Nine Unconventional Ways To Make Money || Guest Post

You’re not really into going to the office, regular work just isn’t your thing and you want to avoid it at all cost. However, you do need to pay your rent and, well, eat. Luckily, there are some pretty unorthodox ways for you to earn the money you need. Here are some of them.
Personal shopper
This job can turn out to be a lot of fun if you find the right kind of a client. Basically, you would have to go shopping for other people, mostly elderly or those too busy to spend time walking through supermarket isles. However, if you score a client that’s rich and possibly famous, you might get to spend your days choosing beautiful clothes, shoes, jewellery or makeup.

Lice remover

No, we don’t mean the shampoo. There are people who specialize in removing lice. You can actually make a lot of money with this one, since most people are disgusted by lice, whether it’s on their or their kids’ heads. You would be required to make home visits, usually incognito, since people are usually embarrassed by the problem of lice.

Making money online

There are various ways to cash in on your online time. From starting a blog or becoming a freelance writer, to selling your crafts online or making and posting interesting videos, there’s money to be made on the internet. You can give video lessons in cooking, languages or anything else you’re good at, or you can take paid surveys online and receive cash or vouchers for popular brands as payment.

Living statues

You can pose as a living statue individually, or you can even find companies who hire people to do this job. This job would allow you to travel from one place to another and explore the world, while making money. Standing in busy city squares, street corners or parks can sometimes be difficult, though. You need to have a costume, wear a bunch of makeup and you have to be extremely patient to stand still and ignore the people who think it’s fun to hassle you.

Pet sitting

There are many people who walk dogs for a living, but dogs aren’t the only pets out there. You might end up caring for a horse, a snake, a skunk or even a wolf. You can even get paid to house-sit overnight or for a few days, taking care of the pet or pets while their owners are on vacation. You need to have some basic knowledge of the animal you’re sitting, and it would be a plus if you actually liked animals.

Waiting in lines

If you don’t mind standing on your feet for hours at a time, this might work for you. You can get paid to wait for concert or game tickets, stand in line at popular and busy restaurants, or to be among the first people to buy the latest tech gadgets. The upside of this is that you can use that time to read a good book, or even make even more cash online from your phone. Plus, you get to meet other people in the queue.

Mystery shopper

There are many companies who are looking to hire consumers to assess the ways their employees treat their customers. As easy as it sounds, you might have to do some awkward things, like asking silly questions that will make you look strange, buying something only to return it within minutes, or simply being rude to the salespeople. On the other hand, you can get paid well and even get to eat in some very nice places.

Posing for art classes

If your town or a city has an art school or any similar institution, there might be a job there for you. You’d need to be prepared to pose nude, as well as clothed, and you’d need to be patient enough to sit in the same position for as long as they require you to.

Professional Cuddler

Yup, this exists. Their job is, obviously, to cuddle with adults who are in need of some simple human contact. This job doesn’t involve any sexual activities and there are strict rules both the cuddler and the cudlee. To do this job, you have to be a good listener, since people sometimes also need to talk, or just weep. However, in order to stay safe, it’s best you join a professional cuddling service.
If you want a job that’s original and even a bit eccentric, there’s still hope for you. Not all of us are the same. The world would be a sad and boring place if we were. So, do what you like and try one or several of the listed jobs to find out what the perfect one for you is.
