Side jobs, ideas?

Most of us could use a couple extra bucks these days. I definitely could.

What are some side jobs you do or know your friends do for some extra cash?

Would love to hear some ideas, whether it be lawn cutting, sports officiating, anything really.

If you have solid academic background, tutoring is the way to go. Flexible hours, decent pay....

Tutoring jobs seem hard to find since most places are looking for certified or retired teachers. Also, my gpa wasn't that great uni. I would probably go for exotic dancer aka stripper but I'm a dude. I'm thinking some kind of part time labour or retail. I'm working pt a safeway right now but the pay sucks.

Other ideas...pizza delivery, mover, mow peoples lawns, open a lemonade stand...lol

Door to door salesman. Allows you to get exercise, meet new people, get yelled at. My ex's friend once asked me if I would mind if HER friend could come over to my house and show me some knives for sale. I said I didn't need any knives. She said that's okay, I didn't need to buy any... all her friend needed to do was show me them, and she would get paid anyways just for doing the demonstration. I said no thanks, don't want someone I don't know coming inside my house with a bunch of sharp knives. What's wrong with people?

You can rent out your basement for storage. Not much money, but it's passive income. Although you'll be dealing with people that are really down on their luck. You'll need a thick skin.

Having recently dealt with wedding officiants, maybe look into getting registered with the province to perform non-denominational weddings.

You can keep your own schedule, only need an hour or so on the actual day of, and standard rate is $300 per bang. As long as you're comfortable speaking in front of audiences, and have a respectable/kind demeanor, could be worthwhile.

You need a degree for sure, better engineering. I think lot of people in to it like mike holmes, it is surely lucrative. But crowded and requires specialize skills.

Yes. Yes I do. 6'1 and built like a rock. Maybe I should look more into this stripper thing. Lol. But seriously, I'm gonna look into working at the local gym.
