He allowed me to struggle and strive for years while we fought an unsuccessful battle with infertility all because He had this blessing planned for us.

Children are full of questions from the moment they can utter sound. From the pointed grunts to the full sentences, the inquisitive minds of the young never cease to quiet. Why is the sky blue? When is dinner? Can I have a snack? I noticed that the majority of financial aid we were offered was actually loans, loans that need to be paid back with interest.

No thank you! So how will we finance the rest? Some of my ideas are conventional, others are not. Some may work for you, or spark your imagination to come up with even better ways to earn extra income. When my oldest daughter left for her gap year I decided to try putting her room up on Airbnb.

I figured I was already a taxi driver to my kids, so why not get paid for it? So, when I dropped one of them off at dance class or work I just pulled up my Uber app and waited for it to buzz.

I will definitely keep doing this one for college! I am not a seamstress and have no experience making costumes past your basic Halloween costumes for my 3 kids, but these turned out pretty good so I decided to try and sell them on Etsy and Ebay. The first ones sold within 24 hours and I realized that I might have something, so I kept making them. Lots of them.
In a matter of months I made enough to pay for a semester of college or more. Ebay and Etsy shops can generate lots of income if done correctly and with the right products. And, you can get your teens in on this one too! I know one 11 year old who made thousands of dollars selling slime in her shop! Making money by teaching others the things you already know is easy, profitable and fun. I love public speaking, so I taught a 5 week public speaking class to high school students every Friday afternoon.
