Consider Talent And Experience For Extra Income Ideas

Aug 17, 2007
With escalating prices across the board and most incomes failing to increase at an even pace, many people are looking for extra income ideas and there are a few ways to improve the cash flow into your house. If you put some thought into your hobbies and activities you enjoy you can certainly figure some way to turn a hobby into a part time income.

For example, a person who likes to build things such as small pieces of furniture or birdhouses or squirrel feeders can take them to one of many craft shops who take consignments for sale. They will usually collect at least 10 percent of the selling price as their fee and some will offer rental space for you to display your work for sale. Rental of your booth plus the percentage you pay is generally covered by sales of your products, but they handle everything, including paying your state's sales tax, is applicable.

A person who likes to sew and is good at it may be able to bring in extra income by offering repair service for clothing or alterations. Many dry cleaning companies subcontract alterations to tailors who work out of their home and by contacting them in your area could bring in some part time business. There may also be a market in specialty window treatments. If people have trouble finding the right fit for curtains they may be interested in your services to create a special look just for them.

There are places online that offer reminder services for upcoming events and important days such as a spouse's birthday or anniversary. These flourish due to the hectic schedules of many people who do not remember a day until the morning of the event. You could offer to send people an email a day or so ahead of time as a reminder of a special event approaching. Most people would appreciate getting a gentle reminder in their email box to make sure the day is not forgotten.

Many small companies will send out special advertising pieces throughout the year and often have their own staff involved in addressing the pieces to their customers as well as stamping them and taking them to the post office. A service can be created that will maintain their mailing list the computer, which can be printed out on labels, or directly onto the cards, to reduce the time spent addressing them. While most projects would be small, your income from this type business from one source would be small, but if you can contract with numerous businesses you may be able to realize a decent part time income.

Consider your talents and consider your resources and determine the type of part time business you could work from your home in order for you to earn extra income.
