Suggestions on how to make extra money?

Things I've done in past:
Driven Uber
Manufacturered spend
Bank Bonuses
Test drive car bonuses

Currently
Mining Crypto Currency (38 cards)
Working part time job
Rent out rooms in my house
I'm licensed to sell life & health insurance but haven't pursued it yet.

Other ideas sounded decent but wasn't what I wanted to do:
Take photos & Sell stock photos
Find CL gigs Working displays
Donate plasma(maybe not so decent)

I'm looking for some ways to make some side money. Any ideas?

You sound like a busy person and have a lot already figured out, keep going down the paths you already are and you'll keep finding that extra cash. Its funny, there is money to be made everywhere for the non-lazy.

you should put rough #'s beside those in the OP to get an idea of how fruitful they are. For example, bank bonuses should be pretty easy but you have to apply for accounts, usually move $$ around and jump through other hoops (direct deposit, ATM transactions, etc) to get the bonuses - and even then there isn't an unlimited number of banks to milk. Test drive car bonuses - how much could you realistically glean from that per year? couple hundred $$?

Crypto - what is your net + on this after taking into account capital (hardware) and variable (Electricity) costs?

I've delivered pizzas in the past. It wasn't too terrible a gig. Although with Uber & pizza hut more risk of being robbed/punched. One guy in my Uber had been shot two nights before. Pizza deliveries people get robbed. & if you don't have super cheap vehicle ooerating cost/depreciation I would have broke even/lost money.

Negative. I'm not sure it would be that profitable? Thinking some bigger players would be growing since it's legal

Hey Dr. J. Long been while since I've been on finance forums.

$10/hour to $25/hour Driven Uber
$30/hour Manufacturered spent
$300/month Bank Bonuses (pretty much done most bonuses)
$50 to $100/year Test drive car bonuses

Currently
Fluctuates alot depending on crypto prices. Mining Crypto Currency (38 cards)
Pretty easy gig not great pay. Working part time job
Pays my mortgage & utilities so pretty much live rent free & make a little. Rent out rooms in my house
Will have some start up costs & too excited about paperwork /stress/liability. I'm licensed to sell life & health insurance but haven't pursued it yet.

Thanks.

Although getting started doing some of the things was real challenge. I've failed at quite alot also (like Realtor /construction company). It's kind of like fishing. You could work super hard but if you're fishing where there aren't any fiish the harder you work doesn't necessarily =success. Lazy people sometimes don't have faith/know where to focus.

You have to invest. You can't simply make extra money by trading your labor for money. Eventually you run out of time to do that.

Invest in a system that makes you money.

Let's put it this way,
there are 2 types of people in the world
People that can think systems and people that can only work and run on a hamster wheel

People that can think systems usually are rich

Let's say there is a systems type of person and an average everyday sheep type of person (90% of the population).

Both of them were given a rod to fish

The "Everyday" sheep type of person would fish, bring his fish home and eat with his family and the next day would fish and eat again until the day he dies. This is 90% of the population

The systems type of person would fish the first day, sell his fish and starve the first day, use his proceeds from the sold fish to pay some other guy to fish for him and take half the fish the other guy fished and starve another day to hire another guy to fish .... and keep continuing until he can't function without eating ... he would then eat and then keep expanding and hiring people to fish for him .... That is a system

See the difference? From your post above about how you are making small change money from uber etc ... you are thinking like a sheep, don't take any offence from it, but think bigger

Perhaps search for phrase like "passive income" on youtube? Do some research by yourself may solve that entitlement problem of yours.
