Are you great with kids or the elderly? Babysitting gigs can really rake in the dough and, lucky for you, it’s a job that will always exist!

Pay varies on area, whether or not a nanny lives-in, the number of children and a variety of other factor but, if you enjoy spending time with children, it’s a great way to pass the time.

Check out web sites like, SitterCity, or, even, Craigslist for childcare opportunities in your area. There are also great opportunities in caring for the elderly, but most require a degree or certification.

If you’re looking for side-jobs but have such qualifications, check out TheCaringSpace or’s elderly care section.
