Everybody dreams of starting their own business and being financially independent. This is a fantastic goal that the Encompass Credit Union team is happy to help with, but there’s no better way to make your dream a reality than starting early.
If you’re a young adult looking to be your own boss, here are just a few ways you can make some extra cash outside of school!
Restore and Resell
People are always selling their unwanted goods on sites like Facebook Marketplace and Kijiji, but one person’s trash can definitely be another person’s treasure! Buying discarded goods and refurbishing them for the right buyer can net you plenty of cash and help you develop an eye for retail possibility.
Sell Your Social Media Skills
Post-millennials are the most tech-savvy generation today, and these skills and insights can be incredibly useful for businesses trying to build a digital presence. Know how to build a website or write engaging social posts? Pitch your services to local businesses and help them succeed online!
Tutor Your Favourite Topics
Have a subject in your school you’re passionate about but others may struggle with? Make some extra money this semester by tutoring your classmates to help them succeed! It has next to no costs, it’s a topic you love, and you may just make some new friends.
Caddy at the Golf Course
Looking to make some extra money but also want to get in shape? Check out your local golf courses and country clubs and see if anybody is looking for a caddy! Caddying is a great way to earn extra money and build important networking connections for your future career.
Deliver Delicious Meals
Companies like Skip the Dishes and Uber Eats are starting to dominate the food delivery industry, but there are still many cities and towns across Canada that remain a wild frontier when it comes to food delivery. If you know any local restaurants who are looking to expand their food orders, take your vehicle over and offer to do deliveries.
Starting a side hustle while in school is a great way to earn extra cash, but it can also teach you important entrepreneurial skills and resourcefulness. If you want to make sure your hard-earned gains can work for you, give Encompass Credit Union a call today at 780-842-3391 or visit us online and see how our savings accounts, credit cards, and exceptional staff can help your side hustle grow into a thriving business.
