As the weather gets a little warmer, more people will need their lawns mowed, their dogs walked, or even house-sitters to take care of pets during summer vacation.

If you’ve got an entrepreneurial mindset, you could start a lawn care business (or even find a part-time job with one that’s already established in your area). Not only will this allow you to get some sun and exercise, if you do a great job, you can start to build lasting professional relationships.

Lessons & Tutorials

Lastly, if you’re a talented musician, carpenter, or just about anything really, you can offer reasonably-priced lessons and tutorials in your area (or video/Skype lessons online). After all, why shouldn’t you get paid for the knowledge and skills you already have?

Whether you become a music teacher, a dog-walker, or the owner of your very own lawn care business, it’ll be nice to have a little less financial stress in your life and a little extra money in your pocket (or ideally, your savings account).
