On February 8th I wrote a post about Cleaning out Your Computer, I mentioned that February 8th celebrated two fun holidays. February 8th was also Laugh and Get Rich Day. In honor of that special day I bring you today’s post on ways you can enjoy life while making money. Here are three side gigs that will leave you laughing all the way to the bank.
Steve Gadlin started a business drawing stick figure cats, and actually makes good money doing it. He pitched his idea to ABC’s shark tank in 2012 believing he was their as comic relief, he actually walked away with a business partner. It just goes to show that if you market yourself correctly you can make money doing just about anything.
Write jokes for people:
Comics will sometimes pay for other people to write their jokes. You can also start a fiverr gig and offer to write a joke as a gift for someones birthday, anniversary, or any other occasion. If you have a great sense of humor and often hear from friends, family, and co-workers that you are hilarious you may want to think about turning those great jokes of yours into cash. Write down the really good ones and sell them via fiverr. For more information about this great site check out my post here.
Sell your used socks and shoes:
So this one is probably a little gross, but if I could get past the eww factor of this I could totally make bank on it. There are weird people out their who will purchase used clothing as a part of a fetish. Basically all you need to do is where a pair of socks or shoes, write your story about how long you wore them, what you did while wearing them. Take a picture of the socks and your bare feet, place the socks or shoes in a ziplock bag after wearing (no washing) and post your story to craigslist or ebay. You then mail off the item when it is purchased. They get the story as well. A pair of socks you paid 2 or 3 dollars for can easily become 8, 9, or ten. Some people will even pay more. If you do this with shoes, you can make hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars. If I was responsible when it came to putting things in the mail and could get past the gross factor of what was likely going to be happening to those socks or shoes I would totally do this, and I would laugh when I saw the money arrive in my bank account. I highly recommend that if you do this you go through ebay so you do not have to meet the person to make the delivery. Most people want to meet when you go through craigslist.
So their you have it people three ways you can make bank and get a good laugh in as well. This post was sponsored by Kinnectpay, for more information on how you can get paid to be apart of this great social networking site please see my post here.
