It’s true what they say, “it isn’t until you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything”, and I was faced with the daunting task of finding my way into another career when most companies were laying off people in droves. “Hire you now?“, they’d say, “We just let 20 go!” After looking down the barrel of my dwindling savings and unemployment, I realized it was time to take control of my future and fail or succeed on my own merits.
Project Payday – Project Payday is one of those sites that has testimonials of people who have earned thousands of dollars by getting paid to get trial offers. I’m not saying you’ll earn thousands, but it is legit and you can earn some extra cash. They assume that by paying you to do a free trial, you’ll either like the product and purchase it, or forget to cancel the trial and get charged for it. If you can keep track and cancel before you get charged (if you don’t want the product), then this is a great site for making some money.
Matador Network – Matador Network pays up to $60 for each accepted post, but standard pay is around $20-$25. They don’t really focus on a minimum word count, but they have a maximum count of 1,500 words.
great ideas list..a care giving agency is the best option in my opinion. Starting one and managing it is also easy. For management there are several softwares like http://www.saviicare.com that can help you handle the agency easily.
Many websites like ArtFire and Etsy allow you to sell whatever creative you can make. Take a look at these websites and you’ll be astonished at the variety of stuff people make and sell it through Internet. Larger web stores, like eBay, also allow you to earn money from your creative instincts.
Not everything is just a Google search away. Media organizations hire fact checkers to make sure that items in stories are accurate and that sources quoted really exist. Other organizations need people to find statistics and other data for presentations and reports. There are plenty of opportunities online to get started researching at home. Just be prepared to get into some really esoteric topics that will take you way beyond Wikipedia.
Many families with kids, including single-parents, have very limited time resources, creating a demand for part-time child care providers (and a business idea opportunity for you). If you love kids and have some spare time, you can earn plenty of side income by looking after children while their parents are away. Just be sure to identify the particular age group you’re comfortable caring for and you’re all set after any necessary certifications. Establishing a home-based daycare center capable of servicing six or more kids is also a lucrative way to really expand upon this business idea if you have the right environment for it.
I figure a few readers will be sitting in a pub saying, “I need money now,” while reading this post on their smartphones. If that happens to include you, check out my previous post on sneaky bar bets you’re sure to win. You could have a small pile of cash in front of you in the next few minutes.
Swagbucks – Swagbucks is great for earning some extra cash. You can do a variety of things to make money, from taking surveys to using their search engine. You won’t get rich, but you will earn a few bucks. If you have the time to kill, you can spend it earning some extra cash, instead of surfing the web.
It’s quite different from pay per sale, here you don’t share any profit with anyone, it’s yours forever. However, you need to determine the license giving to any resale rights product, master resale license and private label rights are the best. How do you access resale rights products?
We usually think of Craigslist as a place to buy and trade random stuff, but Craigslist can actually be a great opportunity to sell your services online to an active and engaged audience. Simply check the “jobs” section and “gigs” section for specific cities and see if anything matches your skills. The great thing about Craigslist is that it is one of the highest converting traffic sources on the internet (think active buyers) which can mean more opportunities at higher pay.

Self-employment is relatively common among new immigrants and ethnic minorities in the United States. In the United States, immigrants tend to have higher rates of self-employment than native-born Americans regardless of race or ethnicity. But, self-employment in the United States is unevenly distributed across racial/ethnic lines. Immigrants and their children who self-identify as White have the highest probability of self-employment in lucrative industries such as professional services and finance. In contrast, racial and ethnic minorities are less likely than native-born Whites to be self-employed, with the exception of Asian immigrants who have a high rates of self-employment in low prestige industries such as retail trade and personal services. Much like the regular labor market, self-employment in the United States is stratified across racial lines. In general, self-employment is more common among immigrants than their second-generation children born in the United States. However, the second-generation children of Asian immigrants may continue to seek self-employment in a variety of industries and occupations.
Finally, please take the time to research every job lead you find and every site you visit carefully. Even sites that purport to be impartial sometimes aren’t. I just visited a site that supposedly had general information on telecommuting.
Whether you start big or small, it doesn’t really matter – as long as you start. If you save 10 per cent of your income, begin with just 5 per cent and live off the remaining 95 per cent. Save consistently, even before you pay your monthly bills and debts. Find a way to gradually increase your savings rate to 6 per cent, 7 per cent, 10 per cent, if not more. Ideally, you should put aside 15 to 20 per cent of your savings in an investment fund. What’s important is that you start now, and get into the habit of saving and investing.
