52 Ways to Make Extra Money …Revisited

52 Ways to Make Extra Money

I've created a download-able version of my most popular post, 52 Ways to Make Extra Money. This book is available for download right now.

But this isn't just a rehash of the old post. With the help of some friends I was able to provide much more detail for selected ideas (around 15). The guide also includes 2 bonus ideas, extra money tips, and quotes. Plus, it was beautifully designed by my friend Ryan, of HillThread.com.

Thanks to these friends for their expert contributions to the expanded sections:

Update on the Saving to Give e-book: A week or two ago I mentioned I was writing an e-book focused around the idea of saving more to be able to give more. That e-book is still in the works. I've written it. I just need to determine the best way to format it and present it to you. Those that originally signed up with the PT Money Newsletter in hopes for a preview copy will get one soon.

    I have been selling cell phones for extra cash as a way of making money. Sometimes it is as simple as just trying something and not being afraid to fail.

    Thanks for making this resource available I’m looking forward to reading it.

  6. @Tom – Thanks, man. I’m not an at home guy either. I could definitely work from a nice coffee shop though. 🙂

    @mbhunter – yeah, most people will read it online anyway since it’s just a list, and the landscape fits the screen better. if it were more of a printable “book” i’d of gone portrait. thanks for checking it out!

  7. I think that’s the first landscape-oriented e-book I’ve gotten.

    But very nice! Congrats!

  8. Tom @ Canadian Finance Blog says:

    Love the ebook! While I don’t think I would ever give up my job to work from home, I’m a huge fan of all these little ideas to make some extra income on the side!

  9. @Pete – I agree. If you want to bring in a little extra, there’s something in the book that will fit your style.

    @Craig – Thanks, man. Feel free to tweet the landing page. Would help a great deal.

  10. Great job on the e-book, hope it spreads around the way you want it to. Let me know what I can do to help you out with that. Very useful tips for anyone who wants to try to make some side income.

  11. Great job on the e-book, it really does have a lot of great ideas for making extra money. Some that I’ve tried (or are doing) and others that I may not try – but would be good for someone else. Most important of all I think it gets the creative juices flowing, brainstorming other ways to make a little extra money for the family’s bottom line. thanks!
