Winnie Sun, known as "The Wealth Whisperer" from Sun Group Wealth Partners in Irvine, joined us with some great tips to put more cash in your wallet.

1 EARN ON YOUR SKILLS - GET YOUR SIDE HUSTLE GOING

Earn on your skills: Take a look at sites like @Fiverr online marketplace for freelance services,  @Upwork @Craiglist @Taskrabbit @Bideo and find ways to make a little on your side hustle.

2 ONLINE SURVEYS  

Swagbucks, Vivatic, MySurvey, Survey Bods, etc. These apps pay you for your opinion! If you’re good with writing, take on editing or writing gigs online.

3 GET FREE MONEY FOR ONLINE SHOPPING

Ebates, Honey and even airline sites which give you miles for shopping on what you normally need (vitamins, groceries, household items, etc).

4 WATCH VIDEOS FOR MONEY

There are companies such as Swagbucks that pay you for watching YouTube videos, etc. Watch live television shows and be an audience member. 

5 PAY YOUR UTILITIES WITH CREDIT CARDS - USE THE CARDS FOR CASH POINTS

Bills are paid in full and you’re earning free cash back or points for vacations.

6 FIND YOUR TRIBE -- JOIN A "SIDE HUSTLE" GROUP  

Discover a new hobby that doesn't require you to spend, but rather instead, to earn. Join a “side hustle” or entrepreneurial group. Join others who are mindful of money to learn new ways to earn and save.
