Finding Ways To Make Extra Money

Aug 17, 2007
You are probably just like me and are always looking for ways to make extra money. Even though I work full-time and make a decent amount of money I am always searching for ways to earn more. Every month I get bills and I know that they are not going to go away, so I can't just ignore them.

I have discovered throughout the years that their are other legitimate ways to make extra money without resorting to doing illegal things. Doing illegal things like selling drugs or prostitution may make you a decent tax-free living but these are not a good way to take care of your bills for they will land in jail for a long time.

I am going to show you some of the ways that I have found to make extra money that have been tested and proven to work for me. Some of these ideas are going to sound outrageous and pathetic, but if you really need the extra money you are going to have to be creative. If you don't have a job, one of the best ways to make extra money is to find one.

You should also consider picking up a second job or a part-time job in addition to your main job. I am currently working full time and have a part-time job on the weekends on top of my internet business. It is very hard but I want to get rid of my debt as soon as possible so I can enjoy a debt-free lifestyle. I would rather invest in credit card debt that is costing me 13 percent interest every month then save and earn 3 percent in a savings account, or 8 percent in a CD or bond. Your first priority should be eliminating debts before you save.

I want you to think about any hobbies or talents that you may have that can earn you money. Whether it be arts and crafts or music, something that interests you and things you are good at can be an excellent way to earn more income. Although there are many ways to earn extra money, using your talents can open up many more doors and opportunities for you in life. I always walk my neighbors dog and cared for their houses and lawns when they are away. There are other ways to make extra money including yard sales and selling items you no longer need on ebay. Not only can you sell old things and make money, but you can clean your house at the same time.

There are so many ways to earn extra money. Your local newspaper may need delivery carriers. This could potentially lead to putting a few hundred extra dollars in your pocket every month. Babysitting, mowing lawns, and other chores that people don't want to do can all be ways to earn extra money. They may not be enjoyable, but they can pay the bills. Did you know that one of the fastest growing and most lucrative businesses growing today is pet waste removal.

Many people including myself have found ways to make money on the internet. I know that their seems to be many opportunities that promise you fast riches, but be very cautious before investing your money because there are so many scams out there. Please check the company first with the Better Business Bureau or make sure they have been validated by an online authority such as I-Cop or truste.org. You have to make sure that they are reputable and not a scam. The only way to get rich quick is to win the lottery or inherit a fortune, both of which are extremely high odds for the average person. Most of the offers you will find online are scams or ponzi schemes. Out of all the ways to make extra money, building an internet business, although a slow process can be the most profitable and earn you residual income for years to come.
