Hobbies That Generate Income

We all have things that we love doing to occupy our time. These same things can generate income.  If what we are doing is a passion of work and can provide residual income,  it can become a hobby that generates income with a little effort and creativity.

An Opportunity To Considermarketing-campaign

Becuase hobbies come in many forms there has to be a way that is common to any idea or concept that will pertain to your hobby.

You can spend a lot of money advertising whatever it is that you are doing if you do radio, television, or newspapers. If you are just starting these are definitely not an option.

Firestick Recent Kodi Upgrade

If you have an Amazon Firestick already you might have tried some of the movie & TV apps that you can add on them.  Some months back I posted on how to save money by using Kodi to add movie apps to your Firestick.

Since then there have been upgrades that made the apps not function well and it made trying to watch movies on it not such a pleasant idea.  I have since done a recent Kodi upgrade that has been working wonderfully.

Have you experienced…television-controller

Using your Firestick and going to Kodi then trying to use one of your movie apps and it would always say no stream available? This is partly because of all the upgrades.

Some of the apps like Exodus really went crazy and drove me nuts trying to watch a movie. I wrote this post to share with you how to install this again where it will give you more apps in case one is not acting right.

Since I have done this install I have been able to enjoy some really good movies that are still at the theatres with pretty good quality to boot.

I will reveal a video in the end which I used to start enjoying watching recent movies and saving myself some cost on expensive theatres or having to wait for Red Box to make them available.

Saving Money Plus Having Access To Other Paid Apps

The firestick will allow you to choose whatever entertainment choices you decide to go with.  If you join Amazon Prime you will get other benefits which are well worth it like all of Amazon Prime recommended movies, tv shows, series & games.

There are discounted opportunities available to receive Amazon Prime if you qualify. See the banner below.

Say goodbye to high cable bills by using just your internet and Firestick.

If you would like to get information on getting the most out of your firestick Click Here.

If you do not yet possess a Firestick Click Here to get it for only $39.99 and have your very own media streaming media Player from Amazon. It also will have an Alexa voice control remote.

Set Up Your Amazon Firestick For Great Movie Watching!

To start enjoying very new movies on your firestick just follow the instructions in the video. Enjoy! If you have already added Kodi and it is acting crazy you can reset your Firestick back to factory settings and then follow the video.

Internet Scams Run Deep

When we think of scams there is no limit to what types of scam we have to prepare ourselves for. Some scams will only financially hurt us a little but there are some internet scams that run deep.

manipulationThe only way a scam can work is if the person who is the target is totally blindsided to what is going on. And this can happen to anyone that has not been exposed to the particular scam being run.

My purpose is to report any kind of scam that I run into to the public to put everyone on notice.  Most of the time it amazes me the creativity of scam artist.  My only conclusion is that the scam artist is a mastermind mind manipulator.

Ways A Scammer Can Get To You

We live in a world where social media takes up a lot of peoples time. How long did you think it would take before scammers would use this platform as one of their strongest recruiting fields for unexpectant targets?social-media-scams

Who Would Have Thought A Facebook Scam?

I know that there are plenty of scams but I would have never thought someone would be able to use Facebook to pull off a scam netting around $600,000 dollars.

Who would let this happen to them? Well, as I mentioned earlier con artist are major manipulators who pull out every mind manipulation technique that the average person cannot perceive.

We all are aware that through social media you can make yourself someone who you are really not. Well, that is one of the scam artists most powerful tool. And Facebook can make this real easy for the scammer.

The Doctor Facebook Friend Scamscam-tactics

In this scam, there was a team of scammers who were able to blindside an innocent unexpectant business owner using her naive state of mind into financial downfall.

They simply created a false entity that would throw you off as someone who would not scam another person. Then added accomplices to solidify the scheme.

To make a long story short this scam was designed to use a large amount of money for confusion to pull money out of the victim.scam-artist

After requesting to be a friend to the victim, the doctor, who used another person profile, claimed to need help while trying to come to the US with a large amount of money was jammed up by US customs.

Thinking ahead that this large amount of money would affect the victim’s train of thought, in which it did, was the key to the scam. The scammers also used another person to substantiate that the doctor was actually jammed up to lock in the scam.

Needless to say, they were able to convince the victim that if she sent X amount of dollars, the doctor’s belongings would be released and she could get her money back. This promise was requested several times which netted around $600,000 dollars.

I just felt in my heart that I should share this information to let people know that scams are real and can have people doing things that we might say there is no way I would do this.

But you never know what scam may manipulate your mind and catch you off guard if you never knew how a certain scam actually works.

