Read about the six solid techniques to
earn money quickly from your home.
There are so many money-making
opportunities, but if you actually want to
raise some cash, you shouldn’t do low-
skill tasks and get minimum wage.
Instead, you should learn a new skill and
spend some money to start getting
1. Try to pay less for your bills
Not everyone thinks about it, but you can
negotiate the price for pretty much every
service. Including the fixed monthly costs.
And saved money is the same as earned
The examples of fees you can pay less
Credit card rates and fees
Cell phone fee
Make a phone call, and ask if these costs
can be lowered, it’s that simple.
Pro-tip: remember two great phrases:
“Times are difficult.”
“Is there anything you can do?”
Always be nice. If something goes wrong,
don’t panic. Just hang up and call back
later. Chances are that you’ll be talking to
a different person, maybe they’ll be able
to help you.
2. Do the same with rent
Probably, rent is your biggest expense. So
if you lower it even a little, it will quickly
So how can you do it?
You should figure out what your landlord
These are a few things you can offer in
exchange for lowering the price:
Prepay in advance
Sign a long-term lease
Suggest extending the termination
notice from 1 month to 2 or 3
You can give up a parking space if
you don’t need it
Promise things that will save them
money once you move out like not
smoking inside the apartment not
having cats at home (if those things
are allowed for you now), etc.
3. Sell something on the Internet
If you have a pair of great shoes you
never wear or a collection of old baseball
cards or an outdated device, sell them on
an online marketplace like eBay, Craigslist,
4. Negotiate your salary
With just a small conversation you can
earn thousands more and the best part is
that the gains only add up year after year.
So, a great deal all around.
You can read more on that in another
article right here , but here’s a small
1. Find out how much you should
earn. To do so, you can use
different sites, for example,
PayScale.com, Glassdoor.com, or
Salary.com, to see the salary range
for your position and area.
2. Prepare your boss for the talk. Tell
your boss that you’d like to discuss
your salary with them.
3. Use the information about your
achievements at work during the
negotiations; also, think about the
problems your company faces and
how you can solve them.
Just make sure that you actually do a
great job, so that you had the arguments
in favor of the raise.
Such negotiating takes some upfront
work, practice, and lots of courage.
However, what you get out of just 1
conversation is definitely worth the effort.
5. Find another job
If you’re wondering whether you should
find a different job or even change
industries, you can use the so-called
Bezos Regret Minimization Framework.
It’s quite simple.
The question you need
to answer is: what will I regret more in 20
years: changing nothing or trying out
something new (and maybe failing)?
6. Become a freelancer
Both finding a new job and preparation for
negotiating a more competitive salary take
time. But starting a side hustle on the
Internet is much faster.
Remember that freelance is a skill, and
you have to learn to become better at it.
To choose a side gig that suits you,
answer the following questions:
What do I like doing?
How much free time do I have?
What am I good at?
How can it be helpful for my
Some people don’t have enough time to
organize their closets. Others need a
website designer, there are lots of
Analyze these things:
Your skills (like coding, languages,
Your hobbies, things you like to do
in your free time.
Next, what makes you
knowledgeable enough to be paid
for what you do?
Maybe you have a degree at this, or
you’ve finished some online-
courses? That’s very helpful, but
probably the most important thing at
this stage is to have a good
portfolio, showcasing your best
Finally, start looking for clients.
You can just print out some business
cards or create a website.
But first, make
sure to understand what people want.
– Know your clients, their needs, and
– Talk to them directly
Don’t just sit
around and wait for someone to find you.
As soon as you’ve found a potential
client, send them an email directly.
Hopefully, these ideas will help you with
earning more money. After all, financial
freedom is worth working towards!
