Most people who are working a 9-5 job every day of the week get tired of it at some point. Even if you love your job it can be hard to feel satisfied with doing the same thing over and over again each day. However, if you are feeling a bit burnt out and you are looking to explore something new, there are a number of things that you can do to make money that are not boring and tiresome.
If you want to find a way to give back to the community that gives you a little bit of money to spend on yourself, you should look at becoming a care worker in your community. You could become a carer who looks after people with serious issues or impairments or you might want to become a companion to those who are lonely.
There are a number of different roles out there for people want to help care for others in the community. Organizations like Home Care Heroes are great for people who are looking to become a companion, because it helps to match you with people in your area that need your specific skills to help them. So, whether you want to take them out and about, help them with their household chores or you want to help them learn a new skill, the team at Home Care Heroes will help you to find the right client for you.
2. Invest your money
If you want to make some more money from the funds that you already have, you should consider becoming an investor. There are a number of different ways to invest your money these days, but most people like to invest in something solid that they know will return a significant profit, like investing in property.
Investing in property is probably one of the safest ways to invest your money because the value of your property will usually increase overtime at a fairly steady rate. Online marketplaces like Roofstock are great places for first-time investors to look for properties, because they allow you to see a variety of properties. You will be able to see all of the property's different features as well as the price point of each property, so that you can make a decision on what sort of property you would like to invest in, so that you can make the most out of your money.
If you are good at speaking another language or you have a background in teaching, you should consider becoming a tutor to make a little bit of money. These days, it is even easier to find a job as a tutor than it was in the past, because you can be an online tutor and work from the comfort of your own home. New online tutoring companies like Cluey, supply all the lesson content and online learning platform so all you have to do is turn up and teach. You can video call each other during the lesson so that it feels like you are tutoring them in person, even though you aren't. Also, if you become an online tutor, you can choose when you want to work each week, rather than having a standard set of hours like your typical 9-5 job. So, if you have other commitments, this type of job may be very good for you.
4. Rent out your space
Renting out your free space that you have in and around your home is a great way to make a little bit of extra money. A lot of people are renting out their space to people that need somewhere to stay, but you can also make money by renting out your free space to people who need somewhere to store their items. Websites like Spacer are great for people who want to rent out their extra space for storage because it helps to match you with people in your area who are looking for a space quickly and easily. Best of all, renting out a space in your home requires minimal effort and upkeep, so you won't have to do a lot to earn your money.
5. Earn from your wardrobe
A lot of people find themselves collecting fancy clothes and designer outfits. After a while, the wardrobe fills up, but a lot of outfits go unworn. Rather than leaving these expensive dresses to collect dust in the back of the closet, people are finding ways to earn money from their unused assets. The Volte is a site that lets people lend out their designer fashion to those who need a special outfit. The Volte explains that "access is the new ownership". Not only is this more environmentally friendly, but it means people can earn money from their unused assets while others can enjoy affordable designer clothing.
6. Write online
If you like to write and you have a little bit of time on your hands, you should consider becoming an online writer to make a little bit of money. Whether you want to be a copywriter and create content for online publications, or you want to become a ghost-writer and write a book for someone, there are a number of opportunities online for writers. If you want to become an online writer, you should try doing a bit of freelance work before you commit to anything serious. That way, you can figure out your style of writing and what works for you, so that you can go on to write other things within your chosen niche.
There are a number of things that you can do to make money if you need it. What is important to remember is that everyone has times where they feel like they are tired of their job, so just because you are over it doesn't mean that you should quit. If you are feeling burnt out, try taking a few days off and re-evaluating your feelings towards your job after you get back. If you are still feeling over it, then you should feel free to explore some new ways to make money but remember that if you are not enjoying your job anymore it is ok to quit.
