Some people feel that they are just not made for working a 9-to-5 job. They feel tied down, unhappy, and like there is no hope for the future. Thankfully, there are lots of other ways to make money. These creative ideas give a person more flexibility, allow them to be their own boss, and even allow them to travel.
If you have a few dollars that you can invest in a business, you may be able to get a business going and then hire someone else to run it for you. For example, look at the many food kiosks that you see in public areas. You could invest your money into these kiosks. Once you find reliable people to help you and the kiosks are up and running, you will have a lot more flexibility. You may only need to visit the kiosks every now and then and be there in case of an emergency.
There are so many online work opportunities that have allowed individuals to have a lot more free time and even to travel while they work. Look at individuals who write, design websites, translate, interpret, and do so many other services that require the use of a computer and a connection to the Internet. Individuals who do this type of work no longer need to go to a physical office every single day to do their work. They simply need to travel with their computer and occasionally connect to the Internet. They can do this work from home or while visiting far-flung places around the world.
Have you ever thought about turning your hobby into a business? If you love to fix things, sew, crochet, paint, and do other things like this, you can start making money from it.

Many have found that they can get a business based on a hobby going slowly. Once it takes off, they can eventually quit their 9-to-5 job.
