You know I’m always trying to help others earn more money. It’s all about the hustle, baby! Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to do it, regardless of how much experience or skill you currently have. Let’s look at some options:
Okay, y’all probably knew this was going to be my first one. I know I sound like a broken record, but if you want to make some extra money, get out there and freelance! As long as you have a computer and an Internet connection, there are plenty of opportunities for earning something extra. The downturn in the economy has led to companies spending increasing amounts outsourcing a variety of services to freelancers. There are tons of jobs just there for the taking. You just have to go looking for them!
Rent Your Extra Space
Yeah, I know you’re 30 years old and you don’t want to revert back to your college days, but if you need money, this is a tried and tested formula to earn some extra cash. If you are comfortable living with an extra person and have a spare room in your house or apartment, then taking on a renter is a simple way to boost your income. Also, don’t forget about services like Airbnb where you can rent out your space on a temporary basis.
Look into Online Investments
There are lots of ways to invest online. You can research mutual funds, make trades, buy and sell websites, or invest in binary options. If you do the last one, though, make sure to find a reliable binary options broker because there have been some recent criticisms lately of the practice. I wouldn’t recommend it if you have an addictive personality, but if you just want to learn more about different ways to make money, and you are prepared to win some and lose some, it could be an interesting option.
Complete Online Surveys and Interest Groups
Finally, a way to get paid for expressing your opinions!! If you’re opinionated or simply enjoy talking, then this could be a great way to make some extra money. Research companies charged with the task of collecting this data are always looking for people to take part in online surveys, which can be lengthy. However, they are a simple way to make money although you probably won’t make a lot. If you are looking for something more interactive, many of these companies also conduct focus groups in which participants are required to take part in a group discussion on any given issue.
Flip a Property
This is obviously easier said than done and requires a fair amount of investment in terms of cash up front. However, property is still an excellent investment. If you can afford to buy a place on the cheap and fix it up then you could re-sell it for a lucrative profit.
I’m sure there are tons more ways to make money that I’m not thinking of. If you have any ideas, please share them in the comments below!
