Raising Dollars

I found a reputable, supposedly, Work-from-Home site and I checked it out. There were numerous suggestions for taking surveys and getting paid, and trying offers for pay. I looked into a couple of them and spent most of my day off yesterday filling out forms and opting to try things for free or a tiny amount of money. After the entire day, I think I made eight dollars. It seems there is no easy way to make money. Unfortunately, in the economy of today, there is no harder way either. I continue to look for jobs and I don't intend to give up until I find something that pays better than my current job, which pays barely more than my survey-taking fiasco yesterday. I think part of the secret to success is to just keep moving forward even when things seem pretty hopeless. It takes more persistence than talent, right. That's my theory and for now I'm sticking with it.


  1. Good luck with your search and I really feel for you. I know there are places that have focus groups and sometimes you can make $75-$125 for an hour or two of your time. I would just Google focus groups in your area and sign-up for their lists. It's one quick way to make some extra cash. I just thought I'd pass it along.

  2. Thanks, Jules. I appreciate the tip.
