3 Important things to realize before you start making money online.

3 Important things to realize before you start making money online.

I’ve spent years making money online. The fact that it didn’t work out was of course due to a number of factors. As stubborn as I was, I just rumbled on and kept hoping it would work out. I also knew that I was going to succeed in the end, I felt that and I wanted to work hard for that too, but if you ignore a number of factors, it really won’t work.

So to make sure that it will take you a lot of time before you can start making money, I will give you a few factors that you should think carefully about before you start something.

3 Important things to realize before you start making money online.

I actually did what other internet entrepreneurs around me did. But why did they get their bins of money and not me? Very frustrating I can tell you, but that are lessons. I was only concerned with the fact that I wanted to make money from it and that is the wrong way of thinking. You achieve nothing with that.

I will now share with you what was really a changeover for me. It has definitely changed my business for me. I now do what I like and I earn my income from it.

I focused on too many things at once. I have a big disadvantage and that is that I like a lot of things to do and was actually busy with many things at the same time. Because of this I lost focus and nothing came off. So I had nothing to offer my customers either. Do you also suffer from this, then this is the first tip:

Do what you really like and focus on it.

Make choices and don’t keep doing everything. It can be a few things, as long as you can fully focus on these things.

These factors really make a difference to you if you want to be successful:

1. Do what you like. I started doing what I like. I was always trying to figure out what I could make money with and then you have the wrong focus. I came up with many ideas and saw a lot in others. I thought “I can do that too”. I started that fanatically on an Ebook or a guide and I was convinced that I could sell it to my customers. That will also work if you persevere, but I noticed that I was not busy with what I really liked. I just thought about what the customer would want and don’t get me wrong, it is very important to know what your ideal customer wants, but you can only help that customer if what it is about is also your passion and you are there knows a lot about it. What I did wasn’t really I .. What I really wanted was to inspire, help and motivate people. Only in a different way than I always have. I worked in healthcare and helping and worrying is in me. I had to do something with that. I just couldn’t figure out how to do that. I then focused on that and, after a budget coach course, chose the direction to help people who are struggling to make ends meet. Besides my training,

I have the experience myself, so I was able to help my clients well because I understand them like no other.

Besides that I have always been creative and so now I am wonderfully creative again and hope to combine this with this blog. Planning comes from getting your administration in order and I will get to work on that. Organize in a fun way and show customers that budgeting really doesn’t have to be boring. I want you to think carefully about what you really like to do, without immediately thinking about making money from it. Start by doing what you like, what you are good at and what you are passionate about. You will see that once you are doing that, the money will come naturally. Otherwise you only work against yourself.

2. Does your idea have value? If you are busy with what you like, you will see what has market value. Look at which part of what you do you can make money from. You can make more money with one easier and more money than the other. I always think and should be easier ways to make money. Think about which products or services you can offer that are of value and that require little effort for you to do and that people are willing to pay money for. If you offer something that is complex and that you cannot really put into words, how are you going to go about it? How do you offer something that is not clear to yourself? Not so .. you quickly make it too complicated and then people drop out. So don’t think too hard and try to make money in an easy way. If your product or service is clear and you can clearly show that it works, people are happy to spend money for it. Try to take the easy way and show that your product has value.

3. Write down what you are good at. If you compare the first two factors, a problem can arise there. Do what you like and sell what has value. You may be able to be very good at something and it sells well, but you don’t like to do that or you really enjoy doing something and you can’t sell it because nobody is going to pay for it. Now write down everything you are good at, what you like and what people want to pay money for. Make it visual for yourself. It would be nice if there is something that appears on both lists, because then you have found your focus. You will have to experiment with this, see what will work for you. That is the beginning of your adventure in the online world of making money.

What makes sense to you? Sometimes something seems logical and easy to you and you think everyone knows or can. I have always made that mistake. I thought I had nothing to report, but nothing could be further from the truth. So what I do without thinking might be a chore and something unknown to someone else. Make use of that and offer your knowledge. Start with the basics as they say and because you do not immediately offer too difficult information, the threshold is low for many people to start and so you have your first customers. You will then naturally grow with your customers because you are constantly developing yourself. Think about what is obvious to you and what you are good at and teach this to your customers.

