Great stuff. Yeah today with the Internet and it being a worldwide marketplace now there is no reason for people to start to create additional income for themselves and family.

This is really good stuff, I didn't know there were so many options! I don't know about full replacement income, but I know you can make extra cash online without having to spend any money. I use kashpointz they pay you just to participate, it's not a ton of money but it's super easy!

Awesome article! I totally agree but sometimes I think it can be important to have at least a part-time job. When I was attending university I worked a part time job at the front desk and it certainly helped me make some walk around money that was steady. Also a lot of the time with these jobs you can make your own schedule.

Another thing I did where I made a surprising amount of money was just selling my used books and dvds and stuff online. Here is the link of the site I used if anyone is interested: its free and basically you could sell just about anything and it does a price comparison from different sites to show which will offer you the most money for your stuff.

I would also recommend being productive and joining a lot of extracurricular clubs and intramural sports if that is something you are into. I think in college you really find out how important it is to meet people and network, I made some money doing freelance work for a production company simply because I made friends with a guy whose dad owned the company. I would never have met him if I wasnt involved in a entrepreneurial club at my university. I would def recommend getting involved.

This article was great, if you take advantage of this stuff you will be fine! and have multiple means of income.
