Have you ever wondered how people can live so lavishly and not seem to work anywhere in particular? Have you ever wished that you could be your own boss? If so, then this article will give you ideas that you may be able to put to use in your own life to give you money and free time whenever you want it.
1. House sit
Yes you can make money house sitting. You save on your own rent and utility bills and get paid for looking after someone else’s house and grounds. You don’t have to take care of children or pets, but you do have to keep the house clean, water the plants and mow the lawn. There are many people who look for reputable house sitters when they want to go out of town. The fact that they have someone in the house means that they won’t have to worry about being burglarized while they are gone. In order to get the job, though, you will have to provide references and a police background check.

2. Complete surveys
Companies are always advertising for people to complete surveys about products and services. There are many such sites online where you can spend a few minutes completing the survey and receive goods or cash in return. Just be careful not to pay a fee to join any site because such legitimate job opportunities are free.
3. Host a student from another country
Students from all over the world come to the US each year to study in a college or university. They are part of a home stay program and as the host of a student you will be paid a monthly wage – usually about $500 per month.
4. Provide your sperm or eggs
With the large number of people who are unable to conceive and want a child of their own, you can provide them with an essential service by taking a few minutes to donate your sperm or eggs. Sperm donation is painless, which is why it doesn’t pay as highly as egg donation.
5. Start writing for online sites
If you have a knack for crafting pieces of writing you can earn a full-time living as a freelance writer. With the numerous sites posting projects it is not hard to get started in this line or work and choose your own schedule. There are also sites such as Helium and Squidoo where you can basically write articles on any topic of your choosing. Squidoo offers the chance to dabble in affiliate marketing where you can earn a commission on Amazon and eBay sales.
