5 WAYS YOU MIGHT BE LOSING MONEY

WITHOUT KNOWING IT

Do you know if you are being fobbed off and losing money?  Do you understand what your consumer rights are?  Most people would probably answer “no” to these questions, me included!

Can You Make Money With Surveys?

CAN YOU MAKE MONEY WITH SURVEYS?

Have you ever wondered if you can really make money with surveys?

This is something I’ve been wondering about a lot lately. I’ve done a few surveys in the past and made a few pounds but never really committed to it. I’ve always been too busy bringing in what I thought was the ‘bigger’ money, but could surveys be the ‘bigger’ money?

Looking around on the net and social media, there seemed to be a lot of people claiming to make a nice little part-time income from surveys so I thought that I would investigate further.

It seems that if you are willing to commit some time, then this can be a great way to make money on-line.

I wanted to share with you all the information so that you can read it for yourself and make up your own mind about whether YOU can make money on-line with surveys.

Here I have gathered together a selection of great posts from some top UK money bloggers to share with you today.  Or if you prefer, just head to the bottom of this post where you can read my own thoughts.

Learn How This Child Set Up His Own Business

LEARN HOW THIS CHILD SET UP HIS OWN BUSINESS

I recently learned about a child who has set up his own business designing and manufacturing socks using positive affirmations.

As you may know, I encourage my own child to make money. I believe that encouraging children and showing them that they can create their own income should they choose, is an important part of creating a healthy relationship with money for them.

Children are naturally creative and sometimes have some fantastic ideas.   Great inventions need research and I wrote a post recently about where you can get help with making money from inventions which you can read here.

So, back to the child who designs his own socks……..

Nine year old Safin started his designs for Socky Wocky at his kitchen table and now has a website, http://www.sockywocky.co.uk/ where he sells his “really cool, bright and fun socks”.

Safin’s mum does all the admin, but the ideas and designs, including the company logo come from Safin himself.

I had the privilege of interviewing this intelligent young man to find out more.  Read on to hear more about Safin in his own words.  Prepare to be inspired!
