Looking For A Quick Way To Make A Few Bucks?

Just found this site online!

It seems that Paypal has a site where people offer money for "doing stuff"! One example is someone offering $20 to clean their room!

Paypal calls it "doing stuff for money".

How it works is that you enter your name, the person's name who you are making the offer to, how much you are offering and what it is that you want done.

So far I haven't found any "open" invitations - meaning you have to specifically enter in someone's email address instead of making your paypal offer open to everyone.

Logo Design Contest?

While doing a little surfing online I found a link to a message forum where someone is offering to pay $20 via Paypal for a logo design! (Personally I wouldn't enter it myself because I think that this is being treated cheaply) However even though its something I wouldn't enter doesn't mean that someone else might not be interested in applying.

Keep in mind that this logo design contest is but just 1 day old so that means that you still have some time because a winning logo hasn't been selected yet.

Oh and there is one other thing I should mention and that is since this is on a message forum you are going to have to join the form (its free) before you can post a message!

A "Hobby" Pays Off!

Here is an example of someone who started their own busineess:

One woman knew that her ad-agency job wasn’t safe. Clients weren’t renewing their contracts, no new business was coming in, and her workload as a public-relations officer was light. Plus, she was low on the totem pole, since she’d only been there for a year. When the ax finally fell in mid-December, she regretted not starting her job search earlier. Days turned into weeks as she tried to get an interview.

And then an unexpected opportunity fell into her lap. She got a bunch of inquiries about a sideline she dabbled in occasionally: photography.
When I got laid off, I didn’t really expect to start my photography business full time,” says the 28-year-old who studied photography at a University in San Francisco. But when she got the inquiries, “a light went off when this happened. This was it. This was what I’m going to do. Ever since then, I’ve been working nonstop.”|

Her first step was to revamp a Web site she had set up, to make it more professional. She also had to make some big adjustments to her own style. For one thing, she learned to stop being passive with clients. At first, when people asked about a job, she would say, “Just let me know when you’d like to do this.” But they often wouldn’t call back. Now she says, “When do you want to do this? How about Sunday?”

She also had to get used to the lack of structure or accountability that came along with striking out on her own. “If I want, I can roll out of bed and work in my PJs till noon, but I think it’s important to create a schedule that keeps you on target,” she says. “Otherwise, you’ll waste an entire day running errands, or working in front of your computer till evening with rollers in your hair.

Then there’s marketing. She had to build a reputation in an area with tons of photographers. So, she hired a specialist to help her make her Web site more appealing to search engines. She says the move doubled her Web traffic to more than 3,000 unique visitors monthly.

Although her business is turning a tiny profit, she says she’s always worried about the future. “Are the calls going to keep coming in, or is this it?” she asks. “It’s kind of unnerving to not know.

Paid Surveys - Are They Worth It?

I have been seeing a lot about these paid survey sites for a while now but personally haven't taken part in them until now!

Since this is relatively new to me I definitely want to find out more about it. I think what got me more interested was that someone posted that they made $6,000 just by taking paid surveys!

If this is a legitimate way that one can work from home I am all for it! But I also know that you have to be careful out there because some of these survey sites may just be scams!

So as I investigate this further I will let you know more about it.


I have decided to start an entirely new blog about this subject

Paid Surveys - A Newbie!
