Obviously the latter route is going to be the most lucrative in the long-run, but as it is with any business, it can take a while to grow a base of steady clients. If you're working under a company, there is no guarantee you'll get to answer emails as part of your work.

I just pulled in $500 the other day by signing up for an American Express card for my wife, and a Chase Ink card for my business. I’m planning a trip and we are paying for it all by using the sign-up offers. There are also no annual fees on these cards.
