Be a Freelance Writer

Earn More Writing with Holly Johnson will jump start your freelance writing career and help you make more money, whether you're looking for a side-hustle or full-blown career.

I hesitated to buy this course but am so glad I did! It cuts the crap and delivers actionable steps to become a freelance writer. I wish I had bought it sooner. Before this course, I was lucky to make $100 a month. Using the advice in the Earn More Writing course helped me grow my side-hustle into a full-time income where I make $3,000+ a month. You can read my article about it here.

Make Money as a Virtual Assistant

10kVA by Kayla Sloan will introduce you to the world of Virtual Assistants (VA) and show you how to make money as a VA from start to finish.

This course helped me figure out what I was good at and what companies would pay me to do for them. You have a skill that someone else needs… that someone will pay you for. 10kVA can help you figure out what it might be.


Get Paid for Your Skills

Fiverr is the world’s largest marketplace for freelance services. Are you good at making graphics, PDF printables, or spreadsheets? Or maybe you’re awesome at proof reading or data entry. Whatever it is, you can make money here.

Best Ways to Save Money

Save Your Spare Change

Acorns takes you back to the days of saving your spare change with the convenience of today’s technology. All of your purchases are rounded up and the change goes into an investment account. You’d be surprised at how much you can save!

The first month I used it, I stashed away $70 without even realizing it.

Earn Cash Back from Shopping Online

Rekuten gives you cash back on everything you buy online. It’s easy and it’s free, and you’re gonna buy it anyway so you might as well get something out of it. We bought our refrigerator using Ebates! We used our Chase Sapphire Rewards credit card and earned points for free travel. And we ordered it online from Lowe’s through Ebates and scored free cash back. It was pretty cool.

Spend Less on Vacation

CityPASS gets you in to top tourist sites and attractions for a fraction of the cost. Save money on your next vacation to

  • Chicago
  • Atlanta
  • Boston
  • San Francisco
  • and more

It’s easy to save 43% and more on fun stuff when you’re traveling.
