Today thanks to the internet and modern technological innovations we can improve our skills, learn new languages, make new connections and more, from our laptop or smartphone. On the other hand, the lifestyle of the digital nomad became the new dream job that lets you travel the world and work under a palm tree if you want to. This is all possible because of access to the internet. In our article, we have compiled a list of 4 ways that you can try right now to earn extra cash and achieve your personal goals.
Play Table Casino Games
If you have certain previous knowledge and skills related to table casino games, you can test them along with your luck to win various cash prizes and other rewards. Although you can play slot games, which are very easy for anyone to learn, and they are purely based on luck. While many types of table games, especially skill-based casino games like poker, blackjack, baccarat, require players to possess specific skills to be able to play the games.
Fortunately, most online casino sites have an option for players to access demo mode, a mode where they can play for free. This means that you can improve your knowledge and skills while you play for fun in free mode. Furthermore, it is good to know that many sites provide players with access to regular promotions. On the other hand, new members get amazing welcome bonuses. But, always keep in mind that even when you’re a professional poker player, for example, casino games are still games of chance.
Become a Freelancer
In case you want to have a steady influx of money, but still able to enjoy the flexibility of remote work, then try freelancing. But, it is a highly competitive industry, so be ready to fight for the jobs you want to work for. This includes crafting a good portfolio that showcases your work, building a good resume and skills. Also, if you already have specific expertise and experience for the job position, don’t forget to add that in your application. Check sites like Upwork, Simply Hired, PeoplePerHour, Toptal for more information, and create your profile so you can apply for jobs.
Sell Your Clothes
Sustainable fashion is, fortunately, getting more popular among the public, which means thrift clothes, vintage, and second-hand clothes are also fashionable. This means that you can ultimately sell well-kept cotton tops, and of course, any pieces that you don’t want to wear anymore. In case you have designer pieces or pieces from brands like ZARA, Mango, H&M, you can sell them on Vinted, where customers are buying high street brands.
On the other side, you can try Depop, eBay, ASOS Marketplace, Rebelle, Etsy, among other sites. In case this is too complicated for you, your personal Facebook account has a lot of potential, so you can always post pictures of your items there. However, keep in mind that you need to offer high-quality items, even if you don’t want to continue selling your clothes on the site.
Become a Teacher
Being an online teacher isn’t specifically related to academic subjects and exams like TOEFL, SAT, GRE, GMAT. Although, you can definitely find sites where you can tutor students and help them improve their grades. The good news is that you can also become a language teacher and get paid for teaching people English, for instance.
This is especially an advantage when you’re a native speaker. But, also a site like Italki offers an opportunity for native speakers across the globe to provide lessons for students that want to learn their language. This is a great source of income, and it can be a good opportunity for you to learn a foreign language and expand your connections.
