An inspiring and creative blog to help you is Out And Beyond

🌻 Blogger 🌻

Start your own blog and earn money that makes part-time hours become your full-time income. Blog for fun or blog for funds.

I have found my favorite place, Wix, and you can start for $0 dollars. Everything is all in one place. You can upgrade for as little as $11/mo or pay by the year at $9/mo. The blog builder is very user-friendly and makes for little stress. Choose from many designs.

You may like the professional look of WordPress. I have insane difficulty figuring that out even with all of the training to find. If it's a no-brainer for you, I'd start with BlueHost (affil. link) for as little as $2.75/mo. for your 1st year for $36 total startup.

Of course, more money can easily be spent but is not completely necessary. I have tips and tricks to getting what you need with little or no money.

Upgrade now or later.

Referral/ Affiliate Marketer

If you own your own blog or website, you can earn money from referring others in the work from home employment ideas and opportunities realm as well as other creative ways. 💫 You will need to have traffic to your site before you may be approved.

By offering links on my current blog and social media pages, I am able to earn money that helps with the overhead costs of running my businesses. You can earn by the click as well as from purchases made through your links. It’s nice to add that you are receiving the financial help from your referrals to help with keeping you up and running.

Retail Marketer - Health & Beauty products, etc. (affil. link)

My cousin has found this company that sells clean quality and natural ingredient products. Health and wellness & beauty skin care products.

See if you would be interested in trying some of the products first or if you would want to be on her team and sell some of the products for extra income to travel or shop or even groceries.

They are booming and growing fast and have ladies all over that also tried the products out first and loved the results. Now they sell the products at their boutiques. Try products or pay one-time fee of $29.95 to sell.
