- Content Creator
A content creator is simply someone that writes content for websites, bloggers, and brands.
Are you good at writing? or you think you have the ability? This is worth trying out. To the best of my knowledge as a blogger, most content creators charge about 4 - 8 cents per word. You can do the maths when you write about 1000 words or more for a client.

Currency trading or Forex trading has become more popular on the internet. This is a skill that comes with a big risk but can help you reap great rewards.
Investopedia offers free stock basics course, so you might want to check it out if you want to learn this skill.