Work At Home Party

You probably are wondering just what kind of party is a work at home party?  Well, my idea of it is that it becomes a party when all visitors get together with their thoughts and ideas and share them with one another through comments in the comments section.

introductionTo Get It Started…

I have been trying to do a home business for about a year now and it really gives me something to keep my brain juices flowing. Some people like to read books but I like trying to find ways to generate extra income.

Speaking of reading, it is a lot of that involved when you are researching products or types of businesses.  So if you do read a lot it probably won’t be hard for you to take something you are interested in and put it to work for you.

I see a lot of people trying to promote what the best products to sell are or the best business to do at home is. In reality, I feel that if it is a need for something, that pretty much qualifies it as a good thing to get into as a business.

about-affiliate-marketingWhat About Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing will sort of put both the products and the type of business in your lap at the same time. You just have to make sure you like doing the business side and then the products will be unlimited pertaining to the business.

Let me make an example. I started a lawn service earlier this year. If you read any of my writing you have heard me mention this in another post.

old-school-lawn-service-logoThe business side was lawn maintenance and guess what the product side was? Anything that pertained to lawn care, lawn furniture, lawn equipment and any product that is related to the lawn niche.

You can see my point about the products just fall in there with the business idea.

I am pretty sure if you are reading this post you have a desire to try to work from home right? What are your ideas? Are you wanting to just do a particular service type business or are you wanting to also work it from home with affiliate marketing?

home-officeWhat Do You Need For Affiliate Marketing?

Well, I am going to say you yourself with something you like doing and a website. That is really not it.   I’m just playing.

But for real yall,  you don’t really have to pay anybody to build a website and maintain it unless that is what you want to do. I am going to introduce you to a way to do it yourself even if you have never done it before.

All TheTraining And Startup Website You Need

I know you probably heard of all these different places offering you a free website and you can get on your way. What they don’t tell you is that there are things you have to know to get your site up and running properly.

This means making sure you can be found by the search engines and using different plugins to ensure the proper functions on your website.wa-logo

Also, things like having a secure URL (website address) in which people want to see if they are going to do any money transactions on your site.

Stuck At Home Income

There are different situations that cause someone to spend the mother-at-homemajority of their time at home. Sometimes one may not be able to go out and work a full-time job to earn revenue.  But if you can find a way to make money while you are homebound for any reason you could say you do make a stuck at home income.

Should being at home prevent you from making an income?

Not in this day and age it shouldn’t. There are many things that are available to help you make money at home. There are many companies out there that will pay you to do small assignments for them.

You simply take products of already established entities and market them for a commission.  You just found something to sell with no out of pocket expense of having an inventory.

Reservation Scams Revealed

travel-planningMaking reservations for hotels is a must for us when we are making plans to go on vacation, family reunions or business trips. Because of the degree that a scam artist will go, we would stand a better chance of avoiding being scammed if potential scams are exposed.

Sometimes not receiving what you expect will come from companies you may have heard of which brings me to my topic of reservation scams revealed.

What Is Being Done With Hotel Reservations

Although some will have a good experience with booking hotels through a booking service, there are those who will have a nightmare experience.reservation-desk

While looking into some of the different experiences I found some of them probably could have been avoided.

Some people have complained about being put on the wrong days and some about the pricing, such as the lowest price guarantees that often are not the lowest price available.

Customer service does mean a lot when you are having a problem and need to get it resolved. This brings another complaint in which most of them are said to be unprofessional and give you a major run around instead of fixing a problem you may have.

Because a third party reservation company is being used, a lot of reservations get lost and some people get caught in the middle of a trip and have to try to straighten out where they are going to be lodging at the last minute.

These are just a few things that people have complained about. Below are some personal complaints that I ran into about Hotel.com, a known source while looking into this that does happen.

hotel-reservation-complaint-2

hotel-reservation-complaint-4

How To Avoid Reservation Scams

The only true way to ensure that you will most likely receive what you requested is to knock out the middle man and go directly to the source.making-reservations

Now I am sure that there is some success in using a hotel booking agent but why take the chance if you don’t have to? I’m not saying that they all are out to scam you but if two sources touch things it tends to cause confusion at times.

You are dealing with a business that has a lot of competition trying to win clients using all tactics to win when the only one that should matter in your mind is the hotel itself.

If you get caught between the two of them with a conflict, chances are the blame will go back and forth leading to not being resolved.

Although some companies are very well known and can get the job done, you never can tell what will happen between the time you set everything up until the time you arrive.trivago-logo

This could happen with the best such as Trivago, Kayak, or Hotwire and that isn’t mentioning the many rogue booking sites available out there.