Your customers don’t need to know everything you know! You help them, but they don’t have to become an expert like you are.

If I have less income for a month, it will not bother me very much, because I have known long enough how to deal with it. I don’t have to come up with a plan for that anymore. And that is precisely the information that I can easily give to customers who do struggle with this. I often thought too hard and didn’t know what information to give my customers, but by thinking less hard I can help many people who don’t even know where to start. The first online program was then the first that I started selling online and still sell. Think of a way that suits you with which you can share your information with your customers. There is no one way to do it, but there are several ways. Just don’t think too hard.

BONUS TIP: What you also have to take into account are your money blocks.

You will also have to work on your money blocks. You can still be so good at what you do and have such a beautiful product that everyone wants, but if you miss something and there is something that is holding you back, it will never work. You work against yourself if you don’t work on your money blocks. What is stopping you from making money? Do you believe that money can be made and do you believe that you can and should earn money with what you do. Do you think it’s worth what you ask for your product or service or do you have doubts about it? I really had to work on this because it cost me a lot of time and money because I wasn’t working on this. Focus on working on your money blocks. I had a lot of ideas and haven’t made any money on it for a long time. And then you are an entrepreneur without turnover. Of course I also want to help you with this. Those blockages have to go. You probably think that is easier said than done, but I can teach you how to go about it and you will see that everything will change for you too. I want you to get a profitable business and that you experience the freedom that comes with it. You get a company that suits you. Find out what is stopping you from making money and stop sabotaging yourself, what that is what you are doing. You work against yourself and you don’t know how to break this.

Knowledge is power! As soon as you know what your money block is, you can tackle that blockage and the moment it is lurking again, you immediately recognize it and you do not give yourself to it. This bit is so important when it comes to making money and why it doesn’t work out. You hear a lot about them that it is so easy to make money online, but you hardly hear this. And that while it is so important to be aware of what your blockages are when it comes to making money.

Working with animals.

Do you like animals and do you want to earn an extra cent?

Then this blog is for you!

I have collected some ideas for you. One will be logical and familiar, the other less. Still, if you are a true animal lover, I hope there is something for you to get started.

working with animals

1. Let the dogs out. Something that is already being done a lot and where work always remains. Walking dogs for people who work and whose dogs otherwise sit alone for too long and can not do their needs. Ideal if you like the outdoors, animals and walking.

2. Animal-Babysitter. When people go on vacation they often look for someone who can take care of their pets and the house. You are expected to keep the house tidy, take good care of the animals, give them food, change their exhaust, clean cages and of course give love. A nice tip: take a look at the home exchange website.

3. Animal shelter at home. You can go to someone’s house to walk the dogs, for example, but you can also open your house to animals. The owners then bring their dog to you before they go to work and then pick them up after work. Doggie daycare at home. The dog is not alone all day and you can organize your own day at home the way you want.

4. Animal trainer. Are you always working with your dog to learn tricks and do you play a lot with your own dog. Or you don’t have a dog, but you would like to do this. There are people who do have a dog that needs this, but they have no time to go to a course themselves. You can go to training with their dog for a fee. You enjoy it and you earn money with it.

5. Dog breeder. And I don’t mean bread breeding of course! I am strongly against this. Once you have a litter of dogs, you can earn quite a bit with it. However, don’t be mistaken about the costs you make before the puppies are going to their new owners. You can register your work and deal with it with love.

6. Animal insurance advisor. Sounds complicated, but it’s not that bad. More and more people want to insure their animals for the costs that the vet entails. Often they do not know with which insurance they can best take out insurance. You can list all insurance policies and see per customer which is suitable for them. Make a deal with the insurance policies that you get when you bring in a new customer.

7. Clean aquariums. You might not think about it so quickly, but it is a professional job. If you like to do this, there is certainly work to be found. Think of hotels, restaurants, bars, and offices with aquariums. Often the staff do not have the time or inclination to do this job and are therefore outsourced. Go on it I would say, because you will not come across an advertisement very quickly.

