I had been blogging for 7 months before I decided to give up. You see, I had been blogging about food and fitness and honestly, it all felt forced and fake. Once I decided to write what I knew, the blog took off. Not all on its own, of course. For 7 months, the most views I had had per month were around 5K.

What I much prefer is being able to get savings with a touch of my finger or better yet, without having to do anything at all!

Well, keep reading, I’ve compiled a list of 7 simple ways you can start to live the life you want.
