Wouldn’t it be great if you could set your own schedule, work on your own time, and determine your pay? In short, you’d be your own boss.
This doesn’t have to be a dream. This year, say no to summer jobs. Here are some ways you can become your own boss.
1. MAKE SOMETHING
Let your creativity shine. Get paid to write articles and blogs. Do graphic design work and sell your finished products to clients. You can also make tangible goods, like artwork, jewelry, toys, clothes, and food. The sky is literally the limit.
2. DELIVER SOMETHING
You can also get a job doing delivery. We don’t mean pizza delivery, either. As a grocery delivery driver, you’ll pick up food items from the grocery store and bring them to people’s doorsteps.
You can also become a chauffeur, working for services like Lyft or Uber. You can use your own car to drive people around where they need to go. You choose which assignments you accept, which lets you determine your earning potential.
3. COACH PEOPLE
Share your life skills with others and get paid for it. Help people navigate romantic relationships, familial relationships, personal wellbeing, professional advancements, and more.
4. TEACH SOMETHING
You don’t have to have a teaching degree to be a teacher. What’s a skill you have? Maybe you’re adept at playing the piano or you know a variety of languages. Perhaps you’re a great math tutor or you’re really good at painting with watercolors. Charge people to learn from you. You can offer one-time lessons or even come up with your mini curriculum.
5. CARE FOR KIDS
Babysitting is a job option even as an adult, especially since parents are busier than ever. You can grow fast with this career. The better you are with kids, the better your reputation will be, which means other stressed parents will call you to watch their children.
This summer, make a change. Be your own boss and finally enjoy some of that summer sun.
