OK, so you may not call paid surveys a career but I do. Well, I should clarify that in terms of dollars and cents, surveys are in no way, shape or form, going to be able to allow you to quit your job.
And yes, you’ll see promises of $50 surveys and you’ll think “If I take 5 of these per hour…”. I was once there too. Unfortunately, that type of promise has scam written all over it.
So be realistic and maybe you can make some extra money from surveys.
