There are plenty of jobs you can do from home to earn some extra cash. Start by asking yourself a few questions.
1. What are your skills and strengths?
We all have our talents. What did you study? What are you best at? Try to think as narrowly as possible. People might not need their own Marketing Manager, but freelance copywriting or a social media strategy could be an easier sell. Consider the other skills you have – cooking, fluency in a foreign language, html, drawing etc.
2. What do your friends say you’re great at?
Sometimes it can be tricky to be self-aware and realise those special aspects of ourselves. Maybe you have a great fashion sense that your mates are envious of. Could you conduct a killer dance workout? Maybe you make really good scones. Or margaritas. Is there anything you could offer people that they would find valuable?
3. What are you passionate about?
When you’re thinking about your ideal Sunday, how are you spending it? Do you endlessly scroll through gaming sub Reddits? Work on your bike? Do yoga by the beach? Skill up in fitness trends?
4. What goods or services would you pay for?
Consider what you would pay for right now that you can’t get a shopping centre. Maybe an arranged flower bouquet, a hand-drawn portrait, a vegan lunch, a house clean? There are heaps of options.
Try to open your mind and think about how you can help someone or bring a smile to their face.
