10. Sell Crafts Online While Unemployed
If you’re a crafty person who enjoys sewing, making jewelry, crocheting, or any number of skills that can be used to make things that people use, then you can turn your talent into a way of making money. While sewing shops on Main Street are pretty much a thing of the past, platforms like Etsy allow people to sell their hand-made goods to those who are looking for something more meaningful than mass-produced purchases from Amazon and Wal-Mart.
There are other platforms where you could sell your crafts, including eBay. If you have a real niche skill, that could be worth something, try to find a niche platform to go with it to sell your products to interested people. Building up an online store can be much work. But successful Etsy and similar stores have turned into meaningful incomes. If you have the time and are unemployed, this could be a solid option.