8. Design pet clothes. One loves it, the other doesn’t like it. Putting your pet on clothes can be a big business. If you can design exclusive clothes, you like to do, then here is an exclusive job waiting for you.

10. Design memorial stones after pet death.

12. TV commercial or advertisement with your pet. Does your pet have something unique. Can he or she do something special or is he or she incredibly beautiful? Try this out!

13. Organize pet meetings. Now this is already done in nursing homes, but by no means everywhere. You can also set up day care centers. Children and the elderly respond positively to pets.

14. Pets party. Instead of a tupperware party, you can organize a pet party. Buy your unique products and build your own empire.

15. Start a dog or cat cafe.

16. Pet Hotel. Start an animal hotel or guest house. Many people don’t want to just take their pet somewhere when they go on vacation. You can ensure that they have a carefree holiday if you take good care of their pets.

17. Animal photographer. Do you have patience with animals and can you photograph well. Then this is a nice combination with which you can earn good money. Stand out from the crowd and create your own unique brand.

18. Animal artist. Can you draw or paint well, then you can draw or paint a favorite picture of someone’s pet. You make many people happy with this and you can ask a nice amount for it.

19. Dog food delivery boy/girl. Your customers like the food to be delivered. Often there are large bags of heavy food and this can be a problem for many people. Do you have muscles? Then this is your job!

25. Make dog houses. Are you handy and do you enjoy working with wood? Then you can start selling dog houses.

26. Sell ​​products with animal prints on them. Think for example of pens, mugs, kitchen apron, bags, place mats, mouse pad, buttons, bumper stickers, t-shirts, caps, key rings or balloons. It is not surprising that there is a product you can get started with.

27. Sell ​​seasonal items for animals. Think of jackets for small dogs in the snow or swimming pools for the hot summer.

28. Run your own mini farm. You can of course ask for entrance, but you can also choose not to ask for entrance and then you charge money for some food and then the children can feed the animals.

29. You have to love it, but keeping bees can sell you honey.

30. Give riding lessons. Are you a horse lover and you have a lot of experience in this. Then you can give driving lessons. You can also take care of someone else’s horse for a fee.

31. Become a vet assistant. A fun job where you deal with various animals and where you are also sure of income.

32. Work in an animal shelter. This usually does not pay that much, but you certainly get a good feeling about it and at least something in income.

How can you make money with food?

1. Baking cookies.

If you like to bake and does this a lot, you can bake for others. Do you have a super good recipe then that is your niche. Keep the recipe secret and you have something unique in your hands. You can build a group of customers via the internet, but remember that if you really have a good product, this often goes through word of mouth. If you want to grow really fast, you can ask at the local supermarket if you can demonstrate. Customers can taste and make a purchase. In this way you can eventually deliver to supermarkets. Of course there are more ideas that you can come up with to grow your business.

2. Cakes and cupcakes.

Nowadays there is a lot of demand for homemade cakes or cupcakes. Do you like baking and decorating them? Think of birthdays, parties, anniversaries, weddings and babyshowers. Take photos of your products and use them as advertising for your business. You can go far if, for example, you get the chance to be able to deliver cakes for weddings. Use marketing during wedding shows and fairs.

3. Become a cook.

When you become a chef you quickly think of a restaurant, but you can also become a private chef for a company or family. You can often determine your own input here, which of course makes it even more fun.

4. Food Advisor

Do you know a lot about nutrition and what it does to health? Then you can, for example, advise hospitals on how they can prepare meals for patients with diabetes or heart problems.

5. Catering

Something that you see a lot and that is in high demand is catering. From parties to meetings you can provide them with food. You can deliver, so you don’t necessarily have to have a location. You do need a van or large car to get you started.

6. Sell vegan products.

Vegetarian and vegan food is increasingly on the rise. Only it is still limited available in the supermarket. Do you have a few self-made recipes then you can respond to this.

For example, consider a substitute for cheese. This is not available in the supermarket yet, but you can make it yourself. Not everyone knows how to do it or has no time for it. A good chance that you will be successful with it.

making money with food!

