If your rent is a quarter of your salary, you’re living beyond your budget. Consider downgrading. It may be less comfortable, but if you want financial freedom and long-term peace of mind, it is definitely worth considering this option.
In my opinion, if your blog is not getting too much traffic or in the beginning of your blogging business, Affiliate Marketing is the best to have some sales and make at least some Cash. I don’t like to use Adsense, which makes your site looks bad.
Don’t laugh. I’m serious. If you want to get in on the ground floor of a booming industry, then meditation is a good place to be. 2015, the industry raked in over $1 billion (1). That doesn’t even include mindfulness apps and wearable tech, which are proliferating faster than the number of Angelina Jolie’s children.
You can get paid for your high-quality smartphone pictures, believe it or not. Some people are extremely gifted with smartphone photography and can make their pics look very professional. Below are a few sites that are interested in purchasing smartphone pics:
Think about the environment in which you’ll be working. For me, the basement was the only space large enough for all my gadgets and files. My husband set up fluorescent lights all over the place, so there was ample lighting. Still, working below ground got to me after a while, especially those short winter days when sun was scarce. Try to pick a space with good natural light and a door you can close to the outside world.
There are many tasks out there that busy people would gladly pay someone else to do, such as housecleaning, dog walking, lawn care, doggie doo-doo cleanup, car washing services and other similar tasks. Get creative with this. Look for simple tasks that you don’t mind doing that would be a huge time-saver for other people, and offer your services via Craigslist, local bulletin boards, or local newspapers.
Every town, big or small, needs (and deserves) a few good restaurants. Your local pizza castle won’t suffice for all occasions and events. But much like owning a bakery, opening a restaurant is not something to go into halfheartedly. You need to have the passion, the drive, and the obsession of both a great entrepreneur and a chef (or at least a hard-core foodie).
5. Affiliate Advertising: If you have a blog that you want to monetize, consider integrating affiliate advertising into your site. One of the simplest ways to obtain advertising is through one of the affiliate advertising network services on the web, such as Clickbank or Commision Junction. Unlike traditional print advertising, affiliate advertising is a performance based system, meaning that you won’t earn money until your readers actually click on your links and then purchase the product. After the purchase is made, you earn a percentage of the sale. I caution you not to count on this to pay your mortgage (at least not initially); you’ll need significant traffic to your site before you can generate serious money through affiliate advertising.
8. Sell Crafts on Etsy.com – Are you creative? Maybe selling your own creative products is the way to go. You could open a shop on Etsy and sell your crafts to others who are looking for unique products. You could sell paper goods like cards and invitations, or even home decor products themed around the holidays.
Busy schedules can stress people out. It can also disrupt family life to the point that busy parents and homework-laden kids barely have time to prepare decent dinners and weekend meals. Hence, the surprising demand for part-time family chefs as a business idea. If cooking healthy and delicious meals is your thing, then this lucrative side business idea can supplement your regular income by helping feed busy homes. Hear Gaby Dalkin’s story of going from side business idea to full-time blogger while she was a part-time personal chef right here on my podcast.
