Feeling a little down on your luck recently? Well, why not make your own luck?

In this country, we love a good game show. Nowadays, there are so many different types, from competitive quiz shows to dating. The earnings you can make from these kinds of tv shows can be astronomical, with some going up to a million (Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, anyone?!). Plus, if you get onto a highly popular show, such as Love Island, your earnings go way beyond the prize fund at the end of it. Many stars from the Love Island cast then go on to make their fortune with their own businesses, brand deals, and much more. Check out this article on Wealthify to find out more about the financial success of Love Island stars years after the show. The question is: love or money?!
Selling Unloved Items
Look around your home. You’ve probably got a whole load of stuff you never make use of. That motorbike you’ve had gathering dust in the garage for years? The TV in the spare room that’s never been turned on? All of these items dotted around your home could add up to a decent amount of money. As well, the more you get rid of, the less clutter you have in your home. It’s a win-win! So, decide what you want to sell, get it uploaded to an online marketplace such as eBay or Facebook, then wait for the enquiries to roll in.
With freelancing, you have so many different options when it comes to making money. If you become really successful at what you do, it could even become your full-time vocation, but it’s best to test the waters and start out small. Think about what kind of skills you have that you could put into freelancing. Can you write content? Take great pictures? Graphic design? Play an instrument? If there is a demand for ad-hoc work with the service you can provide, then you can do it on a freelance basis. To get started building a client base, you can check out sites that post freelancer job ads, scour social media, or reach out to businesses directly to build up contacts.
The sooner you get stuck in, the better! These are just a few of the ideas you can put into practice to gain a bit of extra money. There are plenty more options out there, just think about what is available to you – even if it’s small, one-off things, such as doing paid surveys or (safe) clinical trials. What’s stopping you? Give your bank account the cash injection it’s craving!
