Is your bank account dwindling? Are your savings not enough to start your dream startup? Do you want to pursue your master's in the best foreign university? Do you simply want to earn extra income with your full-time job?
If the above questions resonate with your current situation and the answer is yes, then let us tell you that you are not alone! Everyone in this world would like to have some extra income because let`s face the fact- our salary is just not enough to fulfill our dreams.
While some of us would want to take admission to a world-class foreign university, some would like to pursue the online business course, others might be saving to turn their startup business idea into a reality. But with lots of fixed expenses, it becomes difficult to save much with a regular 9 to 5 job. And, when you have lots of things on your list to achieve, you run out of time.
But the good news is that you can eliminate some of your financial stress by earning extra income with your Full-Time Job.
Yes, you heard it right!
So whether you are looking to stock up cash for your startup business idea or make new investments, a few thousand rupees can certainly bring a nice change into your life. If you are wondering how to do it, let`s get started:
1. Start a Service Business
A service business can be launched without a large network, courtesy of the internet and social media. To start a service business you do not need many overhead expenses. You can simply start your business by telling people in your social circle about the services you are offering and how will it make their lives easy and better. Ask them to spread the word and who knows, you might end up founding a successful startup business.
There are many services like dinner catering, event planning, freelance writing, digital marketing, social media brand promotion, or online marketing. Start by crafting an amazing outreach email to get yourself up and running in a couple of days. You can also take help from a business coach to guide you.
2. Invest in Real Estate
Many full-time working people do not like the idea of becoming a landlord, especially in India for various reasons. But being cash-strapped is the major one. However, you can invest in a cheaper property and rent it out. From the monthly rent that you will receive, you can pay out your EMIs or save up the money. It can also be a lucrative way to earn passive income during your retirement years.
3. Start an E-store
If you have a dream of starting your business store or a fashion outlet, you will have to think about doing a lot of research for products, manufacturers, market your site and figure out how to fulfill orders. Along with all that you will also have to take care of customer service and refund requests.
But managing all that can be a little daunting with a full-time job. Hence, the right way to do it is to start a store and develop a presence directly on Amazon or Flipkart without the need to take on so many roles. Many sellers directly ship their products to their fulfillment center and never touch the product itself.
4. Become a Motivational Coach
If you have an amazing way to connect with people and leave an impact that can make their lives better, you can become a motivational coach too. You can make thousands of rupees by hosting events without aiming for sign-ups and high-profile guest speakers.
These days more than physical challenges, people are suffering from mental challenges. Most often they feel discouraged and demotivated. A motivational coach shows the right path to his audience by sharing his life-changing experiences that include both struggles and success. Once you secure a loyal audience, you can start charging for an event and grow your network by using various social media platforms.
5. Get paid for your Hobby
Dig a little deeper and you will find out that we all have quite a few hobbies that we can use to earn extra income. For instance one of my friends loves painting glass bottles. Now she has started selling it through her Instagram profile along with her full-time job.
Take inventory of what you love doing in your free time. If you love trekking, you can do a professional course and go out in the mountains on weekends with a group to earn that extra money.
These ideas can help you earn extra money while you have a full-time job. If you want to start a startup, you can take our ‘Entrepreneurship course’. This course is an online business course that prepares you to face the challenges of the business world. It also helps you to build a startup from the scratch.
