Quick Income Ideas?
Posted by tim in It wouldn't fit in any other category... on July 17, 2007

Let's face it, we've all been there. You just moved out of Mom and Dad's house, finished up college with no imminent plans of returning, you're trying to market your internet-based business to be the next Amazon.com, but you're just barely getting by financially.

I'm currently at this point, and I'm getting a bit frustrated with it. I've had plenty of side job opportunities and am currently working to get those rolling, but due to the type of skills I possess, none of these side jobs are going to be much shorter than 6 months.

Typically, this wouldn't be an issue for, say, a web development firm, but those guys have the staff and the hours to commit to it. I'm working on getting two of these projects going, but really can't seem to find the time to get them all done reasonably quick.

Also, the typical web development firm will bill the client in installments. That's not really an option for me, as my clients are in the same position I am, and can't have the funds around until the project is completed.

What I'm looking for is quick, small projects or services I can offer to earn some cash in a hurry. I wouldn't mind something that's going to be recurring or easy to repeat, I really could use something to help out with the bills.

As it sits, I just got paid Friday, and after all my bills have been paid and I made 1 small purchase, I have $30 left in the bank. I'm at the point right now that I'm very strongly considering terminating the Netflix account I have, to free up the $20 per month I'm paying there.

If you have any ideas (outside of plasma or sperm donations) that would legally put a little bit of cash in my pocket, I would really appreciate it.


As nasty as it may sound. Something I recommend would be a cold calling job... Yes its a dispicable kind of organiztion to work for, but you can work 3 hours a week, upto 45 hours a week. Maybe help out with the cash flow problem?

It certainly did me some favours.

Or you could be a gentleman of the evening.

I earned some good money out of that too!
