3 Ways To Become A “Mommypreneur” Making Extra Money Working From Your Home Computer Or Smartphone


More and more women are abandoning the workplace and opting to stay home with their small children to avoid paying extremely high daycare fees. Unfortunately, not all women have that luxury and have been searching for ways to supplement their income to cover those expenses by working additional hours part-time from home. Whether you are a mother looking to bring an additional income into your household or someone who could use a little help paying off debt, here are three ways to get you started working whenever you want, making the extra money you need from your home computer or smart phone:

  1. Become a Lyft Ambassador or Driver.  Lyft is a app-based ridesharing company that matches you with a nearby driver who will pick you up and take you where you want to go.  It’s also an easy way to earn cash by referring friends, family, and co-workers to either take a Lyft or drive for Lyft. As a Lyft Ambassador you can earn $10 per passenger referral, and up to $750 for each driver referral. As a Lyft Driver, you can make up to $35/hr simply driving your car, picking up passengers and dropping them off at their requested location. Learn how to get started for FREE here.
  2. Build your own online thrift store or boutique on Poshmark. Poshmark is a virtual community (transactions are done through a free app) that allows users to easily buy and sell fashion. Have items in your closet that you love, but just don’t wear anymore? List those items for sale in less than 60 seconds and wait for the offers to come rolling in. Learn how to get started FREE here. Use Invite Code JZPKL to receive a $5 credit.
  3. Join a Network Marketing Company. Have you heard of That Crazy Wrap Thing? Become an independent distributor and earn extra money selling body contouring wraps, skin care, and other health and wellness products online and to your friends, family, and co-workers. Learn how to get started here.

About August Alsina
With first week sales of 87,000 copies, young New Orleans singer August Alsina enters at #1 on the Soundscan R&B chart and #2 on the overall chart with TESTIMONY, his debut album on NNTME/Def Jam Recordings (released April 15th), an inspirational tale of survival in one of America’s most treacherous cities. The release of TESTIMONY came just three weeks after August wrapped up the successful 21-city 2 Good 2 Be T.R.U. U.S. tour starring 2 Chainz and Pusha T.

TESTIMONY, which immediately hit #1 on the iTunes Top Albums chart upon its release last week, takes off on the strength of a quartet of advance hit tracks that were featured on August’s debut EP, Downtown: Life Under The Gun: “Ghetto” featuring Rich Homie Quan (over 8 million YouTube views to date); “Downtown” featuring Kidd Kidd; “I Luv This Sh*t” featuring Trinidad James; and “Let Me Hit That” featuring fellow NOLA native son Curren$y. The brand new single from TESTIMONY is “Make It Home” featuring fellow Def Jam artist Jeezy.

The release date of TESTIMONY carries major personal significance for August; April 15th was the birthday of his older brother, Melvin LaBranch III, who inspired August to pursue music. Tragically, Melvin was gunned down on the New Orleans streets in 2010, just days before August’s 18th birthday. The murder remains unsolved.

TESTIMONY’s motivational undercurrent deals graphically with August’s past hardships – serious family issues including death, homelessness and addiction. “As an artist,” August reflects, “I struggle with how much of myself to give to the people. How much I want my personal business to be judged. I think the EP struck a good balance of who I am and what I’ve been through, but that was just the beginning. Nothing is held back on TESTIMONY. When people hear my story, and see that I came from nothing, they’ll see that it’s possible for them too.”
