#5 Virtual Assistant

Your tasks would cover a varied range of tasks; doing the final layout of a PPT presentation, handling email, scheduling business meetings, arranging doctor’s appointments, etc. Ideally you have good organisational skills, good time management in order to juggle many tasks at the same time. 

#6 Interview Transcriber

Journalists and writers are frequently conducting interviews. The interviews are normally recorded, but they need to be transcribed afterwards. Some of them could be reasonably long; therefore it’s quite common to outsource the transcription. Your task would be to listen to the audio files and write down what you hear. To do this job you need to be good and fast at typing, have a good knowledge of grammatical rules and have a good pair of headphones.

If you are in need of making money easy it’s maybe not the fastest way, but it’s definitely a good one. A great approach is to create a blog in order to promote a service that you offer, could be transcribing, teaching or web designing. It’s a gain-gain!
