I mentioned in my About Me page that I'm dreaming of becoming a work at home mom. I've been dreaming about it for awhile but unfortunately, we just can't live on one income right now. Paul and I both have student loans to pay off and he's just getting started in his career. So, I need to find a way or ways to bring in extra income so that I can eventually go part time at my job or quit all together.
My three main extra "jobs" right now are Barefoot Books, Squidoo and Cafe Press. Please, indulge me while I shamelessly plug each of them ;)
Barefoot Books is an independent children's book publisher that offers a network marketing program. As an Ambassador for Barefoot Books, I market the books online and in my local community and earn a good percentage of what I sell. Barefoot Books has been a great fit for me because I love to read and truly believe it's important for children to be exposed to reading at an early age.
Please, feel free to visit my Barefoot Books Blog or My Barefoot Books Marketplace.
Squidoo is an online tool that allows you to build free web pages about topics that interest you. They call the pages lenses. It's a lot of fun and super addicting!
You can earn money from lenses by getting a share of the ad revenue for the entire site. You can also earn money by using your lenses to promote products on Amazon and Cafe Press as well as your own affiliates companies.
Cafe Press is a great place for people who are good at illustrating or photography. Cafe Press is a print on demand company that gives you the opportunity to open your own shop and to add your designs to their products. There is a free shop option and a premium shop option which costs a bit but is worth it if you are willing to put some work into it!
I currently have two shops:
Rasu Design - A bit of a random collection of shirts and products for adults
Funny Bunny Boutique - Features cute designs for babies and kids
Thanks for reading! If you have any questions about any of these "jobs" please let me know! I'd love to help others get involved with all three of these great companies!
