Ways to Make Money

For our purposes on this blog, we will talk about making money in four main ways: starting a business, getting a work-from-home job, creating a side hustle and making some extra cash. These should cover just about every way that you can make money from home and help you get the information you need.

Start a Business

When you start a business it can be online or just something you do from home, like baking cakes. Either way, the main criteria that are involved is that you control every aspect of the process from getting customers to creating the product. That doesn't mean that you can't hire people to help you, just that you are the boss.

Work From Home Jobs

Work from home jobs are those that you can do remotely or on a freelance basis, but where you have a boss or work for a company on their terms. In these scenarios, you have less responsibility than running a business of your own, and you often have less time freedom because you answer to someone else.

Side Hustles

Side hustles are part-time (or full-time) ways to make money that don't encompass starting a business or working for employers. These kinds of make-money opportunities require you to do some kind of sales or service but don't take as much time or money commitment as starting your own business.

Extra Cash

Extra cash opportunities are things that anyone can do to make extra money on a one-time or recurring basis that requires no commitment, overhead or money.

Make Money Online

Making money online means that you have a business that is run completely online. You offer services or products, communicate with customers or clients and run your business, job, side hustle or cash opportunity from your computer.

Make Money From Home

Making money from home is much the same as making money online but these opportunities give you a chance to step away from the computer.
