You can earn above average rates of return because peer-to-peer lending eliminates the bank function. That means that you participate in nearly the entire interest rate being paid by the borrower, rather than the less than 1% that you will typically earn on certificates of deposit. And you can reduce your risk by investing in slices of hundreds of different loans.
Nice article Meagan. Your article on how to make money from a blog is really great, good info! I am a stay at home dad and full time internet marketer.

Then, I found a program from a stay at home mom who created a program on how to use Squidoo to make a full time income.
It’s one of the oldest and most proven ways to make money – buy low, sell high. The buy low part comes from searching garage sales, estate sales, and even thrift stores to find items that are in good condition (“gently used”) but selling well below what they would if they were brand-new. In this way, you might be able to acquire an item for $5, and later sell it for $50.

Hi! Meagan. Found your most colorful and helpful website and blog while “pinning” from pinterest. Always love to discover new sites from and for us women. Very helpful and educational. Subcribed to your site. I just recently started blogging myself. Since I am a “newbie” at all this stuff I still have plenty to learn. I most recently formed my own home business doing something I am told I am good at and I have a passion for which is creating slideshows for people to capture every occasion and event in their lives. I sync them to music of their choice and have already started bringing in a modest income from my area of where I live but am ready to take it to the worldwide web. I already have a facebook page set up with samples of my work. I would welcome your advice on my blog. It isn’t even a week old, it is createamomentslideshows.wordpress.com please take a look at it. It is a blank page except for my business name and slogan and I have a video advertising it, that I created myself. Thank you very much. Sincerely Julie at createamomentslideshows & children’s storybook DVDs. P.S. I also create children’s storybook DVDs from your child’s photos and formulate a short story around their interest, likes , or personality.
Food. The second word in “Bed and Breakfast” is just as important as the first. Some B&Bs have tried to serve their guests muffins, juice, and coffee in the mornings, but the most successful hosts understand that the breakfast they serve will make a lasting impression on their guests. You can get creative and serve the type of breakfast traditional for the area that you’re in. For instance, if your home is located in the South, then eggs, grits, and biscuits may go over well, while Southwest guests may appreciate a traditional Tex-Mex meal. Whatever you decide, make it memorable and make sure that your guests feel welcome and appreciated. Make it memorable, and they’ll spread the word for you.

Going away for a weekend? Have an extra bedroom you're not using? List it on Airbnb! To get started, list your entire home or room on the platform (include high-quality photos and a great description) and then go live. BTW, it's completely free to list your home on Airbnb! Once your home is listed, renters can view it online and book it for a certain amount of time. Guests are charged via the Airbnb platform before arrival, and the money (minus a 3 percent booking fee) is immediately deposited in your account, via PayPal, or international money wire. Some Airbnb hosts are earning thousands each month renting their home out via the platform.
Prior to that group, they had an online community for teachers looking for lesson plans. That probably sounds pretty random, but it's crazy the type of communities you can build and rally people around. If it's something that you're passionate about yourself and you want to connect with others that have that same passion, then an online community is something you should definitely consider.
