Let your commute pay for itself

You hear daily now about how to make money online, right? Well what if you don’t think you are tech savvy enough to work online, or would prefer being out and about and meeting people while making extra bucks with your side gig?

Here are a few ideas for you “on the move” types:

Ride Share

If you have a reliable vehicle and know your way around town, there are openings for drivers in all the cities where ride sharing is permitted. Try Lyft or Uber (or both).

Package delivery

You could consider delivering packages for companies like AmazonFlex.  Make $18-$25/hour – Be your own boss, set your own schedule.

UPS hires part time and seasonal drivers. In addition, a whole slew of personal delivery companies have popped up that hire you to make deliveries with your own car:

  • Citizen Shipper
  • Juno/Roadie
  • LaserShip

Pick your own route – maybe even on your way to and from your day job!  You could potentially earn anywhere from $8-$50 for local drops and around $650 for long distance deliveries (maybe on that vacation road trip).

Deliver Food

The money making side of companies like Door Dash, Uber Eats, Postmates and EatStreet can give you some good beer and gas money during your down time.  Flexible and worth $10-$20/ hour is not a bad way to spend a couple of hours each day on your way home from the 9-5.


Rent Your Car

Now, let’s say you don’t want to deliver food, or people, or packages.  But, you have a car that is in good condition.  Why not make some cash while you are at work by renting it out. Companies like Turo and GetAround.com to make your vehicle work for you.

If you can fly a drone (you’ll need to be licensed) check out pilot opportunities at DroneBase.

Anyone who says there are no opportunities to work around your day job schedule is missing the boat!  Make that afternoon commute pay for itself!
