January ~A Month in Review

This is a January in Review Post, because I can’t actually call it an Income Report.  This has this been the hardest month ever to get through! The actionable steps I need to follow through on my goals need to be created, because there has to be an easier way to get off to a better start!

I don’t know about you, but I like to start the New Year with a list of Goals that I want to accomplish during the upcoming year.  I don’t call them Resolutions because those ALWAYS fail. But I find that as soon as I set my mind on those goals I am faced with HUGE roadblocks almost immediately!

 

Set a goal…No Matter What!

Obstacles WILL Show up!

Fight them off With Positive Reinforcements.

They are part of the Adventure!

 

I got this fabulous quote from watching videos on the Female Entrepreneur Association Website. I absolutely love listening to what Carrie Green has to say!  I actually found her by accident with a random book title search on my library’s website and feel in love with her message. Anyway, moving forward.

 

2018 Goals

Remember this list?

  1. Amazon Arbitrage (sale of found items from other retailers)
  2. NoTouchy Diaper Rash Spray
  3. Merch by Amazon (I hope to get approved for this one!)  I did not get approved for this, it seems I have to have already designed and sold t-shirts on my own before they will let me do it with them!
  4. E-Book authorship
  5. CafePress
  6. Stock Photo Sales
  7. Uber Driving- almost have all the steps done, but am rethinking what availability I would have
  8. Grow My Hubby’s Cleaning Service
  9. Grow this blog!!

Well I now have a few more points to add to this list!

The First One Under My Belt

As I promised, I would update you often on the “Work from home Options” options that are available.  Granted it is still summer around here and the schedule is CRAZY!  I do hope that with the kids going back to school in two weeks that I can settle into a better schedule of research and implementation!

I have started with Toluna.ca (For Canadians.) There is a .com for Americans.  It is a survey site that earns you points for every survey that you complete, either fully or cancelled by the system based on the demographic questions you’ve answered at the beginning of each survey.

It is a bit tedious, so far, to be honest.  I think I may have gone through 10 to 15 surveys already and most run about 20 to 30 minutes.  While you can earn 1200 to 2000 points for that time frame, or alternatively 200 points if they don’t “need” you to finish the whole thing, it does take a lot of points to redeem for gift cards. It is a bit time consuming for a work online experience, that seems to give moderate return for the time investment.  However, as this post says this is the first one under my belt!

It takes 30,000 points to get a $10 gift card, $75,000 points to get a $25 gift card. There are many different retailers, restaurants and services that are available in gift card format, like Starbucks and Itunes.  But there is also another option that is not right up at the top: The Paypal gift card. At 60,000 points for $20 increment redemption it is possible to get cash outs.

 

There are also entries earned for every survey completed to earn large totals of points.  While clicking around I found a tab for Test Products, while there are no products available currently, it is an option with this company that you can be sent products that you test and review(and get to keep) So, as I achieve more with this site I will add updates to this post.

If you have been working with Toluna, leave comments below on your experiences with them!

Thanks a bunch!
