You can also write articles for magazines and newspapers if you feel your articles will be catchy and popular.

If you have the ability to teach it gives you an excellent opportunity to earn nice money. You can inform your neighbors and friends that you are willing to take tuitions in the evening .Believe me, in India it is a good side income as many parents send their children to such tuition as it will make them study their lessons daily. Parents who both work and do not have the time to guide their children in their lessons will be keener to send their children to you.

If you know how to play some musical instruments, you can have musical classes in your home.

Cookery classes are another opportunity and if you know cuisines from various countries, you can earn a handful of money by taking classes.

If you have lots of contacts, you can enter the field of selling used cars and the commission is attractive and lucrative. All you need is a good salesmanship talk and a persuasive attitude. There is no physical work and it all depends on how you are able to contact the right person and if you are able to sell at least one car, it is neat money and if you are able to sell more cars, it is big money.

If you have space in your house, it is your space for earning money. You can grow vegetables in an organic way and sell it for a good price. As people are becoming very health conscious, they will be more than willing to pay for chemical free vegetables.

I have a cousin who has a talent for Tanjore painting, a unique art of South India. She sells the paintings she draws for a good price and teaches how to do it and trust me; she earns a lot of money as she is very talented in it. You too might have such talent and it will bring in some handy money if you teach others.
