A few years ago, I was heavily in debt...
Four years ago I lost my job at a manufacturing plant producing popular toys for kids. You can probably guess what happened since it has been happening all over the world, my company "moved" all production to China and told me I was fired.
What happened after getting fired was years of struggling to take care of my family and lots of nights with no sleep worrying about what I was going to do. I was forced to start using my credit cards and getting loans from family just to put food on the table for my child.
I had credit card bills, student loans... and a young daughter to support!
Life was hard... Raising a young daughter on my own meant I had to be around when she got home from school but having a roof over our heads and being able to buy clothes and feed her was my top priority.
I spent months searching for another job, but it seemed like every job I applied to was only willing to pay minimum wage with no benefits. I was sad and depressed and didn't know what I was going to do when one of my lifelong friends invited me over to his house for a barbecue.
Everything changed when a friend showed me a cheque they received for taking a survey.
I was in shock when my friend showed me a $300 cheque he had received. What he told me next changed my life forever. "Companies will PAY ME MONEY for my opinion???" I couldn't believe what he was telling me.
Why hadn't I heard of this before??? When he told me companies spend BILLIONS per year doing market research, I got really excited and started asking him more and more questions. He taught me everything he knew and I signed up to start taking surveys that same day.Before I knew it, I was getting 5-10 survey invitations a day!
