Ways to make money without a job

Well, I'm planning on getting a job later this summer, so that I can save up some money, but I'm wondering what kind of creative ways you make money.

For one, I always have collected coins from the floor. My brother leaves a lot of coins on the floor, and he doesn't even care whether I pick them up. I always joked that his room is like an unguarded bank. My jar is nearly full, I plan on finally redeeming them for real dollars.

Another way I'm making money is setting up a bag in my room for those plastic bottles. Each time I drink (or find) a plastic bottle, I put it in this bag in my room. My first bag is nearly full, and I plan on using more. In the end, if I feel I have enough, I'll go to a bottle recycling center and making some money off it.

Any of you have specific ways of making money?

RE: Ways to make money without a job

I've been thinking about the same thing, as well.

Selling books is one option, if you have books or other items you no longer need.

Doing some kind of gigs or services is another. Anything from helping people with their computers, to taking care of people's animals, to helping promote their businesses or helping them move. Tutoring could be another option.

There are also a lot of ideas on Fiverr, even if it makes sense to charge more than $5 for a lot of them.

Another idea... ask brainiac for some cash. Smile

On that note, what do you have in mind to spend the money on, in the future?

And, what are you planning on finding for a job?

If you're interested in doing web development, there are a lot of opportunities there. Personally, I'm interested in taking other options.

RE: Ways to make money without a job

My first job may actually be working at the library, shelving books. It may not be very mind-stimulating, but the local library actually pays for this kind of stuff.

Yet another way I intend to make money is from the internet. One idea that has crossed my mind is making gaming videos and reviews. Of course, I would need to make my channel. You can make money from advertising revenue.

RE: Ways to make money without a job

The catch with making money through YouTube is that you need a lot of views to generate much money.

I'm not totally sure, but I recall reading that $1 per 1000 views is common. So, you need to either have videos go viral and/or build up a following that watches them regularly.

What about a channel dedicated to the issues of school from student perspectives? That might make for a good niche.

Ways to make money without a job

Indeed, a YouTube channel dedicated to challenging the problems of school and what students think about them is a great idea for a channel. I want a channel which is more blunt and simply explains the problems and alternate solutions. I'm actually quite dedicated to changing school once I graduate from school, because I feel that education must be transformed. I don't want to see the factory model live on for more than it should.

First off, find yourself a nice .357, then you find yourself a nice quiet bank...

Don't most banks these days have some kind of dye? Plus, most banks don't have vaults, either.

RE: Ways to make money without a job

You could try the Federal Reserve...or Fort Knox.

Course you might need more than a .357
Maybe a massive droid army.
But that requires money.

Crap, you've now fallen into a cycle!

This topic was just asking to devolve into a discussing of crime and scams. Razz

Next step: Evil Overlord List

"If you don't want, or are unable, to be an Evil Overlord, look up The Universal Genre Savvy Guide."

(Wow, I think that's the first time I've come across that page... what a lot of reading to do...)

That requires time.

Crap, I've fallen into a vicious cycle!

But that leads to another point... time and money are both things you can get, but then you get to decide how to spend them.

So, limiting spending means less need to make fortunes, while making fortunes means you have more things to deal with, but arguably, more ways to deal with them (like by hiring people.)

That leads to another way to make money without a job: find work that needs doing, then find people who want to do work, and act as a broker (Wikipedia) between the two things.

Hidden stuff:

See also the trope Knowledge Broker for a particular kind of broker.

Or, try to find gigs as a writer: Writer's Market online or find the anually-updated massive hardcopy version.

(But, finding and applying for those gigs takes time... and developing the skills to get them might as well.)

Droid army wasnt too smart but their numbers were immense And once they removed that central control system(that caused their defeat on Naboo), the Droid army put up hell of a fight. Course from the POV of a Jedi, fighting droids was like cutting butter.

The Clone troopers were pretty good soldiers but the mental modifications they recieved that made them devoid of complete freewill(thus always following orders of the leadership), it pretty much gave a Sith total control of a well-sized force that would follow any of his orders.

Funny thing about Storm Troopers was that they were mostly Clone Troopers yet for plot purposes, they're aim was so bad, they became the epitome of awfully crap aim. Yet this makes no sense when Obi-won states that only Storm Troopers could have such precise aim and how Storm Troopers were basically the Clone Troopers renamed and re-organized.

So when shooting at non-plot important people, they're aim was superb but when against plot characters, they couldnt hit a lake if they were standing at the bottom of it.

Maybe to start off you can just find some crap you don't need at your house, and depending on how "valuable" they are, sell them on eBay. With the bidding system they have, you could earn lots of money Biggrin

Ways to make money without a job

Tutor online
http://www.beeymo.com

Don't bother with the surveys. They are a complete waste of time. Tutoring, on the other hand, actually helped me earn enough money to pay for bills and school fees. Anyone who is good in a subject or is a native speaker of any language, should try online tutoring. Anyone can use it to teach and the sessions are performed online. Check it out cuz it's really one of the only ways that helped me.

There's also:

Hope it helps. Smile
