There’s money to be made out there. If you are up against the wall financially for the short-term, or if you have been facing long-term money problems, there is money to be had. It takes some patience, commitment, and ingenuity, but you can make money fast.
There’s money out there!
Sell your blood. Your body makes more blood plasma than you need. It makes plasma others can use. It’s an easy way to make a difference to someone else and put money in your pocket. Blood banks have found they cannot rely on volunteer donations, so they pay you to give blood — under certain conditions.
The rules may vary, but most services require you be 18-68 years of age and weigh 110 pounds or more. The first time you donate you must complete forms providing your health history and current medical condition. Certain conditions will prevent your contributions.
While the American Red Cross limits your donation to once every 28 days, private blood banks will pay $20, $50, or more. The more you weigh the more you can produce to increase your payment.
Rent a room. Multiple websites offer platforms letting you rent out space in your home. Air BnB may be the best known, but there are scores of others. If there are no local prohibitions, you can become a landlord.
You may want to talk to your lawyer about drawing up rental agreements and insuring your liability. But you can rent to short or long term guests. A clean room and bath in your house may attract students from a local university, tourists on a quick trip through town, or vacationers looking to save money on hotel costs.
Drive for the money. Uber, Lyft, and other competitors always need drivers. Uber is paying new drivers a sign-on bonus of $500 to $1,000 if you complete 50 to 100 drives in the first 30 days.
The official Lyft site offers a $1,000 bonus to new drivers with 125 rides in their first 30 days. And, increasing ridesharing services are showing up with specialized services in cities and regions.
Rent yourself out. You can earn money fast and regularly by providing personal services. Neighbors need people to walk their dogs, care for their kids, or landscape their property. They want their cars detailed, their dinners made, and their food delivered.
Others earn money as personal shoppers or secret shoppers. You can run errands in person or provide virtual assistance online. Or, you could be a substitute teacher, internet influencer, or gig-economy freelancer.
You’re not alone!
As R.L. Adams says in Entrepreneur,
“In a bind? Need some fast cash? We’re talking here about small bursts of capital, not millions of dollars — enough to satisfy your monthly obligations or get that nagging creditor to stop calling you!”
It may be an unexpected car repair. You may have sudden medical bills. Or, your credit cards may be catching up with you. Whatever the reason, you should be looking for ways to make money quick.
