Even though the economy is starting to look promising, inflation is always going to be around. With gas prices soaring to over $4 a gallon, men and women alike are looking for unique ways to make a little extra money. Especially since those holiday bills are starting to come in.

Let’s take a look at a few industries that were growing during the recession.

Graphic Design

Women have been teaching themselves how to do something for centuries now. The options are unlimited if you train yourself to build websites, design logos, and even design cover art.

The reason why this job will never go away? People are always starting businesses, people always need to create materials for their profession, and businesses don’t have time to create their own logos. Large corporations are going to need new pamphlets, training materials, and so much more.

Lastly, there are websites out there that allow you to create your own t-shirt and sell them for whatever profit you need. You set the price! These websites include:


This is definitely a business you can do from the comfort of your home so you have more time with your family. It can also be a very lucrative business.

Take Pictures

Another way you can make some money is to purchase a nice camera and start taking nature photos. There are tons of websites and businesses that are looking for stock photos for numerous reasons. You can also submit amazing nature photos to National Geographic. If accepted, you can make a couple hundred dollars!

You can put photos up on photo sharing websites, upload them to stock photo websites that allow people to pay you for them, as well as taking portraits for families.

The last reason why taking photos can become a lucrative business is because people are always looking for the next best piece of work. Start small; but eventually you can open up your own online business if you learn to take and edit amazingly stunning photos.

[NOTE: Storms, natural disasters, ocean, and sunrise/sunset photos are always a hot ticket item.]


Fiverr has been around for a few years but not a lot of people know about it. Listen ladies, I know there are tasks you would be willing to do for $5. It doesn’t take much effort but you can make $5 per task!

People will post what they will do for $5 but there are also people that are looking for tasks to be completed for just $5. So if you are a graphic designer, you can say you’ll create a logo for $5 or you will create a testimonial for your business for $5.

No matter what you want to do, you can do it! It doesn’t have to be time consuming since it’s only for $5 but it can definitely add up on your time off! They also have an affiliate business you can look into if you are interested in that.
