If you’re looking for some great money making opportunities all you need to do is look around and use your imagination. For example, I know a lady who lives down the street and she has yard sales about every other week to make some extra money.
It really depends on how much extra money you want to make. If you’re just trying to come up with a few hundred extra dollars so you can buy your special someone a great birthday gift, you’ll most likely be able to get that simply by placing a classified ad for some old stuff you don’t use anymore.
If you’re looking for something a little more long term, and more than a few hundred dollars, I strongly suggest that you investigate starting an online business. There are pros and cons associated with this method though:
1. The pros are that you can start an online business with very little money, it’s fairly easy to learn the skills you will need and you can be making money pretty quickly if you apply yourself. There is also virtually no limit to how much you can make online and when your business is big enough (making a lot of money) you can invest in software and outsourcing so you can still make a lot of money without having to work a lot of hours.
2. The cons are that it will take time to put it all together and to learn the knowledge and skills. You will have to be very strong to stick to it even though you’re putting in a lot of work but not making much money. And it can be easy to get distracted online and jump from one thing to another (if you do that you’ll never make any money online).
Still, as far as I’m concerned, it’s still the best thing going. I think for anyone who wants true financial freedom and isn’t just in need of a few hundred dollars, that this is the best and most realistic way to free yourself once and for all from the gerbil wheel.
Most people spend their days (and weeks, months and years) going off to a job that they don’t even like. If you really stop to think about it, that’s pretty depressing. Instead they could be spending that time building something long term. Something that will truly give them the financial and time freedom that many of us always dream of.
One of the best places for you to start when it comes to building an online business is to become an affiliate marketer. This is simply a commission based business where your main job is to get traffic to the website that is selling whatever product you are promoting.
Once you’ve gotten good at it you can add other products and really scale your business. It’s at this point where it really becomes exciting. Let’s say you’re just starting out and you’re making about $500 a month promoting one product. Now that you’ve got the basics down what’s stopping you from promoting 10 products?
If each of those products also make you $500 a month you will be earning $5,000 a month. Not bad. And for the most part, it won’t take a whole lot more effort to promote 10 products than it does to promote 1!
That’s just one of many money making opportunities but it should give you an idea of just what is possible.
