1. Choosing a Money Idea
Ideas by Category
(Last updated: May 27, 2014)
Use this page to select from two types of money making ideas. There are small business ideas and extra cash ideas. These ideas are located on other pages in this website.
The two selection topics have links to these ideas arranged by various categories, such as your abilities, needs, preferences, or resources.
Here are the topics:
Introduction to ideas
Ideas for a small business by category
Ideas for earning extra cash by category
These same money making ideas also can be accessed by using the
"Earn Extra Cash" or "Start a Service Business" choices under the "3. Accomplishing the Money Idea" menu heading. In addition, you will arrive within one of these menu choices When returning from the detailed pages for these ideas.
Some money making ideas may attract your attention because they seem to promise instant success or substantial profits. I believe that these promises will turn out to be lacking in most cases. You need to be realistic in your expectations. Normally it is best to gradually increase your goals as your abilities and resources grow.
After you have reviewed the information in this section, you may wish to explore other sections and special pages in my website. See the overviews in the Overview of Main Pages.
