The Best Investment Apps for Beginners

Making money online has been a goal of mine for many years. There are a ton of ways to make that money and in this article I want to discuss which Investment Apps are the very best for beginners to get started with.

Maybe you don’t have a lot of money or maybe you haven’t ever dabbled in the investment market. But I have found several apps that are perfect for anyone and are legit ways to make extra money.

1. Stash

Stash is an easy to use Investment App that is tailored to your skill level with investing. If you are a beginner and know nothing about investing, they have a plan for you.

The great thing about Stash is that you don’t need a lot of money to get started. You can fund your account for as little as $5. And they do the investing for you based on your profile questionnaire.

In order to sign up, all you have to do is use an email and create a password. Then you will fill out a few profile details about yourself. It’s a simple 4 step process…

  • Brief Introduction
  • Financial Profile
  • Verify Your Identity
  • Create Your Stash Plan

Once you start investing with Stash, you will be able to learn more about investing and eventually be able to transition into an active investor. This is one of the reasons I got started with Stash… I wanted to see my investment in action and in the process educate myself on how to invest.


2. Acorns

This is actually the very first investing app that I got started with. I was familiar with it because I had a friend who would always talk about it.

What I love about it is that there are several ways that you can invest. You can simply add money automatically every month from your bank account, you can send a lump sum to invest on occasion (for instance if you get a nice sum of cash for your birthday from grandma), and you can utilize the “spare-change” method.

The spare-change aspect of Acorns is where they will automatically round up your spending on everyday items to the nearest dollar. You don’t really notice the difference, but it adds up really quick.

There is also an option to round up your change to an even higher amount if you want. So for instance, if you spend $2.97 at the store, you can choose to round up to $5… which would invest $2.03.


3. Clink

Clink is an intuitive investing app that is perfect for those with not a lot of money to start. You can round up your spare change just like with Acorns or you can set up an auto fund.

It only takes $1 to get started and you also get to choose how aggressive or cautious you want to be with your investing. Personally I would suggest being cautious at first and as you begin to grow your account and investing knowledge, you can tweak your strategy to be a little more aggressive in the future.

It is super simple to get started and signing up only takes a few minutes.

4. Robinhood

I saved the BEST FOR LAST because this is by far my favorite investing app. It has an easy user interface and you can make quick trades right from your phone.

Another great thing about the Robinhood trading app is that you can trade Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Etherium, etc. I make about $30 a day on average trading crypto with Robinhood. You can use the app on your phone or log in to the website.

Upon signing up, you actually get a FREE stock. That’s their gift to you and everybody likes free gifts. Some of the stocks they give out can be worth up to $100. When I signed up, I received a share of Groupon Stock.

To Sum Up

Investing in the stock market can be intimidating to say the least, but with user-friendly apps like these listed, the power is in your hands. Whether you want a set it and forget it type of investment portfolio or if you want to be more involved, these apps give you that option.

Check them out and see how easy it really is to make your money work for you. If nothing else, sign up and get your Free stock at Robinhood… you never know it could turn out to be another “Apple” and it could shoot through the roof.

Whatever your level of investing may be, these apps are making it much easier for the common person to get involved in the stock market.

FeaturePoints – Earn Cash, Gift Cards, or Bitcoin

If you are looking to earn extra cash or maybe even some Bitcoin, then you might want to take a look at this website/app that makes it super easy to rack up points and redeem them for cash, gift cards, and bitcoin.

It’s called FeaturePoints and I recently stumbled across it online. So far, I am quite impressed. Keep reading to discover exactly how you earn points and how easily you can redeem those points.

Take Surveys

Like most other platforms out there, FeaturePoints allows you to earn points by taking surveys. Now, this is not my favorite way to earn money online, however you can earn a lot of points by doing this if you have the time.

All you have to do is click on a survey that you want to complete and once you have finished the survey, you will receive the amount of points assigned to it. The surveys range from 8 minutes to 20 minutes and they pay out anywhere from 150 points to 3000 points.

FeaturePoints Surveys

If you really love to take surveys, there are a few other websites that I absolutely LOVE to use. They are quick and easy and you don’t have to “prequalify” for the surveys, so you don’t waste a lot of time. I’ll list those below.

Complete Offers

Signing up for different offers is another way that you can earn points with this platform. Personally this is not my favorite way to earn points because I’m usually not interested in the offers that are available. However, if you are interested in a particular offer you can actually accumulate a lot of points quickly.

