By Working more
To work more is one of the simplest thing which comes to mind when you think of earning more. You can simply put in extra hours at your own work place or work part time at some other place, both way you stand to earn a decent amount of extra money.

By Selling You stuff
Selling your product is an excellent way to earn more. Today with the advent of online shopping portals you can sell your stuff easily and at a good margin. Your time involvement and investment is also limited. If you are good at art and craft or painting then you can sell your stuff directly to the buyers at fraction of the cost. Same way if you can write some books, it is so easy these days to get published in electronic form and earn some extra cash.
Then there are some websites that deal in your used stuff also. You can generate some handsome amount if you have your old books, jewellery, gadgets or other stuff that you have not used in months and don’t intend to do in near future also.
By Renting Out
From an extra space in your house to an extra vacant seat in your car, you can always rent these. If you are travelling by your car alone then log on to the apps available online which will help you find a journey partner. This will help you to generate some extra cash and the resultant car pooling can be good for fighting pollution. If you are living in a big house then rent out the unused portions. You can also get roommates to share your room to earn extra money.
If you have a car that is used only occasionally then you can hire a driver and enroll with the cab service provider. This way your car will be used for generating cash and it will be converted from a liability to an earning asset.
Equipment rental is another frontier to earn serious money. From music players to projectors to small scientific machines and instruments, everything is in demand and thus can easily be rented by creating advertisements through local newspaper or websites.
Do you have a great collection of movies or may be even formal clothes, the rental market is open for you.
By Saving More
Now there is an old saying that “money saved is money earned” and how true. On one hand when you save your money by avoiding some purchase or expense, you decrease the requirement for earning that money. At time you can save a substantial amount if you decide to shop for lesser known brands compared to the expensive top brands. Keep in mind if you research well and devote some time you will find many options which are comparable on quality but are much more economical.
More importantly on the other side the amount that you save by not spending or spending more judiciously, can be utilized as investment and will in turn earn you more money.
Start the habit of savings early and put the funds in some investment instrument after due diligence. Use the power of compounding in your favour and see your money grow over a period of time. Einstein once said that compounding is the eighth wonder of the world. If you continue with the process you can grow your investments into a big pool of fund that can earn you more money than even your full time working. Start your stream of passive income and be financially free.
And lastly you can save on the amount of interest that you pay on your loans if you close them by paying off with savings or shifting to some other financial institution with lower interest rates.
Even if you are having limited resources keep in mind that the first step to increasing anything is to increase awareness. It is said that it is not resources but resourcefulness that is more important. Look around you for hidden opportunities, be curious all the time because you don’t know when you will stumble upon a bright prospect. Create your own opportunities by being conscious and with strict discipline. If you develop a strong desire you will be able to find some avenues to earn more, and as it happens sometimes, significantly MORE.
