Survey Side Hustle Tips Plus ProOpinion Review

ProOpinion Review For Paid Surveys At HomeAs you all know, I am all about finding different ways to make extra money and that includes reviewing legitimate companies I’ve heard about so that you can possibly join them.

Lately, I have been asked quite frequently from readers about legitimate companies that allow you to complete paid surveys at home. It’s hard to know what’s legitimate and what’s not since there are so many different scams out there.

However, not all are scams. One that I would like to review today is ProOpinion and they are a legitimate survey company.

ProOpinion is a new survey company that is looking for many to join. They are looking for people to take surveys related to their field of expertise. ProOpinion rewards with points redeemable for Amazon or iTunes giftcards. While it is not cash, pretty much anything can be bought on Amazon!

Life Update – Our House Finally Sold!

Life UpdateHello everyone!

Time for another life, goals, and food budget update. It’s been TWO months since I last did a life update.

The last two months have been pretty crazy and many things have changed.

Between buying an RV, moving the rest of our stuff from our house in St. Louis to Fruita, selling our house, traveling “home” to St. Louis several times, working, and more, you can trust me when I say that I am tired!

I won’t lie though – it’s been a fun few months too.

We’ve made many life changes this year and while there have been some stressful moments (mainly with the home sale), everything seems to be going as planned right now (knock on wood).

Continue reading below for my life update and August goals.

How I’ve Earned Over $2,500 In Credit Card Rewards In 2015

How I’ve Earned Over $2,500 In Credit Card Rewards In 2015We’re barely halfway through the year and I’ve already earned over $2,500 in credit card rewards. Each rewards credit card that we have has earned us between $450 to $875 this year!

I’ve earned this without paying any interest charges and by just spending the normal amount I spend each month.

I also plan on doing this many more times this year. In fact, we already have over 10 rewards credit cards between the two of us and we are looking for the next credit card that we want to “churn” right now.

Some of the rewards credit cards I have churned in the past few years include:

  • Chase Sapphire Preferred – We each have this one and it has given us over $1,000 cash back.
  • Southwest Cards – When we signed up, we received 2 free roundtrip flights per credit card.
  • Chase Freedom – This is a great credit card that often has 5% cash back and it was one of the very first credit cards we churned for the sign up bonus.
  • Chase Ink Bold – This one gave me $875 as a sign up bonus and in rewards after just 3 months of normal use.
  • REI – This only had a $100 sign up bonus but you also receive 5% back on all REI purchases and there is no annual fee. Stacking the 5% on top of the 10% we get for being REI members is a great deal!

While I love using credit cards to my advantage and earning credit card rewards, I know that many have no idea what this even is or how to take advantage of the current credit card offers that are out there. Occasionally when I break out my credit card to pay for something, someone will mention how I shouldn’t go into credit card debt, so I know there are many out there who don’t know how to use credit cards to their advantage.

Below are my tips for earning credit card rewards. Hopefully with the tips below you can learn how to use credit cards to your advantage and start earning credit card rewards. [Read more…]

5 Steps You Need to Follow to Finally Start Making Money With Your Blog

Steps to Follow to Start Making Money With A BlogHello! Today I am sharing a post written by a fellow blogger. Making money with a blog completely transformed my life. You can read further in my monthly online income report updates.

If you’re a blogger, you’re probably interested in making money with a blog.

But if you search online for how to monetize your blog and you’re given the same, tired advice everywhere: place ads on your site, use lots of affiliate links, look for sponsors.

While those methods might still work, they’re usually a gigantic waste of time for beginning bloggers, requiring you to aggressively promote other brands for little payoff.

There’s a better way to make money: creating your own product.

I started with a completely unknown blog that made no money (unless you count the pennies I made with Adsense) to making just under $500 during the six-day prelaunch of my very first product. If I can do it, you can too.

Here are five steps to finally start making money with a blog of your own: [Read more…]

We Bought An RV!

We Bought A Class C RV - The Winnebago Itasca Viva!Well, we weren’t a one vehicle family for very long. We bought a Class C RV, the Winnebago Itasca Viva, the other day.

You read that correctly.

WE BOUGHT AN RV!

Now, this wasn’t just a random, spur of the moment decision. We have been thinking about buying an RV for over a year now.

We have done an insane amount of research, we have watched and read countless RV videos and websites, and more. We’ve thought about maintenance expenses, fuel costs, emergency repairs, RV parking, RV campgrounds, laundry, wifi, and so on.

We ended up buying a Winnebago Itasca Viva, which is a Class C RV. We thought about getting a Class B RV but decided on a Class C RV so that we could have a little more space.

Some of the reasons for why we decided on the Winnebago Itasca Viva include:

  • It’s not a huge motorhome, but it’s enough space for us at 24 feet long. We will be traveling with our dogs and there is plenty of space for the four of us.
  • It’s not hard to drive and it doesn’t get absolutely horrible gas mileage (it’s very similar to the Wrangler we used to own).
  • There’s a full bathroom with an actual shower, toilet, and sink.
  • There’s a bed. There’s actually enough room to sleep 6 in our RV. Who wants to join us?
  • There’s a kitchen with a big fridge, freezer, sink, stove, and microwave.
  • It has a dining table with plenty of space for me to work.

As you can see, the RV we chose is pretty amazing! We really love it and have already taken some day trips to test everything out.

Now, some of you may be wondering why we bought an RV in the first place. Below are some of the reasons we decided to buy an RV. [Read more…]

A Day In The Life Of An Online Business Owner

A Day In The Life Of An Online Business OwnerLately, I have had many, many readers ask me to create a “Day In The Life” post about how my average day goes. While my average work day changes all the time, I thought keeping track of what I do each day would be a fun task.

I also thought it would be a good idea to create this post because many often have misconceptions about what online business owners, freelancers, bloggers, etc. do each day.

No, I don’t just sit around, drink coffee all day long, and sit on Facebook. However, that’s what many believe actually happens in the average day of an online business owner.

The truth is that I actually get work done! Yup, how surprising is that? :)

It was a little hard writing this post. My average day can vary greatly. That’s one of the main things I love about freelancing – I can create my own schedule and it can be as flexible as I want it to be.

Anyway, below is my average work day as an online business owner, freelance writer, and blogger. Now, I’m not perfect and I realize that.

I will occasionally binge watch Netflix shows, waste time on social media, hug my dogs for an extended period of time, and so on. Also, some days I work a LOT, whereas others I don’t do anything.

My average work day is also very scattered and messy looking, so it’s hard to say exactly how many hours I actually work each day. [Read more…]
