Ways to Earn $1 a Day

Did you know that if you earn about $10 a day, you’ll earn around $3650 in a year? But if you can earn $100 a day, then you’re earning over $36,000 a year! That’s nothing to scoff over now, is it? Since I am wanting to be able to stay at home and earn money, I thought I might write a few posts about it here on the blog as a way to help motivate myself to get started and put the gears in motion. I would personally be ecstatic to earn $36,000 a year from the comfort from home, but right now that seems like a very lofty and highly out of reach goal for me to even try to pursue. I just wouldn’t even know where to start!

I’ve found that if I think about making money in terms of much smaller and easier to reach goals, then I am better able to see the light at the end of the tunnel! So let’s start by thinking of earning just one dollar a day, what would be a few ways to earn just $1 a day from home? Once I can earn $1 a day, then I should be able to make $5… $10…$25 and so on, and then reaching the goal of earning $100 a day doesn’t seem quite so impossible!
