Don’t worry – I’ve got you covered.
Check out these 4 ways you can snag some quick cash in your spare time without any experience, any special talent, or any big startup investment…
Let’s get straight to it, shall we?
i. Info compiling
This is one of my favorite side-business ideas because nobody ever brings it up when this sort of discussion starts. But all you really need to do this sort of thing for some easy cash is some spare time and the right portal.
Many freelancing sites, like oDesk, have people searching for help with somewhat simple tasks that they simply don’t have time for. That’s where you come in.
Can you spend an hour or two on a Saturday afternoon compiling research and info on a random topic? Of course you can. All you need is there Internet. That’s easy money.
You probably drive everyday anyway, so why not get paid for it?
By now you’ve almost certainly heard of driving services like Uber and Lyft where drivers act as taxis and get paid for it. All you need is a driver’s license and an appropriate vehicle to sign up, and then you can have a brand new source of income.
Have free time between work and your dinner reservations? Why not drive around, take passengers where they need to go, and make money flow into your account?
iii. Run errands
I’m sure I’ve brought this up before, but it’s such a good way to earn some quick cash that it fits perfectly here. Can you pick up groceries? Can you drop something off at the post office? Can you pick up dry cleaning?
If you can run basic errands, you can earn easy money with sites like Task Rabbit, where regular people without much time will pay you to do simple tasks like those mentioned above.
Here’s another opportunity that stems from any freelance website. Many people need things proofread, but don’t have the time or the eye for detail.
If you can step in and do what they can’t, there’s money to be made. And if you aren’t certain about your expertise with the English language, don’t worry. You can always pick up a book on grammar and quickly acclimate yourself.
