There comes a time in most of our lives when we realize that our income is just not cutting it. You decide that you need another income, but you just don’t have the time to commit to the set schedule of a regular job. But what else can you do? Well, you can get a side job. Having a side job is a great way to add some extra income to what you currently make without having to work a set schedule every single day or week. If you know you need a side job but you aren’t really sure where to start, check out the list below with side job finder ideas you may not have thought about trying.
Starting a second job or even a side job can seem like a daunting task. You first need to figure out when you are available, think of jobs that you could and would do, find out if the pay is worth your time and then search for the job.
I get a lot of questions and emails asking for places to make extra money online and at home. Well, if you are searching to make some extra money it may not be as hard as you thought. I asked a few people that I know about how they found side work and the majority of them answered with an everyday place. It depends on what kind of work you are looking to do. But, think outside the box and you may be surprised with how easily you can find a side job that pays. Check out the list below and let me know what you think.
Side Job Finder:
1. The park. If you are already home with your child, babysitting can be a great side side job for you. It gives your child some time to socialize with another child or children while you make some extra money. Make up some business cards advertising your babysitting services and hand them to the other parents that you mingle with at the park. If you don’t want to babysit all week long, you can specialize in date night babysitting. More and more couples are having a date night each week and you can be their go-to sitter for that night.
2. The laundromat. Put up a flier and ask to leave some business cards at the laundromat. Laundry is one of the most disliked chores and there are lots of people who would gladly pay you to do a few loads of laundry a week for them. Just think of how much more you would enjoy doing laundry if you were getting paid for it!
3. The supermarket. You can put up a flier in the supermarket advertising or on a board by their entrance if that have one. There are some people who really need help grocery shopping. In my neighborhood, a lot of the elderly people pay for someone to run their errands. You will be providing a service that some people don’t have the time or energy to do themselves.
4. The internet can expand your reach and your network to get some clients. You can post ads for your services on websites like Craigslist or in Facebook groups for your local area. You can meet a lot of potential clients in Facebook groups. Often times, people will post that they are in need of certain services. Make sure you allow notifications in these groups so you can see when a potential client is posting.
I hope that you found these ways to find a side job helpful. Keep in mind, you have skills that others find valuable and are willing to pay for. With just a few clients, you can generate a decent extra income without working a 40+ hour a week job. Do you have any great ways to find side jobs?
