4 Ways to Join the YouEconomy

Tip No. 1: Direct Selling

Direct selling, also known as network marketing, can be a great way to make some extra cash. With direct selling, the groundwork is laid out for you. Companies provide the product, ways to market, support and technical resources. It’s just up to you to sell.

Tip No. 2: Online Marketing

Earn money without even leaving your home. Online marketers don’t sell their own products. Instead, they help sell other people’s goods. By building an online presence and working with an affiliate arrangement, you can be on your way to making some side cash.

Tip No. 3: Side Gig

If teaching barre or boxing excites you but you still love your day job, try getting a part-time gig. Plenty of people still hold down their full-time jobs while teaching a handful of fitness classes each week. If you dream of starting a business, trying launching it on the side while you hold down your main job.

Tip No.4: Online Education

If you’d like to leave your full-time job but aren’t sure what’s the best fit for you, try taking some free online educational courses. We recommend the websites Udemy and Skillshare, both of which offer free online video courses for everything from getting started with email marketing to photography. Courses by SUCCESS Academy can power the personal growth and motivation you need to reach your potential.
