And whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, our financial situations have an enormous impact on almost every facet of our lives. The misuse of money can have devastating effects on our collective mental, social and emotional health.
Profit from you photos. If you’re skilled with a camera, you can turn your photos into cash by selling them to stock image sites, such as Shutterstock.com.

Other sites that accept photos from contributors include iStock, Dreamstime and Sqeeqee.
Another way to earn money is by tutoring in your home. It doesn’t have to be basic subjects like math or reading. Maybe you know how to sew, cook, use Adobe products, and the like, people want to learn these skills and you can show them how.
Other work-at-home offers tell you that you can make money doing tasks like internet searches on prominent search engines and filling out forms. You just have to pay a small shipping and handling fee. Later on, you learn that the company isn’t connected with a well-known search engine like it claims — scammers are just lying to get your credit or debit card information. If you pay them even a tiny fee online, they can use your financial information to put additional charges on your card.

After you send in your $200 to get started in the rebate-processing business, you’ll probably find out that what you’ve actually done is sign up to be an “affiliate marketer” for whatever product the company wants you to sell. If you sell something, then you get to process the rebate forms that your buyers send back in.So, yes, you will be processing rebates, but not quite in the way you envisioned. (By the way, the rebate money will come out of what you earned on your sales, so every time you process a rebate, you lose part of your earnings. Ouch.)
Turn your photographs into cash via sites like Fine Art America, which lets you upload your images to sell as prints, t-shirts, phone cases and more.

I tried to find the app on my phone (a Samsung Galaxy) and could only find something related to books. I went to the Take a Shelfie site, but couldn’t figure out how to set up an account. Can you tell me how I can get started?
