There are many reasons that you may wish to earn some extra money. You might be saving for a special occasion, such as a wedding, or perhaps you’re trying to pay off debts. You’re certainly not alone in wanting to earn some extra cash, even the best earners in the country want to earn more.
Of course, you can go to your boss and justify a pay rise. This will certainly help your financial situation although you may be expected to take on more in return. Before you do that, it’s worth considering the following 5 ways of boosting your income:
Rent Your Parking Space
It’s estimated that 40% of apartment parking is empty because people don’t use the space. This may be because they don’t have a vehicle or because they prefer to park on the road. If you have space for a vehicle that you’re not using then you need to think about leasing it out.
The truth is that commercial car parks are expensive and space is limited. Whether you’re offering Southbank parking or downtown Brisbane, there will be people willing to pay for your parking space.
The best part is you don’t have to do anything to make extra money. Just register with a reputable firm like Parkhound and they’ll take care of it all for you.
Tutoring or Consulting
You likely have a particular subject you are passionate about, meaning that you know a lot about it. This is the perfect way to earn some extra money.
Simply offer your knowledge to others, either as a consultant or a teacher. Your decision will depend on what your speciality subject is. You can command a handsome fee for an hour or two’s worth of work and enjoy sharing your knowledge.
This is a great option if you love the outdoors or have a sociable dog yourself. For a small fee, you can take several of the local dogs for a walk, while you’re walking your own dog. In other words, you’ll get paid for something that you were going to do anyway. It’s effective, fun, and even offers a chance to bond with the neighbours.
Everyone has a skill, even if they don’t know it. You may be great at making jewellery, good at writing, or perhaps have a talent for carving in wood. Whatever craft work you enjoy can be turned into a money earner.
Simply create your masterpieces and advertise them for sale. You can use social media sites, local advertising, and even create your own website. The possibilities are endless and you never know where this could lead.
Perhaps the most obvious choice is to find a second job and earn money the more traditional route. There are plenty of evening jobs that can be a surprising amount of fun, such as a pizza delivery driver, or a pet sitter.
All you have to do is look at the opportunities in your area and select what appeals to you the most.
