You might want to try SurveySavvy.com They pay usually $1 or more per survey completed but they have been around for years and I’ve been paid twice (by check) by them. It’s free to join and there is an option for U.S. residents to earn even more money. Here is the link: (Link removed by the editor – referral links not allowed in the comments)
Don’t get me wrong, it was very hard. There were many times where I just wanted to give up. But somehow I went through with it, and little by little I started earning. A few cents a day, went to a few dollars a day, then to $20-$30, then $100-$150, and so on.
For Andrew, I got a high level guest post and asked if I could include him in it (they had over 200,000 subscribers) We ended up chatting on the phone and I asked him to come on my show then. (instead of emailing him over and over, give first, then ask!)
I invested $3,000 to get help writing my first book proposal from a highly successful writer. That $3,000 got me maybe 4 or 5 hours of his time. But in those 4 or 5 hours, he taught me what I needed to know to create an amazing book proposal. He provided me resources that dramatically enhanced and sped up my process. With his help, I was able to get a literary agent and eventually a multi six figure book contract.
opening to climb out, you need patience and a positive attitude to get out. There is always an answer and its up to you to decide whether the solution is in your favor or not. When you drop your apple in dirt you can eat it still if you wash it or let it grow, to receive more fruit. So…sometimes to lose you must have faith to gain. Its like a joke I was told – There was a kid playing in a pile of horse manure laughing and throwing it over his shoulder with excitement. A passerby perplexed by this boys happiness in it, asked “why are you so happy in it?” the boy replied “A horse did this and I’m going to find it and keep it” How positive can one be..in shit but happy to find something from it!
Just like at any other job, the more work you do, and the better your quality, the more opportunities you’ll have to make money. payouts are often small, and your payment is received in Amazon credit, but Mturk is a great place to make mindless money while veg’ing on the couch watching TV.
An important lesson learned from the book “The Millionaire Next Door” is the secret of how many Americans become millionaires. These are every day people like you and me. Yes, they might have nice home and cars and take nice vacations, but they are not extravagant. They don’t have the largest house on the block and don’t drive the fanciest cars. Cars and houses are not status symbols to these millionaires next door.
Side gigs can benefit retirees, too. The extra income will allow your savings to grow and help you postpone taking Social Security. Look for opportunities at www.retirementjobs.com, which lists jobs in fields such as tax preparation and caregiving; www.encore.org, which focuses on jobs in the nonprofit sector; and www.coolworks.com, which lists seasonal jobs in national parks and other outdoor settings.
Start an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Available from financial institutions, IRAs are customized financial plans, set up to save for the future. To save a billion dollars, start saving as soon as possible. Interest accrues on savings.
You can earn anything from 10p to £20 per item, and the earnings can really add up if you have a large collection. Whilst you’re at it, see if your parents have any ‘clutter’ they’d be happy to see the back of.
Some people argue that you can make money without a lot of traffic and while that is true in some circumstances, you will generally need a lot of website traffic to start earning from a blog and that takes a while. Once you’ve reached that point, here are the primary ways to monetize your blog and start earning:
MOBE is a bad one for sure. My Millionaire Mentor is typical of a MOBE affiliate website. I agree, part of the psychology they are using is to hook a victim with a small entrance fee. Then get the professional telemarketers to work on the victim until they squeeze as much cash out of them as they can. I can only imagine the countless lives ruined by MOBE and the likes of My Millionaire Mentor.
In the “My Millionaire Mentor” video I saw, there is an endless stream of luxury cars, mansions, yachts, planes, beautiful women, diamonds, cash, and exotic vacations. It is as if Mr. Matthews is rubbing our nose in all the trappings of wealth. He’s trying to make us feel greedy.
Funny as it sounds, one of the practical ways to make a million dollars in one year from the scratch is to play the lottery. Although, you might not have it under your control to know exactly when you are going to hit your fist million US dollars from playing lottery, but the truth remains that if you are lucky enough, you are likely going to make more than a million US dollars in one year from playing the lottery. Besides loads of people that became millionaires overnight are people who won it big playing the lottery.
Where Indeed excels at finding job postings across the web and acting as a search crawler for employment, maybe a full-fledged career is too big of a commitment at this point in your life. Elance is a site to find freelance work of all types. I’ve used it for quick writing, editing, copywriting, resume building, and other odd jobs and temp gigs. The experience has been great.

I read that article, too. As much as I like to be an optimist, I must admit that I don’t think I’ll ever be a millionaire. I think I can do better with my finances and build a more secure future. But, I don’t think I’ll have a million or more unless I get really lucky and hit the lotter!
Annette, I am glad you find this list helpful. And that’s what it’s all about; you are right, you won’t make a living with most of these options (although with a few, like blogging, you indeed can), but you will make some extra cash in your spare time.
