You can find ways to make extra money on the side that can be lucrative and fun. All you need to make extra money is an open mind, motivation, grit, and determination to use your creativity and skills you may already have or can grow.
Have spare time? You can drive for ride-sharing services like Uber or Lyft. There are a few requirements like having a driver’s license and meeting the minimum age requirement in your chosen area. You can make $100 a day for a six-hour shift, though if you hustle (safely), your pay can go to $500 a day.
Speaking of cars, have you thought about using this asset to advertise for well-known brands? You can earn $200 per month without having to change your daily schedule just by having vinyl decals on your car that you can easily remove. Wrap advertising companies calculate your typical driving routes.
In combination with the ride-sharing companies, or on your own, you can participate in delivering prepared meals, groceries, or other things while you are on your way to a destination. We live busy lives and make tradeoffs between time and money.
You can get paid for delivering packages that are already on your way to the other side of town, a different city, or across the country by becoming a Roadie. Your compensation for a local dropoff ranges up to $60, while long-haul deliveries could be as high as $650.
Can you cook with flair and enjoy doing so? People like hiring skilled personal chefs for special events or long-term culinary needs. There may be education requirements for being a private or persona chef who can differ from who your clients are. If you are cooking meals for a particular person or family once in a while, it may be a less formal arrangement.
