26. Freelance Writing
Did you do well in high school and college English courses and now find yourself needing extra cash? You can pull those skills out of hiding and put them to use by doing some freelance writing. Don’t expect to become a best-selling author by writing articles for websites, but you can earn enough to pad your bank account.
Platforms like freelancer.com can help you start showcasing your skills, finding clients, building a profile, and earning money. Once you have enough of a profile established, and especially if you are an expert in a niche field, you can start querying publication outlets such as magazines and PR firms to get some higher-paying clients.
