Every single day I hear countless stories of freelancers or “side hustlers” looking to break the code of how to make more money on the “side”. Much of this desire to make more money comes from low salaries being offered by full time employers but the other part of this desire comes from wanting to “keep up with the Joneses’. Whatever the case may be Americans are looking to make more money, now.
Here are just a few ways you can make more money on the side as early as today:
Get a Part Time Gig
Contrary to popular belief getting a part time job does not mean you are at the bottom of life’s totem pole. In fact, the very opposite is true. Those who opt to get part time jobs are often viewed as “go getters” and are guaranteed to get exactly what they work for.
When most people think of freelancers they often think of writers but did you know that there are more ways that you can freelance other than just writing? Do you design graphics? Consider being a freelance graphic designer. Do you like building houses in your spare time? Consider being a freelance home builder. As the gig economy grows it is predicted that by 2020 approximately 45% of the workforce will be freelancers. Don’t wait for the 45% start right now.
As a kid I remember having to wait for what felt like weeks to receive a graded paper back from one of my teachers. It often felt like pure tortue to have to wait hours before receiving the F I knew I had so rightuflly deserved after not studying(I mostly made A’s though but you get my point *smile*). Now that I am older I realize that many of my teachers didn’t grade papers because they just didn’t have time and finally there’s a solution for that. Paper graders are a great for you to not only give back to your community but also put a little extra change in your pocket.
Thanks to the internet the opportunities to make more money are endless. It’s up to you to decide which opportunities you wish to optimize.