For joining Hulu for instance, you can earn 1,000 points. Other offers can earn you up to 3000 points. Like I said, this is a good way to accumulate points very quickly, but only if you are interested and able to complete the offers.

Earn Easy Cash Back

Earning cash back on purchases you were already going to make is one of the best ways to earn points here at FeaturePoints. I’ve used this option several times and it is especially useful during the holiday season when I am purchasing gifts.

Basically you are earning points when you shop online. There are hundreds of stores to choose from and each one offers a different percentage of cash back.

Feature Points Earn Cash Back

I recently purchased a Dyson vacuum from Walmart because it was being sold at a great discount. I purchased it online and chose to pick it up in the store. By utilizing the earn cash back feature, I got a great deal on the vacuum and I also got $10 cash back. It was simple and easy.

Download Apps – Rack up Points Quickly

If you have a smart phone, you can add FeaturePoints to your phone and earn points while on the go. And if you have an Android you can earn points for downloading other apps as well.

Unfortunately this is only for Android users, and I have no idea if they plan to add I-phone users to the platform opportunity in the future.

The way you get points is by downloading apps and using them for 2 minutes, or registering with the app, or getting to a certain level within the game. After you have done the required steps you can uninstall the app from your phone if you no longer wish to have it.

I like earning points this way, because it is so simple and I’ve actually found a few apps that I actually like and have chosen to keep

Feature Points Download Apps

Share with Friends – Referral Program

If you have friends or family that also like earning free money, then you can easily share this program with them and get rewarded for doing so.

Or if you are an affiliate marketer or have a blog, you can also share your link and get more points. I like to make YouTube videos reviewing programs like this and then leave my referral link in the description for viewers to use if they are interested.

Feature Points Referral Program

By sharing your unique referral link, you will earn 50% of what your referrals earn. This is a great way to make some passive income.

Rewards – Earn Cash, Gift Cards, Bitcoin

Now we get to the good part… the REWARDS!! So with FeaturePoints, you can redeem your points for either Cash, Gift Cards, or Bitcoin.


You can redeem for “cash” in the form of PayPal or a Visa Card. It only takes 3000 points to redeem $5. And you can redeem all the way up to $1000 (for 600,000 points).

Feature Points Cash Rewards Gift Cards:

Gift cards are another option and sometimes an easier way to redeem… especially if you don’t have a PayPal account. There are a ton of gift card options including the following:

  • AmazonFeature Points Gift Card Rewards
  • Google Play
  • PlayStation Store
  • Starbucks
  • Adidas
  • Best Buy
  • CVS
  • Game Stop
  • eBay
  • Papa John’s
  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Sephora
  • ETC


Feature Points Bitcoin Rewards

There is also an option to redeem your feature points for Bitcoin. For those of you who don’t know, Bitcoin is a popular Cryptocurrency and it’s value fluctuates daily.

You must have a Coinbase account in order to redeem for Bitcoin, but that is fairly easy to do and you can actually earn $10 in Bitcoin by signing up here!


As you can see, FeaturePoints offers some great ways to earn extra money for relatively easy tasks. This is one of the websites/apps that I use on a daily basis in order to add to my bank account.

One thing I really love about FeaturePoints is that you can redeem your points for several different things and you are not limited to just PayPal or to just an Amazon gift card. You literally have a choice and you can even get into the Cryptocurrency game if you so desire.

If you want to see first hand how FeaturePoints works, check out the recent video walkthrough I made below:

Affiliate Marketing Training – Making Money with Amazon

Amazon is one of the biggest online retailers with a huge brand name that everyone uses. Think about it, you have probably bought something on Amazon in the last year if not more recently.

The potential to make money with Amazon is enormous and a great place for beginners to start. As an Affiliate Marketer you can leverage the brand recognition of Amazon and earn commissions for promoting products.

It’s relatively easy to get started making money with Amazon. All you need to do is follow the steps listed below.

1. Amazon Associates – Sign Up

The first step is to sign up for Amazon’s Affiliate Program called Amazon Associates.

Amazon Associates Affiliate Program

It is free to sign up and you can earn up to 10% commissions from promoting different products.

The Affiliate Program has various levels of commission rates (10% currently being the highest). So depending on what type of products you choose to promote, you can earn a percentage at the given rate.

For instance, luxury beauty products will earn a 10% commission while baby products will earn a 4.5% commission. Therefore, it is important that you know what kind of product you want to promote. Which brings us to step 2

Amazon Associates Commission Structure

2. Find Products to Promote

The second step is to pick a niche and find products on Amazon to promote. While you can literally promote ANY item on Amazon, you will want to focus on a specific category like beauty products or camping gear. This is called a niche and you will use it to build a specific audience.

