It’s the start of a new decade and time to start doing you. This is a fresh chance to do things differently. Better. To live life a little more “you”, ditching the things you don’t like and multiplying what you love. It’s a time to hunker down, dig your heels in, and start fulfilling your wildest dreams for 2020 and beyond.
And to do that, a little extra cash wouldn’t hurt.
We put our heads together to bring you some fun ways to put a little—or a lot of— extra moolah in your pocket for the things you truly love. Because you’re a rock star. And this year, you’re going to live like one. Without further ado, here are our best ideas for multiplying your cash in 2020:
1) BECOME THE NEIGHBORHOOD DOG WALKER
Dogs are man’s best friend and we know dog-owners are willing to hand over some serious cash to make their furry friend’s life better – it is estimated people in the U.S. in 2019 alone spent more than $75 billion on their pets. Why not capitalize on this and make some extra money, all while getting your daily dose of puppy love! There are a variety of apps that will help you start your dog walking empire, or you can follow the tried and true method of leaving up flyers around the neighborhood. Pro Tip: leave flyers in neighborhood spots like coffee shops, yoga studios, and community centers!
2) CENTER YOUR SIDE HUSTLE AROUND THE CENSUS
Every 10 years the U.S. does a nationwide Census where every man, woman, and child in the country is counted. This monumental undertaking means that hundreds of thousands of temporary workers are needed across the country. Best of all? The positions have flexible hours, competitive pay, and workers are paid WEEKLY – no more waiting two weeks for your hard-earned money.
3) BECOME A FOCUS GROUP GROUPIE
It’s 2020 and it’s time we admit it… We all know our opinions are better than everyone else’s. But did you also know that companies are willing to pay you a pretty penny for your opinions? Instead of ranting to your friends or getting into a Facebook argument with someone (… again) get paid for your viewpoint by attending focus groups! You can typically earn $50 to $100+ for just a few hours of your time. Go tell those companies how you REALLY feel and walk out with cold, hard cash!
4) SHARE YOUR SKILL$
Remember those years of piano lessons you took? Perhaps you can make macramé masterpieces. Or maybe you have a knack for needlepoint. Whatever your niche, more and more people are looking to experiences instead of things to enrich their lives. Help others learn something new by teaching a unique skill you have. Target your lessons to kids, or as a fun group activity or date night for adults. It’s time to turn your hobbies into hundreds.
5) PLAY TWO NEW TICKETS FROM THE ARIZONA LOTTERY
