Smart & Flexible Ways For Families To Earn Some Extra Cash

It seems funny to me that the people often most in need of some extra money (parents) tend to be the ones that have the least time to earn it! Indeed, what busy families usually need are ways of earning that are flexible enough to fit around hectic family life. Happily, with a little digging, I have found some extra income sources that fit this requirement. Keep reading to find out what they are. 


Buy-to-let 


If you are looking for a flexible way of bringing in more money why not consider investing in a buy to let property?




After all, not only do they require only a minimum of effort to maintain, but you can easily fit any work that does need doing to them around your other family commitments. 


Driving jobs 


The boom in the gig economy means there are plenty of flexible driving jobs to consider as well. You can also choose from passenger service driving with firms such as Uber and Lyft, or delivery-based options such as Just Eat. 


Indeed, if you want to earn good money flexibly there are many other delivery-based jobs to consider as well. A popular option of this type is to drive for Amazon at the moment. However, it is notable that many delivery firms charge drivers to access the latest and most convenient jobs. All except, firms like the one you will find at https://www.shiply.com/us/load-board as they offer free access to their load board. Something that means you can pick up all sorts of loads without the added costs, putting more money in your pocket. 


Become a pet sitter or walker 


Even bust parents that are confined by the routine of school pick-ups can bring more income by taking care of others' pets. There truly is no better way to make the walk to school and back more fun than to bring a pup along for their daily exercise. 


Of course, you can easily expand a pet walking business into a pet sitting one too, something you can get more info on at https://www.careeraddict.com/become-pet-sitter. After all, you will already have client contacts. Although it is worth bearing in mind that for it to work for busy parents taking animals into your own home may be a lot more flexible and convenient than having to visit someone else's property. 


Sell products at craft fairs, festivals, and conventions 


Now, if you have been following us for any amount of time you will have noticed that my other half does this with his business Demonhunter Bricks. However, you can choose just about any genre, niche, or type of product that you like. Of course, it's always better if you have a genuine passion for the product or the fandom you are working within because this will help you stay motivated even during the tough times. 


The great thing about being a vendor at fairs, festivals, and conventions is that they mainly happen across weekends and holidays which means they can fit in around family life. Also, you get all the fun of mixing with like-minded people, while getting to make money at the same time!
