Let’s face it, sometimes the 9-to-5 job isn’t for everyone. Working in the office all day and then you are only getting paid 12 times in a year. It can seem mundane and restricting your life and how you want to live it. Luckily there are lots of different ways that you can earn money outside of the normal jobs available that give you more freedom, more flexibility and will allow you to live the life you want to live in the way you want to live it.
One of the first ways that you can do this is by being a social media influencer. It is quite a saturated environment now there’s always room for more people to come in and take it by stone. One of the best ways to grow an account like this is to have a certain niche that illustrates that you are an expert in that field and people will come to you for guidance and advice on what you’re posting about whether that is parenting, travel or living a luxurious life. The way that you make money from this is through sponsored posts where brands will pay to have their products and services featured on your account, affiliate marketing which is where you share your favourite items and if your audience clicks through and purchase you’ll get a portion of that sale, another option is that some influencers will create and sell ebooks and digital products within the niche to their audience which give them a passive income.
You can also look to work as a freelancer or sole trader. This is where you will look for doing different jobs and getting quotes to do it and getting paid from different companies. There is so much that you can do with this like Uber deliveries, truck shipments and online services like accounting and marketing. So if you are interested in truck shipments for example then you could find a job that works for you on Shiply. By doing something like this you can pursue a job in something you love, have passion for and genuinely enjoy. They say as long as you love what you do you will never work a day in your life. You can opt to look for more flexible job roles that you can do anywhere.
You can also get freedom and flexibility by having a job as a writer and this could be an author for books or even a blogger online. As long as you have Wi-Fi and a laptop you can write anywhere in the world in this career so you could travel and have a travel blog which means that you can explore the world all while working at the same time. And if you simply just want to go on holiday or visit friends and family you can write on your laptop and you don’t need to be anywhere in particular so it gives you that extra flexibility and extra freedom that you’re after.
