Simple Ways To Make Money On The Side At University

Simple Ways To Make Money On The Side At University

Student life is expensive. In England, the average student graduates university with £32,220 in debt, the Guardian reports. Sticking to a budget and minimising debt is crucial for the majority of students, but what happens when you simply need more money to cover your expenses and live comfortably? There are only so many hours you can work at your part-time job since you also need to go to class and study. If you’re currently facing the decision between working more hours or taking out a bigger loan, you’ll be relieved to know there’s a third option. Creating an extra income stream will benefit you financially without being too time-consuming or difficult to achieve. You’ll also enjoy cultivating an entrepreneurial spirit which will come in useful throughout life after university.

 

Start a YouTube channel

Whether you love teaching, playing music, reviewing video games, or even pranking, make videos of yourself doing what you’re best at and upload them to YouTube. Consistent, engaging, and quality content will get views which can lead to a decent income stream. Adverts will play before your videos and you’ll earn a percentage of the money generated. Sign up to Adsense to get paid per view. If you use your channel to recommend products, using affiliate links is another effective way to monetise your channel. Once you build up a strong viewership, you can also be sponsored by brands to advertise their products.

Episode: #48 The Mind Pump guys on how to build great partnerships that can change the world

Who: Today’s guests are the Mind Pump Media team (@MindPumpMedia). This interview is fun, informative and full of double entendres! The guys are the cutting edge of the fitness industry and really helping people transform themselves by cutting through the BS and fakeness of the fitness industry and actually providing helpful advice that can work for you to help you achieve your goals.

As the guys describe themselves: “MindPump is an online radio show/podcast that has been described as Howard Stern meets fitness. It is sometimes raw, sometimes shocking and is always entertaining and informative. Your hosts, Sal Di Stefano, Adam Schafer and Justin Andrews have over 40 years of combined fitness experience as personal trainers, club managers, IFBB fitness competitors and fitness thought leaders.

The fitness world is filled with charlatans and snake oil salesmen pushing the latest and greatest (and sometimes downright dangerous) workout programs, supplements and faux science on the unsuspecting masses. Sal, Adam and Justin use MindPump as a platform to shed the light of TRUTH on health, fitness and a host of other topics.”

In this interview, we discuss what makes Mind Pump so unique and successful and focus on how to build great partnerships and friendships that can help you change the world.

And yes, before anyone asks, the intro was recorded when I only had my temp use mic and the quality is shocking!

She started boxing at the age of 12 and in 2011 at the age of 19 she stepped into the octagon for the first time.

#43 Alice Little on intimacy, connection and why our perceptions of sex work are very wrong 

The Basics

Episode: #43 Alice Little on intimacy, connection and why our perceptions of sex work are very wrong

Who: Alice Little is the number one booking legal sex worker in the United States and works as a courtesan at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch. At only 4ft 8in, she is by far the tiniest lady at the legal brothels in Nevada. A New York native, she has worked as an EMT and horse jockey, loves electronic and tabletop entertainment, and adores intellectual stimulation. A frequent visitor to Virginia City and fascinated by its history, she loves exploring Nevada and all it has to offer. Alice has presented at over 50 Kink and BDSM events nationwide and frequently help couples with their problems in and out of the bedroom. She has recently started writing relationship advice articles for She Knows Media and was also recently featured on the Tim Ferriss Show.

In this interview, we discuss the benefits of sex work, intimacy, building connection with others and why your perceptions of sex work are very likely to be wrong. This topic may not be for everyone but Alice is very humble, honest, open and truthful about the pros and cons for sex workers and is trying to make the industry better for those who use it and work in it.

This interview may offend some but this podcast is here to delve into all areas and find out more and what makes people so successful and so appealing to others. Sex work is one of the oldest industries around and we would be doing a disservice to men by ignoring where we go wrong and by ignoring the industry and its positive benefits that can be provided to those who use it. I have never used a sex worker but this did not mean I was not interested in finding out more and learning about the other side of life as the saying goes. I hope that if anything, like Alice says you learn that sex workers are humans too and deserve the same level of respect and interest as anyone else and hopefully this interview changes your perceptions on sex work too or helps you at least consider your current views on the industry and those who work in it.
