Pet waste removal services

If you can get past the smell and physical task of cleaning up pet waste, this hack costs virtually nothing to start up. After that, all you need are some gloves, a waste scooper, trash bags, a trash bin, and a vehicle to tow away the waste. 

As money starts to flow in, you can offer add-on services like deodorizer and pet walking for an extra fee. Most pet waste removal services charge an initial clean-up fee of around $50-$75, followed by $15-$30 per clean-up, depending on the size of the yard and the number of dogs. 

Looking to gain more exposure? You can invest as little as $50 for 500 custom business postcards on Vistaprint. Simply drive around your communities, place your custom marketing pieces on fences or doormats and wait for the phone to start ringing!

In-home daycare

Most parents worry about childcare when it’s time to go back to work. Why not create a business that helps parents in need by providing a safe, nurturing, and creative environment for their little ones. Keep in mind, each state has different licensing requirements and guidelines when it comes to an in-home daycare, look into your local laws for more details. 

For most parents, childcare is essential and if you stand out from the rest, you can easily charge at least $35 a day per child. If you offer additional services like meals, after-school programs, extended hours, or specialty classes like Spanish or STEM, expect your fees to increase and children to thrive!

Electric scooter charger

In most major cities, you can see people whipping around on electric scooters. The majority of these scooters are made by popular companies like Bird and Lime. After someone’s done using a scooter, they can leave it wherever their journey ends or if the battery dies. These companies eliminated their need to drive around picking them up to charge them by paying anyone to scoop them up and charge them. 

Download the Bird or Lime app, apply to become a Bird Charger or Lime Juicer, and get anywhere from $3-$20 per scooter depending on location and battery charge. The app locates scooters in need of a charge and drop-off location once charged. Charging takes anywhere from 4-5 hours, depending on battery level, and can plug into a regular outlet.

Additionally, you can list your surfboards, paddleboards, skis, and snowboards for as much as $50 a day. Although it is free to list your rentals, Splinlister keeps 17.5% of any profits made.
