Get rich quick schemes are usually just that – schemes that usually end up actually costing you money. There are some things fathers can do to make money quickly, though.
Selling some of your old or unwanted items is one tip parents can use to earn some quick cash. There are several options for selling everything from baby gear and toys to furniture and clothing. Organizing a good, old-fashioned yard sale is one. Working with a local consignment store is another. Or, many dads and moms choose to go the high-tech route by posting their items for sale on websites like Craigslist or eBay.
Another way to supplement your income and earn some extra money is to turn your car into a billboard. Websites like WrapRide.com help connect individuals who are willing to have their cars shrink wrapped with an advertisement to companies interested in increasing their visibility. This option can earn you as much as $3,000 per month or more and some companies even provide you with a new car to drive around.
Doing odd jobs can also help you make some extra money. Think about the things you are good at and enjoy doing and go from there. Options include painting, home repairs, landscaping and lawn maintenance as well as other tasks. Advertise online or make a flier and distribute it around your community to get started. Remember that word-of-mouth is the best advertising so ask satisfied clients to help you get the word out!
