Losing My Job and How I Have Made MoneyMonday, November 28, 2016
I could have easily sat and cried but for some reason I didn't. Not one tear. I set on a mission to make money from home. I knew I only had to make £800 from home as I could look after Grayson. If I worked from an office I would need at least £1400 a month to cover childcare.
So it is coming up to the end of the month and I thought I would tell you how much money I have managed to earn from home in the past 3 and half weeks.
Drum roll please .......... £711
So here is the breakdown and how I got onto doing it.
Matched Betting - £398
I had seen a bit about matched betting before and always thought it sounded too good to be true and too much work and never signed up. I decided to Youtube it and came across Cora Harrison's video on how see makes serious cash by doing matched betting. Here is her video explaining it! I believed her and decided to start and guess what she was right!
Ebay - 129.00
I then watched more of her videos and realised she and her partner Helen also resell on Ebay. This gave me the motivation to look through my wardrobe and guess what, I had lots of clothes and shoes I could sell. I am so happy with the money I have made and I still have lots of items listed and still to list.
Admin and Social Media work - £184.00
So this is a few things I have pushed together. I know and speak to a lot of bloggers that do social media work for companies. So I spoke to a family member who I knew who could benefit from this and did a few Saturday shifts organising their social media side and also wrote them a blog post.
Also a lot of fellow bloggers have helped me keep level headed during this time. Including Hayley, Corrine, Jenna, Sharon, Katie, Anoushka, Sarah and Amy. I have made so many good friends through this blog and I am not ready to give it up yet.
So next months mission is to make over £800 and I will update you and let you know how I have done.
So if you lose your job, please know its not the end of the world and if you put your mind to it you can earn the money from home to keep you afloat until you can find yourself another job. Also check out the Cora and Helens Youtube channel as they gave me the motivation to stick at it the last few weeks. Their smiles are infectious and they are so helpful. They are trying to get to 5k subscribers for Christmas too, so go on click the sub button and make their day.
Signing off a very happy, very motivated, self employed
