More Time to Smell the Roses

#1 Writing Online

Would you like to have more time to smell the roses? I am here today to talk with you about several ways to generate multiple avenues of income, so you can have more time to devote to your family and your health. Did you know most millionaires have more that one business or jobs? Life is not just a two way street, it can be a six lane highway when we are talking about avenues of income! How about writing here for hub-pages, or creating a blog. The key for writers to succeed is to find your passion then research it and write about it. You will need to learn more about yourself to be able to choose wisely, then write about it!

  • Ask yourself what peaks my interest? Pets, people, health,wealth,communication or politics?
  • What do you like to do? Travel,cook,cruise,teach?

Start writing today! Set up a pay-pal account so you can start getting paid.

#2 Amazon Books

You can write about anything you want! Do you have a story to tell or a mystery lurking in your mind? You can also write a book for publishing companies. Let's say you are a so-so writer, you can even pay to have your work edited by a professional and then have it published! Do you want to write an autobiography? It really is just that simple. Even if you pay to have the book edited, you can still make thousands of dollars for the book in generated sales from Amazon. E-books are really popular and require less overhead costs, some companies will put the book together for you and charge a small book sale commission fee. I will add some links to publishing companies below that can help you get started.

Make a recipe book and sell it!

#3 MLM Companies and CBD

MLM Companies, MLM stands for Multilevel marketing Companies. Like Amway & The Pampered Chef. Currently the market for CBD oil is booming, it is now legal in 50 states. The market projections for CBD sales are 22 billion by 2022, this is still a very fresh marketing business to get into. You can sell these products right from your home and earn residual income. Tranont is one of the companies I currently work for, they have been awarded one Americas fastest growing companies in 2018. They offer health and wealth products and services. Recently, Tranont has a new CBD product that is fluid based of whole flower extraction, the ultimate way to get all of the properties of pain relief and healing without the THC. I believe it is the best in the world! In Europe other companies have something similar (not the same) and it sells for 350.00 EU a bottle. Tranont and their partner Suthe currently have a patented process in the US that makes this stuff like gold on the market! Right now the prices are still affordable going for 99.00 US a bottle that lasts a month. My team members are so supportive and you feel like family! These are very exciting times for the CBD industry.

#4 Work Camping

I learned about a new trend called work camping! A lot of people want to travel while they work, so they grab their RV and hit the road. The great thing is they are earning money wherever they are.

#5 U Tube Videos

  • Do you have sweet, funny or cute pets? Create a YouTube station designed just for pets, be sure to friend a lot of other big time pet video contributors, so they can talk with you about possibly sharing your content with them, too when they make compilations of pet videos as well. once you start making friends and posting on others videos they usually reciprocate and then you get a bigger fan base, once you get a lot of likes then you can start to apply to make earnings with advertising!

Other ideas for U tube advertising generating videos

  • Do you like Travel? Do travel video and hotel motel reviews, sometimes when you get a lot of views, then hotel and motels will partner with you and give you free stays.
  • Teaching videos, a lot of retired people are making teaching and training videos and how to videos.
  • Do you love the outdoors? Go hiking and take a video of the trek! A lot of people would like to hike or travel but cannot afford to so they like to watch videos, also friendly hiker buddies, want to see what they need to prep for when they do decide to go.
  • The newest popular YouTube videos are the drone videos of landscape and areas from the sky, some of the are so beautiful! It really makes me want to learn how to fly a drone and go out and take some videos of our beautiful state of Oregon!

The possibilities are endless!!

#6 Re-sale

Essentially you buy something popular and resell it for a higher price. You have to be a fashion trendy person and put together outfits to re-sale, but its really fun to go shopping and get some really col stuff and re-sell it for double or triple the price! My mom sometimes finds some great buys at book stores and re-sells the books online.

(Just be aware of your shipping costs so you don't loose money)

You can Re-sell on Ebay and Amazon

#7 Data Entry and Medical Transcription

Many companies are facing more rules and regulations about clients and especially care centers and hospitals. They need more hands on deck keeping track of patients and records. Data entry jobs are popping up more and more.

Also Medical transcribers are in demand as well, you have to go through some training for it and have some good computer equipment to get going.

I recommend worldwide dictation .com

Many companies hire customer service representatives that can work remotely from home. You will need to make a small investment for a good phone with multi-lines.

#8 Get Artsy and Crafty!

You can sell you arts and crafts at local craft shows and On-line, you can sell on e-bay Amazon and IPSY. My neighbor sells the cutest dolls on Ebay ( and now on Ipsy! I am sure there are even more websites Go Daddy will help you with creating you own website for accepting visa etc. but its just as easy to sign up for paypal and then create an account on Ebay and or Amazon, so you are not paying a monthly fee to sell, but you do have to pay a small fee for items you sell on commerce sites

#9 Prescription Delivery Service

I cannot count how many times I have been sick and would have loved to have someone deliver my prescriptions to my door! Get some cards made at Vista Print and get your own little business going!! You can visit the local foster homes, assisted livings and join a local community center. You can find all kinds of great leads there.

#10 Door Dash and UBER

You can also join a second party delivery service that will give you commissions for driving people places and shopping for them.
