Ideas for Making a Second Income

If your current job isn't paying enough, or the bills keep piling up no matter what you try to do, you're probably looking for second income opportunities. And there are many. Which second income opportunities are the right ones for you will depend on your current schedule, skills, abilities, and desires.

Many people take advantage of second income opportunities right in their own neighborhood. There are sometimes plenty of restaurants for instance, who need part time employees. And some restaurants allow you to make tips from the customers too, so you'll start getting money in hand from day one.

If you live in an area which has lots of families and you like kids, you can create a second income opportunity by starting a daycare or child transport service. Let's say for instance, that you're a mom who takes her kids to school every day. You could offer to take other kids to school each day too, for a small fee.

If you live in an area which has lots of dogs, you might try creating a second income opportunity with a dog sitting, walking, or exercise service. Doggy daycares are very popular, so if you're home during the day this might be a great second income opportunity for you. If you don't want to do a full day care service though, you can earn a second income by walking the dogs, taking them to the park for exercise, or caring for them when their owners are out of town.

Flea markets and swap meets are another excellent way to create a second income, and they work well for many people because you only do them on the weekends when you're not working at your regular job. You can get started making a second income with flea markets by selling some of your own stuff that you don't want or need anymore. If you have family and friends nearby, they'll often let you have their stuff they don't want anymore for free. And sometimes you can get a lot of free stuff by offering to clean out someone's garage, or offering to haul away things for them too.

An excellent expansion on flea markets is to make a second income with online auctions. These websites allow you to post new items for sale any time of the day or night, so you can easily work around your job schedule. You simply start by selling your own things as mentioned earlier, or by getting things from friends, family, or neighbors.

You can continue running either a flea market or online auction business as a source of second income, just by regularly going out and finding new items to sell. If you don't like cleaning out someone's garage to get things for free, then you can use some of the money you've made to buy stuff at yard sales instead. Then you can put a price on that product which is higher than you paid, and sell it yourself at the flea market or online auction.