Amazon Products

Your audience should be interested in the products you are promoting to them and if you target a specific niche, you will be much better off.

So once you have decided on the type of products you will be promoting, you need to grab your unique affiliate link. Within Amazon Associates, you are given an affiliate ID and each product will have a link associated with it that is assigned to you.

This link is how you will get paid. A customer clicks on your affiliate link and then decides to purchase the product within Amazon. At this point, Amazon pays you the commission percentage for each sale.

3. Create a Review of Product

At this point, you will want to begin promoting products and the best way to do this is to create a review. People love reviews and they typically research a product before purchasing, so if you create a review there is a good chance that someone who is interested in the product will check it out and make a purchase.

In your review, you should give details about the product, photos, and price information. Also, you will want to talk about the benefits that the product offers. A pro vs con list is a great way to do this.

Within your review, you will place your affiliate link to the product you are discussing. This will give the potential customer an opportunity to purchase the product.

A review can be a written blog post or a video that you upload to YouTube. Some people do both. But whichever way you choose to promote, you will want to be consistent and give plenty of information. People want to be thoroughly informed before pulling the trigger on a purchase.

I personally like to use a blog post to promote Amazon products. I have a camping website where I often do gear reviews. Check it out if you want to see how I utilize product reviews within my blog.

The Texas Camping Girl

4. Optimize Content – SEO

Once you have created product review content, you need to make sure that you optimize it. What does this mean? Basically, it is a way to get ranked higher within the search engines.

So by optimizing your content (whether it’s a blog or a video), you tell search engines like Google that you exist and to rank your content higher. People have a better chance of finding your posts if you are ranked on the first page.

For instance, when they search for “Best Dog Toys for Golden Doodles,” your product review post shows up on the first page and they click on your link to read more.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is not hard to do, if you know a few tricks. They are not really tricks, but more like strategies to implement when you create content.

Here’s a basic overview:

  • Do Keyword Research
  • Include Keyword in Title
  • Add Meta Description and Meta Title
  • Submit post link to Google Crawl
  • Add internal and external links within posts
  • etc

To learn more about how to optimize your content so that more people can find it, check out this step-by-step all-inclusive training…. Click Here to Access

5. Collect Commissions

The final step in making money with Amazon is collecting your commissions. Once you have traffic going to your product reviews, you will begin to see the commission payouts roll in.

By the way, Amazon pays you commission no matter what the customer purchases. For instance, if you send someone to Product A but then they start looking around Amazon and find Product B instead and purchase it, you STILL get the commission.

This is great because most people buy more than one thing at a time when they are on Amazon. So you will earn on whatever they end up buying even if it is not the original product you linked to.

There are plenty of reports and tools available within the Amazon Associates program. These reports give you a better idea of what links are getting clicks and what campaigns are producing revenue for you.

Final Thoughts – It’s Easy to Make Money with Amazon

If you’re an Affiliate Marketer and you haven’t already signed up with Amazon Associates then you are truly missing a great opportunity.

With the majority of the population using Amazon every day, the potential commission you could be making is enormous. The brand recognition alone is worth it to me. Like I said before, who hasn’t heard of Amazon?

How to Grow a YouTube Channel – Proven Methods

YouTube is one of the biggest social media platforms available today. In fact, it is actually more of a search engine than just an entertainment platform.

Think about it, everyone is searching for stuff these days, and where do they go to find it usually… YouTube! I know I often consult YouTube to find the answers to things. For instance, last week I needed to know how to tie a neck tie for an event my son was going to. I looked it up on YouTube and found a very helpful instructional video.

Millions of people are doing the exact same thing at any given time on YouTube and if you can tap into even a fraction of that, you can become successful.

Growing a YouTube channel is not that difficult if you follow these 4 steps. These are the exact things that all the successful YouTubers are doing because it works!

1. Be Consistent

The number one key to building a large following on any social media is to be consistent and this especially applies to YouTube. The more videos you create the greater your chances of getting views which often leads to subscribers.
create consistent content

Another reason to be consistent is because YouTube loves it! They want to see that you are always creating more content and that you are going to stick around a while.

The more videos you create, the more YouTube will start recommending you to viewers as well as rank you higher in the search.

