If you are like me, you are probably tired of working full time for a company that lacks appreciation for what you do. You feel overwhelmed by the hours you have to put into something that you probably don’t enjoy doing, and your personal and social lives are diminishing into nothing.
The good news is that there are tons of options for you as an independent contractor or as a freelancer for you to capitalize on. Our society is swiftly growing towards this trend, and within the next several years freelancers will make up a good percentage of our working economy. Whether you are a writer, or an artist, or a musical composer, there is always somebody out there who needs your skill to complete a task for their company. And if you are good at sales, you can venture off into making money for yourself in your own time without working for anybody.
Just to give you some motivation, I am here to tell you that you CAN capitalize on these opportunities and you CAN make money doing this type of work. I DID make money last year, a substantial amount, applying my skills. I did it without help, without knowing somebody who could provide me with the right connections, and without paying money for any memberships or programs that guaranteed success.
— Selling items on eBay: I started off by accumulating some bank by selling some old items for around the house. I invested this money into other wholesale items and started selling brand new items and created a small business. I don’t list a lot of items, but my average profit for the year averaged $100-200 per month. Clearly, if I would spend more time listing items and having more items to sell, I could make this a full time job with a full time income. My #1 key for success has been to list items that I like and would pay money for online. If I like it and I would by it, there are thousands or more people on eBay who would do the same.
— Writing: I don’t post many articles on Associated Content, YET, but every time that somebody views one of my articles I earn a little bit. I have written many articles elsewhere and received compensation for those articles as well. If I would take advantage of the concept of writing news articles, I could increase my views and payouts substantially. I average between $10-25 per month writing regular articles.
— Posting videos on YouTube: Similar to my current writing strategy, I mainly stick to posting videos that are very generalized. I post videos from watching my cat play with cardboard to talking about my experience buying a home. If I would post videos of product reviews or current news events, my view counts would raise and my payouts would only get bigger. My average income from YouTube has been about $20 per quarter (4 months).
This article has been created for the purpose of letting you know that you can make money without having to keep your annoying full time job. These are tried and true methods that I have used myself, and currently am working on growing. If I can do it, you can do it! And there are tons of other opportunities out there for you if these methods aren’t quite up your alley. Assess your skills, and offer them up in exchange for money. I have faith in you! Have faith in yourself.
