5 Ways to Earn More Side Money in Las Vegas

Yes, you can always get a part-time job. You know that. But another job is another commitment. And perhaps you’d like the freedom of earning a little side money elsewhere.

With that being said, there are a lot of opportunities in Las Vegas and let’s kick off 5 Ways to Earn More Side Money in Las Vegas with #1:

1. Rideshare – After having to go through a lot of corruption legal issues, Uber and Lyft are officially operating in Las Vegas as of last year. Unlike most other cities, a business license is required in Nevada (~$350/yr), but driving on weekends and holidays can net you an easy $20/hr+. If you’re thinking about 9-5 full time, you’re probably looking at a lot less. But this article is about side money and ridesharing is hot in Las Vegas. We’ve posted the car requirements for Uber and Lyft last week, as well as a few Vegas promo codes to help you get started with a little extra $$$ as either a rider or driver.

To become a driver you’ll need at least 2006 or newer (2008 for Lyft) 4 door car, we’ve covered a few car dealerships here.

2. Consignment – Perhaps you don’t have much time, but you have a ton of crap, consignment might be the thing for you. The old adage goes, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Whether it’s furniture or clothing, there are a lot of different consignment stores in Las Vegas that you can consign, or straight up sell with.

3. Clinical Trials – Depending on the trial, you can earn hundreds, to thousands of dollars for trials. Of course, clinical trials does have it’s set of cons, including side effects from the trial. Here are a couple options to look at:

4. Craigslist Gigs – Lots of shitty gigs out there, but with a ton of conferences coming to Vegas on a weekly basis, I do see a lot of exhibitors paying for people to work the booth. Some exhibitors also work with staffing companies.

5. Start a Business – Nevada is one of the most tax friendly states to start a business, and you can easily start as a sole proprietor.  For more, business attorney Gina Bongiovi has a guide on how to start a business in Las Vegas.