When I first started my channel, I didn’t maintain much consistency and that really hurt me. But once I realized that I needed to constantly be producing content, my subscribers started to increase and my views went up dramatically.

The best way to be consistent is to try to create a new video and upload it every single day. Now this doesn’t make sense for some channels, but it does for most of them. Aim to create a video per day.

One of the things that I do is create a schedule for my week. So for instance, one day I will research all the topics I want to cover that week. Another day I will actually record the videos. And one day I will spend editing them and adding tags and descriptions. Then I set them up to be published… one per day.

Another strategy would be to just record, edit and publish all in one day. Do this every single day and you are good to go. Just do what works best with your own personal schedule. The key is to just keep creating!

2. Create Longer Videos – 7 to 10 minutes at least

The second thing you need to do if you want to grow your YouTube channel is to create longer videos. The point is to keep people on YouTube longer and with videos that last about 10 minutes on average, you will see better rankings within search.

Keep in mind that you want the viewer to watch the entire video and not just leave after 2 minutes, so make sure your content is useful and engaging. grow a youtube channel

A good tip is to tell the viewer that you are going to explain something (or show them something) at the end of the video. Use words like, “stay tuned til the end…” and “at the end of this video I’ll reveal my number one recommendation for….”

Creating listicals (videos that list things out) is another great way to get them to keep watching the entire video. For instance, do a video listing the 5 best cameras for vlogging or 10 websites that save you money. By listing things out, people will be forced to watch so that they can find out what the 5 things in the list are. Make sense?

3. Get More Engagement

Another thing that YouTube really likes is when people engage with your videos. By this I mean that they do more than just watch the video.

Different types of engagement include, liking the video, sharing on social media or email, commenting, and even subscribing. These are all things that you want your viewers to be doing with each and every video you create.

But how do you get people to engage with your videos? I have found that just asking them is a very effective approach. For instance, I will tell viewers to “like” my video if they found it useful. I also ask them to subscribe if they are not already a subscriber to my channel.

⇒  Click Here to Subscribe to My YouTube Channel ⇐

Simply providing a call to action like this actually gets people to take action. A lot of people forget that they can like or share a video, so if you remind them, they will most likely do it.

Asking a question of your viewers during your video is a great way to get people to comment. It can honestly be anything, but try to keep it relevant to the topic if possible.

4. Keep Viewers on YouTube

The final thing you should be doing is providing a way for your viewers to stay on YouTube even longer. Remember that YouTube wants people to stay on their platform… obviously… and rewards those channels that do this.

By adding cards to your videos linking to either one of your other videos or to another YouTuber’s video, keeps people on YouTube longer. You can also utilize the end screens to suggest another video and most people will click on it.

Place links to your other relevant videos within the description area and you might also mention that you have more videos on a particular topic that people can check out.

All of these things will get people to stay on the platform longer and thus give YouTube a reason to like you even more!!

Final Thoughts – Treat YouTube like a Business

Getting over 100k subscribers and massive hours of views may seem daunting, but if you apply these simple steps and remain focused, you WILL see success with YouTube.

The best advice I can give is to treat it like a business. Work hard and work consistently as if you were working a 9 to 5 job. This is after all YOUR business and the effort that you put in is equal to the success that you will achieve.

Leave me a comment below if you have used any of these YouTube techniques to gain more traffic and get more views. I would love to hear about your success.

Make Money Watching Movies – A VolKno Review

Recently I came across a relatively new website where you can actually make money watching videos. Immediately I thought to myself, this is definitely my kind of work!

The website is called VolKno and to be honest it’s not very complicated at all. However there are a few tips and tricks that you will want to be aware of, so make sure you read those in my Pro Tips area. This will help you make the most of your time there.

How to Earn Money at VolKno

The way that VolKno works is that you earn points called “Flow” by watching movie and TV trailers and rating them. Sounds fun right? It is actually.

Not only can you watch movie and TV trailers, but you also have the opportunity to watch and rate games and web shows. The cool thing is that the trailers that you are watching are current or relatively new. So the same trailers that you might see on television or at the movie theaters will be available for you to rate at VolKno.

VolKno get paid to watch movies

Ok, so how does this process work? Like I said earlier, it’s relatively simple. You will be watching a video and then completing 3 rounds of rating.

Round 1: The Hot or Not Round – You will simply rate it as either “Hot” or as “Not”

Round 2: The Emoji Round – This time you will assign emoji’s to the video based on how it makes you feel.

Round 3: The Tag It Round – Here you will be assigning “tags” to the video

There are also a few other things that you will want to do to get the most “flow” points…. please read the Pro Tips to find out what they are.

