From Microjobs to earning an additional income off of anything you excel at, these 5 tips below are perfect for you:
Microjob – A microjob is a small job which takes less than ten hours of the week to complete and can earn any amount of money. Examples of microjobs include dog walking, tutoring and preparing Power Point slides for educators and business people.
Telework – Telework is work completed out of the office. Some telework is outsourced work, such as hiring a temporary medical coder to complete a backlog of medical records for a physician’s office. Other telework is short term work, such as creating a small website or preparing a style sheet for a website.
Take on a part-time job – Additional part-time jobs are the traditional method of earning extra money for the holidays, but many people wait for the holiday season and work in retail to earn extra cash. However, there are other peak periods in other industries where people can make extra money and put it away for the holidays.
Hobbies into cash – Crafters and artisans have made their living at their craft, but Internet sites such as Ebay or Etsy allow the hobby crafter or artisan to make money selling her products online. You can also rent a small booth during the summer months at a farmer’s market and sell your products.
Teach a class – If you have a skill, perform a hobby such as knitting, a trade such as wood working, or in-demand knowledge, such as social media marketing, you can teach a class. You need to prepare a class plan, apply and submit the plan and application to a local school.
