Taxi services are often born out of the desire to fulfill a need while making an income. You can do the same with your weekends. Either join one of the taxi services that are already established in your local area, or run a weekend service of your own.

5. Start a Delivery service-

If the answer is yes, petition them to use you as the delivery service in your free time. Your sidegig could scale into a major operation in no time. At that point, you can create a team of delivery guys to service more local businesses.

If you don't know how to start a business of your own, here's a grand idea.Start a low cost delivery service in your local area and scale up over time to reap significant rewards.

6. Sell Clothing-

Clear out your closet and declutter your life. Sell pieces with little wear and generate an income for yourself. The income generated can be used to invest in an online store; hence creating a full-time income for you in the near future.
