How to make more money

With the rising costs of living, we are all focused on cutting our expenses and working smarter with our money. But cutting costs only goes so far.

One of the best tactics to improve your financial situation is to earn more money on the side.  Even if you have a job you enjoy, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t be making more money on top of that.

Here are a few tips on how to make more money:

Tip #1: Ask for a raise

Talk to your employer about your needs and find out whether you can get a raise in exchange for more responsibility.



Tip #2: Freelance

Also referred to as moonlighting. If your employer is unable to give you a raise, ask his/her permission to do what you do after-hours for small clients you find yourself.

Word-of-mouth referrals will quickly ensure that you have a steady flow of work to keep you busy and provide you with a continuous income

Tip #3: Sell you arts/crafts/hobbies

Sell your creative handmade items. What can be better than living out your creative flair, enjoying yourself and making money off it?  

You might just find yourself a new career and become the owner of a new successful company.

Tip #4: Do odd jobs for others

Do ad-hoc jobs (i.e. run errands, do garden or cleaning work) for friends and family members and even members of the community.

There is always a demand for handy person skills.  If you are good with measuring and can handle the basic power tools, your possibilities are endless. From hanging up a picture to changing a washer in a leaking tap – people are willing to pay for those small little jobs they can’t do themselves.

Tip #5: Look after homes/pets

Look after people’s homes or pets while they are on holiday. If they have busy schedules, you can walk their dogs on a weekly basis.



Do you find yourself in the unfortunate position where an additional income does not cover your expenses and debt?.  Don’t despair, give Debt Rescue a call today.
