What are some of the hobbies that I can take up, that will allow me to earn some extra cash?

I have some free time after my university classes now, and I'm wondering if I can start something that I can continue in my working life that will help me earn a little extra cash

Tried dropshipping and online surveys. Dropshipping is profitable but can be quite a hassle especially if the product delivered is faulty or wrong as you'll have to process an exchange for your customer. Online surveys take a long time to accumulate points before being able to cash out just a small sum of money.

If you have a driving license, can consider grab or the other alternatives out there. Tuition is also a lucrative trade, and it is currently O levels season. Lego used to be a good thing to get into, buying and selling sets. But the market prices have crashed of late. Only thing I made was getting my hands early on 2 sets of 75192 and flipping one the very next day for over 500 bucks profit

If you have skill-set that is able to make profits e.g. Electrical engineering background. You can construct a circuit that target a group of enthusiast. e.g. Handmand drone. And then provide the service of making a drone and sell it on carousell upon deposits. Think along this line and find what skill-set do you have that is able to generate extra income.

If you're good with handiwork, you can start making physical products to sell. Digital and physical art too. For myself I run errands for others to earn some loose cash to buy myself the rare canteen snack in-camp (I eat free @ cookhouses because I'm trying to save).

Lastly since you're already here on Seedly, investing of course! This will take some research and time but if my 70-year-old grandma (she can only read in Mandarin) can do it, so can you!

  1. The easier is to be delivery person for grabfood/honestbee/foodpanda, don't need license, just bicycle will do.

  2. Hobbies to side gig, go to carousell / gumtree, see what is in need but not many people offer, then go learn the skills and advertise and offer the skills. This would be faster / easier to get customer than the rest like photography / music as it all needs to be popular and be recognize.

  3. Apply CC job if you have specifc skill to teach, like IT classes etc to teach the older folks basic computer skill or how to email / whatsapp / sms / fb etc.

A unique suggestions is to learn how to do tattoo (if you like and good with arts/drawings) using jagua ink (last a month and not permanent but looks the same as real tattoo), not many who knows about this. Go find out more at henndrawn.com to find out if she teaches as I recall she does, this is still niche so can sell well but unique enough to cover events, own selling / setup and slowly gaining acceptance since it is not permanent.

You can take life guard courses. Life guards get paid pretty well for a part time job!

Or you can make investing a hobby! There will surely be some extra cash in the form of dividends!

One should learn trading so as to take advantage of any opportunities that could arise in the market.

This is true but also potentially high risk, so do proceed with caution! I do agree that learning investing is useful (longer term)!
