Start a Money Making Blog
Want to make money blogging like me? Blogging is one of the most affordable ways to start a business at home whether part or full time.
If blogging seems like something you would be interested in, I HIGHLY recommend Elite Blog Academy, it’s only open once a year but you can get on the waiting list now. I started my blog back in 2009 but I didn’t turn it into a business until after discovered Elite Blog Academy.
If you are on a strict budget or want to get started now while you wait for Elite Blog Academy to open, I suggest you start with Suzi Whitford’s Blog by Number Course.
Suzi is AMAZING! Plus her course was just recently updated and is super affordable!
What I like about Blog By Number is it takes you from step one of creating and designing your blog all the way to monetizing your blog and more and Suzi is awesome and gives so much value to her students in the course and on her Facebook Lives.

Become a Scopist
What on earth is a Scopist?
A Scopist edits transcripts for court reporters. Court reporters write or “take down” proceedings using steno writers. They import their steno notes into computer-aided transcription software that translates the steno into English.
Court reporters then hire scopists to help them save time in the editing process so that they can make more money themselves.
Become a Mystery Shopper
Yes, they are real!
A mystery shopper is a person who visits an establishment (typically a retail store, bank, restaurant or other such places where the public does business) for the purpose of observing and measuring customer service, product quality and the environment of the establishment in general.
Shoppers are given details, by the mystery shopping company responsible for the shopping program, about expectations for making specific observations during their visits to or interactions with the establishment (some shops are online and/or via telephone) and the shoppers complete reports, often using an online form, after leaving the establishment.
Shoppers serve as the eyes and ears for those clients as part of their efforts to enhance the quality of the customer experience.
