So you got a college degree, got a successful career as a real estate agent, a shiny car and a beautiful house and husband, then had a couple of kids and became a stay at home mom. While you appreciate being able to raise the kids, perhaps you miss your own financial independence. Or maybe you just want to stay occupied.
You may be surprised to know that there are hundreds of jobs out there that you can do in the comfort of your pajamas.

Meaning any time a blog visitor clicks on one of the advertisements on the page, a coin goes in the jar. Some blogs make money from pay per click advertisements on top of endorsing products. There is big money in endorsements if you have a large enough audience that the product is willing to hire you for.
Are you an expert at anything? Perhaps you know all about cooking. Or how to create DIY furniture. More and more people turn to YouTube the minute they want to learn how to do something.
