When you love something—be it anything from corgis and yoga to travel and Mexican food—you're going to want to share it with others. And while your friends and family won't always have the same enthusiasm for learning Spanish, traveling with pets, or buying a new home overseas, there are thousands of people online who do...and you can make money talking to them about the things you love.
If you're a football fan, you might be familiar with the term "free agent." A free agent is any player who isn't contracted to a team and is free to play with anyone. But you can also think of someone who has zero commitments to an employer as a free agent.
If you're looking for the easiest way to fund your travels and flesh out your nest egg, then this kitchen-table income could be perfect for you. All you need is a laptop and an internet connection. And the real beauty is how little of your time it takes up.
Would you be interested in investing $199 to make $115,000? That's what Jeff and Mandy Rose made last year. To most people they may seem like an ordinary couple...
Have you seen the online video where Jimmy Kimmel tells parents to pretend their child’s Halloween candy is all gone while recording the child’s reaction? Or how about the one where Walter White from Breaking Bad is a pharmacist in an Esurance commercial…the one where the Budweiser Clydesdales save a puppy…the “Bad Lip Reading” spoofs of the presidential debates and the NFL…?
Start a blog this week—take a couple of days to really set it up right—and it could earn you a full-time income from anywhere in the world you want to be. Sound far-fetched? I'm not surprised. After all, as recently as the year 2000, "blog" wasn't even a word. But fast forward to today and Forbes cites a woman receiving $5,000 to blog about an iPhone application for seven days...another who earns twice as much as her husband's annual salary...and another taking all-expenses-paid vacations to Hawaii, Aruba, and Florida.
Today, starting a business on a shoestring from the kitchen table is much easier than it was 30 years ago (and even as little as five years ago). If you're looking for a way to make a healthy side income or completely replace your current income stream, I can't imagine anything that carries such low risk and such little investment as an online business. And, once you get up and running, you can even manage things from your smartphone without being tied to the office—or kitchen table—at all.
If you're looking for the easiest way to...Fund your travels... Flesh out your nest egg... Pay for the overseas retirement you truly deserve... Then, I have the solution for you that doesn't involve years of business building or training. I'm talking about starting your own online business...buying overseas from sellers in other parts of the world and selling for a profit. All you need is your computer and the time it takes to locate and buy a pair of socks on Amazon. Thanks to new megasites that connect buyers with sellers around the world, this is very easy and it's a great way to make extra money from home...no matter where in the world your new home may be.
When most people think of the fortune you can make importing, their mind goes to huge cargo ships docked in major ports...stacked sky-high with crates...and enormous cranes moving them from the ship to the dock. But, when I think of buying and selling online, I picture yoga mats, golf balls, and snorkeling gear.
When I tell people I import products from overseas and sell them back in the States for a profit, they immediately think one of two things...1. If they're well-traveled, they think I'm going to places like Mexico and Ecuador and bringing back suitcases full of leather goods, handmade dolls, jewelry, and handicrafts.
