I know it can be hard to hold down a job when living with Bipolar Disorder. I was very fortunate enough to find my passion which was blogging. I’m more like a freelancer writing content on a contract basis. It helps pay my bills and I’m getting by just fine. However, through blogging I have been able to connect with different people and hear what they have to say. Even though, I’m a blogger, it’s important to keep my options open because you never know when things will shift leaving me in a tight spot. I do take time to explore other options and have come across a few awesome opportunities if your willing to put in some time and effort. Before I continue, here’s what so special about these opportunities –
I’m always looking for ways to make money from home. After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I found it hard for me to settle into a job away from home. So, I started blogging online and tried to find new ways to earn money online. I’ve been freelancing for several years finding job on Problogger.com. Anyways, I want to review survey companies I’ve been introduced to over the years.
Lately, many of you have posted on my Facebook page asking for legitimate companies that allow you to complete paid surveys at home. It’s hard to know what’s legitimate and what’s not since there are so many different scams out there. I’ll be honest some are scams, but others do pay you for your opinion.
Survey Momma is a new survey company I’ve come across. They are 100% free to join. The company connects you with other survey companies that want to hear your opinion.
A great opportunity.
I’ve been blogging for about 8 years now, and make most of my money through freelancing. The term “freelancing” means a person who is self-employed and is not necessarily committed to a particular employer long term. Some of my contracts would last 1 year while others a bit shorter, around 6 months. I find that freelancing and working for yourself is the best option for someone living with bipolar because it gives you enormous flexibility. You can set your own hours, choose the type of work you want to do, and limit how much work you do at any given time. This lowers the amount of stress on you compared to a 9-5 job with deadlines, timing, and a vigorous work schedule. As a matter of fact, I always recommend freelancing to other friends of mine who are also bipolar. I even help them find opportunities online.
When I told you about losing my job, I promised when I found ways to make money online that I would share it with all of you so you could start doing the same. I read in mental health communities how tough it was for people with bipolar to find workand/or keep a steady job. Well, here’s a great alternative you should consider, which allows you to work from home and earn decent money.
I’ve been trying new things online to make money because I lost my job last week. I decided to try a freelance network called Fiverr.com. I’ve had an account on Fiverr for a while, but never really set it up until I lost my job. Fiverr is free to join, so you should check it out. Even if you have a full-time job, it’s a great way to earn extra money without the added stress because you set your own hours, deadlines, and price.
Here’s how it works. The platform connects buyers who need online work done with sellers who can do it for them. Some gigs includes writing content, designing websites, doing small coding projects, transcribing video, creating a logo design, creating audio and video editing. You can pretty much post anything into one of these categories, and set a maximum price of $5.00. The cool thing is once you’ve built your reputation after working on a few projects, you’ll be able to add gig extras, allowing you to make more money.
