When I was invited to join Project Payday, I admit, I was skeptical. After all, I have seen all the ads, read all of the hype and got sucked in to an MLM or two in my days --and I am not a fan of MLM's by the way. Yet, I figured that since this website was free to sign up for, I would give it the good old "college try".
I’m not just going to write a blog telling you how much I love Cash Crate or how much money I earn using it –anyone can do that. I’m going to give you a realistic idea of what you can make, every day, in about an hour of your time, and I’m going to do it step-by-step.
Cash back rewards programs. If the words, "cash back" are attached to it, chances are, I know all about it. I am a member of several cash back online portals, that pay me five to eight percent cash back on every purchase I make. In addition to that, I pay my monthly bills with a cash back credit card and pay that credit card off each month with a cash back debit card, earning me four more percent.
Annual unexpected windfall: $2,640
In-store rewards programs. Recently, when my older dog required a specific medication, my Pet Perks card (at Pet Smart) saved me $8 a month. When I purchase everyday beauty items at CVS or Drugstore.com, I earn bonus dollars, saving me $15 a month or more. There are others, but those are just two examples of how I use merchant rewards programs to increase my pool of unexpected money.
Annual savings from vendor rewards: < $300
Paid to click programs. You might turn up your nose at any "internet income" opportunity. I know I used to. However, I found a few pay to click sites that actually pay, and that don't require an investment. I put seven of these different websites on my daily task list, and click ads while I am surfing my Facebook feed in the morning. It takes all of about 10 minutes to do, and I earn $5 to $8 a day doing it.
Annual cyber payday: < $2,900
Paid to read email programs. I earn $0.50 a day, or more, simply by clicking on a few email links. It might not sound like much, but it adds up.
Annual email payday: < $150
Affiliate marketing. When I find a website I love or a deal that is unbeatable, I share it. I share the link on Facebook, Twitter and even on my blogs. However, my shares don't always come free. For instance, I earn $5 for each person I refer to one of my rebates portal websites when they signs up for a free account. I also earn bonuses from that website and others. Being paid to share a link online (if you ask me) is not too shabby and it's a great extra source of income.
Annual sharing income: < $4,300
If you have been keeping up, it's clear that my annual "pennies from heaven" ante up to a little over $10,000 year; a lot more than I have found in fresh-from-the-dryer jean pockets in my lifetime.

|Cash Parking Means $$$|
I could talk to you until I’m blue in the face about how much I believe in having multiple streams of income. Often I am asked about mine. Well, if you want to know all my secrets, you’ll have to wait for the E-book. But, until then, I have a tidbit of knowledge I’m going to drop on you.
Domain reselling and Cash Parking
Wait. Stay with me. I can see that glazed look in your eyes already. You are already technolgied out.
It’s really easy. Here’s an example.
I get my free Godaddy account and decide I want to dabble in domain reselling. I purchase righteousideas.com for $9.99 a year and then buy the .net .biz and .me variations for an additional $5. I spend a grand total of $14.99.
On these domains, I click a button that says I allow Godaddy to park ads on that page for free –because I’m not going to do anything with it. Now, whenever someone goes to righteousideas.com, they see adds. When they click on any one of those ads, I get paid. If I pick a domain name that is likely to get a lot of traffic, I make back my $14.99 in a matter of a few days. The rest is profit.
From here, I wait. I put righteousideas.com up for sale in the Godaddy auction house and in a few other auction houses across the web. My starting price is $50. A couple of people get in a bidding war and drive the price up to $100. Now, I made my profit back and then some.
Of course, you have to use common sense. Not every domain is going to be hot, and you do have to have a fair amount of patience for some domain names to sell, but if you are smart, you start buying domain names in bulk –maybe even a few off the auction house. Then, you wait for the hungry young entrepreneur to come to you with their idea. You hold the cards…well, the domain names anyway.
This is a great, powerful, inventory free way to make some extra cash. I love it and it takes a minimal amount of effort –I put in maybe 2 hours per week and net a few hundred dollars a month.
Here’s the thing: You don’t have to be tech savvy (well, really tech savvy to do it). Go daddy makes it easy. Sign up for a free Godaddy account and they walk you through the steps of domain name reselling and cash parking without a lot of tech talk. Best thing is, you don’t need to invest in it. Just go read more about it and see if it’s for you. Then, let me know how you fare.

It isn't the lines that turn me off. It isn't the scads of people with restless leg syndrome and Starbucks breath. I just don't believe in buying new tech. In fact, I will never buy new tech because I stand for two things: the bottom dollar and the bottom line.

|Are you in debt?|
People are secretive about money. In my experience, people are more secretive about their cash blow than they are their sex lives. While I don’t quite understand the stigmata, and while I don’t expect you to confess to me about either, I do want to tell you about something I believe in: paying off debt.
I believe in paying off debt because I was in debt up to my eyeballs, and the anxiety and stress that went along with that is no way to live. Now, my one and only debt is my mortgage. My “disposable income” goes into a series of piggy banks (investments) and I am more “zen” than I ever have been.
The “Total Money Makeover” was my solution. I picked the plan, I stuck with it and now I can look you in the eyeball (almost) debt free. However, I realize that not all folks have the self-discipline it takes to stick with the debt snowball. Sure, you start with great intentions, but great intentions aren’t going to change your life. For you, I’d recommend a solution like the Debt Goal Program. This is a very powerful program that even gives you access to your very own free counselor –and you might need that.
Give it a click and let me know what you think! Make 2012 the year you commit to really getting out of debt. You can do it. I believe in you.
