There is absolutely nothing wrong with this although why stop there? Why not try going next level and bringing in more revenue?  Why should you miss out on other great potential revenue opportunities. Challenge yourself more!   Don't stop, this way you continuously stay motivated and goal driven. If you're still soaring with passion for the...
