Make Money

Saving and frugality are key elements of financial independence, but they can only get you so far if the numbers aren’t working on the income side of the equation.

Pursuing new ways to make money is a smart move for a few different reasons. The obvious one, of course, is that you’ll be able to increase your earnings and devote more money to savings and investments. But beyond that, you’ll get to explore different types of skills and side gigs and diversify your income streams so you’re not reliant on a single job, company, or career.

With many of the strategies we cover in the posts below, you’ll be able to start generating passive (or semi-passive) income that requires little ongoing effort. With others, you’ll be able to find remote work so you can consider geo-arbitrage to bring your cost
of living down.

Whether you’re a teenager, a stay-at-home mom, a 9-to-5 worker looking to add night and weekend work, or someone struggling to choose a direction, we want to help you find ideas to make money that clicks for you. Start browsing our articles on how to make money below.
