FIRST, be honest with your family. I have come across this situation many many times. THEN, prioritize, find out where the money went, was it to other necesessities of life, or did you blow it on something that was totally just for you at the time? Can you map out a budget ?
Making extra money is something only you can figure out. Only you know where your talents lie, where your education has taken you, what are your schedule limitations, and if you have any other creative skills to work with that could give you a unique business.
For instance, I want to make extra money. I thought a catalog merchandising website is a great idea, but I haven't figured out where to fit it in my schedule. I have like, less than 90 days to associate with my job coach for this startup, yet I haven't fit that into my schedule. So this is an example of what to consider when you get creative in the online job market out there. ALSO beware of SPAM artists which is another cute name for SCAM artists. Find out the legitimacy of any business first. I hope I helped you.
