There is nothing better than sitting in your pajamas with your feet up on your couch watching cat videos. Cats are so adorably cute, silly, and prone to adorable accidents, that there isn’t much else anyone would want to do. And getting a job certainly is not high up on that list. So, instead of getting a job to support your feline video habit, try the eight options below, so you never have to be away from the cats.
8. Sell Your Stuff
You know all of that stuff you have in your attic, just waiting on the perfect moment to sell? Instead of keeping it hidden away, be proactive and sell it. Pick a weekend to have a yard sale and start putting up posters. Or sign up for an ebay account and snapping shots of anything you have with value. Nothing to sell? Don’t worry! Scour your local thrift stores for expensive books or antiques to flip online.
7. Start Crafting
Everyone has a secret artistic side. And, if you don’t, they are easy enough to pick up by searching online, or picking up a how-to book. Crafting can be a great way to make money. With options like teaching crafting classes, writing articles about your hobby, and selling what you make on Etsy or at local craft shows, you can certainly make some extra income.
6. Write a Blog
The Internet is exploding, and bloggers are capitalizing. With a little bit of work, a website, and a good social media campaign, your hobby or idea can turn into a money-making job. What’s more, you could even write about your favorite cat videos, spreading the love and making some extra cash.
5. Start your Own Business
Why get a job when you can create your own? Funding sources abound (see http://www.advantagecapitalfunds.com), and all that you need to start a business these days is a great idea and a little bit of hard work. Get out your pencil and paper, get your business plan down, and make your dreams come true!
4. Tutor Children
Remember being a kid? Homework was annoying, class was boring, and some subjects you just didn’t get. You can be a hero, while making some money on the side. Simply place an ad in your local school or kid-friendly areas, and start helping kids get ahead in their classes.
3. Become a Landlord
Have an extra room or space in your home? Simply spruce it up a bit, work out a contract that would work for you, and post an ad on Craigslist. Or, if long-term commitment isn’t for you, simply try out Airbnb, where you can meet interesting travelers and arrange short term stays.
Any phrase with “sit” at the end can be a great way to make money without interrupting important cat video time. Whether sitting for a baby, a pet, or a house, you can make money and work a job into your flexible schedule. Simply create an ad and place it in local coffee shops, grocery stores, daycare centers, or even just in your apartment building. You’ll be making money in no time.
1. Write an eBook
Do you have any kind of specialization? Then write the definitive book on it. Even if you don’t have any specific knowledge, you can write a book on anything that you have the patience to work on for a while–even cat videos. Now that anyone can publish their own book for online audiences, you too can be a famous author.
Don’t let the working world cramp your cat video style. Simply get creative.
