Strapped for cash whilst at college? Taking up a side hustle could give you some extra income to live off. There are all kinds of ways to make money as a student that don’t require too much commitment. Here are just a few different options to consider.
Sell your old books
Many courses require you to buy books, but once you’ve finished using these books you can always sell them to make a bit of extra cash. You could try selling them to local book stores or you could sell them online (just remember that you will have to pay for postage if you’re selling them via eBay or Amazon).
Sell study notes
You can also make money by selling study notes – many students are willing to pay money to use other people’s notes and research. Stuvia.com is a great website for selling your study notes. You won’t make a lot of money doing this, but it’s still a small extra something.
Look out for paid college experiments
Your college may be running studies and experiments that require participants. Some of these may be willing to pay participants a small amount. It’s worth looking out for these as they could be a fun experience as well as earning you some money.
Answer online surveys
It’s possible to also make some money simply by answering surveys online. Many companies are willing to pay people to take surveys as a form of market research – sites like Swagbucks.com accumulate these surveys from across the web allowing you to pick and choose the ones that interest you. Generally, the longer and more niche surveys are better paid.
Try your hand at online gambling
Whilst you do have to be careful when gambling, it could be a way of making some extra money out of your spare change if you’ve got a good enough strategy. Sites like CasinoSeniors.com offer advice on how to bet and increase the likeliness of winning. You should always set yourself a gambling spending limit and you should stop once you’ve exceeded this to avoid making big losses.
Take up freelance jobs online
You may also be able to take up online freelance work using the likes of Fiverr.com. Such jobs could include writing reviews, writing press releases, photoshopping images, designing logos, building websites and managing social media (pretty much whatever digital skill you happen to possess). You can make a lot of money doing these jobs and you can charge your own rates, however you may have to build up some experience first before customers trust paying a large amount for your services.
Make money as an Uber driver
If you own a car, you could also make money as an Uber driver in your spare time. Whilst you will need to meet certain requirements, getting started is easy and you can pick the hours to work that suit you.
Decided to create The Real Work from home list! With so many bad avenue online in regards to have a online job and make money from home. Wanted to clear the air and look for the ones that are genuine.
My main point around your job, salary, online work :it is not eternal, you will need to adjust with the market.Let me explain:
- Peoples don’t keep their jobs for 20 years anymore
- More consultants than paid employees
- Benefits are not always in your advantage
- Less vacations
- Increase in the Part time job world
- Paid less (depending on your degree)
- And more…
This was my main concern to protect myself and my family , you never know how things will turn around. Protect at all cost your revenue so you could sleep better. Stress is one of the worst health issue you may have in your life, try to avoid beeing in this situation.
After reading a great article on FITnancials.com, i wanted to share my own view on this great topic.
Real Work from Home in todays world.
Sell articles on Amazon and how to do it. I took a quick look inside their 7 days free email course on how to start your own FBA Amazon and it is a great avenue…
- How to set up your Amazon Seller Account
- costs to sell on Amazon FBA
- Why Amazon is by far the best business to have today
- How to build your own six figure business

I was concern at first to share the Amazon option on how to sell online with this mega company. I don’t want to share any courses that will take too much out of your day to learn. That cost too much to start, have to buy in advance a lot of inventory to get started and more.
Simplicity is part of my philosophy, if it’s to complicated and i will not share the information.

Make money blogging is a possibility and even me at first, was really sceptical but after a couple of months it is a reality.
I don’t pretend to be rich or to make 5000$ a month, online you could be and become whoever you want and by becoming a blogger it is possible. It require a lot of work like anything else in life.
Why to start a blog in the first place?
- Make more money
- share your passion
- showcase your work
- helping peoples
- and more…
Sharing a quick story with my blog…
Started my blog in July 2018 just as a hobby to share my passion with personal finances, different ways to make money, how to save the right way and to live life the right way. At first it was interesting just to start writing informations to be put on the blog. Organise your mind in a way , your are abble to share your knowledges with others.
By having your blog, it will force you to be more accountable and more responsable. For me this was the case, i feel if i don’t take it seriously ,i will not be abble to help peoples that really need it. We all need one another to advance in life and by sharing your life experiences you are helping others to succeed at the same time.
