People work so hard to earn money and create necessary foundations for the comfortable life with their families they sometimes miss out both their life and their families. How does this absurd situation happen? Very simple – No matter how hard you work, most of the conventional jobs will not allow you to earn enough money fast enough, so you have to look out for another job and destroy every chance to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Well, unless you know some clever ways to make money faster.
Be Someone’s Friend
Our world is slowly but steadily becoming one big global village where people from different parts of the globe constantly roam across and explore new countries, cities, and cultures. Unlike in village, however, they are not always surrounded by familiar faces that can help them to get around, or simply spend some pleasant time together. Join some of the existing Rent-a-Friend services, or make your own and be that friend people sometimes desperately need. Who knows, you may even get free entrance to various venues.
If you love spending your free time listening music, you will be glad to hear that some companies will be willing to pay you to review the music they are publishing. The downside of this is that you are not going to review Grammy winners so the entire experience can sometimes be hard on ears, and it will take you some time to build a reputation, but once you are there, you will start earning very decent amounts of money for the thing you already like spending your time doing.
Resell Stuff Online
You can earn your starting capital by selling the things around your house you do not really need. Once you have enough money, start checking local garage sales, flea markets and, of course, the bottomless pit people like calling the internet. You would be surprised just how cheap you can find some things (usually, rarities current owners do not care about or affordable items from mainland China) you can later sell for a much bigger price.
Start Doing Mobile Services
Not exactly one profession, but a number of things you can do if you own a van and some basic tools. So, what can you do with them? Mobile car washing, window washing, small repairs, errand services, moving, removals, house cleaning, you name it. The more complete and versatile your offer is, the more money you will earn in the shorter time frame. Come to wash someone’s car, and clean its apartment while you are there.
Become a Mediator
In its essence, this job is very similar to the previous one, but instead of doing all those errands yourself, you would be the one who connects all the dots. For example, if someone is buying a new apartment, you can be the one who will contact real estate agency, arrange to move, find some of the trustful cleaning services to clean the apartment, and, of course, form the final prince that will put some money into your pocket too.
Here you go, five ways to earn money without spending your entire day behind the desk in some cramped office. Do not be afraid to try out new things, maybe your new long-term employment lurks just around the corner.