7. Prepare salads and healthy meals.

As you read at the previous point, people always eat differently. This also applies to healthy meals. In the cities you see that the salad bars rise from the ground. In the small towns and villages they are not yet ready. A pity, because there is a real demand and there’s an increasing need for healthy meals. If I don’t feel like cooking, I can choose between a pizzeria, chinese and snack bar. All unhealthy so. And consumers don’t always want that, so there is a chance for many people to set up their own business.

You know: 6 and 7 is a very good combination!!

8. Collect recipes.

Who doesn’t have a booklet, notebook or stack of favorite recipes? Do you have enough to share? Make a nice recipe book or share them via a website or social media channel. For example, if you have many recipes of a certain category, you can devote a whole book to it.

9. A food blog.

If you’re getting happy if you read point 8 then you maybe need to start blogging. Food blogs are very populair so that’s a really good idea. You can write about your favorite recipes and show nice pictures of your meals and bakings.

10. Lunch for companies.

Prepare lunch for large companies. You can build a relatively large local company with this. If there are many companies in your area, this is certainly an opportunity. In densely populated areas is much work and much companies. And where there’s a lot of employment you can earn a lot of money with food.

11. Grow your own fruit and vegetables.

You may not earn much money with it unless you set it up big. But it can perhaps yield something. If you have the space, you can grow and sell more.

12. Photographing food.

Because of the many recipe books, there is more demand for good photographers who want to take pictures of their beautiful dishes. If you enjoy photography, you can specialize in this and certainly build up a good name in this business.

Do you have nice ideas how you can earn money with food then I would love to hear from you. If you already have experience with this, I am very curious to see how much fun your work is and whether you can earn money with it.

6 Ways you can make money from blogging.

6 Ways you can make money from blogging.

Years ago nobody had heard of a blog and I must say that not everyone knows what a blog is yet. When I say that I blog I still get questioning looks regularly.

What is blogging? However, blogging is more integrated and you see more and more people blogging.

Because it’s fun, but also because you can earn extra money with it. Not many people know that you can really earn money with it. Many people think that you can earn a small amount and there are also people who still have no idea that you can earn a lot of money with it.

During the time that I started blogging, it took a while before I started making money from it. This was because I didn’t know how to make money with it.

Around me I saw more and more successful blogs passing by and also saw that they gave up their jobs to fully engage in blogging. They could make ends meet.

That was my dream after all. That my blog would become my serious business and that I could focus all my attention on my blog.

Who doesn’t want to make money from home?

So I started taking courses to learn more about blogging. I tell you in advance that it’s not always easy, but it’s achievable for everyone. Even if you have a full-time job.

It’s a matter of planning. You don’t have to go fast if you just go ahead and take steps.

In this guide you will find:

  • The first steps you need to take when you start blogging
  • The Blogpost Checklist

Here are the 6 ways you can make real money blogging:

1. Advertisements

By putting ads on your blog you can earn money. For this you need a high number of page views and visitors, because it concerns small amounts. Added together it can add up to a nice amount, but it means that you have to keep busy with your blog.

You can have advertisements placed via Google Adsense.

You get paid per click. You can earn a nice extra with this, but do not expect that you can get a whole salary from this. It’s a revenue model and it is important to use multiple revenue models in order to earn well with blogging.

If you earn enough with the other revenue models, I would leave out the ads. Many readers are annoyed by this. Opinions are divided on this.

2. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing means that you write about a product and place a link to it. The moment the customer has bought this product via the link on your blog, you will receive a commission. This business model can save you a lot of money if you handle it well. It’s important that you properly transfer the information to your readers and that they see that you are behind the product. This promotes its sale.

Do not advise many products to your readers. They can see right through it if you only do it for the money.

It’s advisable to use this way of making money. You lose a lot of money if you don’t.

If you get more experience with it, you will see that it’s a good earnings model. There are even bloggers who earn a lot of money with this and who really would not need another revenue model to get a good salary from it.

3. Sponsored Blogs.

A great way to make money is sponsored blogs. You can promote and get paid for a product or company in a blog post. Your blog post will then be placed on your website.

Another way to use this is to collaborate with other bloggers. You can post blog posts together. That way you can both get more visitors and you will get more exposure.

