There are going to be some things that you have to keep in mind if you are going to do this. What kind of diet are your clients on? Are they allergic to anything? How many people are you cooking for? Sit down with your potential clients to iron out the kinks. You will find that it will be easy to come to an agreement once you have everything worked out. Then you can get right to cooking. It would be best to start with friends and family.
You can go back to the basics with this one. Web design makes so much decent money. After all, over 90% of first impressions will relate to your site’s web design.

You can take classes or look around on YouTube. Once you figure out what to do, you will be set to work on websites for a little extra cash.
Art and Writing
Art and writing will make you good money. They aren’t just a hobby you can use to pass the time. Many artists and writers take commissions to help make ends meet.

Some people might ask you to care for and clean your collections. Some might even need you to help sell them. Over 30% of Americans pawn things like electronics when they need cash.
