When I read all of the blogs detailing the latest paid survey scam, I have to admit I wasn’t surprised. I’ve worked as a paid survey taker for a long time now, and have taken a lot of heat from friends and family about my chosen career. I have a college degree and am reasonably intelligent, and many of the people close to me can’t seem to figure out why I’m not working in an office somewhere downtown like the rest of the drones I graduated with.
Really, the answer is simple: I get paid more working from home taking surveys than I ever could in a cubicle. Besides the money, which is an obvious draw, I get to spend more time with my family than I would if I worked a regular 9 to 5 day. Because I make my own hours, I can attend every Parent Teacher Association meeting and ballet practice, and I have never missed any of my son’s baseball or football games.
Sure, at first I was worried that I would be another victim of a paid survey scam, but after I got my first paycheck I knew the site I was using as a resource to find surveys was a legitimate one. Maybe I got lucky, because I was fortunate to find what I feel are the best sites online for paid survey programs. I’ve never had a problem with losing money, so I’ve never had a regret about working from home. In fact, I make more than my friends do. Maybe working from home isn’t for everyone, or maybe people who criticize paid survey websites are just jealous of the freedom people like me have.
Regardless, I’ve never looked back and I enthusiastically recommend my job to people who are tired of the ones they currently have. Good luck in your endeavors!
