So has emanymton decided between kinky cam girl or sex toy tester yet? Either sounds less tedious than filling in surveys, tbf.
I'm thinking a combination. A cam of me testing out new sex toys.
Hopefully not combined with dog walking.
I'm sure it's possible with some planning. Sex toy in place, drone with a camera and satellite uplink leaving the hands free to hold dog leads. The poor dogs might get confused though.
Now we're talking. I'll be a millionaire by Christmas.
emanymton is there anything you could make - and then sell?
bear in mind that any income from part time work is liable to income tax. from memory, you are supposed to tell HMRC you are also self employed (as well), and you will get in to the realms of self assessment and all that sort of thing. you can have a PAYE job and be self employed on part time basis.
This is starting point for tax etc.
income tax should be on net income not gross turnover, so keeping records of expenses (purchasing of stock / equipment / advertising or whatever) is necessary - think you can deduct something for household bills if you work from home, although on the other hand, your mortgage / lease / tenancy agreement / house insurance may also have something to say about this. as might your motor insurers if you use car for business. (and for that matter, think you are supposed to declare to car insurers if you take a second job, in case said job is something they consider 'high risk')
And consider whether whatever you decide to do has a risk of something happening that means you would need to take out public / product liability insurance.
Entirely up to you what you do, but it seems that the tax-person is more eager to chase people making a few quid on the side (e.g. selling a lot on flea-bay) than multinational plcs.
you may also want to check your employment contract to see whether you need permission from your employer to do any other form of work, or whether you need to tell them, or whether you just shouldn't let the part time thing interfere with (or cause a conflict of interests with) your regular job.
high class puddings to the gentry?
Not sure if this is any use emanymton
PeoplePerHour.com - Hire Freelancers Online & Find Freelance Work
Probably not. It would probably need me to have some kind of marketable skills.
I was going to suggest those - a couple of mates do it. Also use sites like TopCashback for any shopping - it's not much but between that and the surveys my mate pays for Christmas that way.
Why don't you list all of your skills here & the urban hive mind will find you the perfect extracurricular job.
Is eating ice-cream a skill?
Between 1 website and 1 app, I have made £8.92 in a week, without really noticing the lost time. It's drying up a bit now as I seem to be running out of survives to do.
Youtube is full of videos of people eating stuff - apparently some people make big bucks this way. So you can literally be paid to eat ice cream. Give it a go & let us know how it turns out.
Send my £20 to stock op on ice-cream and I'll give it a go.
Odd thing about the survives. A lot of them are obviously looking for people who earn a lot of money. Are there really many people earning £100k+ doing online survives for an extra 42p?
How's the surveys going?
The problem is that there just isn't enough I am eligible for. I'm lucky to manage 2 a day. I have had my first £10 pay out as an Amazon voucher. But I made half of that doing 1 'mission'
I could probably make more if I went to more sites, but since you have to build up X amount before you get a pay out I'm not sure how effective it would be really.
Would anyone know how to recover an old youtude account.I uaed their feedback page but 48 hours later and nothing...
Have you got any capital to 'invest' even if only a small amount?
There's a stack of things for sale on amazon/ebay that are really only a case of combing a stock of item x with items y and z. No craft skills of note required. Examples I've come across recently include hammocks etc for small animal cages. Buy some fleece material. Cut it. Finish the edges to make them look neat (sewing machine maybe, perhaps just glue on strips?) punch some eyelets in and attach some pretty carabiners . Job done, stick 'em on eBay, profit margin must be huge.
I'm doing exactly that for my new rat cage, and might make some more to see if there's any interest. If not, then the capital outlay's not exactly massive, even for an unemployed benefits-scrounging doley scumbag like me.
There must be hundreds of similar examples.
I've recently started mixing my owner ecigarette liquids for example, which I'd always avoided because it sounded really scary. It's really not, and the price difference is huge. There might be roolz and stuff with that one though, dunno.
