This option requires a little bit of skill, but is a very lucrative option as you can make around 24$/hr this way. All you have to do transcribe audio into text.

Sell Your Advice

If you're great at your PR job, why not sell your advice and make some cash on the side? Most specialized professions are very marketable online, and people are always looking for freelance specialists to help them out. Some sites you can use to do this are, Kgb, SmallbizAdvice, Chegg (Formally StudentOfFortune), and JustAnswer.

Rent Out What You Have

Do you have an extra bedroom in your apartment? Rent it out on airbnb. Do you have a wide array of tools? Rent them out. Some other things you can rent out are lawnmowers, camping gear, snow blowers, and even cars and boats.