4. Sell products.

By selling your own products you can create a nice income for yourself. You don’t need collaboration and the proceeds are all yours.

You can also offer a lot to your visitors in this way. This way you can help your visitors even more and share a lot of information. Think of an online program.

If you have a niche, you have gold in your hands. You can respond well to this and thus make and sell your own product.

For example, if you blog about food, you can make your own menu plan with schedules and recipes. You can sell these in a bundle.

What to consider when selling your own product:

  • A course
  • E-books
  • Printables
  • Physical products
  • Subscriptions

5. Offer services.

Are you an expert in something and do you have a niche? Then you are in the right place, because then you can help people both online and offline. You can offer your services through your website. This gives you more reach.

Think, for example, of coaching. As a coach, you can help someone in the area where you have knowledge and experience. You can help them achieve their goal.

Some examples:

  • Coaching
  • Web design or website design
  • Virtual Assistant

6. Offer membership – membership subscription

A subscription is ideal to offer to your customers. You can ask for a monthly or annual payment for what you have to offer. Think of more information and printables, for example.

You can also sell photos for bloggers this way. You add new photos every month. This way you can come up with a form of subscription for your expertise.

TIP: Keep Blogging!

As soon as you don’t do much, the number of visitors decreases and you don’t want that. That is one of the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to blogging. You should keep busy with your blog by blogging regularly or you will lose readers. If they don’t see anything new, they won’t come back. You should see it as a relationship. You have the visitors, but you also have to keep them! And by blogging, the number of visitors grows.

Earn money online.

Making money online is no longer new, but there are still people who have no idea how to use it.

The best part is that you can do it wherever you want. At home behind the laptop, on vacation or wherever you are.

You can work anywhere online nowadays.

Selling stuff.

There are many ways to get extra money. Likewise by selling objects. We all have some stuff lying around in the house or in cupboards that we no longer use. Get rid of it! 

48. Sell your stuff on marketplace. Everyone knows the website and you can often lose some of your stuff. 

49. Various sales groups can be found on Facebook. Many have been set up from a specific region. It’s easier to sell something in your own region, because people come to you faster to pick up something. Collecting and paying right away is a great option. You are less likely not to receive your money or the product. 

50. EBAY. Another way to sell your stuff is through EBAY. You have a global reach and are therefore more likely to sell your product. 

51. Selling to thrift stores. Not all thrift stores pay for your stuff, but they are there. If you really have items that are of value, such as old items and antiques, then the shop owner wants to give them something for that. 

52. Sell your clothes to a second-hand clothing store. We have one around here and she takes clothes twice a year, winter and summer clothes, and she sells them in her shop. Half of the proceeds go to the customer who brings the clothes and the other half to her. A good concept that really works.

53. Selling through a flea market or trunk sale. It can be an easy way to get rid of your belongings and earn an extra penny. Do not expect large amounts for it, because people try to pay as little as possible. But I always say every little bit helps.  54. Sell your old books. Often we have quite a lot of books that we have already read. Then they are dusted in the closet or attic.  55. If you have discount coupons for a day out, a day at the sauna and you are not going to use them, then sell these coupons. For a little less than the discount you have an extra and the person who purchases it’s a nice discount.  56. If you have any homemade stuff you would like to sell, do so via Etsy. This is a website where these products can be found. Hobby stuff, vintage and flea market, homemade items and more things like that can be found there.  57. I know someone who sells meals. She cooks a little extra and via Facebook she puts a message down and you can pick it up at her place. So… cook and sell food!  58. Think about starting an online store. You can sell both second-hand items and new items. Here you have all the options.

Earn extra money with your current job.

You can always check where you can find opportunities to earn extra money within your current job.  59. Dare to ask! Ask for a pay raise. This is one of the best ways to generate extra money, because the work remains the same and you don’t have to spend extra time on it.  60. If a promotion is possible within the company where you work, take it with both hands. The hourly wages will also rise as a result.  61. Ask if there is an opportunity to work more hours. This creates more income for yourself. If overtime has to be worked, take it with both hands.  62. Develop. Ask the company where you work about the possibilities for further development. The company often pays for the course and you learn something new. This gives you more opportunities on the labor market and on a promotion.

