Earning Extra Cash

Hi and Thank You For Visiting My Blog.

It's been quite a long time since my last post. Well, I didn't meant to leave my blog just like that. A lot of things happened in the past (since my last post). I have been busy and most of the time I just don't feel like write a new post to my blog.

But, hey! I'm back now and today I found quite an interesting topic to discuss.

The topic for today is... earn extra cash.

You might think that I'm going to share some tips on how to make extra bucks, but to be honest, I'm not. This is actually more to a discussion, coz I might need some advice too. Haha..

For the past few months, I was thinking to earn extra money. Be it through through online (internet) or offline (work physically). There are countless way actually and I tried both ways. Unfortunately, I failed both and I spent a lot of money too. You might have the idea of what I'm talking about. Yeah... yeah... I spent my money to buy eBooks on the internet, try to earn money from internet. I did as what advised in the eBooks but I found it is hard for me (although the author said it is easy). I don't really get it actually. It will be easy if we really want to do it, but I don't feel like it. And there it goes, I left all behind as I don't want to lose anymore money. I spent hundreds just to learn... sounds funny? Well, It is not funny for me... haha!

As for offline business, I joined several MLM company or better known as direct selling company or also known as network marketing company. I guess most of the people around the world would do the same as in this nature of business, you can get more profit. "You can be your own boss" as they say. There's no lies in that, though. When I come to think of it, I agree with them. You sell on your own, You order yourself to do the work, You get the profit and you don't have to share the profit to anyone. Of course, in this kind of business you don't have business partner or workers. In other words, you will earn all the profit. In my case, I didn't get any profit from one of the company. In fact, I lose a lot of money and I lend a lot of money, too. In the other company, I did better than the 1st one. I didn't go "all-out" like before. Instead, I just bring some promotional tools to office and my car, then my friends see it, and they ended buy the product from me. Easy as that. But I didn't earn much, for real.

After all these happened to me, one thing come to my senses - THERE IS NO JOB THAT IS EASY. Actually this phrase has been in my mind since I start working but I don't know why it disappeared for a while. But I think, as human, we always look for shortcuts, aren't we? Some people follow the shortcuts and become successful but most of the people on earth, end up fail. So, what we can actually do to earn extra money? How we earn extra money? There are tons of answers in my mind but I just don't know how to filter it. I just don't know...

Right now, I decided to get back to the basic - Old School style. Check on the newspaper, internet (better) for part time job. Not the ones that requires me to give money to start. I'm looking for companies that will hire me as part-timer and allow me to work during my off days. Simple as that. Just to cover my bills and debts will do. After I decided this way, I feel more comfortable and my headache has reduced a lot. It still aching but it is only the matter of choosing the right part-time job. I guess I can figure it out myself.

Oh.. another thing. I would like to give you a link to a website which will give you some tips before join or register to any online home-based business. It is actually a good website where you can protect yourself from being scammed. Visit this link

My advice before I end this...

Before you decide to join any company or home-based business, whether it is online or offline, be sure to ask people around. One great way is to search it on Google and go to any forum/blogs discussing about it. This can put your ass in the safe side. If you decided to go for online business, be sure that your mentor is really good at it. I can suggest you some trusted ones. Just contact me or post any comments and I will reply. If you decide to go for home-based job, be sure to ask the personnel everything in your doubts - company profiles, what they do, what product they are selling, the company reputations, etc.

So, that's it for now. I hope this will be helpful for you. For any inquiries or comments, you can contact me at or Hope to hear from you. Thanks and good bye!
