If you have a parking space you don't use, you can list it for free on JustPark.com and rent it out. Instead of that empty driveway, parking lot, or garage going to waste, make some money from it! You choose the days you want to rent it and get paid direct to your PayPal or bank account.

JustPark describes itself as "Europes leading provider of pre-bookable parking"  although their popular locations only list places in the UK at the time of writing, but this may change in the future.Anyone who has every tried to find afforable parking in cities knows just how difficult that can be, so anything that makes it easier, and cheaper, to park will be popular with drivers.

It is free to list your parking space on JustPark.com and they don't even charge you commission - they add a fee on to the rental amount and charge the clients booking the space instead. You don't need to be home when the driver arrives, as long as they can access the parking space without you, and if they overstay they will be charged for the extra time. If the driver does not turn up and has not given you notice of the cancellation, they still have to pay.

You choose when you want to rent it out and you can choose to  make it unavailable for rental when you are going to use it yourself or if you want to let friends and family use it. 

Eligibility

Anywhere with a parking space including:

  • Private homes
  • Schools
  • Churches
  • Hotels
  • Pubs

Earnings

The amount you can make from renting out your parking space will obviously depend on the location, but you can get a good idea of what to charge by looking at what other people are charging in your area. In Westminster for example, the average price is £8.14 per day with a maximum of £340 per day, whereas in Islington the maximum is £25 per day.

Payments

You can get paid direct to your bank or to PayPal and you can choose automatic withdrawals to your banks on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis. Withdrawals over £25 are free, anything less than that will cost you 50p.

When my son first looked at the website he was not impressed (16-year old used to the latest Xbox graphics), however, when he saw how popular some of their games were, he took more of an interest in its money-making potential! So before you dismiss it for being too simple, or thinking the graphics are not good enough, give it a chance and look at what other people have done with it.

  2. Offer it for free with in-game purchase options for upgrades.

1. Sell your breast milk

Human breast milk is apparently popular with bodybuilders and no doubt a few fetishists, but whatever the reason there is a trade in breast milk where mothers can sell any excess milk they have via:

2. Sell your hair

3. Pretend to be someones friend

On RentaFriend.com you can offer your services and earn up to $50 per hour. You could help someone who doesn't want to go on their own to a wedding, or wants a partner to go to dance classes with. Maybe they want to pretend you are their girlfriend/boyfriend while their parents are in town.  Sounds like an escort service?  Well the website claims they are not a dating website or an escort agency, they just help people who are looking for a quick way to find some company for a specific event.

4. Get Paid to Cuddle

While this sounds like a polite of offering intimacy with strangers, people actual pay to come over and just cuddle.  As crazy as it sounds, in this fast paced world, many people are separated from family, feel lonely, or find it relaxing to cuddle with others.  For up to $80/£50 it is something many people will consider. 

5. Do Yoga with Dogs

Got a spare room or large garage? Then you can offer Doga a.k.a. Yoga for dogs. Learn how to do it and then offer sessions to clients one-on-one or in groups.

Mothers are often undervalued and penalised for taking time out to look after their children. Employers see someone lacking in experience and use it as an excuse to offer mothers lower wages. Which is a shame, because mothers have so much to offer and Nina Keneally from New York is showing how much people are willing to pay for a little home comfort and shoulder to cry on.

Nina runs NeedAMomNYC.com and offers her clients a substitute mom service. She promises to leave out the family drama, and offer instead a good homecooked meal, friendly advice, help with the housework, and anything else your mom can't do for you.

Who Needs to Rent-A-Mom?

Your first reaction might be that surely no-one would pay for a substitute mother when you have friends and family you can turn to?  The truth is however, that sometimes we want the warmth of a mother figure who is not swayed by knowing the people involved in our lives.  Who would not want the help of a mother figure without the criticism that often comes from family members who tell you to 'pull yourself together'.  Most of Ninas clients seem to want simple things:

  • Someone to listen to their problems.
  • A homecooked meal.
  • Friendly advice.
  • Someone to go with them to the doctor.
  • Help with resumes for job interviews.
  • Someone to go to the movies with.

As she herself describes the service, "It's the mother without the baggage." 

Her rates vary but clients have reported paying $40 per hour, and in an age where so many people are displaced, living far from their loved ones, I think it is an idea that could take off.  I know plenty of people who need someone to talk to but are reluctant to go to a therapist because they don't want to go down the analysis rabbit hole.  There are also new young mothers living in the whirlwind of having a new baby who could use the help of someone experienced.

She has a varied background but is not qualified as a counselor or therapist, which means that if she can do it, so can you!

Tracking time is something you should always do as a freelancer, not only because you may need to bill clients for the time you work, but also to keep track of how much time you waste!

Our perception of time is often very different from reality and we know that from when we were kids. It always happens that when you love what you are doing time flies. When you do not like what you are doing time seems to drag on forever. 

So when you have that project to finish, or that nightmare of a task to do, or something that you find mindnumbingly boring, it is easy to go onto Facebook or another similar timewaster and get carried away with the information on there. Telling yourself you are just going to give yourself a five minute break can easily turn into an hour or more.

"Stop kidding yourself you are just going to have a 5 minute break"

I was horrified when I started timing myself and discovered how little time I was spending on my personal projects that mattered, and how much time I was spending on Facebook. Because of course it is not just a case of scrolling through Facebook. You click through to a link from Facebook and have to read that article or watch that video. Then you see something else on that page you want to read or watch and the same thing happens again. It´s almost hynoptic.

The obsession with timetracking is not a good thing either of course. I must have used every single time tracking software out there. Some were amazing and completely over the top project management software that I did not need, but had a great time wasting hours finding them and trying them. Then I went to the other extreme and got the simplest ones I could find. Which of course did not satisfy me either because they did not have enough bells and whistles on them.

I had settled on Toggl which is pretty good and I just discovered that you can now have it in lots of applications like Task Managers and Google Docs. But even that was not enough to stop me falling in love with Everhour. It is the ideal solution for project management and personal productivity monitoring.

Like GTD shortcuts you use @XXXX for projects and then #XXXX for tags:

You can then create reports filtered by tag, project, date or task and see how much time you have spent on it. Not so new you say? What I love is that I just click the extension button in my browser or use Ctrl + Shift + E to bring up the Everhour window and in a few seconds can start recording whatever I want. No need to open a new tab, a new window, or a different software, it´s right there in the window I´m working in.

I´m not saying it will be the best solution for everyone, but if you are like me and your key goal is to maximise your productivity rather than having to bill for every minute of your day I highly recommend you give Everhour a try if you use Chrome. I don´t need to track every single second I spend online, but I do need to get an overview of where my time goes when I am on the computer.

As a result of using Everhour just for a short time I was able to confirm that I was spending a lot of time on my business, but I was not spending nearly enough time on my personal projects like the Alternative Income Report.

If you keep wondering why there are never enough hours in the day and why you never seem to move forward with your business ideas or your projects, Everhour could help you see why. It is the same revelation as when I realised how many hours I was wasting watching television!

For those of you who are highly focused and organized you may not understand what all the fuss is about. But for those of you who are easily distracted and are juggling a number of different personal and business projects, you will definitely need a tool like Everhour.
