If you’re in debt, then I would definitely read Dave Ramsey’s book The Total Money Makeover which you can check out here. He’s helped MILLIONS of people climb their way out of debt and have financial peace and security. So DEFINITELY check him out!

Also! He has another great book called the Legacy Journey which is a great read. Check it out here!

Join Lifepoints

Sign up with LifePoints and they’ll pay you for just filling out surveys. You can get paid up to $5 per survey and it’s a simple way to make money online.

Sell Online

Instead of spending money on online shopping, try selling things on online platforms like Amazon FBA. Dropshipping is a great way to make money from home so I would definitely start researching!

There are even some people who make $100k+ a month from platforms like Amazon FBA.

Freelance Writing

You can be your own boss, take on whatever projects you want, and write for bloggers and companies. So if you love writing, then this is the way to go.

A good place to start might be Upwork. Just make sure that you take the time to fill out your profile and share your accomplishments. It looks good for a lot of potential clients.

Become a Reviewer

All you need to do is review some websites and apps and cash out. It requires very little effort. I’ve done this before, and a good option might Usertesting.


Create your own blog and start making incredible money from your own website.

It’s what I do full-time and it’s what makes me over $100k+ a year…WITH NO COLLEGE DEGREE (the post I linked to is an old one from 2016, but it’s updated and very helpful!)

So definitely check this option out. And if you’re curious, I have more info about it here! 🙂


You can start teaching anyone who could benefit from your knowledge. So for instance, if you’re good with English, then there are online teaching portals for Chinese students who want to learn English.
