If you really wanted to make the list even more exhaustive, you could also discuss the various biological money-making methods (e.g., sperm donation, egg donation, etc.) and/or go into the more technical (e.g., hosting websites on one’s own server, building computers for others, etc.). Also, you could potentially explore those well-known money-making ventures, such as trading on the stock market, which are seemingly difficult to enter into by their apparent complexity by listing various online instructional tools which assist novices looking to get involved in them (e.g., Investopedia’s online simulator to prepare for buying/selling stocks). Sometimes those methods of making money which appear to be the most difficult are, in fact, relatively simple once you understand the underlying conceptual framework – many people just don’t realize this.
I can point out to them the fact that I didn't have money, time or had the same limitations as them when I wanted to be successful at a younger age… but the difference between me and them is that I didn't let those excuses get in the way. I found a way to make it happen. I always believed that “Resourceful people find the resources”. I was willing to work extra hours at my job or find ways to come up with the cash to invest in myself. I was willing to work late and on weekends. I was willing to bust my ass and be resourceful.
Not only will this multiply the money you’re bringing in in a serious way, but it protects you against any sudden changes in the market or in your business. Remember that old saying about putting all your eggs in one basket? A few hours a week committed to just one or two of the following opportunities will put you in a much stronger position to be financially safe and independent.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Most of the software and apps you use on a regular basis are made by massive companies or established development studios. Well, yes. But many successful apps, particularly those in the Apple and Google stores, are created and marketed by individuals and small businesses. In fact, independent developers made $20 billion in the App Store in 2016 alone.
The first follows the startup path we outlined above: You have a disruptive idea for an app or piece of software, you validate the idea with real customers, and then raise money to hire developers or a development studio to build, launch, and scale your software. If you’ve done everything right, your software will be accepted to the Apple and Google Stores and you’ll make money every time someone downloads it or pays for a premium feature.
That's a trip wire, it's like something really cheap and affordable, like you know how Mcdonalds has those deals on certain days like, come in here, we'll give you a Big Mac for 99 cents, I haven't been to Mcdonalds in ages but, they must be running offers, or a lot of Mexican fast food places do Taco Tuesdays, and they're so affordable when it comes to tacos, but you do this, what you'll find is people buy.
Software is important, but not imperative. You can still use them, but the days of Excel spreadsheets are over. Good software automates almost every aspect of your business. I’m an unabashed fan of Trainerize (and have since become an advisor). If you want to give the program a try, use this link and you’ll also get a free Ebook from me on getting your first few clients.
Holly told me she started writing content in 2011. At the time, she still worked a full-time job but created content online part-time to supplement her income. Over time, she was able to double and triple her rates until she could quit her full-time job to write. These days, she makes bank as a freelance writer and teaches others to do the same via her online course, Earn More Writing.
–>It takes awhile to produce tons of income off of these products. Unless you are an amazing marketer (in which case, BRAVO!), it’ll take a while for you to build up an interest list or buyers group to purchase these products. And if they are at a low cost, say $30-$50, you’ll need to sell plenty of them to pay your mortgage. So, it’ll be a bit before you recoup your investment of time, and this will probably not be your prime source of income in the beginning.
