One virtually unknown source of income (even a regularly recurring one if you want it to be) is at local senior facilities (nursing homes, independent or assisted living centers, retirement communities, etc.), who often pay people to provide diversions for their residents (be it a performance of some sort or an activity like arts/crafts, yoga/exercise class, a poetry or inspirational short story reading session, skill demonstration (like you see on HGTV, only live).You can get anywhere from $25-$250 for a 1-hr. long program (pay varies by the type of program and the facility's budget). It's something you can do most anytime: in the morning or afternoon 7 days/wk. or, at some places, weekday evenings, on a regular basis or on an occasional, as-available basis. Most people in communities don't know about the 'senior entertainment circuit', but some places pay people to provide programs at their facilities anywhere from 7-33 times in an average month. I've made close to $800/mo. just doing 3-4 programs a wk (on Tues. or Thurs. & 2 on 1 Wed. night per month) at 10 'client' facilities who pay me $50-$60 to read poetry or short stories or do other presentations. It's rewarding, fun, involves minimal time investment (1 hr., max.), is flexible to most schedules, & benefits others while fueling the local economy. 'Work' doesn't get much better than that!
