Make Your Way to Financial Freedom at Any Age

Updated on June 26, 2011

In my family, I have always been different. I have never been as outgoing as many of them. My quietness has always made me stand out more than I wanted.

Along with that I have an identical twin sister who has the same personality as me so we stick out together. It was expected that everyone would go to college and finish college.

That is fine but I have other dreams and aspirations that a college degree can’t give me.

I am the type of person who challenges tradition and I think outside the box.

This has lead me to wonder whether or not I really need to have a traditional 9 to 5 job working trading my time for money.

I wondered if there was any other way to earn income rather than going to school for so many years to earn a degree and find a job. I often wondered is college for me?

After searching the internet, I found that the best thing for me was to work from home to earn an income.

I love to be on the internet so I figured why not make a living helping people online?

I no longer wonder should I go to college because I found out that I did not need to waste money going to college when it would not help me learn the skills I needed to work from home the way I wanted to.

After two years of learning on the internet I learned about many ways to make money online.

One of the most popular ways to make money online is by becoming an affiliate marketer.

As an affiliate, you refer your audience to services provided by various companies.

When they make a sale you earn a commission. You are the middleman so you don’t have to deal with the customers directly.

The key with being an affiliate is to pick a topic or niche you enjoy and build a content rich blog or website about it.

You can use services such as Clickbank.com or AssociatePrograms.com to find programs to market.

When becoming an affiliate you would need to learn how rank high in search engines with SEO (search engine optimization) and get traffic to you website or blog.

There is no need to go to college for that.

Another way to make money online is by selling your own goods.

This method is not as easy as becoming an affiliate marketer because you have to be in charge of everything from providing to goods to delivering the goods.

This may be a good option for those who enjoy running the show. By selling your own E-goods you control how much money you make.

Many people who sell their own goods online also choose to sell E-Books.

This is easy because you don’t have to worry about shipping and handling.

Customers are able to receive their product right away after they purchase.

You also will never have to worry about running out of inventory because it is digital.

Another great way to make money online is by selling your services.

If you enjoy writing articles like me you can sell your service through Elance.com. On Elance.com you can also sell your services as a web designer or a consultant.

Use your skills and hobbies to make money!

Through Elance.com they will connect you with people who need your services.You can even become a guru and write articles for a blog on a topic you passionate about and make money that way.

These ways of making money online are easy for anyone to put to use, whether you are a college student, a stay at home mom, or someone who just needs an extra source of income.

There are so many opportunities out there for people who want to make money online!

If you really want to make money online you have to realize that it is NOT easy, especially for college students like me.

If it were easy everyone would be doing it. You have to make up your mind that you are going to put in the hard work and your hard work WILL pay off!
