Check out Task Rabbit
Geoffrey A. Fowler and Brenda Cronin, WSJ, May 29, 2013, write about how people are picking up short-term gigs.
A site called http://taskrabbit.com has quickie money-makers for freelancers.
It is online temp work, basically.
At present, 10% of the workforce are freelancers.
The article also talks about Elance--but to me, Elance is a race to the bottom--writers, programmers and designers race to underbid each other and cheat themselves.
Seventy-five percent of Task Rabbit's workers have BAs. The company takes a 26% commission.
This may or may not be for you. Check into it.
