    Picking the Right Affiliate For You

    Affiliate marketing, is it for you and how do you pick the right product to promote? If you have a web site or an e-mail list, one way to make extra income and our favorite type, passive income, is sign up to become an affiliate for a company, entrepreneur etc. It sounds easy, looks easy, and yes, it is, but the skill is in picking the right one. Here are three tips to help you decide which ones might be the best match for you- Don’t Go With the Big Bucks Some companies pay their affiliates lots of money while others offer just a dollar or less. Instinct tells us…

    March Preview-PLR Sale

    March already, spring (or maybe for you, fall), is around the corner. A new feature here at BSG is to give you a preview of things I have planned each month. We’ll be focusing on lots of topics that were covered in the Money Mindset Makeover Challenge including running a business and ways to make extra income. I’m hoping to post something at least four times a week but I’m currently working on putting together new classes so some weeks that might be reduced to three. One of the classes is an expanded version of the money challenge so stay tuned. This month I’m also taking part in April’s bundle…

    Money Mindset Makeover Challenge-Day 21-Passive Income

    My favorite income is passive income. Income that continues to travel into your bank account week after week, month after month, year after year without you doing anything. Well, I say anything, but that’s not quite the case. Passive income is about putting the work in first, sort of like upfront payment and then netting the rewards. It’s not often easy, in fact, it’s sometimes hard and you put in long hours. However, what keeps you going is the knowledge that once done, this piece of work is going to (hopefully), bring you money in the future. It could be a piece of artwork you sell on places like Etsy.…

    Money Mindset Makeover Challenge-Day 20-Multiple Streams of Income

    You’ve heard the saying about not putting all your eggs in one basket. Some people apply that to their investments which is a great idea. Diversifying where your hard earned money is placed. For some that’s stocks, bonds, real estate, and commodities. If one market goes down, chances are the others will be strong and protect a portion of your assets. Another thing this saying can be applied to is how you make money. If all your money is coming from your full time job and you lose it, then what happens? 2020 taught us that things can change and change quickly. Sometimes we have no control over the change…

    Money Mindset Makeover Challenge-Day 18-More Side Gigs

    Do you have some expertise or like to do research? While the three sites I’m giving you links to won’t earn you passive income, I think they’re still worth checking out. The first one is how to become a notary. If you’re wondering what that is they’re the people who witness signatures, documents, and someone’s identity and are used for everything from financial documents to closing on the purchase of property. Each state has its own requirements and regulations. Some require you take a test while others don’t. I’m not sure how much they make and I’m thinking that maybe notaries set their own prices.

    Money Mindset Makeover Challenge-Day 17-Apps

    Have you ever thought about creating an app? Today, I thought we’d focus on something that lots of people over look in their search for side gigs and ways to make money, and that’s creating an app. I’ve heard about people who do just that and make lots of money. Once it’s made it’s also passive income. Like everything else, the key is to come up with an app for something just about everyone will need or want. The one thing that’s prevented me from creating one is I’m not that tech savvy and to make an app you need to know how to code. I do know a few…

    Money Mindset Makeover Challenge-Day 16-Five Platforms for Potential Side Gigs

    We’re in the home stretch for our February Money Mindset Makeover. How are you doing? So far we’ve looked at net worth, money that flows into our accounts each month, and money that goes out. We also figured out things that can be cut from our budgets and finally thought about putting our talents and skills to good use by starting a business or engaging in some side gigs. This week, it’s all about resources to help you decide on the perfect side gig. And remember that a side gig or a bunch of side gigs might eventually turn into a business, whether it be part or full time. Today,…

    Money Mindset Makeover Challenge-Day 6-What’s Your Passion?

    The first week of the challenge is almost over. So far we’ve looked at net worth, assets and liabilities, what money comes in and what money goes out each month. Yesterday, we talked about looking at the goods and services on the minus side of the equation but today we’re going to look at the other side of the coin. Ways you can make that amount larger than your outgoing expenditure. Cutting expenses is one way to do it but we all get to the point where we’ve cut back as much as we can so that’s where trying to make more money to increase that plus side comes into…
