5 Great Money Making Ideas
Money makes the world go round – or at least in our world of 20 something’s it does anyway. But with the cost of living increasing and wages, well, not, we’re all doomed to live at home till we’re 41. That is unless we’re able to summon our inner entrepreneur and find a way to make money, fast.
The issue here is not so much “how do I make more money?” but in fact “how do I make more money without giving up the last of my social life?”
Well, we’re glad you asked. Here are 5 great flexible money making ideas:
1. Start Your Own Part Time Business
If you want a job that will fit around your social life then start your own part time business and you can choose your own working hours.
One of the best money earners is to start your own teeth whitening business. Train in one day only and gain a certificate to show your qualification – plus you’ll get a dazzling white smile that’s sure to impress too!
There’s high demand for safe and qualified teeth whitening practitioners. Everyone wants to look great for a night out or any event where photos will be taken and a mobile teeth whitening service coming to your home will be the final addition to that perfect preparation session.
But if you don’t have the time or funds to do a teeth whitening course then you could always become an Avon or Betterware lady!
2. Sell Your Stuff
If you’re anything like us, the reason why you need money in the first place, is because you can’t stop spending the money you do have.
Every spendaholic has probably had an impulse buy or two in their time, which they later regretted (usually after the label has been torn off an item and the receipt has been lost).
A simple solution? Make money on the stuff you don’t want or need. Sell your unwanted clothes, shoes, bags and random trinkets on EBay or Craigslist, and as for the left over stuff that even strangers on the internet don’t want, there are always car boot sales!
Yes, you will find yourself haggling with a stranger who thinks 50p is too much to spend on a pair of shoes but if you have a lot of junk in your (car) trunk, you can easily make over £100 in one hefty car boot trip.
3. Life Modelling
Want to get paid to sit around and do nothing? Then this is the job for you. So long as you don’t mind an audience and occasional nudity that is. For those who haven’t got a problem with all eyes being on them, the experience is said to be quite exhilarating.
The best part is that no qualifications are needed, just the ability to be very still for substantial periods of time and the cojones (pun intended) to have people staring at your bits for what will probably seem a lifetime.
4. Become A Mystery Shopper
Getting paid to eat and shop – I think most of us would be happy with this one.
This isn’t so much a get rich quick scheme as it is a “earn a bit of extra money sporadically and over a long period of time” arrangement. Typically you can get paid between £20 and £100 per trip, and assignments can vary from trying a new restaurant to staying over-night at a hotel.
Being a mystery shopper is a lot like working in the porn industry in that, the more flexible you are, the more work will come your way.
5. Become a Nightclub Promoter
Well, we couldn’t leave this one out could we? Get paid to party and get paid to drink! The only skills you need on your resume are the ability to have fun. Oh and the ability to persuade pretty girls and hot guys to come party with you. Think you you could do it? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
