Side jobs are always on my mind. There are so many positives to starting a side job. These include: extra money (of course!), being able to pay off debt more quickly, being able to save for your next financial goal a little more quickly, and more. Side jobs allow you to hopefully not live paycheck to paycheck. You can diversify your income and not be as reliant on one area.
Also, if you are passionate about your side job, it can be a great way to make money doing something that you love. Because if you were going to do it anyways, why not make some extra cash as well? Sounds like a win-win in my book!
Yard cleanup can include many things. You can rake leaves, clean gutters, remove dead plants, clean up garbage and so on. Many people actually do pay for this because it can be very tedious work, and they might not have the right tools to get things done quickly.
Also, many areas have had some bad weather, which would make yard cleanup much more easy for their lives. We had two tornadoes in our city earlier this year, and yard cleanup made everything be back to normal much more quickly.
Tools that may be needed to make the work easier include a leaf blower, lawn mower (possibly even a riding lawn mower), a truck and/or trailer to remove debris and so on.
One thing that I hate doing on cold winter days is shoveling snow. There have been so many times when I have wished that someone would come knocking on my door and ask to shovel snow in return for some cash.
I actually know of a couple of people who have snow plow trucks and they make a decent amount of money doing this. I believe that some make up to $1,000 a day removing snow because at times a snow plow is desperately needed.
Tools that may be needed to make snow removal easier include a snow blower, a shovel, a snow plow truck, and salt for the roads, driveways or sidewalks.
With Fall and Winter quickly approaching, a babysitter or nanny is more likely to be needed. Fall and Winter are almost always busier for most families, as there are often many activities that may require the need of a babysitter or nanny.
There are many websites that you can use where you sign up and advertise your services. You can also post an ad on a bulletin board or let families directly know that you have time to babysit.
