Making extra cash in this unfriendly economy can add so much value to your life, more than you can ever imagine. You don't have to wait for your paycheck at the end of the month to buy groceries and other items, and you get to increase your savings for the future. Luckily, there are creative ways to make money, both offline and online, that won't clash with your current job. Blogging, freelancing, graphic design, arts and crafts, tutoring, and consulting are some of the few ways you can earn extra cash and turn your life around.


Get into Freelancing

We live in a world where everything is moving at a very high speed. Fast food, fast cars, fast rentals, etc. Freelancing is also a representative of a generation that is finding ways to work dynamically. You can offer services to people in exchange for cash if you have skills in writing, graphic design, logo design, translation, transcription, the list goes on. Freelancing offers you the unusual opportunity to provide services to clients without being permanently tied to them, like your regular day job.


Become a Virtual Assistant

Many executives now work remotely and do all their work from the comforts of a business hub or mobile office. These managers need virtual assistants to carry out daily tasks, which is necessary for the survival of their business. If you are an organized person with computer skills, you can work as a virtual assistant. There are third party sites that provide opportunities for job seekers to find people looking for the services of a virtual assistant.


Offer Online Tutoring

People all around the world are looking for someone that will teach them one skill or the other. If you are an expert or have skills in design, graphics, tailoring, makeup, etc., you can provide online tutoring for millions of rookies who want to acquire new knowledge and change their life. Online training will give you the opportunity to have your own community of students, have a self directed ira, make money quickly by posting videos, and make extra income from people who need one-on-one tutoring or practice classes. You can start your own website or join a website like Udemy to register your course and start making extra cash.


Start an Online Store

This business will require a little capital and bit of hard work, but it also pays more. Starting an online store is very simple. All you have to do is pick a niche you would like to invest in, e.g., beauty products, come up with a name, and get someone to design your store for you. You can sell your own products on the store and make all the money or work with established stores like Amazon, eBay, etc. to sell products for a commission.


Turn Your Car into Cash

If you have an excellent car and you want to make extra money, there are different ways to do it. You can rent your car out to people and collect payment on the number of hours they used the car. You can also sign up with applications like Uber or Lyft that allow you to use their system to get customers who need taxi service. These services will, however, need to inspect your car to ensure it meets the requirements for vehicles operating under their service. Companies like HopSkipDrive will allow you to make money driving children to and from activities or school if you have experience in caregiving.


Having extra skills is a great opportunity for you to add value to your life. It doesn't take you much to start making extra money from writing, freelancing, designing, and tutoring if you are ready to spare some time.
