There are lots of ways to make money in the world. Some require more work (and you earn more money). Some are easy (but you don’t earn as much). Below we offer over 20 ideas on how you can make money, both in the real world or online from home. Which ways are best for you? It depends on how far you’re willing to go, but all are legitimate. We’ve tried to loosely rank these money-making ideas based on a combination of ease and pay:
- Become a driver for Uber and/or Lyft — Take people where they want to go, using your own car. Earn money per ride plus (possibly) tips. Work when you have availability instead of on a set schedule. Easy to get started, but must have own car and a willingness to drive strangers in it.
- Do customer service from home – See our Best Work from Home Job Opportunities for info on how you can sit on the phone at home, making money from well-known companies like Amazon, Enterprise, American Express, and more.
