I’m a school teacher (AP Physics). I’m a coach of 3 different sports (Cross Country, Swimming, and Track). I attend graduate school (FHSU). And most importantly, I’m a father to two awesome little boys.
All in all, I don’t have a lot of free time.
That being said, I teach in Oklahoma. We’re consistently ranked in the bottom 3 when it comes to teacher pay. In fact as of today, I haven’t had a raise in over 7 years while my workload has increased over 20%.
So it’s kind of a catch 22. I love what I do but I’d like to make more money. But I always thought in order to make more money it would require more time. I don’t want to give up anymore of my time away from my boys to make more money.
And then I learned that I didn’t have to give up more of my time to make more money. I discovered that there were companies out there that were willing to pay me for doing nearly nothing and/or exactly what I was already doing. There are literally dozens of companies that fit this description. Individually most of these companies weren’t willing to pay me more than a few cents a day. However, by “working” for several of them I was able to provide a sizable supplement to my income.
In this guide I will do the following:
- Explain my strategy
- Explain what type of companies and programs will pay you passively.
- List all the programs and apps I use (and where possible show proof of payment).
- Break the programs and apps I use up into categories based on time involvement.
- Highlight strategies and programs that I do not take any part in.
Feel free to skip to whichever part of the guide you’re interested in, or follow along as I explain my strategy.
