Money: What Rich Social Workers Do To Make More

Ask any random social worker on the street what the number one complaint in social work is and they’ll say it’s the money (or, rather, the lack thereof).

This is not a new complaint and not likely one to go away in the next several years. Social work has long been associated with volunteerism and poverty and it seems that the more good we try to do, the harder it is to make a living doing it. Continue reading

Living Richly From the Inside Out: My Interview With Karlecia Swan

I always love to hang out with social workers – so much fun and self-awareness in one place it’s intoxicating.

But I especially love when I get to hang out with old classmates who have gone on to do great things. Being with those people really helps me to put my journey into perspective because I get to see how far we’ve all come.

And on that note, I recently had the great pleasure of hanging out with one of my former classmates, Karlecia Swan. Karlecia and I would often sit near to each other in class and subsequently end up running role plays and group projects together.

This week my father had a heart attack.

Yeah. That’s some real ‘ish, I know.

But get this: it was evidently his second one. We found out he had had a smaller one prior because the doctors discovered some additional veins that had grown to try to compensate for the loss of an artery that had died at some point in the past . Continue reading

5 Reasons Why Social Workers Need to be Rich

When most people think of social workers they don’t normally think of wealth or riches. In fact, if they do think of money at all it’s usually in the not-making-any sort of way.

It’s an unfortunate association, but the profession is often considered to be one of the most underpaid that exists. I say unfortunate because although the career path is lauded as a noble one, the typical correlating salary is less than prestigious. Continue reading

Proof Positive That You Can Profit From Your Passion: Lessons From Social Work Publishing Pioneer, Linda Grobman

Picture it…

The year was 1996 and I was surrounded by 49 other eager beavers in the basement computer lab of my college library.

Everyone was engrossed in their own screen, feverishly typing away to reach their assignment deadlines in time, or scouring the internet for that crucial piece of knowledge that would make their assignment that much more complete.

(dramatic pause…) And then I saw it. Continue reading

Journey Into Entrepreneurship & Parlaying Your Skills: My Interview With Jet Setting Jasmine

Have you ever wanted to talk to someone who had started a successful business and find out how they did it?

Well, have I got a treat for you!

A few months ago I attended the 2014 NASW National Conference. It was a star-studded event of social workers and world change makers that wasn’t to be missed. For me it was truly a magical event full of serendipitous encounters and life long connections.

Each day of the conference the breakout sessions were organized into topics such as Clinical Social Work, Ethics, Macro Practice and Finance. Of course I went to several of the Financial sessions, and was glad I did because that’s where I met Jasmine Johnson. When she stood up at one of our sessions and said that she’d started four successful businesses I just had to meet her.

A Master’s-level social worker and multi-passionate entrepreneur, Jasmine discusses:

  • how a conversation with friends turned into a successful fitness studio
  • the truth about what it takes to cut costs when you’re first starting out
  • how she uses her social work skills to create unique solutions for clients
  • the guilty pleasure that not only makes money but helps people get in touch with their sexy side

Jasmine’s businesses have been featured in the Tampa Bay Times, ZumbaExhilarate.com.au,  WBLS 107.5 FM, VividRadio SXM, and on NBC News Channel 8 to name a few, and after this interview, you’ll understand why. Jasmine is truly making waves as a social worker and is well on her way to riches and wealth.

Because we were in the middle of the Social Work Conference we conducted the interview in a busy hotel lobby, but don’t let that stop you from getting the valuable information that Jasmine had to share. And be sure to watch until the end. Jasmine has a great challenge for us all that can revolutionize your business and life  if you follow through. When you’re done, let us know the number one thing you’re going to take away from this post and share it with your friends.

See you on the rich side!
