Ways to make a lot of money without another full-time job or degree




Are you looking for ways to make a lot of money without another full-time job or degree?

Here are 10 ideas to consider:

  1. Start a business: One of the most effective ways to make a lot of money without a full-time job or degree is to start your own business. You can start a business in a variety of fields, such as e-commerce, consulting, freelance writing or editing, or social media management. You can also consider starting a more traditional business, such as a bakery, landscaping company, or home cleaning service.

  2. Invest in real estate: Investing in real estate can be a great way to make money without a full-time job or degree. You can invest in rental properties and earn passive income from the rent paid by tenants, or you can flip houses for a profit. You can also consider investing in commercial real estate, such as office buildings or storage units.

  3. Invest in the stock market: Another way to make a lot of money without a full-time job or degree is to invest in the stock market. While investing in the stock market carries some risk, it can also be a very rewarding way to grow your wealth. You can start by opening a brokerage account and choosing stocks that align with your investment goals and risk tolerance.

  4. Sell your stuff: If you have items that you no longer need or use, you can make money by selling them. You can sell your stuff through online marketplaces like eBay, Poshmark, and Depop, or you can have a garage sale or sell items at a flea market. You can also consider selling items that you make or create, such as crafts, jewelry, or artwork.

  5. Rent out your stuff: Another way to make money without a full-time job or degree is to rent out items that you don't use very often. For example, you can rent out your bike or camera through a peer-to-peer rental platform like Spinlister or Fat Lama. You can also rent out your car through platforms like Turo.

  6. Rent out your skills: If you have a particular skill or talent that others might be interested in, you can make money by renting out your skills. For example, you can offer to teach a class, give music lessons, or do makeup for events. You can advertise your services on social media or through local community centers or schools.

  7. Participate in paid surveys or focus groups: Another way to make money without a full-time job or degree is to participate in paid surveys or focus groups. There are many websites and companies that are willing to pay for your opinions and feedback. Just be sure to do your research and only sign up with reputable companies to avoid scams.

  8. Sell your photos: If you have a talent for photography, you can make money by selling your photos online. There are many stock photo websites, such as ShutterStock and iStock, that will pay you for your photos. You can also sell your photos directly to businesses and individuals through your own website or social media.

  9. Offer your services: Finally, if you have a particular skill or talent that you can offer to others, you can make money by offering your services. This could include anything from tutoring or teaching to pet sitting or house cleaning. You can advertise your services on social media or through local community centers or schools.

  10. Do odd jobs for others: If you're willing to do just about anything to make a little extra cash, consider offering your services for odd jobs. How do you find people willing to pay you for odd jobs? First, start at your own home, or a friend or family member. Make a video, or take before/after pictures of the work you did. Once you have pictures and/or videos, post them to any and all social accounts you have. This will help you get your first few leads. You can also ask friends and family for referrals. A little more expensive way to do this would be to make yard signs and place them in yards of anyone willing to allow it.


There are so many ways to get out there and make a lot of extra money without having to get new skills or get another full-time job. Above, we list 10 ideas, but I assure you there are so many other ways to make it happen. Get creative, or don't, and just use the ideas above or Google other ideas.
