This site is great for freelance labor! Task Rabbit matches ou with local jobs such as cleaning, moving, furniture assembly, or a personal assistant.
Task Rabbit notifies you of potential jobs nearby and you select the one that you want to complete. You can determine what you will charge for your hourly rate.
I recommend this site mainly for construction workers or those who are good with handyman jobs as that is what the majority of tasks are usually geared towards but there are also other tasks such as shopping, sewing, pet sitting, and even office administration that one might be interested in.
Are you an ideas person who has a hard time taking action? Then help invent products on Quirky! Quirky is a crowdfunding invention website where anyone can submit ideas for new products. Accepted ideas are further developed by the crowd and eventually sold. The person with the original idea, along with anyone else who contributes along the way, receives a royalty for every item sold.

Rent A Friend
Yes, you can actually get paid to be someone’s friend at an hourly rate.
Rentafriend.com is often used for people who are new in town and may need someone to show them around or perhaps even teach them a new skill or hobby. There are a variety of different activities that they may want to use it for such as a workout partner, a tutor, or perhaps someone to bring at a family function. You can set your own rate such as 25-50$ per hour.
I definitely would not recommend this to everyone, it really depends on your personality but it’s not a bad money making idea.
