  1. Hi there and Happy Holidays!! It’s the season of giving and I just a quick question, are you looking to supplement your income? Maybe you’re stuck in the rat race and blogging isn’t working out too well? Or perhaps you’re retired and need a little income boost to help you cover some bills? I really think there is an AWESOME opportunity that could really help you out which I came across: https://incomecommunity.com I’ve been working from the comfort of my home this winter and supplementing my income :-). Okay, translating isn’t always the easiest, but it’s consistent and reliable. The thing I like about it is that you basically choose how much you want to work. As long as you can find 45 minutes per day, this will be worth your time. https://incomecommunity.com Hope it helps, and I hope you have a GREAT 2023!

  2. Picture this – 3 am in the morning, I had a line of fiends stretched around the corner of my block. It was in the freezing middle of January but they had camped out all night, jumping-ready to buy like there was a sale on Jordans. If you were 16 years old, in my shoes, you’d do anything to survive, right? I got good news though; I MADE IT OUT OF THE HOOD, with nothing but a laptop and an internet connection. I’m not special or lucky in any way. If I, as a convicted felon that used to scream “Free Harlem” around my block until my throat was sore, could find a way to generate a stable, consistent, reliable income online, ANYONE can! If you’re interested in legitimate, stress-free side hustles that can bring in $3,500/week, I set up a site you can use: https://incomecommunity.com
