Jobs For Felons – Three Nontraditional Ways to Make Money
Traditionally, making money for most people means working for someone else at a company; getting a set salary and reporting to a location day after day from 8-5 or some other traditional hours. But how do you make money as a felon when employers don’t want to hire anyone who has a criminal record?
The answer is you CREATE your own job! Seriously, working for yourself means that nobody looks into your background, looks over your shoulder, tells you how much you can earn, when to work or what to do. It means complete financial freedom and a way to rebuild your life.
Creating your own job is as easy as using the computer. Let’s take a look at three possibilities that can earn you money today:
Do you have specific technical skills?
Become a freelancer: Freelancers perform technical jobs for companies who need a project done but don’t want to hire employees. If you have writing, editing, data entry or web development experience then you can earn up to $6,000 per month as a freelancer. Many companies contract with specialized clearing houses for jobs instead of advertising and hiring employees. All of these clearing houses charge a fee to access the jobs but the money you make more than covers the cost. Furthermore, if you are not sure if you qualify or have the skills you can sign up for free trials or $1.00 trials so there isn’t a lot to risk by trying them out. I found a job answering emails that paid over $300 for about 4 hours worth of work. If you have the skills this is by far the easiest way to start out on your own.
What if you don’t have technical skills?
Affiliate Marketing: There are thousands of companies looking to make it BIG selling products on the internet. One of the ways Amazon, Google, eBay and other corporations use to make their billions of dollars every month is by paying affiliates to sell their products. Did you know there are millions of people selling products for these and other companies and all make serious money as affiliates? Better yet there are no background checks, you are free to sell or promote whatever you want.
Now being an affiliate is challenging and there are some expenses you will incur, however, there is only one place that offers support, training and minimum initial cost.

How would you like a lesson on how to make money from someone who made over $100,000 last year? No problem. Have a question?

As an affiliate marketer you can sell products all day long and once you learn the ropes the money just keeps rolling in.
Need money today?
Get Paid To: The fastest way to make money online, although, not the kind of money you can make as a Freelancer or Affiliate Marketer is through what’s called “Get Paid To” or GPT. There are a ton of GPT sites but most of them require you to answer surveys to qualify you to answer more surveys. Then, you answer another survey and you might get paid to answer the final survey $2.00, but you’ve already wasted and hour filling out all of the surveys. It’s not very productive. However, if you need money right now and go in with the understanding that you are only going to make a few hundred dollars then GPT is good for getting paid. The easiest GPT site that pays right away is Treasure Trooper. The last I checked they were giving away money just for signing up with them, how easy is that?