If you complete all 3 rounds AND the 3 other tips listed in the Pro Tips area, you will accumulate 275 flow points per video. And 1000 flow = $1 USD, so that’s pretty easy to get to if you think about it.

Payout Options – How Will You Get Paid?

As I just mentioned above, 1000 flow points is equal to $1 USD. The minimum payout is 5000 flow, which translates to $5.

Currently the only payout options are through gift cards. But there are 4 different price points to redeem at.

  1. $5 Amazon gift card (redeemable for 5000 flow)
  2. $20 Amazon gift card (redeemable for 20,000 flow)
  3. $50 Amazon gift card (redeemable for 50,000 flow)
  4. $100 Amazon gift card (redeemable for 100,000 flow)

VolKno Redeem Flow

***Now HERE’S WHERE YOU NEED TO REALLY PAY ATTENTION….. Before you can redeem your flow points, you need to Verify Your Address. This is extremely important!!!

So go to your Profile Area and click on the “Address Verification” Tab. Here you will enter your physical address and then they will send you a PIN number through snail mail. It usually only takes about 5 business days to receive.

You will need this PIN number in order to Redeem flow points for the Amazon gift card.

So my advice is to do this verification process immediately upon registering with VolKno so that by the time you have accumulated enough flow points to redeem, you will already have your PIN.

Pro Tips – Maximize Your Earning Potential

There are a couple of things you are going to want to do as soon as you sign up with VolKno that will get you well on your way to earning the maximum flow needed to redeem.

Tip 1: Upon signing up and confirming your email address, you should fill out your profile information. This will automatically give you 1500 Flow Points. It takes less than one minute to do, so DO IT!

Tip 2: Verify Your Physical Address within the profile area so that you can get your PIN needed to redeem your flow points.

Tip 3: When viewing and rating the videos, complete these extra steps to get the full 275 flow per video. Do this AFTER the first round.

Click the DEMAND IT button, choose a fire icon, and choose where you want to see it, click the x

Click the TAG IT button, choose some tags, click the x

Click the COMMENT Button, make a comment, SUBMIT

Then slide the bar either all the way to the right or left to RATE THE VIDEO

      Referral Program – Passive Income

      So currently VolKno has absolutely NO Referral program, which is disappointing but it does have a rather high earning potential that is easy to do so I guess I can forgive this.

      If you’ve been following my website or YouTube channel for a while, you already know that I am a huge proponent of Passive Income, and one great way to get passive income is through Referrals on sites like these. I personally make a lot of passive income through other websites that have referral programs.

      But VolKno doesn’t have one and as far as I know it doesn’t plan on implementing one in the near future. But that’s ok, because I still think it’s a great unique site to make a little extra income.

      How to Join – Get Started Making Money

      Signing up at VolKno is super easy and it’s free! But I would definitely recommend that you fill out your profile info when you first sign up so you get an easy 1500 Flow points right away!!!

      Sign up Here!

      Also remember to verify your physical address so that you get your PIN number before you are ready to redeem your flow points.

      VolKno Address Verification

      My Personal Opinion of VolKno – Is it Worth it?

      While making money online is not always easy, there are times when you come across website platforms that are fun and simple to do. VolKno is one of these sites.

      I love how easy it is to simply watch the video trailers and then rate them with the different tools provided. And not only can you make money here, it’s also fun. I enjoy watching the videos and it also gives me ideas of movies I might want to check out in the future.

      The time it takes to perform these rating tasks is not very difficult. In fact you can have the video running on another tab and continue doing work elsewhere. Just remember to click back to it in order to rank each one.

      I Just Made $15 with Paidviewpoint

      Ok, so I’ve talked about Paidviewpoint before on this website and it is no secret that I am a big fan. It is one of the easiest and fastest ways to make extra money online!

      But they have recently changed the minimum amount required to cashout to only $15. I believe it used to be $20 which still wasn’t bad at all.

      I just cashed out my current earnings of $15.33 and I am already on my way to earning another $15 (and more)! I’ve actually earned over $150 using this one website so far.

      For those of you who are unfamiliar with Paidviewpoint (and it’s awesomeness), let me explain the way it works.

      Sign Up for a Free Account


      The way to get started earning your first $15 is to sign up for a free account.

      It’s super easy and only requires your email address and a password. As with most reward sites, it is completely free to sign up and a great way to earn extra money.

