10 Websites That Help You Earn Extra Money

Views

1.7K

We are all searching for new and innovative ways to make extra money. I have spoken many times about the importance of not relying on one stream of income. I worry greatly about families that still rely on one income. If that income goes away in the form of being laid off, then your life will be severely altered. If you were able to create one or two other streams of income, then losing your day job would not be quite as big of a hit.

Wisebread.com has a great list of websites you probably never heard of that could help you save and earn extra money

I had never heard of Zilok.com, the site that lets you rent out your stuff for cash. I checked it out, and there wasn’t much being rented in my area, but I don’t think the buzz about this site has spread yet. If you are worried about liability, most homeowner’s policies will cover your liability for loaning your stuff out to others. If you find yourself renting out your stuff frequently, consider buying an umbrella liability policy. The other site that caught my attention was Cross Loop. I always find myself helping people with their computer problems. I am thinking about creating an account and possibly doing PC repair and help desk support as an extra source of income. If you are a computer whiz as a hobby, you should consider taking advantage of this website as well.

Think outside the box, and don’t rely solely on your paycheck to provide for you.
