Build a blog.  Even in our limited attention span world, blogs are still relevant. A blog is incredibly important for launching and growing your side hustle. A blog gives you a place on the Internet to promote what you do, to build a following, and to showcase what you do or offer.

Sell on Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Classified Groups or Instagram. This is a great way to declutter your home as you prepare for a life of future travel. You can also step it up a notch and turn reselling into a lucrative gig. Some benefit by creating a specific niche, such as selling designer clothes, specific brands, or specialize in products, such as a niche seller of sleeping bag liners or reseller of limited edition running clothing.

Where to Get the Best Chai Lattes in New York City with Kids in Tow

April 11, 2018

I’m the mom who drags her kids around Manhattan just to get a good chai latte. There is no such thing as a ‘long block’ when chai is calling my name.

For me, a good chai latte consists of the right amount of spice and sweetness with mild, not bitter almond milk.

Given how much time I spend at Starbucks #starbucksschooling my kids, you might guess that I’d be obsessed with Starbucks chai lattes.  Nope, no sale.  I like Starbucks chai lattes if they contain regular, cow’s milk, but I prefer to avoid dairy when I can. While my teen really likes Starbucks almond milk, I think it is bitter and has an overly roasted, almond, nutty taste. She thinks maybe I’m a bit nutty. I also think the chai concentrate that Starbucks uses is heavy on the sweetness and light on the spice.

When I’m in NYC, I enjoy trying chai lattes at the many unique coffee shops scattered around the city.  When I’m in the mood for a sure-to-like cup, these are my go-to coffee shops for a good chai latte. They serve chai lattes made not from real spices and/or a pre-made concentrate, and not from powder mixes.
