Set Pace Now – A Dozen Ways to Generate Extra Cash Flow This Summer

Before we dive into the extra cash flow ideas, it may also help if you also understand the mentality and importance of getting customers and repeat business.  The first step is to acquire customers.  You have to spread the word through family, friends, and people in your community.  Pass flyers around your neighborhood and build new relationships within your community.

As your business starts to grow and you receive positive feedback, your customer base will increase its loyalty and eventually you’ll be able to increase revenue.  As time goes on, you will have created additional business contacts and have increased your customer base through referrals. 

Whichever way you decide to earn, be sure to create and deliver value in your community.  That is a sure-fire way to earn more. 

A few of these ideas could involve your entire family and be a lot of fun

1. Landscaping

2. Dog walking service

3. Pet grooming

4. Garage/Yard Sale

5. Washing Cars

6. Sell products door to door

7. Babysitting

8. Water/ Juice/ Lemonade Stand

9. Auction unused items on online auction sites

10. Errand Service for Handicap/Elderly

11. Collecting Cans/Metals

12. Window Washing Service

A good idea that may help your business take off is if you let your customers know that you will take a percentage of your earnings and donate it to charity.  If you are honest and sincere about what you are doing, this could turn your part-time income producer into a full time business.  If you donate a percentage of your revenue to your favorite charity, people in your area will promote your service to others.  Some of you may be saying to yourself, “I need the extra money and I can’t afford to donate to charity”, but I’m here to tell you that the opposite is true.  The more you give, the more you will receive.  There are many ways to earn additional income for the summer but I’ve listed twelve that can bring in a few hundred dollars per month for the next several months.  Each service could potentially produce thousands of dollars if your service is good and you’ve created an outstanding reputation in your community.
