10 ways to earn good money in less time


“It’s a big bonus if you can tutor the SAT.” Let’s see … “part-time” is to “lifestyle” as “volleyball” is to “quinoa” (I never could master those old SAT analogies).

Freelance writer

That English lit degree actually has value. Demand for part-time writing assignments is especially high for those “who cover niche or technical subject matter,” according to Flexjobs. Flexjobs said pay averages $33 an hour, though CareerCast had the average at $27. SimplyHired said total pay can hit $53,000 a year.

Dog walker

Get exercise, enjoy pets, and make money. SimplyHired reported part-time dog walkers can earn $39,000 a year. That’s more than $3,000 a month. A search of Craigslist in Los Angeles uncovered dog-walking pay ranging from $15 per walk to $60 for all day.

Yoga instructor

When you’re not walking dogs, you can do downward dogs and earn money. Part-time yoga instructors can make $35,000 a year, according to SimplyHired. Ohhhhmm OMG.

Management Analyst/Consultant

This has a high median hourly wage of $38.89 per hour, the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows. The hiring outlook for management consultants is very strong, with the job outlook outpacing many other jobs. Market analysts earn less ($29.47 per hour) but are more likely to find work.
