I don’t know about you, but, as a child, I had a lot of dreams about what I would be when I “grew up.” When I got to college, however, I realized that I was not really qualified to be competitive for certain things, based on my lack of experience.
I ended up choosing to be a nurse. My mom had been a nurse, and my sister. It was extremely practical and versatile.
Working in the Emergency Room for 10 years was quite the adventure, and I can honestly say I enjoyed that time in my life. Heck—I even found a husband 😉
Unlike some of my colleagues, however, nursing was never my passion. So when our situation allowed, I quit to stay home with our young (and yet to be born) children. I ended up staying home with them (we homeschooled) for the next 18 years or so!
When they started to need me less as teens, I began to be interested in earning money again. However, going back into nursing was not appealing—not only had so much changed in the medical field, but I wanted to maintain control of my schedule.
So I started looking into creating online business. This was back in 2007-2008. I decided that I would create a blog (
this blog) that shared my positive world perspective and thoughts about all the ways life was good.
Blogging can be quite lucrative if you know what you’re doing. Unfortunately, I did not 🙂 I started exploring and getting on all sorts of people’s lists…who knew there were so MANY different online business models? And so much to know about each one. I did my best implementing all this new info, but I was so overwhelmed with ideas and choices and strategies.
Truth be told, my heart was not really in many of these efforts (aside from The Good News Cafe). I would get drawn in, much like when I chose to pursue nursing, for utilitarian reasons—simply to make money. Many of these choices had to do with marketing and business—two areas of learning that were new to me. And I’m not really good at either of them!
One day, frustrated at my lack of success after so much time and effort, I came across a business model that made perfect sense to me and one that fit my strengths and personality much better!
You’ve likely heard this quote before (or something like it): “Do what you love and you will never work another day in your life.”
Well, that’s exactly what happens when you turn your passion or interests into a membership site! What are your hobbies, interests, and pastimes? What do you like to do in your “free” time?
How would you like to share what you know with like-minded individuals and get recurring, monthly payments?
The big names using this model have made crazy big incomes—ever heard of Lynda.com? She had a membership learning site that sold to Linked In for $1.5BILLION dollars!
Of course, that’s an extreme case 🙂
STILL, it’s quite reasonable to expect to earn a good income—even an
amazing income— by sharing information that you know and are involved with anyway for FUN!
Are YOU ready to have fun in your work life?

Creating and selling journals is a lot of fun! I have just started this myself. This
course by Sue Fleckenstein is a good one–uses Power Point. I highly recommend it!

Noah St John has a great success story (as does anyone who has “made it,” really :)) Here is my
Soon I will post a review of this program, but, meanwhile, if you want to hear about it from Noah himself, interview with Noah. !

Simple Cash Daily (created by Bill Anderson) has created a new system that Bill calls
The Perfect System 🙂
Essentially it’s a membership site, but Bill does all the advertising (you can do some if you want also) and he guarantees you
at least 5 members in 6 months, 30 members within a year. By the end of the year you are earning $480/month for each membership you purchase.
And, of course, you can end up with even MORE than the minimum and then you’d be earning
good money. Being guaranteed members is a big deal, and recurring income is a great blessing!
Check it out!
BTW, I just did an interview with Bill–his is an interesting story 🙂 Read it
*Update March 2020-I have 22 people/members. This is working great 🙂
*Update September 2020–I got a fair amount more than the 30 promised members. I think this is due to the fact that I share the Bill Interview and promote a bit in social media. Easiest money I have ever earned…and consistent! Highly recommended!
*Update March 2021 The pandemic did effect this some. Bill has had to loosen the timed-fulfillment guarantee. 😔 But as things improve, he hopes to revive that. Still, it’s been earning consistently for me.
Instant Online Startups, Prosperity Method #6
This is something that was created in response to people looking to make money online as a result of a need related to cornona virus job loss–but, of course, these ideas are suited to
! ANY time
It was written by a guy named Nick James. And you can use it in one of two ways…you can pay $10 to him and have all the program ideas that link to products changed to your affiliate ID (which I have done :)) Or you can just take the info he shares and implement the ideas without getting the programs–there’s enough there to get started 🙂

Amazon KDP, Prosperity Method #7
One method mentioned in the report above is self-publishing on Amazon. I actually
have a fair number of books and journals etc…listed and earn a bit of money each month. I have not published anything that sells a lot to date–which is why a program might be useful. 🙂 There are a lot of programs out there–this one helps to get you started quickly: 24 Hour Book ….worth a look! 🙂
7K Metals, Prosperity Method #8
When I was a kid, my parents collected silver and gold coins and krugerands. So I have always had an affinity for precious metals. More recently a friend of mine (seen in these videos) joined a program
that not only sells you coins at a discount, but they help you earn otherwise with a team. A system is being put in place to help you get to $500/week with no real effort. It’s new and in progress, but very cool! (7K metals)
As I come across other ways to make money, I will share them. I have had some success thus far, but nothing major. I am learning right along with you in this area 🙂 This web-site has been my primary focus…and it’s been a long road, but a happy journey 🙂 Stay tuned!