      Fill Out Your Information – (Aka Demographics)

      Once you have registered, you will want to fill out your demographics. This lets Paidviewpoint know more about you so that it can tailor the surveys to you.

      The information they ask for is pretty basic…

      • Male or Female
      • Birthdate
      • Household income
      • Education level
      • Relationship status
      • Children
      • Country of Origin

      As I said, this information is used to tailor the surveys for you. For instance, if you don’t have any children, they will probably not give you many surveys asking you about Children’s Toys, etc.


      Be sure to answer all of these questions because it will give you the best chance of getting more surveys, which results in more money!!!

      Don’t worry, if things change (let’s say you get married or have a child) you can always go in and update your demographics to reflect that.

      Build Up Your TraitScore

      The key to getting more pay per survey is to build up your TraitScore. The TraitScore is used to determine if you are being honest in your answers and really taking the time to go through the survey and not just click on the first thing you see.

      The higher your TraitScore, the more money you will earn per survey. You will also start to get more surveys available to you as your Score increases.

      The goal is to get a TraitScore of 9000 or higher. I easily made it to 10000 by just answering the TraitScore surveys as they came up and staying true to my answers. By the way, you do get paid for taking TraitScore surveys. It’s about $0.10 per survey, so it’s worth it.

      Paidviewpoint Traitscore

      Take Surveys and Start Earning $$$

      So let’s get to the reason we are all here… to make money!! While you do earn money for taking the TraitScore surveys, you earn even more for the regular surveys.

      The surveys are typically around 10-15 questions and only take about 1-2 minutes to complete. The pay can range from $0.20 to $1.50 per survey.

      The reason I love Paidviewpoint so much is because the surveys they give you are already prequalified. So in other words, you don’t have to try to qualify for the survey beforehand only to waste your time when they tell you that you don’t meet the criteria for that survey.

      So every time there is a survey waiting for you, you are guaranteed to make money with it. Just complete the survey and collect the money.

      If you check out the video at the end of this post, you will see an example of the typical survey available. Like I said, they are extremely easy!

      As I mentioned before, the minimum to cashout is $15 and you can choose to get paid with PayPal, Amazon, or a Walmart gift card.

      Pro Tip: Be sure to stay logged in to your Paidviewpoint account and check it often (I usually check in the morning, at lunch, and in the evening). The surveys will be available only for a limited time. So you want to check often so you can take as many as possible.

      Watch How I Cashed Out My Most Recent $15

      So yesterday I uploaded a video of my most recent cash out with Paidviewpoint. I was able to get paid through my PayPal account as that is the option I chose.

      In the video below, I also walk you through a short survey so you can get an idea of what they are typically like.

      A Day in the Life of a Blogger

      Being a full time blogger is rewarding but also difficult to balance sometimes. Being able to work for yourself and set your own schedule seems like the ideal situation, but if you don’t structure it correctly, you could find yourself more stressed out and not very productive.

      I have been blogging for over 5 years now, and I have to admit that I struggled at first to find my rhythm within the industry. I was juggling kids, home, and starting a new business. But once I developed a schedule that truly worked for me, I started to see progress and experienced less stress.

      This is just my personal schedule that works for my life. It’s not perfect by any means, but I’m always fine-tuning it and discovering ways I can increase productivity without sacrificing time.

      Mornings – Must Start with Coffee

      Let’s be honest, I have a slight addiction to coffee… I like regular coffee, espresso, bulletproof, and even cold brew in the summer. So it’s a given that my mornings must start with a cup of coffee.

      I usually wake up around 5:30am, make coffee, wake up my son for track practice, and then start my day.

      After my first cup (or 3) of coffee, I usually sit down and plan out my day with my journal. I love journals because they keep me focused on what needs to get done and also help me to see what I’ve accomplished already.

      I will typically write out a task list for the day, starting with the most important project and prioritizing down to the last task. I list the most important tasks first so that I make sure to get them done right off the bat.

      After creating my daily task list, I get started checking them off. Sometimes I have bills I need to pay, and other times I have blog research to do.

      Here’s what a typical morning looks like for me:

      5:30am: Wake up, make bed, make coffee, work on journal and task list

      6:15am: Take son to school, read a few pages from the current book I’m reading (right now it’s Legendary Marketer)

      7:00am: Begin working on task list, do keyword research for next blog post, structure/outline blog post

      9:00am: Start creating content for blog post

      11:00am: Gather links to add to blog post as well as relevant images or video

      Afternoons – Getting Stuff Done

      While mornings are spent preparing for the day and usually writing content for my blog, my afternoons are filled with checking off the remaining tasks that need to be done.

