Have you ever tried to get healthier and lose weight, but lost motivation before reaching your goals?

Is KashKick legit? 

“Get paid to have fun,” the ads claim. But does the platform deliver?

Here’s what we found: Yes, you can make money with KashKick, but not all their earning options are created equal.

prolific review

Prolific Review: How to Make an Easy $200 a Month Participating in Research Studies is an online research platform that pays you for your opinion and feedback.

It’s a legit and easy way to make money online that pays much better than “micro task” sites like Clickworker and Mechanical Turk.

respondent paid research studies Review: Can You Really Make $100 An Hour For Your Opinion?

Unlike most online survey companies, Respondent actually pays “real” money for participating in studies.

Inside the Sharetown Mattress Return Pickup and Resale Side Hustle

For the past couple years, I’ve seen a few people talking about their side hustle picking up “bed in a box” mattresses. They say it’s something you can do part time and the pay is great.

After that, though, the details become more and more scarce.

How does it all work? Where does the money come from? What’s the catch?

cashwalk app review

Cashwalk App Review: Get $50 for Tracking Your Steps

Cashwalk is my latest money-making app find. It pays you for tracking your steps, and I earned my first $5 Amazon gift card in about 3 weeks. But the process isn’t completely passive, which might make it not worth your while.

fundrise review

Fundrise Review: My $100,000 Commercial Real Estate Side Hustle

In 2015, I started building what I call “my cash flow portfolio.” This is a specific set of investments designed first and foremost to generate interest and dividends.

My thinking was: how can I get paid over and over again from work I do once?

And by investing for cash flow, I could turn every “extra” $1,000 I earned into $20-80 a year in truly passive income … forever.

caden app

Caden App Review: Earn $150 From Your Data?

Is the Caden app worth an install?

The app promises to pay you for the data you generate on a daily basis. You know, the stuff we give to Big Tech for free!

And Caden really does pay — it took a couple months to earn my first $40 payout.
