pic       I’m trying to put together a list of money-making projects for women who might need extra cash, or for our teenagers who perhaps can’t get a job this summer.  

Here are some:

Pet sitting  

House sitting  

Driving  someone's car to their new home (like, if they're moving across country and don't know how to get their car there because they're flying and the moving truck is taking their stuff)

Mowing  people's lawns and/or doing yard work (A teenager I know made flyers to distribute with his phone number.)

If you have computer skills:

     - typing  someone's handwritten journal, article, travel-log, or work-in-progress into "Word"

     - proof-reading  someone's novel (checking for grammar, spelling, and the eternally misplaced apostrophe)


For make-up lovers, you could offer to do wedding or portrait makeup . (Check for the need for some sort of health permit in your town.)

Personal Organizer  

Reading Tarot  cards at the local bookstore

    • Another idea...

      I represent a jewelry line. If someone doesn’t necessarily want to join my team and the company, but are still looking for work...I offer them to do catalog shows for me and instead of earning free jewelry, I am happy to pay them a commission. Super easy and a great way to earn extra cash.

    • I wish I had a good, reliable pet sitter over here! Anne, I wish we lived closer. I’d hire your daughter. I have to put Murphy in a kennel while we travel this month and I just hate doing that.

      Good list, Suzann. Love that cat’s face!

    • You guys are fabulous. Vikki, your additions are perfect. And Gabbingal, what a generous offer - I hope it’s perfect for someone who reads the comments!

      Anne, I hope your daughter has a wonderful time pet sitting.  

      Cynthia, awwww. But then you’ll come back and Murphy will be happy. I so know how you feel. Yes, that cat’s face is just ... just ... and those blue eyes.
