Some of these are good to have because of the constant day to day urgent auditions and you can even earn money while traveling.
While some of these may not strike your fancy, I am sure you can find something right for your specific needs and that you can easily succeed in.
Let's take a look at them!
I did a post on this awhile back, but jobs usually range from Product Specialists at Wal-Mart to pouring Wine samples at your local grocery store. I love working for some of the Touring brands that stop by for Spring and summer festivals. The hours are pretty long but usually, it's for more than a day and you are working with others so it's never boring and you make really good money.

Bloggers also make money writing sponsored posts. These often pay really well but depending on your blog niche, sponsored posts usually are triggered towards certain niches and topics.
**The most profitable blogs I have seen out there are primarily Parenting and DIY ( Do It Yourself) Niches. If you are a fitness and travel enthusiast, those are definitely on top as well. If you are a food junkie and love sharing Delicious and particularly healthy recipes, get on that. The hardest part is getting traffic but once you get that on lock, the rest should fall into place.
3. Uber/ Lyft Driving
Personally, I am not comfortable yet with driving complete strangers around in my car for a few reasons. I know however that both do pay and know several people who do drive for one or the other and I haven't heard any complaints. I am still on the fence for it myself, but if you are willing to give it a try yourself, just download the one of the apps or both and follow the instructions when applying to be a driver and I am sure it's a fast process as they seem to always be looking for more drivers.
4. Pet-Sitting/ Baby Sitting
I know quite a few younger people in the business that often do this on the side as well as work their part-time jobs. As long as you are dependable build good repor with a few clients, it could turn into a nice little business. Just don't go quitting your other Day-Job quite yet.
5. Online Selling ( Etsy, Ebay, Poshmark )
If you are a fashionista and glam expert, Poshmark is a big moneymaker for those who maybe trying to get rid of some of their gently used or even really good thrifty finds. I am signed up myself but honestly only opened up to browse and haven't really used it.
You can find some really good tips and secrets on Pinterest from those who actively use it as well as seen some good revenue come in.
For the really talented and artistic people, I hear ETSY is a good one for this. I haven't used it yet either but I hear it's pretty popular.
Not to mention, marketing to your fellow actor friends who are in need of head-shots. We all know how much these need to be updated. There are ways to sell your photos through apps. Possibilities are endless with this avenue.
9. Coaching/Teaching Audition Technique/Audition Taping Services
It is possible to make some good side-income from these as long as you know exactly what you are doing. For those who have been taping their own auditions for awhile and have the right equipment and working knowledge of what a good audition tape should look and sound like, this could be a good choice for you. I would highly recommend getting some feedback from a mentor before getting officially started to make sure you have everything set up right and familiar with each CD' s preferences.
The one thing that makes it a bit easier is through the power of Content Marketing on Social Media. You can make an Instagram account dedicated to your store. Facebook now has that LIVE feature where you can record videos promoting your products in real time. Linking all of these to a blog will also help.
