You can work at home to pay for college.

I have been writing about college, scholarships, grants and so forth for a while now and I will continue to share items of interest about college occasionally. But as of now my focus is to give specific information on how you can pay for college, either for yourself or your kids, by working at your own business, primarily home based.

Anyone can get a job working for someone else. Most people do and it’s perfectly good.  However, as a busy single mom, you need more time an more money than a trade dollars for hours job can provide.

If you’re interested in keeping your current job and making extra income by working at home, great.  If you need to get a day job for a while, then by all means take care of yourself.  Hopefully soon you’ll become so successful that you won’t have to keep the regular job if you don’t want to.  Then you can do whatever it is you want, travel with your kids and stay in nice places and not have to worry about the expenses, pay for college, whatever.

Working for yourself to pay for college can be a huge struggle.

If you’ve found something that has really made you successful financially overnight, I want to know about it. So send me an email.  I have found that any reward is going to take effort.  But the great thing about having a leveraged business is that the rewards can be larger than your input over time if you plan well. And you get to keep them.

Looking forward to sharing what I learn about how to pay for college in the hopes in will benefit you too.

money for collegeLet’s focus on leveraging your talents. Anybody can get a job. It’s what most of us were taught and all we know. Stepping outside the box we can try new ways of living.


If you are a professional, have you ever explored writing an e-book about your field of expertise? If well written, it could provide a new income stream, instead of you selling out your time serving your clients. The effect is leveraged once you build your automatic system for making the transaction and advertising.


You can repeat the process each time you create new information products.  After time you could build a membership site and offer all of your great products and ideas to loyal customers that will pay a small monthly fee to have access to your great information.


How about a computer programmer? You can come out with your own revolutionary product instead of selling your ideas to the company you work for. How about making a small utility program that helps out internet entrepreneurs? You could design an easy to use program that generates friends in multiple Web 2.0 sites.


How about real estate, instead of selling houses, you can pool financial sources to buy houses cheap, increase their value and sell them off at a higher price. It just takes a little time and research to find good ideas and locations. And watch the market so you can time your purchases for gain, not loss.


Is money a problem? Seek out loans if you can take the risk. Pool money from many investors or seek a grant. The sky is the limit when it comes to making money.


Sometimes your credit card company will offer short term, no interest loans for about 6 months.  This might be a great way to generate short term cash for a specific project. However, do not take this offer is you are not able to pay it off before the due date.  The interest penalty is usually huge and defeats the purpose of making money.


So once you’ve decided on a way to have time and money then you are free to explore the creative ideas category to its fullest.  You’ll have the time and money to do it.
