What are the best ways to make extra money?

April 30, 2008 11:28am CST
Hey, Im a student so therefore I am obviously always VERY low on money. I have looked for part time jobs but there seems to be none about at the moment, therefore I want a job tha I can do from home, which is not a scam or makes you pay. Ive tried paid surveys and all sorts and I just cant find anything, not even home receptionist jobs! Its beginning to be a big strain and I would love to actually find something. If anyone has any ideas, experiences, or advise dont be afraid to give it!

First off, Welcome to myLot. This is a wonderful site to be on, and I hope you come to enjoy being here. You can learn a lot here if you take time to. As for places to make $$. I see some of the suggestions others have made here, and I agree with the one about Reviewstream. That is one worth checking out even though I have never done much with it due to lack of time. All I can tell you is look around, and check out some of the older discussions and such on ways people earn money on here. I know it all depends on what you are looking for, and what interests you. Because what works for one person may not always work for you.

Try to do surveys and stuff, that is the only way to make some money, without having to set hours or what have you. It will take awhile but it will give ou something rather than nothing

Well, I use TreasureTrooper.com and I make quite a bit fo extra money. You don't have to pay for it. There aren't a lot of legit online jobs, so most of the work has to be done for yourself like treasuretrooper. I have made almost $1700 from treasuretrooper.

I've done some GPT sites, they are good to work on between classes. I've got a place talking about them. Nowadays, i'm a sales rep for cutco. Flexible hours that you set, $15 base pay (per hour), growth potential within company and commission! I LOVE IT.

I was working for a pretty good company for a couple of months, while waiting on my disability to go through. The company is West work at home. You have to have a computer with DSL, or Cable, in other words high speed connection, and a fhone line that can be used for taking calls at any time. What this company does is accept calls for infomercials, it is mostly night work and weekends, they pay per minutes talked. I was averaging 8 to 9 dollars an hour, they do all your training on-line, free of charge, After you have been with the company a few weeks, then you can train to take calls from Home Shopping Network, with that you have better hours, and a higher pay rate. Give it a try, all it cost is your time to train. Good luck and blessings.

I am also a student and I am also low in money sometimes but I regiteres to some maoney making stuff kind of sites. The one thing you need to keep in mind is patience and dedication. The day you think you have lost both of traits leave this stuff. You have to go through many trial and error before you find right site.

I have owned almost a dozen businesses in my life, started out as a dishwasher at a Sizzler Steakhouse and have been the CEO of a publicly traded corporation. The main challenge I see in todays up and coming citizens is that they want something for nothing. They want to make money, but do not want to put the time and effort into doing what it takes to make money. People want the government, some job, or someone or something else to take care of them. I have a suggestion that was given to me by one of my mentors: The best helping hand you will find is the one at the end of your own wrist. Asking to make money without investing in yourself is like sitting in front of a fireplace with no wood or fire in it and demanding that it create fire and heat you. If however you have to put wood in it forget it, you just want a fireplace someone else built to heat you. You will never get ahead with that mentality. My reccommendation is to grow, learn, read, invest money in yourself because it is the best asset you have and what goes into your mind cannot be taken from you. Start a business, any business, and learn from it. You will make money based upon what you know how to do, if you dont know how, then you need to learn it, there are only two ways of doing that, trying things and failing, and finding a mentor to teach you. If you are unwilling to do either, then you had better get used to the idea of struggling financially for the rest of your life because thats exactly what will happen. -Alex S
