Make some extra cashSo, you're looking to make a little extra cash?

As a parent, any additional income you bring in for your family will definitely be put to good use. (College fund. Rainy day savings. New shoes for your toddler who outgrows hers like she's getting paid to do so.)

Since we're probably a touch old for lemonade stands, we had to look elsewhere. And guess what? Nowadays, with ubiquitous smartphones and laptops, the easiest ways to earn extra cash are accessible to everyone at the click of a button.

Good article, I’d like to add another way of making money online, and that is through get paid to click sites (PTC). It is easy to make money on these sites especially for beginners because all you have to do is click.

sites like neobux and Clixsense are the top PTC sites on the internet right now. The problem with these sites is that, it takes long time to make real money, you have to spend hours clicking ads all day.

I’ve found a way around that which makes use of the loophole on these sites to make a good living on the internet.


One thing I forgot to mention is that no matter what system you employ if you don’t work on a business you’ll create a job instead of a business (Michael Gerber)
