If you think outside of the box, you have a better chance of making money online. Kim Komando's website offers a bunch of ideas that you may not think of when considering methods of online income.

Check it out!
The Ibotta app lets you earn passive income by scanning the barcodes of products you buy and uploading your store receipt! You make money when you shop - easy peasy! Just download the app to get started. Kim Komando has more information and a video explaining how to use the app to earn money.

Chronic illness isn't the only reason we may need to work from home. Some of us have children and would prefer to stay at home to raise them. And some of us need to do both!

Has anyone ever asked you about your healthcare experiences?
YourCareMoments is an online survey community where patients can share your voice and get paid with gift cards for doing so.
They provide insights into consumer habits, decisions, and healthcare experiences through short, online, anonymous surveys that they send to their registered patients. The surveys take 5-10 minutes to complete on computers or mobile devices, and YourCareMoments pays PER survey.
In order to survey patients when the information is still fresh in their minds, the company keeps in contact and follows the participants whenever they see a doctor or pick up a prescription. Patients don’t need to worry that YourCareMoments might share their identities; the company never asks for names or addresses.
