Relationships...Building and Maintaining Them

Posted by Tara MeShale on Sunday, April 26, 2015, In : Work from Home 

I have been a registered mystery shopper since 2009. I attempted my first shop in 2011, but failed miserably because I got nervous and forgot some of the instructions for the shop. I successfully completed my first shop in November 2011 when I was trying to find a new job and wanted to see how much money I could really bring in with mystery shopping. I wasn't sure how much money I could possibly make, so I set a goal for myself of $50. Imagine my excitement when about a month after I complete...

Unexpected New Beginnings

Posted by Tara MeShale on Sunday, April 19, 2015, In : Work from Home 
Wow! It is hard to believe that we are nearly halfway into 2015 already. Even harder to believe is the fact that I haven't updated this site in almost a year. Well, things happened. I gave birth, had a plethora of personal problems that distracted me from doing a lot of online activity. Now I'm back. And I'm not stopping until I become a millionaire. Over the next several weeks this website is going to get a total makeover and be more appealing and organized. The first thing to change is the ...

Shifting the Focus

Posted by Tara MeShale on Tuesday, August 27, 2013, In : Work from Home 
So it has been almost 30 days since I started my part-time PTC (Paid-to-click) business and I'm really starting to see the potential. I'm still working my way through the ClickTrackProfit training videos, though I have skipped a day here and there because business has picked up considerably this past week. I've been getting mystery shops and inspections like crazy. Well-paying mystery shops, I might add. However, after my first two inspections I completed nearly a year ago I figured that the ...

Don't Quit Your Day Job...Yet

Posted by Tara MeShale on Monday, August 5, 2013, In : Work from Home 
I've put the plan in motion and now I'm rolling. I've either re-registered with paying sites that I've used before or I've registered with new ones. I have sticky notes all over the wall directly in front of my computer so that I have daily reminders as to why I should continue on with my efforts and not give up. I also have my daily plan of action on the wall so that I'll stay on track. The number one thing on the list is prayer. Prayer really does change things. I'm a firm believer in God a...

Putting the Plan into Action

Posted by Tara MeShale on Tuesday, July 30, 2013, In : Work from Home 
It's been established that I'm trying to get back into the game. I've begun my marketing campaign for this blog and a few online programs that I'm a member of. I had been juggling a few things like mystery shopping and merchandising with a few surveys here and there, but there's been an issue with mystery shopping that I'll go into detail about in a future post. Long story short, it hasn't been as lucrative for me the past two months as it normally is. On top of that, with the field inspectio...

Financial Hardships

Posted by Tara MeShale on Thursday, July 25, 2013, In : Work from Home 
Obviously, I've been away from the blog for a long time. I've been mystery shopping like crazy and even started getting into field/insurance inspections. The money was finally starting to roll in when my bills began to increase with my income. Not good. So, what do I do? Write about it. Writing is such a stress reliever and I can write my heart out for as long as I want. The mighty pen and paper (or in this case, word document and keyboard) will generously take in every word I write, no matte...

Moving on Up

Posted by Tara MeShale on Friday, October 12, 2012, In : Work from Home 
 I’ve really been enjoying my time off from work since I recovered from being sick about two weeks ago. I think my illness was brought on by stress, so now I’m a lot more relaxed than what I was, so I’ve been able to enjoy this fall weather. I’ve read several books. I intend to spend more time working on my own book. I don’t know if I can finish it by Nov. 1 like I had planned, but I think I’ll put a dent in it. It’s all coming together.

My calendar hasn’t been as full with mys...

Made it Through September

Posted by Tara MeShale on Saturday, October 6, 2012, In : Work from Home 
Well, I made it through the month of September! That’s reason enough for me to celebrate. I have not been back to my job, but I’m not totally disappointed. I hated my job and I’ve been able to spend my time off learning new things and exploring some new career options. Just last week I completed an online tax course and passed it with a 94%. I was so excited, especially considering the difficulties I’ve had with college the past two years. With the all the spare time I’ve had I have...

Working Smarter, Not Harder Part 1

Posted by Tara MeShale on Wednesday, September 19, 2012, In : Make money online 
The only way to really escape the rat-race and attempt to beat the economy is to work for yourself. Self-employment is the way to go and I have found that with a little bit of effort in your spare time outside of your day job, should there ever come a day when you’re laid-off or unemployed, you won’t be in as big of a rut as I am at this particular moment in time. I’ve had a significant reduction in hours and have spent the majority of the past nearly three weeks at home, looking for wa...

Mystery Shopping Paying Off

Posted by Tara MeShale on Sunday, May 13, 2012, In : Mystery Shopping 
I think I can say that mystery shopping is beginning to add up. No, I don’t think I can…I know I can. Not that I’ve made a great deal of money from it, but I have made enough to convince me to continue on with it. Since March 2012 I have earned $296.92. My largest payment so far has been $170.48 that I received in April for the shops I completed in the month of March. My goal was to average about $50 per month in mystery shopping earnings to add some money to my savings account. Unfortu...

About Me


LeTara Moore Since 2005 I have made thousands of dollars online. I've tried almost everything from paid surveys, paid to click, freelance writing, mystery shopping, merchandising and more. I am always looking for new ways to make money. Now I'm a mother and I have even more reason to go further in my online adventures. The focus of this site is to show some of the easier ways to make a little extra cash. Nothing to make you rich, but something to help ease some of the financial strain, but won't take up too much time. I love to read and write and I also run a blog that showcases my creative writing. I really enjoy learning and I find the best way for me to learn is to share what I've gained with others. DISCLAIMER: Many of the links I post are affiliate links, meaning I may receive financial compensation as a result of click-thrus and signups. However, I only post links to websites and programs I trust and I provide honest feedback. I only post my honest experiences with any site I promote.
