I get asked all the time how people can make money with no investment. I know some of you are going through hard financial times and investing in platforms like Amazon and eBay is out of the question. However, there is a platform where some people are making six-figure incomes and it doesn’t cost them anything but time.
DogVacay.com and Rover.com allow people like yourself to offer alternative pet sitting services to kennels for your community. You sign up to be a pet sitter on both sites and after being approved you can start offering your services immediately. Both sites will take a small fee and pay you via PayPal within 24-48 hours after you complete your service.
If you’re in a metropolitan area and live in a dog-friendly home this is a great opportunity to make some really good money. This is also a good opportunity to make money if you’re in between jobs. As long as you’re a dog lover and make yourself available on a regular basis this can be very rewarding.
I made $28 this past weekend in 24 hours. I don’t do this often as I have tons of other things going on in my life. But when I know I have some free time coming up I take advantage to put some extra cash in my pockets. It might not seem like a lot but considering I didn’t invest a single penny the payout was a huge return for my time and commitment.
I suggested both these sites to a few local college students and it really helped them during their time at the university. They were able to save a good amount of money for themselves throughout the year. One was able to travel to Cancun with the money she saved from dog sitting.
The only downside is that you have to be with the dogs at all time. If you can’t commit to watching a dog for an entire day or overnight then this probably isn’t the right opportunity for you. However, if you have family members that can help out this can be a good opportunity to get into and at the same time work on other business ventures.
When offering dog sitting and dog boarding services know that you’re taking in a family member and that the dog’s safety is under your supervision. Treat the guest dog with the same courtesy you give your dog. And the great thing about this is that if you have family members they can help out if you need to tend to other matters.
