True, the warm summer months are a great time to relax and get your much-needed break but at the same time, the season brings a number of money-making opportunities too.
Whether you’re a recent graduate, a teacher or student on summer break, or just anyone who is looking for ways to earn extra cash, read up to learn about how you can boost your income this summer.
Tutoring and Teaching
Share your knowledge and skills and make money at the same time by doing tutoring and teaching. Parents usually put their kids in summer classes so if you think you have the skills and patience, offer your services online or in your neighborhood. You can tutor them individually or put together a small group workshop.
House, Baby and Pet-sitting
Since a lot of families will be out and about this summer, many of them would need someone to watch over their house, kids and pets. You can even offer extra services such as house cleaning, pet grooming or tutoring.
Lawn and Yard Work
Most people dislike doing yard work especially under the heat of the sun. So why not take advantage of this and make money out of mowing yards, pulling weeds, and the like?
If you live in a touristy location, working as a tour guide will be a hit during the summer. Share your knowledge about your hometown and meet new people while earning money on the side.
Work at Weddings
Summer is wedding season so it’s the best time to take advantage of it. Lots of extra hands will be needed at weddings – from the major tasks of being a wedding coordinator, photographer or DJ to working as one of the assistants, movers, servers and cleaners.
Designing and Craft Making
If you’re blessed with an eye for design and a pair of crafty hands, now is also the perfect time to make money out of that. There will be lots of parties during the summer time – birthdays, weddings, bachelorette, family gatherings, baby showers, etc., so make use of your art skills by becoming a venue decorator or make handmade invites, giveaways, decorations, cards and so much more.
As long as you have the goal to boost your income, the opportunities are endless, no matter which season it may be.
