Four Tips For Finding Extra Work

Posted on November 29, 2016 by Guy Atkinson

When you need more income than what you already have coming in it’s time to look for some supplemental income. There are tons of ways in which to make more money, whether you want to do it from home or not. Sometimes it’s simply needing more money for the holidays and other times it’s that you need permanent income.

When it comes to a supplemental gig or a second job it’s important to find something that works with your regular job. Maybe you’re a stay-at-home mom that wants to find a hobby that brings in some money to supplement that of your significant other. Whatever the deal, here are some ideas for making money on the side.

Work From Home

You could work from home doing numerous things if you’re so inclined. There are all sorts of work-from-home gigs with the internet, you just need a computer and the internet in order to find them, and some motivation. Finding online work takes some time, and you’ll need to come up with a resume for the type of work you’re looking for.

Some online gigs can include freelance writing, customer service, and even data entry. Most of them only take a little experience and it can be easy for you to create a resume that will cater to such gigs, consider office work experience and even work writing your college papers.

Try Part-Time Work

You could get a part-time job, in retail or at an office. It can get you out of the house a little more and help you get a little more money. However, you need to find a part-time job that will work around the schedule at your normal job.

Get Into Sales

Sales are something that you can do from home, you don’t have to work in retail. Consider becoming an Avon lady or selling some products that help people with health and wellness. Direct sales companies can be great, but make sure that you scope out the competition in your local area if you want a chance to make some money.

You can sell almost anything through direct sales. You can sell online or offline, and you could even plan parties (which can be fun if you’re outgoing).

Start Your Own Business

If you want to make more money for yourself, not for someone else, consider starting your own business. You could create craft items or art and sell it. There are plenty of online places to sell creations and you can also sell at craft and art shows.

You could also start a magazine, start collecting vintage items to resell or maybe even become a novel writer. The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating your own business, just make sure you have a sound plan written out before you get started!
