There are literally hundreds of ways to make money quickly.  All you need is a little creativity and a lot of hustle. Many of you reading this blog post need more money right now.  Here are 10 of my most effective strategies for making consistent money fast.

  1. Closet Makeover. Most ladies need/want a closet make over. There simply is not enough room for our shoes. So, if you are handy with a drill, purchase some closet make-over hardware and start with your friends. You could also advertise locally on Facebook and Craigslist. Don’t forget the upsale – every new closet deserves some shoe trees, cushion hangers and belt hooks.
  2. Gardening Services. Whether you know how to grow plants, flowers or herbs, many people will buy your services. You could upsale by holding gardening classes and selling supplies. Remember to take pictures of your success to show your expertise.
  3. Garage Cleaning. Many garages are simply a mess. If you are a good organizer, you can make great side money by cleaning out garages. A great upsale opportunity is helping the owners plan a garage sale and splitting the profits.
  4. Furniture Assembly. Single women and busy men would gladly pay someone to assemble furniture. If you have a truck you could also pick up and deliver the furniture for an additional fee.
  5. Mail Box Designer. Creating custom mail boxes can lead to a pile of money. Target high-end neighborhoods where the desire for curb appeal runs high. You could also install the mail boxes for an additional fee.
  6. Baby Nursery Designer. Help parents create themes for newborns and older children. If you have the skills to paint murals or lay wall paper, that’s ever more appealing.
  7. Social Media Assistant. If you like social media, you can help people set up their accounts and teach them how to use them. In addition, many small businesses will pay you to help them maintain their accounts and grow their following. Don’t know social media, most of the websites offer free classes.
  8. Software Instructor. Use your computer whiz skills to make some extra money. Many after-care companies, camps and adult education facilities would love to hire you. You could also offer private lessons in the home or to small business owners.
  9. Teaching anything you know can be profitable. Many people are interested in learning new hobbies, languages and skills. You might also want to upsale by making videos to help reinforce what you are teaching and start making money online.
  10. Window and Blind Cleaning. Spring time is the ideal time to really market this service. It’s easy to get started by distributing fliers throughout the neighborhood. You could even upsale window decals and blinds.
