3 Ways To Make Extra Money

In an effort to pay down debt, you are considering getting a side hustle to make extra money. You don't have open availability, so you need something flexible that will allow you the ability to use your home as a home base.

When looking for extra cash, the more flexible, the better. Trying to line up a way to help your family with rising costs without daycare or other expenses eating into your bottom line isn't always easy. There are some options that you may not have considered. While they all may have an initial cost associated with them (think of it as an investment), the amount is almost always worth it. Look into one of these three options and hopefully one works for your situation.

1. Consider Real Estate

Real estate is a tricky business to break into, especially if you have limited time. However, there are some things that you may be able to do part-time. Look into getting your home inspection license. A home inspector checks out a home before a buyer makes the final decision to purchase it. These inspectors document everything that may be wrong with the house, so the buyer is fully informed before coming to a final decision. The report is then presented to the buyer, and recommendations are given. This job would afford you to schedule your work, even on the evenings and weekends.

2. Make and Sell Crafts Online

If you are a crafty person, you may find great success in making original creations and selling them online. Sites like Pinterest are replete with people's wishes for homemade decore and gifts. The truth is, many of these people are not crafty. Therefore, there is a definite market, and the more you can create, the broader the appeal of your product. Check out a website like to get some ideas on where to sell your product.

3. Transcription From Home

While voice to text software is becoming popular in some professions, there is no replacement for a transcriptionist. Digital audio transcription is a service that is provided online to businesses like medical providers, facilities and law firms. The only startup equipment needed is a foot pedal that allows you to advance through the audio while being able to maintain a steady typing speed. If you can type pretty fast (75 WPD and up) and have good accuracy in doing so (80% or greater), you may want to explore the options available.

One of these three options may help you earn a decent amount of extra money. You may wind up making it more of a full-time venture if you find something you enjoy enough.
