Do you own a car? There's money in there! You probably spend around 10K per year owning your car -  get some of that money back using some of the fun and easy opportunities described in this course!

This course is crammed full of original ideas that will help you identify your car expenses and make money using your car, in ways that fit your lifestyle and desired effort level. All you need to begin is an open mind and a willingness to use what you've got in new and exciting ways! 

Did you know you could drive yourself to the airport (saving on taxis there and back) park for free during your trip (more savings) and earn money renting your car out while you're away (cha-ching!)? All this would require 5 minutes of your time to set up, and no cash investment.* If that's exciting, think about the fact that you could potentially earn $400 a month doing the same stuff you do everyday, right now. We'll teach you the tricks and help you weigh the pros and cons of a variety of opportunities.

We'll also provide interactive tools (calculator spreadsheets and more) to help you make the best choices for your circumstances.

Whether you're lazy and want to do minimal work or are willing to put hours in behind the wheel, we've got options for you. Maybe you'd like to start your own small business? We'll tell you how.  Take on a few of our simpler ideas or dive in and make big changes - either way, you'll find this course is worth its weight in gold. Turn that car into cash!
