For non-tech people (myself included), web design can cause a lot of stress. And stress means opportunity. If you have a knack for web design or web development, you should definitely be capitalizing on it. And since it’s such a foreign concept for many, it can be a really lucrative side hustle. You can find all sorts of gigs on Upwork. Also, you need to read this article: How to Make $5,000+ a Month Building Websites Part-Time
I suspect there’s a lot of selection bias in those numbers, ie who are you/Bloomberg asking (or who is willing to divulge what they make)? For example, Google/Facebook. Yes, some engineers at those companies are most certainly making 6-figure salaries, but the majority of those companies are not engineers and are definitely not making anywhere near that. As far as the millions in stock, that’s a total pipe dream. Sure, a few of the lucky (and super talented) engineers that got in on the ground floor may have a hefty amount of options, but the vast majority likely have much more modest amounts. Don’t get me wrong, they are both great companies to work for (I have had the opportunity to work for both at one time or another), but they’re not the millionaire-makers everyone paints them to be. :)
Travel blogging is a hard industry to break into. However, the rewards can be worth it, and let’s face it, who doesn’t want to be paid for traveling around the world! There are numerous ways to monetize a travel blog, but affiliate marketing should predominantly be your focus. On your blog, promote hotels, tours, equipment hire services, flights, and anything else travel related. Then take a cut of the proceeds as your audience books their holidays based on your recommendations.
Money is just a barometer, often a poor one, of your successes in what you are doing. Money is just an outcome of your overall efforts in your field. You will often hear people saying, "Don't chase money. There is nothing in money. Don't work too hard for money" and stuffs like that. But look around. Everyone is working hard. Everyone is working tirelessly. Everyone is going an extra mile and each one of them started not because they want to get rich, but because it is a matter of survival. Either you do and earn some money or you don't do anything and beg for money. Then there is this competition. Either you do better/more or get perished. Whatever you are doing right now can be done in better ways by many other people. So you put up efforts to stay relevant/ahead. When Google arrived on the scense, there were other search engines. They didn't innovate. Google came with better solution. Now rest of them are extinct. What if Google stop innovating? They too will go extinct. Larry and Sergy would see their fortunes dipping in matter of months.
How many email newsletters are you bombarded with every single day? There’s a reason for that. Marketing to an actively interested group of email subscribers is one of the best ways to make money online. There have even been million-dollar businesses built from simple email newsletters like TheSkimm, or Mister Spoils. Each newsletter targets a specific type of user with interesting, daily content, while also partnering with relevant companies and affiliates to bring in extra money. If this seems daunting, it’s not. Tools like MailChimp, Seva (formerly ConvertKit), AWeber, and ActiveCampaign, make it easier than ever to get started with email marketing.
Rather than making money through subscriptions, YouTube channels are based on a traditional advertising system. Meaning the more viewers you get, the more you make. Once you’re approved for the YouTube Partner Program and can start including ads on your videos, with every 1,000 views, you will make approximately $2-$4. Which might not seem like a lot, but if you have 100 videos with 5,000 views a month each, that would be $1,000–$2,000 already. Just imagine if your videos start hitting millions of views!
27. Sponsored/paid posts – Many blogs publish sponsored and paid posts. Sponsored posts are basically just posts about a specific brand, product or service. A company will pay you to publish an article about it. It’s similar with other paid posts as well. Your basically selling the spot for the article on your site. If you decide to take this route, you’ll want to build your traffic before you will get many offers.
One factor that you must be aware of though is that Care.com is a peer-to-peer arrangement. That means that you will be in direct competition with other pet sitters in your area. You must price your services competitively in order to get business. Once you begin to develop a list of regular clients, you will be in a better position to raise your rates. This will be particularly true as you get referrals from those customers.
So, where are we supposed to turn to make money the legitimate way online?

it is true that restaurants remain packed, but how many have shut down in recent times? i look around me and i see more have shut down than have started/opened. hypothetically a 15% decline in people that dine out to eat and a 20% restaurant shut down would still give the appearance that they are all packed. But what about the 15% who are no longer dining out?

I don't hunk there's anything wrong with wanting to make lots of money. But once you have achieved that will you just keep doing the same thing tirelessly? Or, would you like to enjoy the benefits of making a lot of money? My point is this. Do something that will enrich you, not just richen you. Because, when you have completed this task what will be your legacy? I believe; in the end most people want to accomplish something more than just making a lot of money. Though making a lot of money can be a byproduct of doing something that brings you and others happiness. When you die the last things you will have are your conscience and your memories. By that point the money won't matter anymore.

Once you’ve gathered a list, put together a template outreach email (as you’ll be doing this over and over) that’s short and clear with expectations. Tell your potential interviewee who you are, what your podcast is about, and what you’re asking of them. Do a few test interviews with friends and family to make sure everything is being recorded at the quality you want and then book your first episode.
Reduce monthly debt payments: Not all of us are in such a dire situation that we can just have our debt forgiven. However, you can cut your payments by up to 80% by refinancing. Most credit cards have interest rates above 25% and Even Financial’s listed loans are as low as 5%. It wont change the amount of your debt, but it can reduce your monthly payment significantly.
High-ticket consulting or coaching: You could sell your own high-ticket consulting or coaching products from your website.

Yeah, you just live in a special part of the country. Tech. is doing very well and money are flowing again in Silicon Valley. Other parts of the countries are still down in the dump.

My company is still getting rid of older more experience engineers so they can hire cheap new college grad. replacements.

Noticeably absent from my list is “blogging”. I enjoy blogging and sharing with readers ways to save money, inspiring success stories and of course geek culture. However, blogging is not the path to quick money online. Despite what many bloggers and peddlers of courses may suggest, blogging is very hard work and it takes a sizable audience to make even a modest return.
