Sounds like in your situation, you are going to have to make your own job. Not knowing your age, or physical capabilities it is a little hard to make
any recommendations but here are a few things I know teachers and others have done for extra or regular income, even in these hard economic times.
Notary Public - not much money in that per se, but after you become a notary, go qualify as a signing agent. Lots of data on the net and you can earn
from several hundred to several thousands of dollars per month depending upon the amount of time you are willing to put into it.
Contact small businesses, mom and pop type operations, and ask them
if you can paint that old sign out front, or a front entrance, that may have that worn out look. Let them pay for the paint and supplies, and charge
them a reasonable amount for your labor. You might be surprised to find out how many take you up on that offer.
Offer to do similiar type jobs for individuals, place a small ad in the newspaper, etc. Do you know how many people hate to clean out
their garage, attic, etc.? If you have the time, and the cost to them
is low or reasonable, they have the money.
If you are in a small town, offer to assist others with a move. Most small towns don't have moving companies, and not everyone has relatives or
friends available to assist when they need to move.
Also consider small businesses who need somebody to deliver appliances, furniture, etc.
Contact maid services or apartment complexes, especially during the summer which is their busiest time of year. Do you know how many
people move in the summertime? It's a lot and they need people to clean up to get ready for the next resident. And while in the cleaning mode, hotels
and motels constantly need housekeepers. Check the ads, they usually never stop running them.
Just a few ideas. Hopefully one might work for you.
