The truth is, everyone is highly dependent on other people to do what they do. But it takes wisdom and humility to openly acknowledge that dependence. Rather than seeing it as a weakness, realize that it’s a strength.

Had I been overly concerned about the $3,000, I’m confident that to this day, I’d still not have written a book proposal. At the very most, I’d have written a terrible one. I would not have been as motivated or invested, so I would have been far more likely to procrastinate needed action.

With gift cards I can get gifts for occasions like Birthdays. Money can help me to have a treat for myself like going out for coffee or a drink where my limited income doesn’t leave me much left over after living expenses to get out and socialize.
eBay – Of course you can’t read an article about making money online that doesn’t mention eBay. You can start an eBay store and get serious about it or you can just sell some stuff to declutter your home. Either way, I’ve made my fair share from selling on eBay and it’s still a popular way to earn money. If you decide to start an actual eBay store, you’ll want to find a drop-ship business like Doba that will store and ship items straight to your customers so you don’t have to deal with an inventory.

The thing that’s impressive about his rise to Instagram fame was his ability to see an opportunity and seize it. Two years ago Instagram was still rather new, having been only two years into being acquired from Facebook for $1 Billion in 2012. It’s only lately that Instagram has surpassed 500 million active users and become a major contributor to Facebook’s balance sheet. Making people really take notice of the social platform.
They haven’t covered all of my expenses yet, but we did increase this form of passive income significantly in the past year. I went from making a few dollars a month to now making a few hundred dollars a month in passive income from my blog, much of which is being invested.

We recommend Mobile Cash Mate for the fairest and highest payouts in most cases (they sent us a £203 cheque for an iPhone 5).
At the time, Cook was working full-time at an interior-design firm. With $800 investment, she started making salsa in her kitchen. Her first two customers were stores in the Capitol Market; as her business grew, she rented commercial kitchens in Charleston and nearby Huntington, W.Va. Her big break came in 2007, when she cold-called Whole Foods. After a store representative expressed interest in her product, she loaded up her Honda Civic with salsa and drove 360 miles to Hyattsville, Md. The meeting led to a contract for 10,000 pounds of salsa a week, which enabled Cook to quit her interior-design job and focus on her business. She expanded her product line to include several kinds of dips and salsas and landed contracts with Kroger and Walmart. In 2014, Cook sold her business to Garden Fresh Gourmet, a national salsa manufacturer. (Cook declined to disclose the terms of the deal, but at the time, she was bringing in revenues of more than $1 million a year.) In 2015, Campbell Soup bought Garden Fresh for $231 million.
