Are These for Real or Scams? - If you check into a money-making opportunity and are told you'll be sent a check, and you have to deposit it and then send some of the money to someone else, it's a scam. In fact, many of the offers you get in your email or see online are scams, or at least as close to illegal as they can get without putting someone in jail... Of course, some opportunites are for real, and some are only a fraud most of the time. Most of the time? Yes, that's not very encouraging, but that's what this article is here for -- to help you sort through some of the possibilities out there, the ones that make a person with healthy skepticism ask...

How to Make Money Freelance Writing - It used to be that the opportunities for freelance writing were relatively rare. There were only so many magazines that would pay for freelance work, and many writers to compete against. Then the internet came along, and there was suddenly an insatiable need for content to fill all of those websites and blogs. But then there were suddenly millions of new writers, including myself. The result has been that the rate writers get online is generally much lower than in print magazines. But the good news is that there are more ways to make money from writing than ever before, and you don’t have to be a professional writer to... Continue Reading Here: Freelance Writing

Why Have Multiple Streams of Income? - You can probably see the value of having many different streams of money flowing into your life, even if they only add up to what one big income source might bring in. Like a farmer who has more than one source of water for his crops, you are more secure if... Continue Reading Here: Multiple Streams of Income

Most states allow you to buy and sell a certain number of used cars annually without a dealer license, and you can turn a profit of $1,000 or more on each if you buy smart. From: 101 Weird Ways to Make Money

Why the Focus on Unusual Ways? - There's something appealing about making money in unique and ineteresting ways. It's fun to read about the strange things people do, but it is also fun to be involved in weird jobs, investments and businesses. I enjoyed my recent stint as an electric tram driver for a beach community in Florida. I liked the profits I made earlier in life investing in coins and cars. It was fun to make videos about backpacking a couple years ago (and they still generate a little bit of revenue for me on YouTube). Maybe you're more likely to make a living in conventional ways, but then again, the guy who made more than a million dollars selling the "Pet Rock" is probably happy he didn't start a coffee shop instead.