Earn extra money by renting out.

There are many things you may be able to rent to others. This is a way that many people would not think of quickly, but this is also a good way to make money.  63. Do you have a garage and don’t use it at all or you have space left? Then rent the space so that people have a good place for their belongings. For example, someone could park a car in it. So you don’t have to do much to earn extra money.  64. If you have your own parking space and do not use it, you can rent it out to someone who is short of a place in your area. This way you also have extra income.  65. If you have an extra room, rent it out. You can register via Airbnb, this is a site where you can find and register a room.  66. Rent out the car. If you do not always need your car, you can rent it out. You can rent the car for a short or long term. Make sure the insurance is in order. Think carefully if you just want to let everyone drive your car.  67. Rent products that belong to certain party occasions. Think of a stork in the garden or rusk with mice on the door at a birth or party items when someone turns 50 or decorations that belong to a wedding. People do not have to purchase this for one-time use.

Other ways to make money.

Beyond the categories I just discussed, there are other ways to make extra money.  68. Place ads on your car, there are companies that pay you to put an ad on your car. If there is room on your car and you don’t mind placing an ad, check it out! It is still a fixed amount per month.  69. Invest. There are no guarantees when it comes to investing, but there are people who have a feeling for it. If you have time to delve into this and know what to bet on then it can be quite rewarding.  70. One loves them, the other finds them annoying. Participate in all giveaways that you come across. You will probably have a price. The disadvantage is that they often want a lot of information from you, which is something that not everyone is waiting for.  71. Recycling is something you should do as much as possible. You save a lot of money with this and you save money again. Besides that, people sometimes make the best things and then sell them at flea markets and online.  72. Write a book or articles for magazines or newspapers. Columns and blogs are very popular.  73. Buying and selling. There are people who really make a lot of money buying stuff at flea markets and thrift stores and then selling it for a little more. It is an intensive activity, but the money you have left over can add up considerably. What other ways to make extra money are there? If you know one that’s not on this list, tell me!

Is it possible to work from home?

Much people who are thinking about working from home wonder if it is possible to make money?


I don’t have to think about that answer. And I hope in a little bit of time you won’t either.wink

Freelancing and working from home is a great combination that many people do. That’s not news. But there are still many people who are thinking about working from home and start their own business. Although it seems easy to start right away,  but you have to think about a few things first.

What is it that you are gonna do exactly?

You need to determine what you want to do. What is it that you’re good at and know a lot about? And most important what is your passion? Whether you are gonna blog, have your own webshop, write an E-book, earn money with Affiliate Marketing or another way to make money it doesn’t matter. You have to make a decision with what thing you’re gonna start. If you have more experience then you can add another way to it.

Start before you’re ready!

If you ask yourself when you are ready to start, you probably will never be ready enough. You just gonna start today, don’t wait another day. Everyday you can do a little thing that brings you closer to your goal. 

Side business or make a living out of it.

Do you have a job then you can start your new business as a side business. It’s save, because you have your income from your daily job. You don’t have the pressure of making money. Are you at home without a job, you have the possibility to build your business fast. Use all this ‘free time’ to work daily on your business.

Does it matter where you live?

No that’s the beauty of it. You can work from wherever you are. You just need your laptop and your brains. It’s ideal for people who want to travel much (Do I see a smile on your face now?)

Do you need to go to school?

No, that’s not needed. You don’t need te be a genius or have a lot of diplomas.

You just need to do two things:

1. You master a skill

2. You find people who have a problem that you can solve with your skills.

It’s sounds to simple, but it really is. You’re gonna start thinking that way and you will see that that’s just what it is.

I will recommend you to take a course from an online business coach or mentor. You need to learn some basics and you have to work on your mindset. Investing in yourself will make sure that it will pay you back.

Don’t make the same mistake I’ve made in the past. Not giving any money on education and self development. It took me much longer before I start making money online.

I think it’s up to you now.

I hope you are ready to start and have all the information you need.. Start today building your own business. I wish you goodluck!
