@dasjung Well the creative industry needs to get over it then. Makes them sound like a bunch of cry babies trying to make the world stop revolving. Everything is a scheme to make extra money. Including the work by the most serious, professional web designer. Every type of work has different levels of professionalism, and thank goodness we live in the U.S. where people are free to trade goods and services at the levels they deem appropriate. Free enterprise and liberty are beautiful words. I’m all for standards. I’m a CPA. But I’d never tell someone not to help people with taxes as a little side business. And that’s federal taxes! This is logo design. Logo design!My latest conversation: https://ptmoney.com/taking-time-off-work/
The nice thing about men’s fashion products is that there’s also an increasing trend of men that purchase online in general.

This is good news for men’s retail and ecommerce as it presents a significant business opportunity for a specific audience.
We each have something that WE personally have been designed to do on this earth. We each have a destiny and a purpose. I kept deviating off of my calling because it’s “weird” it’s “different” and I have to go alone. That’s okay! Going alone sometimes means nothing more than “you’re on the right track!” and amazingly, when I was willing to break out and blaze a different trail, I found other likeminded people when I got there…so, a whole new circle of connections.

I have found temp agencies to be great at times for finding part time jobs. Most of them will make it hard on you and may even try to steer you away because they focus on full time jobs, but a good one can find a part time job for you. I used them when I was just out of college to get data entry jobs while my main job paid so little.

The only reason my business exists today is because other entrepreneur friends wouldn’t let me quit. Seriously, I tried to throw in the towel and start over with something else, but they wouldn’t let me. They talked me out of it.
This is slightly different than eBay Arbitrage. Find a distributor that will sell to you at their discounted prices. List these items online. Buy and ship to your hearts content. Basically, you become a reseller of computers and other hardware. Another thought here is to sell computer parts. Can you find a part that seems to be in demand. If you can supply the demand, you may just have yourself a part-time business.

You no longer have to limit yourself to making money in your local city. However, this technology at our fingertips has made it harder than ever to stand out from the competition. Anyway, keep up the great work, Grant!
Food. The second word in “Bed and Breakfast” is just as important as the first. Some B&Bs have tried to serve their guests muffins, juice, and coffee in the mornings, but the most successful hosts understand that the breakfast they serve will make a lasting impression on their guests. You can get creative and serve the type of breakfast traditional for the area that you’re in. For instance, if your home is located in the South, then eggs, grits, and biscuits may go over well, while Southwest guests may appreciate a traditional Tex-Mex meal. Whatever you decide, make it memorable and make sure that your guests feel welcome and appreciated. Make it memorable, and they’ll spread the word for you.
Outside of smaller or more specific jobs, like transcription or tutoring, you can find freelance work online as well. Many people earn supplemental income as a virtual assistant or performing other non-specific administrative work.

The nutrition and health industry is always changing and there’s always opportunity for new products to cater to the latest fad or diet. One of the bigger trends in the last few years is the Paleo diet.

I have not yet clicked on the sites recommend yet, so forgive me if this could be answered by going to the site. You mentioned that there are practice tests you can take, is that found on the site or somewhere else? Thanks
The market for web host reselling is crazy competitive — so much so that you’ll have to invest money into marketing in order to even let people know about your business. Plus, you won’t even earn that much if it does pan out.
20. Baby-Sitting – Baby-sitting is another great side hustle that can earn you upwards of $100 per night! Many people start baby sitting in high school, but there’s no reason that college students and other young adults can’t keep in the game, especially if you have neighbors or relatives with young children.
Amazon – Have you heard of FBA? It stands for “Fulfilled by Amazon” and it’s getting pretty popular. Basically, you buy products (in bulk is best) and ship them to Amazon for them to store. When your products sell, Amazon packs them up, ships them out and sends you the money (after taking their cut). There are people making a full-time living from FBA, while others just do it for some extra money.
Some people prefer to keep their online business small. For some, that means an extra $1,000/month (or $10,000/month). Others want to grow their business big, building a team to scale to millions of dollars a year. We can help you at every level since we’ve been there.

Don’t think you can write a good novel? Then stick to what you know – self-help is a money-making genre!

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you so much for inspiring me and showing me that it is possible to make quite a bit of money blogging!

As just one idea my friend shared with me, many people don’t have good home listing photos of the home they’re trying to sell. If you notice, many of these pictures, aside from the ones done by professional photographers, have bad lighting, show clutter, etc. If you’re good at taking pictures and have a nice camera, you might be able to sell your photo taking services to real estate agents or to people trying to sell their own home.
Humanatic – This is call reviewing. You listen to recorded phone conversations and tag them according to specific criteria. Not much money at all (which is why it’s listed here on my extra money list), but I have done it and it’s not too difficult.
