As a new parent I've pretty much adjusted to all the changes to my life. Things that terrified me prior to having my little baby girl is literally child's play for me now. Stinky diapers are now cute little poopies to me instead of human land minds. A loud fart in my house now is called tooting and receives a "awww how cute". Whereas when I do it I'm yelled at and kicked out the bedroom for being disgusting (My Wife's words). Having someone spit on me is reason for a fight where I come from. But now it's just too cute when my little princess does it. Vomiting in my house was usually because of a great night of drinking. Now it's my princess's cute way of freeing up some room for the next bottle feeding. Okay I'm lying. I hate it when my little girl thinks its entertaining to vomit on me. Staying clean in my house is nearly impossible around her. But the point is I love being a new parent and embrace my current role or rather roles.
Many of you who read this blog are "professional" parents meaning you're experts at it because of your years of experience. All the new stuff I'm going through is like breathing to you at this point. As parents we wear many hats without missing a beat. Parents are counselors, chefs, doctors, drivers, janitors, tutors and much more packed into one tired body. The only reward we receive is seeing the smile on our children's faces and maybe a thank you if you're lucky. But we don't do it for the fame or glory. Our ultimate goal is to raise happy and successful adults that will do better in life than we did.
Parents Wear Many Hats Without The Pay!
Despite the fact that we wear many hats and do more work than any corporate executive can even fathom, we don't get paid the salaries that those folks get. Society just doesn't seem to place the same type of value or prestige on a stay at home or working parent as it does for other careers. Otherwise full paid maternity leave wouldn't be a privilege it would be a right extended to mothers and fathers a like. But I digress.
I may not be able to change society's perception of us but I can provide you with a way to make some money at home for one of the roles you take on as a parent. Many of you with older children have probably picked up the tutoring hat on many occasions. After all we all had our strengths in school. So I'm pretty sure you've helped your kids with their homework or various school assignments. On some occasions other fellow parents may have even turned to you and asked if you would help their kids with certain subjects because you seemed to have a knack for it.
Well how would you like to get paid for answering homework questions that you choose? You might as well since you don't get paid for it now right? If so, you may want to check out StudentofFortune.com.
It's a new website I stumbled upon while doing research to find you available non-traditional work at home jobs.
How Does StudentOfFortune.com Help You Work At Home?
Well here's how it works straight from the horse's mouth:
"Student of Fortune is a site designed for students and working people, allowing everyone to ask and answer questions on nearly every topic. Have a homework problem you can't figure out? Post it on Student of Fortune and pick among solutions written by your peers. By answering the questions posted by other users you can earn real money, simply for helping other people out in areas you're good at. In short: By helping your fellow classmates/colleagues you earn money. It's pretty simple. And we've tried to make this whole process fun, too. After all, we're just college students ourselves."
Personally it sounds like a great way to make money at home especially if you're a parent that has helped your kids or other kids with their homework. And even if you're not a parent it's still something that you may want to look into. We all answer questions everyday but how many of us actually get paid for doing it? Now I haven't personally tried this opportunity yet. Obviously I am too busy here and being an affiliate. But based on what I can tell, it seems legitimate and doesn't involve any fees to answer homework questions. What more can you ask for? So if you're looking for another non-traditional AVAILABLE work at home opportunity to add to the mix of things you should be doing such as surveys, focus groups, get paid offers, etc, then StudentofFortune.com maybe yet another source of income for you.
They have a lot of subjects and questions to choose from and the amount you earn for various questions varies so it's a great way to make some easy money. I saw some questions where folks where paying anywhere from $100 – $150 to get answers for math questions. Damn I wish I was good at math! lol
The Ethics of Student of Fortune
Now I haven't read anything about student of fortune being a scam but I know that some parents may have an issue with the ethics behind the site. After all students can buy answers to homework questions that they should be trying to figure out on their own. It's a very slippery slope between tutoring and cheating depending on your point of view. I'm not really hear to judge the site's merits. I'm just reporting another way for you to make money at home. You have to determine for yourself if it goes against your value system.
So assuming you don't have any ethical problems with this site, you may want to give it a shot. If you don't know it by now, but non-traditional work at home opportunities are the fastest way for you to make money at home. Or you can ice skate up hills and chase after jobs that aren't available like typing and data entry and risk getting scammed. Obviously the choice is yours. But my long time subscribers that follow my advice have seen success when they have followed my advice and you can too if you're willing to think outside the box!
Good luck either way! By the way if you have any questions about this opportunity please click here to read the question section. Cheers!
