15 Ways To Make Money Now

One of the most common things I hear is people saying, “I can’t cut back my spending any more!” In the world of personal finance, there are only two things you can do to achieve financial freedom: spend less money and make more money. I have always been a fan of spending less money and there are hundreds of ways to spend less that lots of people never think of. (We’ll get to that in a future article.) However, there is only so much you can cut before you say there’s nothing left to cut.

As well, I’m not a huge fan of living on rice and air and staring at a blank wall. That’s where we have to get to the second option: make more money. There are literally thousands of ways to make money, some you may have never thought of. I put together a list below of 15 ways you can make money right now to help you get started.

  1. Clean houses, offices, or apartment buildings.
  2. Become a freelance ghostwriter, copywriter, editor, or proofreader. Try elance.com.
  3. Become a virtual assistant.
  4. Become a tutor.
  5. Wait tables. Great for nights and weekends.
  6. Deliver pizzas.
  7. Mow lawns.
  8. Offer Pet Sitting services. This may just entail checking in on the pet a few times a day.
  9. Stage Homes. People are having trouble selling their homes these days and could use a second pair of eyes to stage their home for the quick sale. If you’ve got the designing skills, offer up your services.
  10. Paint Street Numbers. With just a few paint and stencil supplies you could walk the neighborhoods with curbs and solicit your curb number painting services.
  11. Create crafts and sell them on Etsy.com.
  12. Lend money to people through sites like LendingClub.com.
  13. Complete surveys for pay at sites like MySurvey, CashCrate or TellWut.
  14. Become an Amazon Associate, and ask your friends to use your affiliate link when they make purchases.
  15. Offer resume writing services.
