How to Make Lots of Money
If you are looking at your bank statement with despair thinking ‘I really need to make more money’ then join the club! You might have even looked into better pay jobs, which would have inevitably just led to a list telling you that to make loads of money you need to be a doctor or a lawyer. Pretty obvious and pretty unhelpful. What you need is an innovative and fool proof plan to give your money bag the boost that it needs.
Recycle Scrap Metal
Selling scrap metal to your local salvage yard or recycling center is a really simple and easy way to make some extra cash. There is no doubt, that you will have some unwanted metal scraps floating around your backyard. Remember that old barbeque that sits sadly and quietly no longer getting to fulfil its purpose. Well go get rid of it, and make some cash in the process.
You might think that there is already too little time in the day to do everything you need to. However, you could definitely squeeze in a bit of time to set up a part time home business. This could be literally everything that you want, from dog walking to web design. Just make sure that it plays to your talents. Who knows part time might become full time in the future.
Rent Out Your Parking Spot
If you have a personal parking spot at work, why not rent it out to someone else. If you are lucky enough to live close enough to your work that you could walk or cycle then you could earn some extra money and get some exercise at the same time.
Create and Sell
If you have a hidden creative talent, then it’s time to bring out into the light. Focus all your creative energies on making items that you can sell. Preferably things that people actually want to buy. You may think that there is already too much produce out there, but there is always a niche to be found, you just need to do a bit of research. This isn’t necessarily a plan to make a living, but it can definitely give your cash flow a boost in times of need. Once you have perfected your product, test it out on your family and friends. Try to get really detailed feedback. This feedback combined with your outgoing cost should help you to determine how much you should sell the product for.
Become a Tutor
If there is a subject area that you particularly excel at then why not help others to excel. Having strong qualification is not only beneficial to career prospects but it has now become a necessity. Because of this, many students and adults will be looking for ways to make sure they reach their academic goals. You could be the person to make this happen. You could consider working with a recognised tutoring company such as Kaplan, or if you want more freedom and responsibility why not go it alone and promote your services by creating a personal website.
Rent a Room
If you have a spare room in your home, then taking on a lodger could be the perfect way to get some extra cash. Not only could you receive the rent money, but you could also develop an arrangement to share living expenses e.g. food and bills that could save you a lot of money in the long run. You might also offer your lodger certain services for a further payment. E.g. you agree to do their laundry for an extra payment.
Car/ Lift Share
If some of your colleagues don’t have their own car and can’t drive to and from work. You could offer to drive them back and forth for a regular payment. You could also use this in other walks of life. For example, you could set yourself up as the designated driver on a night out with your friends. They could then pay you a small amount each to drive them around all night. You might only get a small amount extra, but it should be enough to fund the next night out when you’re not quite so sober.
