My mother died Monday night. She was 74.

Earlier this week, I began writing a memorial for her. I know I haven’t talked much about Mom here at Get Rich Slowly, but she probably played the biggest role in molding me into the person I am today. After writing 2500 words, I realized I have a lot to process. And maybe Get Rich Slowly isn’t the place to publish a tribute to her. I don’t know.

In any event, I’m taking some time off.

For the next few weeks, I’ll be dealing with the logistics of Mom’s memorial service and her estate. And while I’m taking time away from Get Rich Slowly to handle these things, it feels like a good opportunity to tackle a few big projects I’ve been putting off — including the “de-design” of this blog.

My plan is to take a three-month sabbatical. I may indeed publish a bit here and there — and I’ll regularly update the “Spare Change” section on the front page and send the GRS Insider email newsletter — but my intention right now is to step away from Get Rich Slowly until the end of the year.

I’ll be back on 01 January 2023.

Here’s Who’s Hiring for the Holidays

As the holidays near, the same companies that you’re browsing through to find gifts and supplies are hiring — in the thousands. And maybe even tens or hundreds of thousands.

Just a short time before Halloween, the number of permanent and seasonal positions needing to be filled in advance of the holidays for the companies we researched is around 515,000.

Seasonal jobs can help you recoup costs related to gift giving or traveling, and they may even blossom into a full-time career. But the fact that many of them are, or can become, permanently extends stability into the new year.

If you’re looking for seasonal work, this all translates to good news. To entity workers, many employers are offering $15 starting wages or higher, sign on bonuses, employee discounts and other interesting benefits.

Here’s a look at who’s hiring for the holidays and how to apply.
