As an entrepreneur, you may be aware that you can get financially unstable at times due to the market’s condition and other factors. So, consider ways to get income on the side that will help alleviate some of the financial stress. Try these 5 ways…
1. CAR FOR RENT
Rent your personal vehicle to others in need. You may post an Ad for free at Gumtree or spread the word through self-printed flyers. Get acquainted with the user first to have a firm and trusting agreement regarding the car’s usage. This will allow you to focus on your business while your car is making money on its own.
2. RENT YOUR GUEST ROOM
If you are okay with sharing your house with other tenants then rent out the empty room/s. Once again, get to know the tenants first (i.e., personality or cleaning habits) and set some ground rules because you might be living with them for more than a month. In an event that you need to go overseas for business, then you may rent the whole house to them and charge them more.
3. TRY ONLINE OUTSOURCING
Some online websites allow users to outsource their skills on a freelance basis. If you can do website development, clerical jobs, writing an essay, video editing, or any other skill…try signing up for Odesk to get decent extra income. Salary payment in Odesk is painless because Credit Cards, PayPal accounts, and Bank Accounts are accepted.
4. INVEST IN REAL ESTATE
There are a lot of methods for making money in real estate that do not require your full-time effort so you can focus more on your growing business. You can consider purchasing properties and resell them for profit (flipping houses) or real estate wholesaling. If this area is unknown to you, find your friends or people in your area with the expertise that you do not have and partner with them.
5. CREATE A NETWORKING EVENT
Organize networking events to help young professionals interact with the environment. You not only help others to make valuable connections but you also make money by charging the participants for the food or the registration fee.
