Who needs money?

I dont know about all of you but last year and the beginning of this year I am getting deeper and deeper into a financial hole. I have noticied this kit that you can order on line for government grant money.. I just wondered has anyone tried that and had success? Or does anyone have any suggestions on how to make some extra money on the side. I already work 40+ hours at my 1st job and I have a four year old daughter in school and a house to keep up with and a husband who doesnt help out much so a 2nd job (like in a restaurant or something) is out of the question... HELP PLEASE!!!????

  • Hi!

    Take a look at my site at, see if you find something you like.   You can also try having your own site about something you like.  Kind of like a niche site.  These are some ways I earn from home.

    Take care,

  • I applaud your strength, and sometimes the government can help, it just depends on your income and you core bills (power, water, ect.). I know how it is with kids and working. It’s so hard because it’s a balance b/w supporting them and being with them. Have you thought about going to night school? The better the education the better the money. And you could get a grant. I’m a single mom with 2 kids and go to college for free. It takes 2 years to get a nursing degree and that means 2 year of struggle but Id rather struggle for 2 years than just get by for the rest of my life. Hope this helps!

  • Most of those government grant things are just scams to get you to buy information. The grants that are available are extremely hard to get and they don't cost you anything to apply.

    As for more income, I work at home with a few companies online. I make more than I could flipping burgers but it's not a get rich overnight scam. is my website if you want to check out what I'm doing.

  • I just got hired for a job at home, I can work either day or night every day or a just a few days. It's easy work just making calls from your home asking simples questions such as - did you get your newspaper delivered ok? etc anyway doesn't cost anything to start and they mail checks every saturday - so check it out I'm sure it can help I was in the same boat...
