Sometimes, we could all use a little extra money. Whether you are wanting to build your savings or general wealth, side jobs are a great way to grow your bank account.
It can be difficult to find part-time work that coincides with your full-time job. But, there are a few options that have a lot of flexibility. Below, we listed just a few side jobs that can help you grow your bank account:
No, it is not exciting, and it may sound really simple. If you use GreenPal, though, you can make an average of $55 per hour. Better than setting your own prices right? GreenPal, according to CEO Bryan Clayton, is like the “Uber of lawn care.” Not too shabby of a way to make some extra money this summer.
Bet on your weight loss goals.
Are you trying to lose weight this summer? Cash in on your weight loss through sites like DietBet that allow you to bet on your fitness goals. Lose weight and get paid for it? Sounds like a win-win.
Become a fitness instructor or personal trainer.
Speaking of fitness, if you already love working out, you can turn it into another stream of revenue. Being a fitness instructor is one of those rewarding side jobs that not only allow you to get paid for exercising, but for helping others reach fitness goals too. You’ll most likely have to pay for a certification first, but there are several options out there for different budgets. Plus, you should be able to earn that back in no time through your fitness classes. You could decide to go through a gym where the equipment is readily available, but you’d have to be paid their rates. If you go on your own, you may need to purchase some equipment, but you can charge your own rates without worrying about paying a cut to a facility. Fitness instructors can make $100 per hour depending on rates and volume of class.
Become an officiant.
On average, you can make $300 to $500 per wedding. Get set up through your state and check out the local requirements as you dive into this side job. Once you are ready to go, you can look for online officiant registries or spread the word through your network and locally. You shouldn’t have too much of a problem finding a few wedding jobs right off the bat.
Trade your photos for cash.
If you are always snapping photos on your iPhone, you can turn them in for cash through this new app called Foap. According to the site, you get $5 for each photo you sell with the opportunity to sell the same photo an unlimited number of times. Now you have a valid excuse to take all those photos of your food.
Write for your city.
Many tourism, travel and real estate businesses often look for local writers to write about the area. If you consider yourself a guru of your location, becoming a city guide writer might be one of the easiest side jobs you could do for extra money. The average pay rate for this kind of work is $50 to $100.
Cash in on your hobbies.
Sometimes hobbies make the best side jobs, and if you feel unfulfilled in your full-time job, a side hustle doing something you already love may be the answer. Love sports? Be a referee where you can make $56 per game on average. Dying to get into the world of fashion? Become a fashion consultant either for a retailer (if possible) or freelance your own fashion services. Depending on clientele, you could make $50 to $500 being a fashion consultant. Are you a computer guru? Offer computer technician services or develop a web app. The possibilities are endless.
These are just a few side jobs to grow your bank account. Some may only last for the summer and others can continue throughout the year. There are plenty of online options as well.
