In today's world, in order to get ahead, it seems so many families are turning to 2nd jobs or work from home in order to earn an extra few dollars.
While there is nothing wrong with taking on a part-time job, keep in mind it is a good idea to make sure you are doing something you enjoy. Perhaps you like doing makeovers, then maybe you want to see Avon or Mary Kay on the side. If you like spending time alone but are very creative, perhaps you could build something in your craft room or garage and sell it on consignment with someone at your local flea market.
Finally, keep in mind that winnings are earnings too. And, as we all know, the more you enter, the better your chances of winning. So why not spend a few minutes every day entering contests (preferably with cash prizes) on the internet. There's no overhead, and you might even enjoy the sites that you end up visiting to enter the contest.
If you do decide you need to earn a second income, good luck to you in whatever your adventures might be.
