18. Get Paid to Answer Questions
The rise of the internet in the past 20 years has created an entirely new economic sector centered around the transfer of knowledge and ideas. The biggest problem is sorting out correct information and providing adequate answers to people’s questions. If you are an expert in a particular field and want to help people find accurate answers to their questions in that field, you may be able to earn some money in the process.
Just Answer is one of many websites that allows people with certifiable credentials, such as a degree or job experience in a particular field, to answer questions that people post. You can make up to $35 per hour by providing thoughtful, meaningful answers to the clients’ inquiries. Not bad if you’re currently unemployed.
