Make Money: Tips & Advice on How to Make Extra Money

As the saying goes, money makes the world go round. This blog is dedicated to helping you manage your personal finances more efficiently. However, I also want to help you make more money.

At xUSD, making money is one of five key personal finance topics. By focusing on these topics you’ll be in a strong position to manage your personal finances, and build wealth. The other topics are:

Save Money

How to save more money even if you think you can’t


Learn how to make a budget and manage it like a pro

Pay Off Debt

Proven and effective ways to pay off your debt faster


Become an investor and let your money work for you


They all have an important role to play in helping you to become a 5-Star Money Maven.

Making money is the starting point. Without money there’s nothing to manage. I believe personal finance isn’t only about managing your money. It’s also about finding ways to make more money. This way you’ll be able to save and invest more money, and pay off your debt faster.

Making extra money doesn’t mean you have to get a second or third job. There are many ways you can earn money part-time from the comfort of your own home. It’s also possible that, in time, you can turn it into a full-time income.

Note: There are many get-rich-quick schemes on the internet. Don’t fall for it… It something seems too good to be true, it normally is. Building a successful online business (part-time or full-time) takes time and hard work. But it’s worth it.

I will not cover any ways you can make money online unless I have done it myself or are 100% sure it’s legit.

To get started, I suggest you read about the 7 best ways to make money online and the best way to start a profitable blog.
