What do you do for 'extra' money?

What side gigs do you do for an extra buck or two?

Amazon Mechanical Turk, writing ads in my spare time, $1 per 150 word paragraph.

Tutoring organic chemistry for cash, yields an extra $2500 per year.

Haha everyone I know hated that fricking class.


Things I do for extra cash: Look at craigslist "GIGS" section and "etc" tab under jobs. There is always someone that needs a couch or some shite moved and I have a tahoe that can move just about anything. Also other random shite is always on there "I need a ride across the bridge" or" someone to take me to BR" and I can pick up $50 for a couple hours of work doing anything from moving someone in to serving food at an event.

I also bet sports and happen to win more than I lose so that helps, not for everyone though.

I'm still in grad school so I have more opportunities to make side cash than someone with a career already.

AMT is a site offered via Amazon Web Services where people pay small amounts of money for each task completed, anywhere from a penny for a 1 second task, to 0.50-2.00 for a survey. Most of it isn't really worth your time but there are some diamonds in the rough on this site. I usually make $75 bucks a month extra, or more if I have more dead time at work.

Are they hard tasks? I wasn't sure what some of them were but I don't have an account.

What are you buying tomorrow? Do you have a plan each day or just watch it like a football game and react?

I'm too busy these days, but in college, I:

- Tutored (Algebra, Calculus, Econ, Finance, Accounting)
- Hung plasma tv's (everyone was going crazy over this and it wasn't hard to do)
- Bought crawfish from farmers and delivered them to people in BR. (could make about $1000 per day)

Curious, do you trade individual stocks or indices? Do you play multiple positions? Seems pretty hard to make "extra" cash just casually playing the stock market

Run a small LLC marine/industrial sales business my Dad started on the side. My dad can barely write an email so I do 95% of the work on the computer. All money I have made has been reinvested in the company.

Where did you acquire such a talent?

How much $ do you think you need to be successful?

And what platform do you use?

I just started doing it casually. It developed from there.
Probably need a hundred thousand or so to begin with to buy enough shares per trade to make the broker commissions irrelevant. I use Schwab's StreetSmart Pro.

Any reason you're actually buying the shares rather than buying the options?
