If you’ve decided that it is time to leave the 9-5 and you are going to work from home running your own business, you may need to have a form of income while you finish creating products and developing your business. Here are 7 Ways to make quick cash, while you get your business off the ground.
7 Ways to make quick cash
Provide a Service
If you plan to make your own products and sell them, you likely have skills that other people will want to use. Try finding out if anyone needs the types of service you could offer. Perhaps you’re good at graphic design, database management, transcription, or something else entirely. Put it out there and people may buy your time.
Get a Part-Time Job
If you can’t wait for services to take off, and you need to leave the 9-5 right away, you can get a part-time job. Sign up to be a substitute teacher or a temp at an agency, or head over to your nearest fast food place and you’re likely to be hired on the spot.
Get a Work-at-Home Job
There are also work-from-home jobs that you can get pretty quickly if you have the experience, education and skills. Look for call center work, and you could be bringing in money within the month.
Sell Stuff on eBay
Have too much stuff in your house? Try selling some of it on eBay. You can also buy from stores on sale and then sell for a higher price on eBay. Believe it or not, everyone isn’t able to get to the same sales you can.
Sell Stuff on Amazon
Sort of the same idea as eBay, but you may not be aware that you can sell your old books and pretty much any items that Amazon sells, right from your home office. You can even ship some qualifying items to their fulfillment service and you just collect checks. Look up “fulfillment by Amazon”.
Have a Yard Sale
One of the fastest and most tried and true methods of bringing in a little cash is the old-fashioned yard or garage sale. You can still do that, and if the weather is not right, look on Facebook for groups dedicated to online yard sales in your area to make quick cash.
Babysit or Dog Sit
One of the fastest ways to make a buck is to babysit or dog sit but make sure you do it in their house or you’ll have to worry about licensing. Tell everyone you know that you’d like to babysit or provide animal care or both in their home and your fee. You’ll be amazed at how many will jump at the chance.
