I work full time in retail, and have been selling digital products online for a few years now. I was curious about this book as I’ve been thinking about becoming a virtual assistant for authors, since I am also a book blogger. I thought this book would address becoming a virtual assistant, along with other ideas for making a little bit of extra cash in ways I hadn’t thought of before.
On that, I was a little disappointed. The author, Harrop, does suggest a broad range of ideas for making money online, but actually left out quite a few things I already do (and have been doing for years) to make extra money online – “to leave the job behind” so to speak – like answering surveys, using rebate / coupon apps, etc. Definitely not “get rich quick” schemes, but the extra income does help.
What Harrop does talk about, she does well, though I was a little disappointed that on each individual topic, she just includes links to other websites instead of telling us the information herself. I don’t mind a few links to expand upon the topic, but I feel when an author writes a paragraph or two introducing us to a subject and then leaves links to other writers, it’s a co-op and lazy to boot.
I still am rating the book four stars however, because this is a great starting point, especially if you’ve never thought about trying to make extra income online, and she does mention some great resources that one may not have heard of before.
I received a book for free in order for my honest opinion. I was not paid for my review.
