Today we talk about how to make money from home. As you probably have seen there are many blogs that talk about this subject already and show you a list of 50 to 100 ways on how to make money from home.

Hundreds of Blogs That Promise Golden Mountains.


Most of them tell you how to make money doing surveys, that is a total scam, at most I made $25 for signing up and I had to make $5 in a certain time period which I barely made it. Most of the surveys I wasn’t a qualified candidate so basically I made only $5 a month. Even if you are the right person all the time and the slots were open I don’t see any way you can make @250 a month.

In this blog post, I will show you some real legit ideas on how to make a good extra buck. As I write I always aim for the extra mile. This blog post is about starting with $0, you don’t need to have stuff or put money into it.

The ways I show you to make money from home is at $0. All you need is an internet connection and a computer/laptop.

There are a  lot of scams out there these days, for example:

how to make 2k a month doing surveys.

I will not lower myself to scammers and bullies like that promise unsubstantial amounts of money in 30 days. Or make over $250 doing surveys. I tried it for a month and got $25 doing surveys 8 hours a day. You just cannot make $250 doing surveys. I know for a fact that is a flat out scam and lie.
