    Great ideas.
    In addition to this, one way can be if you have a car lying idle, you can attach it to a cab aggregator and make some extra money out of that.

      That’s a good idea but here your car won’t have a “T” permit so these aggregators might refrain from it.

    As Warren Buffet Says “Always Have 2 Sources of Income”. It’s really important to take it seriously in our life. Both ways, online and offline of making extra money, are really very good. I would certainly like to go with blogging and Youtube channel creation idea. Keep posting such informative and useful posts.

      Indeed Milind. Glad you are taking up a second source of income.
