In these difficult times no doubt you have been aware for some time that you need to earn extra money – but perhaps you are not sure how to go about it. Where do you start? What do you do? What can you do? It’s a problem, isn’t it? However, if you go about it methodically then it’s not really such a problem after all.
All of us have some skills that we have learnt, picked up from others or perhaps they come naturally to us. What do you do already, or have done in the past, to earn a living? What are your hobbies? Can you adapt something that you do for fun into an experience from which you can make extra money?
For instance, do you do the servicing and repairs on your own car? That’s a skill that many people would envy particularly when they have to pay the bill to the garage for even a simple job. Why not get a few people together and show them how to do simple checks on a car? Many owners have no idea what goes on under the bonnet even to check the oil level. How does one change a wheel? Where do you top up the cooling fluid and also the screen wash? Don’t forget the ladies, there are many who would love to know how to do simple checks and maintenance on their vehicles.
Do you do your own painting and decorating? At the price tradesmen charge, many people who don’t know one end of a paintbrush from the other, would be delighted to be shown how to decorate a room. The same goes for gardening, pruning bushes, growing exotic plants etc. If you know how to do something to a reasonable standard, and you don’t necessarily have to be an expert, you will find that others will pay you to show them how to do it.
The main thing is to do something, get started. Thinking for too long will not pay the bills so make a decision and set yourself a deadline to start your own home based business. You may be surprised to find that is easier than you think.
