    Cut grass.

    3 months x 2 mows per month x $20 per cut.

    25 clients gives you $1,000 a month.

    Mowing grass is a good option if you can get on as a helper
    with someone who's already doing it. Starting from zero might
    take some time to pick up customers.

    Not sure what Uber & Lyft pays but check them out too. Some
    cities also have Favor reps who run errands for people like
    buying their groceries or picking up some takeout.

    I use to mystery shop and I selected the shops that paid
    the best. My favorite was an apartment shop that paid
    $25 per apartment complex I went to.

    You just go to the apartment they tell you to go to, and inquire
    about an apartment as if you are a new renter, and then write
    about your experience and turn it in to the company. Then they
    cut you a check.

    The Panda Express I ate at tonight had a "Now Hiring" sign with a rate of $14/hr. So, $14/hr * 40hr/week * 4 weeks = $2,240/mo. Even if you work half that, you still make more than a 1k a month.

    3 Ways to Make Money this Summer -

    (Places to find offers- Click Bank, Local Garage Sales, Jvzoo, Digi Results, Thrift Stores, Antique Shops

    1. Take action and don't stop until you get results. In other words this means you're not going to make money just sitting there, so by you asking this question is a great first step in the right direction buddy! I would go ahead and identify what it is I intend to offer in exchange for the money I intend on recieving //

    2. Door to door, I dont care what you are offering, if you want to make use of your time while developing other skills, best to get your pitch in front of many people as possible. This exact same concept of (knocking until you get the opportunity) can be applied everywhere else too!

    3. Facebook Messenger- did you know that you can send and recieve payments through facebook messenger now? Almost everyone in the WORLD is on facebook messenger and if you just so happen to have the right offer. You can find the right person with the right problem that matches your right solution.

    You can sign up to the affiliate programs and promote their products. Some of them have the recurring commission so you will receive passive money during some time.

    Offer to pet sit for people going on vacation. You can earn $15 to $25 per visit and owners usually want two visits a day. Advertise in local Facebook groups and it won't cost you anything.

    Find items on Craigslist for free or cheap, then fix or paint and resale.

    Offer to help people move -- load boxes or carry furniture. Many people don't want to hire professional movers but they still need help.

    If you're good in a particular subject - Spanish, Algebra, etc. offer to tutor high school students.

    If you know how to play an instrument, such as the guitar, -- teach lessons or even better teach a class for beginning students. You can do this through video lessons, too.

    Be a camp counselor or lifeguard.

    Apply at a temp agency.

    What do you love doing? What do you have a passion for? If you want to make money online, monetize that area. Build a biz on it.

    Offline; mow lawns, other landscaping, warehouse job, anything.

    Re-reading your post. Forget IM. It ain't a salary maker. It's a long term deal. Yeah, mow lawns LOL....

    Yes if you aren't staying in IM for the long run, a job isn't a bad idea. I coached a college student last summer and he still didn't stay long enough to generate one lead.

    He was in 'absorption' mode for his first two months (like we all are when we are new).

    Then it was time for back to school.

    He may come back to me this summer since we did build a relationship. But who knows.

    sell stuff of aliexpress, do that on ebay.

    wash a few cars,

    mow lawns,

    hustle your neighbours and ask if they need stuff done.

    When I was young I got $500 pretty fast doing this.

    Keep hustling man, :-) good luck.

    The other option of making more money is investment, but it depends upon how to invest and where to invest.

    You can do something creative online, either social media marketing, viral videos etc. This can give you better ROI. You can also read blogs on investment strategies and tips that can help you in making investments decisions

    Find a big problem in your area and solve it, or develop an in-demand skill and sell yourself.

    Think outside of the box.....

    Other than that I would also say is do some research on local business marketing. If you get the right offer in front of a local business you can make some serious money. However, since you're dealing with businesses, you have to make sure you know what you're doing and you present yourself as a professional. Local businesses will pay you to do their marketing and/or increase their online presence, but it's up to you go and make it happen.

    Maybe Gardening or cutting peoples grass. Or maybe a sales stand to sell a hot selling consumption product. I would be more inclined to start up a stall and sell a product the public are going to buy from me all day long.
