share this video with those children who are becoming young adults, to those young adults becoming adults, and to those adults still trying to find their way in the world.  Every step you take toward your dream is worth it. It can be something as small as drawing out your future company logo, or as big as applying for a small business loan.



Anyone can stay busy by living life one day at a time. Those who want to become successful stay productive. They make every step count toward becoming everything they need to be to become happy.

Young Entrepreneurial Development

Young entrepreneurs have a special power within them. They are driven. They are intelligent. They are ready to make a difference in the business world and they are not going to let their age stop them.

The tricky thing about being a young entrepreneur is learning how to have fun and stay focused on your goals. Short term and long term goals help keep our youth focused. They also help make our youth feel proud with every step they take to accomplish their goals.

At Osiris Organization, we mentor our young entrepreneurs to have a business mindset, but also remember to have fun doing what they love. Entrepreneurs create their own enterprises because they want to do something they enjoy, and they want to do something no one else does. Our goal at Osiris Organization is to make sure that they reach their goals for personal and professional development.

Below is a video that should be passed on to every classroom, every mentoring group, and every business. This video talks about the truth of structuring yourself to be successful in your business ventures. Although it is aimed at young entrepreneurial development, there are many adults who could benefit from the tips in this video.

Happy Father's Day!

Today is the day to give the men in your life the admiration they deserve. There are many men who have not had children of their own, but have stepped up to the plate when a child needed them.

The men surrounding us have all given us something of extraordinary value at one point in our lives; otherwise, they wouldn’t be in our lives! That value was presented in more forms than one. We’ve seen it presented as words, gifts, actions, touches and time. Each moment has been saved so that we may give that same affection to our own children someday.

This Father’s Day is special because today we are going to give our love to our fathers, uncles, brothers, friends, elders, and mentors.  Any man who has made a difference in your life has fathered your spirit. They made you a priority. They have protected and provided for you as a man should.

We must dedicate the time to love our fathers, our men, for they took the time to love us. They have forever altered us and they should see the wonders they have created.
