The news consistently comments on the job market; comments on the economy and the debate of whether it’s improving or not. The thing is, who knows. If you spend time asking the American people, I suppose some would agree that the market is improving. Many others who are continuing the daunting journey of job hunting, may argue that nothing has changed. That finding employment continues to be a seemingly never ending battle.
Regardless, I suppose we can all agree that the economy and the job market isn’t necessarily where we would like it to be. Economic improvements or not, most of us continue to strive to find ways to make a little extra money, to pay off our debts faster than originally planned and to remove some financial burden and stress from our lives.
Believe me, I have scoured the internet looking for quick money making opportunities. They are few and far between; here in Denver, we have some options, but they are not going to bring in substantial amounts of money. They are likely to give you a little extra cash here and there; a little money to throw towards a fun night on the town or a little extra to your credit card. They will not eliminate your financial struggles nor provide you with consistent money making opportunities.
For those of you with or without a job, look into focus group opportunities. Focus groups are essentially a means of research, for which our perceptions, opinions and attitudes about something are evaluated. Companies use focus groups to gauge and obtain information about their products, new ideas, etc. Given that this information can be invaluable to the companies, these companies often pay participants for their participation in the group.
