My friend, Ramit Sethi, New York Times Best Selling Author, has created a powerful “Idea Generator Tool” that debunks the myth that you need to start the next Facebook or Google in order to build multiple revenue streams. Ramit shows you how you can earn an extra $1,000 a month on the side with just a few hours a week and you can ramp up from there.
This is an awesome list. I already know of some of these and use some of them know. And with being in Canada I think there is some there I can’t signup to. I see a few news though so I will be checking this page out more. Thanks for the huge list! Very helpful.
Almost everyone can use a little more cash in their pocket from time to time. As we pointed out in the article “50 Ways to Make a Fast $50,” expenses can arrive when you least expect — and often at the least convenient time:

That same study also revealed that more than 50 million Americans work independently as freelancers. With considerable overlap in the Venn diagram of home-based workers and entrepreneurs, the numbers show that starting a home-based business isn’t a just trend. It’s part of the new reality of the American workforce.
If you had a knack for standardized tests and had no trouble acing the SAT, ACT or other college exams, why not start tutoring high schoolers as a side business idea? Parents all economic backgrounds are more than willing to shell out upwards of $100/hr to the right tutor, if it means their son or daughter will get admitted to the college or university of their choice. See this quick checklist for starting an SAT tutoring business from the Work At Home Mom. Whitney over at Rookiemoms also has a cool story to share about a stay-at-home mom making $40/hr helping kids out with homework and turning it into a profitable side business idea.
While it is indeed easy, it’s not effort free. You have to be willing to put in the time and effort to turn this into a solid income opportunity, but if you’re committed to putting in a few hours a week to inserting data that will pay you again and again, we want you to join us!
Running a business from home offers many benefits to entrepreneurs, such as a flexible schedule, no commute, and a lack of office politics, but it also presents its own unique challenges. According to Helene K. Liatsos, President of Home Office Management Experts, there are seven mistakes that she sees home-based entrepreneurs make.
Fiverr. This is a popular website that can be helpful for freelancers with actual skills. Know something about digital animation? You can work for someone who doesn’t and pick up some extra cash. But if you just have a brain but few skills, you can offer to do web research for someone, and maybe someone will hire you. Just know that you probably aren’t going to get rich doing these jobs. The website’s tag line is, “Freelance services for the lean entrepreneur,” which tells you right away the pay is – meh. Plus, the website’s name comes from the fact that many people work for $5 per task (but, yes, you can ask for more). Still, if you get a lot of gigs, it can add up.

When I started to work from home, I missed talking to people. A lot. But I soon found a friend. Every day, I would hear the UPS guy gunning his motor as he drove down my long driveway to deliver my packages. As soon as I would spot him, I’d fly out of the house and chat him up.
If the internet is a country, then websites are like real estates. I’m hoping by now you have a general understanding that real estates are valuable in the physical world – digital real estates work the same way. By building a website, you’re creating your own plot of online “land.”
The antique market is not as lively as it used to be. But there’s still money to be had from the industry if you love rare old stuff and possess the skill of restoring them to their former glory. To start an antique refurbishing business at home, you’ll likely need a few thousand dollars to build out a basic workshop and stock it with all of the right treatments and materials in order to truly excel with this side business idea. Start small by borrowing around what you can, and learning the basics of the trade as a side hustle before investing in a ton of equipment.
Also remember to keep a balance between time spent on your main money blog and doing odd jobs online. Odd jobs must not divide your attention and cut-in the time needed to work on your main money blog.
I won’t bore you with the grizzly details… all I’ll say was that the result was swift and painful and by the end of my first year in business, I found myself $23,000 in debt all due, among other things, to the mountains of bullsh*t courses, mentoring programs and ebooks I had foolishly purchased.
