Make money online? Do odd jobs around your neighborhood? Mow lawns? Run a small eCommerce business? Thinking about opening a computer repair business in your area? This is the thread for you.

Resources, tips, personal experiences and stories all welcome.
Fuck Tim Ferriss.
Nothing comes quick in this world, Alice (at least not usually). If you need cash, I'd recommend looking into a conventional 9-5 or even flipping burgers. This lifestyle isn't for everyone, but it is for some people.
Another option is pawning off anything that you don't use, any old or broken technology you don't want to repair on Ebay. Clean out a room in your house and you'd be surprised what kind of stuff you can find to hock online and even more surprised as to the kind of money it could add up to.
>Fuck this, I want to start making some money online right now.
If you really want to, there are lots of Fiverr-style marketplaces online where you can make a decent income just doing menial shit for people like fake product reviews and testimonials. Success in this however largely depends on your ability to sell yourself well and pimp your profile for good ratings so that you become more visible to future customers. I'd recommend starting out with an incredibly low rate on any of these marketplaces or even offer free services to customers in exchange for good reviews. No one said it was going to be easy.

Look offline, too. Look in your local area for odd jobs. Could make yourself a decent chunk of change, Alice. If you're prepared to do some heavy lifting, lawn mowing, helping people clean out their ratty old homes and garages, you could walk away with cash in hand to spend on stuff you need or better yet re-invest it making more money online.