So you see, I suggest using the information from these hotel reservation sources and then contacting the hotel on your own and then at least you will be dealing with the only one that matters.

If there is any wrong information in what you found out you will certainly find it right then and right now.

Conclusion

Convenience is good but sometimes it can be zealous which causes you to make a decision you wish you hadn’t. So if you are going to use an outside source for hotel reservations be aware of some of the potential consequences.

Take Notice Of Scammers

It is a shame that with the positive things technology can bring it gets tarnished by the bad element which is the scammers. This is why we must take notice of scammers.internet-scams

The internet supplies many ways to start your own business and even an easier way to find employment. But because anyone can use this platform to attract people to what they are offering or seeking, we must really make sure we are not being taken advantage of.

How often do you search out things via the internet?

Me myself, I am always looking for product information and sometimes ways to earn revenue online. There is a lot of good information you can find.

But at the same time, you have to be cautious because there is always the bad apples who are there just to take advantage of people for their own self-gain.

Types of schemes such as…types-of-scams

get rich quick schemes, health product schemes, lottery schemes, investment schemes and even work from home schemes.

Many of these schemes are hard to pick up on until you are already taken by surprise. So always remember that what sounds too good to be true probably isn’t.

It doesn’t hurt to pry into what you may be considering before you go all in especially if you can check into it without spending your hard earned cash.

Does this mean don’t try things?  contemplating

No, it really doesn’t. What it means is to think before you leap. I always say if someone gives me an opportunity at no cost to try something, I most likely will.

Reason being I already know to look for certain things like upsells which sometimes tell me that it is all about getting as much money out of you as possible before you figure it out.

Not all offers with upsells are bad as long as you are actually getting something positive out of it rather than just empty promises. But if you are being cautious you will catch any thing fishy before you get taken.

But at least if you were trying it out free you did get a good way to inspect, try and decide if the offer was something that would work for you.

Would you like to witness a great offer you can try yourself first before going all in?

I found a good program in which after trying I am 11 months into it. At first, I was skeptical because it sounded good for not having to pay anything.

I tried it because I had all these ideas and no way to use them. The program introduced me to affiliate marketing which went hand in hand with every idea I had.

While looking into it I found no schemes, no lies, and plenty of sense in what I was being introduced to.wa-review

Offline Vs. Online Businesses

There are many ways to become successful at having your own business. Many have considered starting a business but never took the first step.

Maybe it was because of the uncertainty of what to do. This brings me to which is the best in this competition of offline vs. online businesses.

What I discovereddicovered

Recently I have run into an article that listed 50 offline businesses ideas. They were all very good ways to start out.

They were ideas like child care, coffee cart, food truck, lawn service, handyman, vendor, and dog walker just to name a few. Click here to view more options.

Offline businesses usually focus on one service or job that you perform starting out. There can be unlimited potential in whatever you are good at.

It may be an auto mechanic or even a pet groomer. You just have to love what you are doing and want to do it well.

Let’s compare this to an online business… online-vs-offline

An online business takes the same passion an offline business would take. You must want to do it well and make it successful.

In short, there is not much difference between the two as far as taking an idea and putting it into motion.

The advantage to an online business is that it can have a lower start up cost than an offline business which may call for equipment, a place of business and other physical needs like transportation vehicles.

My personal recommendation   

First of all, I would like to recommend not shying away from learning how to do an online business starting out. It will get the juices flowing for you and become useful in the long run. WA-logo

I started my learning process with Wealthy Affiliate which is an excellent platform to train you in affiliate marketing. I chose this route because affiliate marketing gives you more ways to make revenue over performing one job or service.

Plus it was something new to me which made it exciting in which I knew would keep me interested.

Once I started learning how to use websites to generate income, another idea hit me. I can do an offline business and then combine it with my affiliate marketing to maximize my potential.

What did I do?

I started a Lawn Service and built my own website and added affiliate marketing with it.old-school-lawn-service-logo

So far the website has helped me obtain 10 customers since March of this year. My good work brought me some decent reviews.  Click Here to see.

My babies are Old School Lawn Service which led me to spin off www.oldschoollawnservice.com. Within the website is Old School Lawn Supplies that is my affiliate marketing program.

Conclusion

There is really no winner here because they both take determination, a desire to do it and a mindset to learn and improve along the way.

They both have great potentials and some cost to start up. But whichever you choose you can be successful if you take the first step and put your all into it. Click Here to get started the way I did.