      This could be creating a YouTube video based on the blog post I wrote that morning, or spending some time answering emails and checking on my affiliate programs.

      Currently I am trying to be more consistent and grow my YouTube Channel so I am usually recording a video and editing it in the afternoons. My goal right now is to upload every day for a full 30 days in a row.

      Around 3pm, I usually have to go pick up my youngest son from school unless he has after-school activities that day. But once I get back home, I pick up wherever I left off and continue working.

      So here’s what my typical afternoon might consist of:

      • Publishing Blog Post (written that morning)
      • Recording and Editing YouTube Video
      • Answering Emails
      • Uploading video to YouTube
      • Marketing previous blog posts on Pinterest, Twitter, FB, etc
      • Picking up Son from school
      • Eating a keto friendly lunch

      Evenings – Changes on a Daily Basis

      So as you can imagine, my evenings are usually spent winding down and spending time with my family. I make dinner on some nights and others I go to my kids school events like choir concerts, track meets, etc.

      I also spend time preparing for my next day. I once again sit down with my journal and write down tasks that I know I need to accomplish and also reflect on the ones that I actually got done during the current day. I also brainstorm ideas for my next blog post or video.

      Another thing I tend to do in the evenings is work on my daily housework list. I have a schedule set up where I clean 2-3 rooms per day throughout the entire week. This keeps me from having to spend one whole day JUST cleaning the house.

      Weekends – Still Grinding

      So when it comes to the weekends, I usually still try to get work done. Of course, it’s not as structured as during the week, but I will try to compose at least 1 blog post throughout the weekend and record a few videos for the YouTube.

      A lot of times I am actually traveling across the great state of Texas. But even when I’m traveling, I will sit down for an hour or two and work on my business. I think of it like this… I’m able to travel BECAUSE I am a full time blogger, so I should at least put some work in when I can.

      I will typically wake up (and have coffee of course) in the hotel and sit down at my computer for some quality work time. After about 2 hours of solid work, it’s about time that things start opening and I make my way out into the world to enjoy whatever city I happen to be in.

      When I’m at home for the weekend, I do the same thing. I dedicate about 2-3 hours a day to work on my business and then I spend the rest of the time working around the house and dining out with my family.

      A Day in the Life of a Blogger – Be Your Own Boss

      My days are not always the same, but this is a typical scenario in my life. The beauty of being your own boss is that you can set whatever schedule works for you and it can change at will.

      I like having structure and that usually makes me more productive and helps me stay on task. But I know other bloggers who just wake up, blog if they feel like it, and then spend the day playing frisbee in the park. That works for them and that’s great!

      The point is, do what works for you. You may have younger kids that need more of your attention… or you may not have kids at all. Structure your business in a way that allows you to succeed at business AND at life (whatever your life looks like).

      Also, I will end by saying that in order to be successful at anything you need to put in the work. So don’t just think you are going to be able to sit on your couch watching reruns of Friends all day long and have a successful business. Blogging certainly gives you the ability to have more freedom in your life, but you need to be careful how you implement that freedom.

      Don’t let it get in the way of your dreams and your overall success. Work hard and the payoff will be extremely rewarding!

      What is UserCrowd – How to Make Extra Cash

      My UserCrowd Review

      Making extra cash online is actually possible and easier than you think. While you won’t make millions, you can make enough to pay for one of your monthly bills or save up for something you really want.

      Some people think that everything online is a scam and not worth your time. I have seen it all… scams, legit websites, and sites that are just not worth it.

      But when I ran across UserCrowd I knew it was LEGIT…

      I am always on the lookout for ways to make money online…. quick and easy ways as well as full time income opportunities. But recently I came across a new website that offers pay for taking short (I mean really short) tests/surveys.

      I’m sure you have tried out a survey site that promises great money in return for taking a survey…. only to waste your time realizing that you are “not qualified” for the survey. I HATE when that happens!!

      Immediately after signing up with UserCrowd, I realized that this was different and not likely to waste my time. Every survey/test was quick (less than 4 questions and 2 minutes tops).

      My Review: Here’s My Thoughts and Opinions On UserCrowd…

      Sign up is easy and only takes a few minutes. Fill out a few details about yourself and establish a log in and you are good to go.

      One thing that I would recommend is that you set up notifications for when tests are available. The reason this is important is because the tests are only available for a short amount of time. Once they have enough responses the test will no longer be available.


