I am always on the look out for unique or odd jobs we can all do to earn online. Though I don’t believe these are the oddest jobs out there, It was a surprise to discover their existence. It took me quite a while to even come up with a title for this blog!!
Some of these jobs are seriously odd, but others you just wouldn’t think of doing! I’m always trying to decide which to include and which to leave out! Believe me, I still find plenty of junk online I choose not to promote on my site. Most of these are opportunities I had stored and not yet shared…there is still so much to share, but it certainly couldn’t all go here!
I hope you find something on this list that interests you, if not be a pal and pass it on to someone who may be interested! ?? I am often asked what benefit I receive from telling others about these jobs? Well, I don’t know about you, but I enjoy sharing with and helping others!! ☺️☺️☺️. I also see many families and single parents out there trying to make ends meet and I’ve been there!! Most of the companies I promote, I have not heard of too long before posting: I am not affiliated with every organization I post about. I also usually share the experiences I’ve had with certain companies or websites, so I at least hint at the ones I’ve already tried.
I become frustrated with the unending negativity and ‘Scam-o-Phobia’ (don’t really think that’s a word, but it fits!) people continue to express regarding working at home, when most have never looked for JOBS, but searched for ways to become rich or make quick money!! Those are the best methods to be scammed!! Most money made quickly has been made illegally, or one party has been scammed by the other! The only method to have money coming in regularly, is to maintain a J-O-B or some type of freelance job.
Thats how I feel when I learn something new…I can’t wait to share!! I only share legitimate opportunities and have not tried to deceive anyone. For what? People get scammed enough on their own, by not doing research for themselves, or by just being greedy and not reading between-the-lines. NO SCAMS HERE!
Why did I choose the title I did? Because like most of you these opportunities are new to me, and I am surprised at the neat ways I keep finding to make money online or at home. I still have so much to share, so stay tuned!! Much success on your work from home journey!
