3. Start Blogging
Blogging is a good way to start making some extra cash. Starting your own blog is a great way to getting into what we like to term “ghost-blogging”. Not only could your own blog start to bring in some extra monthly cash, but it can open doors to another potential income stream.
With most large media companies having some form of online media presences these days they also need content for their sites. Granted a lot of the mainstream media corporations have large in-house writing teams but that does not mean they are not on the lookout for new remote talent.
There are also the smaller sites that are in need of good writers and they pay well. Sites such as “Freedom with Writing” have lists of various online sites looking for freelance writers.
4. Create Websites
Today a person does not have to be a top-notch programmer to become a good website designer.
With platforms such as WordPress, Wix, Weebly, etc. it is not too hard to start a career in designing and creating beautiful, simple websites. There are a lot of people wanting websites for various reasons. Today most things are done online such as weddings, birthday’s, etc. With beautiful design templates and easy add-ons at a person’s fingertips you could become a great online-events planner.
If you can use HTMS, JAVA, Python, C++, etc. that is an added bonus as there is quite a high demand for freelancers with these skills. If you do not have these skills but are interested the internet is filled with courses on getting to learn them. Remember you are never too old to learn new skills!
