  1. I have a friend who likes to help out in wedding planning during the weekends and recently develop a great interest of wanting to take this hobby and turn it into a side business.

    How can she do this online while meeting local clients at the same time? Any tips from you would be appreciated.

    • Hi Cathy,

      Your friend can start her business on wedding planning starting a website and write content related on the topic, sharing some good advices to people who are planning a wedding, at the same time on her website she can offer her services to plan the wedding.

      A good tip for your friend is, she can work on planning a wedding planning pack, where she can offer her services, from the smaller pack to a I can plan everything for your wedding.

      Another way to start making some money with her wedding planning business could be to work on a wedding planning planner that she could sell a PDF file from her website or on Etsy, this is a low price item (from 7 dollars to 47 dollars) but this could be the open door for your friend, as she offers great value item to people she can turn these first time buyers into a clients for a second buy or a whole package.

      The benefits of a low price wedding planner PDF file is, your friend will work on it only one time and she can sell it many times.

      I hope these ideas will help your friend to take the first step on her new business, if you and your friend want a few more ideas, let me know.

      Have a great day!

  3. You know I have seen many get rich quick scams online, I’ve even been apart of one lol. But so far I like a lot of the ideas you have and also trust them because you don’t make any false promises. Everything is going to take time, and it’s going to be a lot of hard work. These are realistic expectations and give me good goals to set.

    I read your review on wealthy affiliate and it really makes sense, I think I’m almost ready to commit but I have one question. Let’s say I do signup and go premium, what would happen to my website if canceled my membership?

    • Hi Gabe,
      I thank you for making the time to read my blog about 20 ideas to make money from home and my Wealthy Affiliate review.
      If you sign up to Wealthy Affiliate and start working on your website, if one day you decide to cancel your membership, your site is maintained for 30 days During that time you can either reinstate your membership and all is well or you can transfer you domain to another hosting service.

      I hope I answer your question, if you have another question I’ll be glad to answer to it.
      Take care.
