How you can earn more

A few tips that can help you determine the right extra income for you, and how best to use it:

  • plan in advance to benefit from local events;
  • take additional work in bad weather. If it is raining, snowing or just too damn hot, many people do not want to leave the house. If you have transportation, it can be a great chance to deliver food or work a taxi;
  • benefit from the upcoming holidays and seasonal events. During the holidays, e.g. New year and St. Patrick’s Day, the prices of services are rising.
