Default How do you make an extra 500-1000 a month? Niche Markets, Flipping, Ect

Well how do you make extra cash ? I have made a good 2nd living just by doing something that comes natural to me, making a nickle to a dime without much work. Its allowed me not to work a bull **** job since 17, and work for myself in my 'real' endeavors.

So what do you do?

-Scan craigslist for cheap cars you know inside and out. I just picked up a 97 civic for 1500, resold at 4k.

-Building sub boxes for niche cars where there is a good demand.

Id give out all my secrets, but than I would probably be poor.

Prior to having my daughter (mainly in '06 & '07) I went to AC to play poker usually once a week, and most of the time came back w/ a few hundred more then I went there w/. I also won 3 tournaments between 06 and 07 for about 5k total. On average that was an extra 500-600/month. I could really use that again... lol

Sometimes I valet for some extra money. I use to manage a valet company so whenever I need work I could always work a party (sometimes it could be $25 in tips, other times it could be a hundred or two depending on the event). I havent done that in about a year, but I plan on picking up a few days this summer...

Im also open to suggestions lol

What I have found, find something you know.

Example : I know people who flip video cards off of CL, ebay and make a few hundred, problem is, they know their ****, and you dont. You need to know the bottom, middle and top dollar you can get for something. Whatever it is, know your product inside and out. The better you know something the faster you can scan for it and know right away if its something you can turn without any more research.

I would LOVE you get into flipping cars, but I have friends that do it and say that it's more of a pain than it's worth.

Currently I just have my full time job and that's it. My dad just re-started his postcard business so hopefully i'll get to help him with that stuff soon

I flip stuff on eBay a few times a month ...

Like a TRD intake my buddy bought before his FJ was totalled, he was going to trash it, brand effin new. I convinced him to give it to me, putting it on eBay tonight.

$0 investment for average $300 sale.

My other buddy owns a comic book shop and he sells me old stuff that no one wants local and I throw it on eBay.

Dad was a retail architect for the last 25 years. About 10 years ago he started drawing images for postcards, and would sell them at fairs and stuff. Never really took off because he was so busy with his full time job. Well, since retail is sucking in the recession he decided to go back to drawing images for cards & other stuff.

My gf sublets an apartment, she's getting an extra $700/mo (its an apt in NYC)

ITs been a huge hassle though... in the past year she's had about 8 people move in and out of a 3 bedroom apartment.

But her own rent is paid.

I have a friend who makes MySpace pages for rappers / singers. He does pretty well - it's his only job.

I need to find something like this. I'm broke.

I coud make a killing over here... Koreans will pay a ton for some alcohols, and cigarettes here. To bad it's illegal, haha. Porn too oddly enough, I guess because Korean **** is soft as hell, but I don't get it though when they can just go online?.. lol

I've flipped a few cars/trucks in the past, also worked on cars etc for a little extra cash. A buddy makes good dough on ebay, he's been going to repo auctions getting alot of **** dirt cheap and selling it for some good money. My job doesn't leave me with alot of extra time anymore. :/

I usually make some extra money playing poker, but a bad run of luck in cash games over the last 6 months has negated any and all profits I made in 2008. I'm up in 2009, but only about a hunder after (what do you know!?) losing a couple hundred in a cash game a couple weeks back.

I'm thinking about trying to play more poker using more discipline with my bankroll and see where that can get me. Making an extra 1000 bucks a month playing online poker is very doable and shouldn't be that difficult with some patience and discipline (for me I mean).
