Plumbing may not be the most glamorous profession, but it’s certainly profitable. Plumbers are in high demand, and their skills are essential for keeping our homes and businesses running smoothly.

A user says, “I had a plumbing backup and needed someone to clear the line. I found a guy on Craigslist who charged $69 for the snack. He came and had my line cleared in 20 minutes. He told me he had just moved to Tampa from Ohio with his family because his 8-year-old daughter needed medical treatment. He bought a used plumbing snake for $400 and started a side hustle as a plumber. He was making about $400 daily, seven days a week.”

SELLING UNIQUE FRUITCAKES

The world of baking offers a tempting combination of passion and profit. While the path to success isn’t always easy, the rewards can be sweet indeed.

A user says, “I bake fruitcakes from scratch, using pecans instead of walnuts and cream sherry instead of harsher liquors. I use 1/2-pound loaf pans, so no one is stuck with many leftovers. I can easily do a few hundred dollars or more and still have folks clamoring for more.”

FLEXIBLE SIDE HUSTLES

Looking for ways to supplement your income without a long-term commitment? Consider these quick side hustles.

A user says, “Dog/cat/house sitting, a substitute teacher at local schools, door dash, Uber, if you are mechanically inclined – handyman, donate plasma, artsy/crafty – make stuff and sell it at local fairs, etc. Search for video gigs or create a free website to advertise your videography/video production skills. Leave business cards with a link to the site at local businesses; advertise your skills on Facebook and Reddit; join the wedding and other event-related groups, etc.”

SELLING PLANT CUTTINGS AND SEEDLINGS

A user says, “I sell plant cuttings and seedlings. In the spring, I sell my extra peppers and tomatoes, and then I have some well-loved houseplants that need a haircut occasionally. I root the cuttings in water and eventually pot them and sell them. It’s not a tonne of cash or anything, but it’s a nice way for my hobby to pay for itself over time.”

SELLING DRIED CANDY DELIGHTS

Candy, a universal treat loved by all ages, holds immense potential for profit at flea markets.

A user says, “I have a flea market booth. The most lucrative part is the freeze-dried candy I buy from a local business. I buy in bulk, have 100% markup, and still sell candy. It helps that the local mall has the same stuff for 3x the price. People want to try it but don’t want to pay those prices, so they get excited when they see mine and buy 3 for the price of 1 mall candy. It’s silly, but I’m happy with it.”

PARTICIPATING IN A CLINICAL TRIAL

While crucial for advancing medical research, clinical trials can also offer individuals a chance to contribute to science and earn compensation for their time and effort.

A user says, “I do clinical studies. I was on an antibody one where the total pay was $6k. I got $300-700 monthly for a blood draw and one infusion for the first few months. And once I complete it next month, I get a $1,500 “bonus” for completing the whole thing.”

TEACHING ENGLISH AND WATCHING COOL MOVIES

Speaking English fluently is a valuable skill in demand worldwide, and online teaching platforms offer a lucrative opportunity to share your knowledge and earn money.

A user says, “I “teach English online; I chat with people. One of them is a kid whom we do 50/50 reading and watching Pokémon or Godzilla. So I get paid minimum wage to watch Pokemon and old Godzilla movies.”

VALET PARKING

Sometimes we have to think outside the box and offer services to help the situation. A user shares, “My partner and I played valet for college football games. We got paid hourly (I think it was $11/h), but the tips at the night’s end made it worth it.”

PET SITTING FOR DOCTORS

For animal lovers, pet sitting offers an ideal way to combine passion with financial gain.

A user says, “I pet sit. I even take them to the park and on walks. Now, if they go out of town, they ask me to pet-sit. I know some people charge the same 80 a night that my pet sitter charges me, but they give me 40. Plus, they bring me a little knickknack from wherever they travel to.

MANDRAKE GROWER AND SELLER

If you are artsy, there is no limit to what you can sell. A user says, “I grow mandrakes and sell them on eBay. Real mandrakes, not little dolls. I’m also an artist and published writer.”

While not a get-rich-quick scheme, surveys can help earn quick money.

A user says, “I have a full-time job. I use a lot of survey sites/apps as well as couponing/receipt apps. I average about $100-150 weekly on surveys and apps, depending on the work that comes in.”

MODEL FOR ART CLASSES
