For many of us, running errands like going to the grocery store and picking up dry cleaning is tedious work that we often don’t have time for. As a working woman or even a stay-at-home mom, the days can get filled to the brim with essential activities, leaving little time for the little things that need to be done. After all, isn’t that why many busy people tend to hire assistants? Then there are those of us who love running errands and thrive on it. If we could make a living off of running errands, we would! Did you know that you can? If you’re looking to make some extra cash on the side, have some time on your hands and like to run errands, you can definitely make money doing so!
Here are some ways on how to make money running errands:
