money. By picking up freelance gigs, seniors have found a new way to keep themselves busy
while earning some extra money. Using their cars, leveraging a hobby or even teaching from
experience, seniors have discovered a new way to stay active.
Here are some of the ways most commonly considered by older adults
Rent extra space. Got extra rooms in the house, but not ready to downsize? Some people
have started to earn cash by renting out their extra space online on websites like Airbnb. It’s
currently working in more than 190 countries.
Share expertise and life experiences. Some senior citizens are making money by
writing blogs. Sharing knowledge on a subject they love is a great way to spend time and earn
some money.
Driving. Love to drive, but no place to go? Apps like Uber has made it very easy for anyone
with a car to become a driver. After a complete background check and meeting the
requirements of the criteria of selection, it is not very hard to be a driver. Uber allows seniors
to drive as well after they have passed the test.
Turn treasures into cash. Selling products on the internet is easy. Whether it’s a custommade product or original art, these skills are always valued by people and can help the seniors
earn some extra money and downsize at the same time.
Teaching. Freelance teaching is another way to earn money among the seniors. With all
their life experience and skills, they can choose to teach environmental stewardship, money
management, yoga, art, computers – the list is endless. Take any favorite subject or hobby
and teach it to others.
It goes without saying that the seniors have taken the internet by storm and found a new
way to remain active and earn some extra cash with the help of gig economy.