      So you want to be sure to get notified of when there is a chance to make some money. You can easily do this by going to the settings area and clicking on notifications. This will notify you even if you don’t have UserCrowd open in a window. There is also an option to receive an email notification. Simply choose which one you want and set up the hours of the day that you wish to be notified.

      Once a test is available, you just click on the button and you will be taken to the question area. Most of the time the tests are about web page layouts or mobile application functions or brand logos. For example, you will be asked to look at several logo designs for a product and then choose which one you like best. That’s it!!

      For this simple test, you usually receive anywhere from $0.10 to $0.20. That’s quite a lot if you consider that these tests take less than a minute to complete. Other tests that have multiple questions (usually no more than about 5) can bring in about $0.60 per test.

      It is very easy to build up your balance to the minimum required for payout (currently $10). I have been averaging $10 every week or so.

      UserCrowd Payout

      Payments are made through PayPal, which makes it very convenient and easy. I simply request a payout once I reach the $10 minimum balance and it gets deposited to my account within a few days. In the meantime, I continue taking tests and build my balance up again.

      UserCrowd Compared With Inbox Dollars

      I like to use several different survey/task sites to earn extra money and one of the other websites I use on a daily basis is Inbox Dollars. Each site has its own unique attributes which is why I like them and have them in my portfolio.

      What makes UserCrowd different from a site like Inbox Dollars is that you can only make money from one source (taking tests). With Inbox Dollars, you can earn money several different ways.

      However, you don’t get paid very much with Inbox Dollars. It takes a lot longer to get to their minimum payout of $30. They also pay through a written check, which takes a little longer as it has to go through the mail.

      Personally, I think UserCrowd is slightly better than Inbox Dollars because you can earn money so much quicker and quite frankly easier.

      Don’t get me wrong, Inbox Dollars is a great resource and I’ve earned a lot of money with them. They also have a referral program that allows you to earn even more by referring others to join. UserCrowd does not have this option (at this time).

      UserCrowd Pros & Cons

      As with any program, there are pros and cons that need to be evaluated. With UserCrowd, there really aren’t too many cons. It’s simply a way to earn a little extra money.


      • It’s extremely easy to earn money
      • Short tests
      • Pay per test is between $0.10 – $0.60
      • Minimum to cashout is only $10
      • Payment through PayPal


      • Tests are only available for a short time (first come first serve)
      • No referral program

      My Results From Using UserCrowd

      I have only been using UserCrowd to make extra money online for about 5 months, however I’ve already cashed out 7 times and at the time of writing this I’ve made over $74.

      I feel like I could have made a lot more if I had realized sooner that I need to set up notifications and make sure to take the tests as soon as they are available. This is super important and why I mentioned it earlier.

      Now I understand that I’m not going to become a millionaire using this platform, but that’s not my goal here. I just want to quickly and easily be able to make a little extra cash and UserCrowd is the perfect website to do this.

      My full time income comes from my Affiliate Marketing business, so I’m not expecting UserCrowd to pay my bills or anything. If you are looking to create a full time passive income online than I suggest you check out the program that I use… It’s called Wealthy Affiliate and it has everything you need to build a successful online business.

      Conclusion: UserCrowd is an Easy Way to Make Extra Money

      Making money online doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, with websites like UserCrowd, you can easily make money by spending just a few minutes per day on the site.

      Obviously this is not going to be enough to make a full time income, but we all could use a little extra money from time to time and when it is this easy, I don’t know why you wouldn’t give it a try.

      The way I look at it is that if I see a quarter or a dollar bill on the sidewalk, I take the time to walk over and pick it up. It’s money after all. No its not going to pay my mortgage, but its still money that I can spend. The same is true of UserCrowd… just spend a little time taking a few tests and before you know it you have a little pocket change.

      As I mentioned before, I use a combination of several websites like UserCrowd in order to build up an even bigger amount of pocket change. The all add up in the end and the ones that I use only take a little bit of my time.

      Here’s a list of a few of my favorites:

      1. Paid Viewpoint
      2. Inbox Dollars
      3. Crowdtap
      4. Slice the Pie
      5. Swagbucks

      Want to Make a Full Time Income Online?

      If pocket change is not going to cut it for you and you are interested in building a business that will give you a full time online passive income, then feel free to check out my #1 Recommendation.

      This is the exact program that I used to build my online business and quit my 9-5 job. I now work from home (or wherever I am traveling) and have the freedom and life I’ve always wanted.
