College student tips for getting more income!

Hey all!


I'm wondering if anyone knows any ways that a college student could get hold of more income, I'm currently trying to buy some investment property and I just can't get a hold that kind of money working a minimum wage job. just wondering if the forum had any ideas! I'd really appreciate it!



Thanks for all the help

Drive for Uber/Lyft in your spare time






Sales job that pays comission


Couple things I can think of that wouldn't be limited to a low hourly rate.
