Some of us just aren’t cut out to work a nine to five office job. Some people just choose to walk to the beat of a different drummer in life, and that is absolutely okay. There are a wide variety of legal and profitable avenues to travel if you find that you are the type of person that wants to choose your own path in life. You don’t have to do the conventional thing, and take out a loan to survive. You can do this on your own. If you’re filled with drive, but aren’t sure how to apply it, then you’ve come to the right place. Here is a quick synopsis of a few unconventional methods to acquire money on your own time.
Be a telecommuting type of tour guide
There is actually a place online where you can be a virtual type of tour guide. If you’re really into traveling, then this could be a great little money maker for you. Vayable will pay you for your experiences. This is how it works. People want to travel to a place, and have their own personal travel guide with them on their cell phone. You simply make yourself and your experiences available to those people. Tell them a bit of history about the destination, and the best places to go, and you’ve got yourself a check.
Work as a freelance writer
If the written word tends to tickle your fancy, you can make a pretty good living writing for small SEO companies online. You’ll never even have to leave the comfort of your home. If you really do write on a regular basis, then you’ll have plenty of sample writing to offer up to a possible employer. Make a little “scratch” while you’re honing your craft. It’s a win, win situation for everyone involved.
Be a test subject for a NASA study
If you’re relatively young, and in good health, you could sign up to be a part of a study for NASA. Astronauts sometimes spend prolonged periods of time in a weightless environment, and NASA has always worked on ways to maintain the physical health of their astronauts while they’re in a weightless environment. You will either rest in a bed with no exercise for the length of the study, or you will be exercising in bed for the length of the study. Either way, you could make a possible eighteen grand for less than six months of work. It’s worth a shot if you are up for an adventure with NASA.
Be a taxi driver for Uber
Uber is a relatively new way of grabbing a cab home. All Uber cab drivers are just regular folks like you and me, who offer up their vehicle and time to drive you around. You can sign up to drive for Uber pretty easily too.
