Creative Ways to Earn Extra Money

Be a "Virtual Assistant"


One mom pointed out that many small businesses are always looking for help with administrative tasks, such as bookkeeping, posting ads, and writing articles. Since these jobs can be done online, businesses frequently hire part-time employees to work from home.

Other ideas include blogging and freelance writing. Instead of set hours, these jobs usually have deadlines, allowing you to work on your own time.

Be aware that some of these jobs may require training or a college degree. Also, be wary of any emails you receive promoting work-from-home jobs that ask for money upfront. These are often a scam.
