10 strange ways to make money
10. Irish mud seller
This sounds too crazy for words, but it is really true: Pat Burke earns money by selling Irish earth. Pat frequently traveled back and forth from Ireland to America and his acquaintances often asked him to take a handful of land, which they could then scatter over the coffins of deceased relatives.
That gave Pat the idea to start a business that supplies Irish earth to Irish Americans. And a success that it is! They turn annual sales of more than a million! We were not so crazy about a bit of mud.
9. Professional cuddle
You will only need a nice hug, but nobody can get it. Then you just call the local cuddle service? Because yes, they exist! You can, for example, visit a professional cuddle in LA, Japan and in England. The rumors go that some huggers earn $ 360 a day. Something for you?
8. Game teacher
We know that professional gamers earn their living with gaming. But did you know that there are people who teach other people to play games? And for a lot of money too? And apparently those people are needed, because there is a whole website that helps you find exactly the right teacher for the good game.
A game-teacher is mainly intended for people who want to play a game of Call of Duty after a long day at work, but are crushed by other gamers who have much more time to practice.
7. Professional poop creator
Nobody does it with pleasure, of course: cleaning up dog poo. But, it is so neat. If you really dislike it, you can hire someone to do it for you. The staff at The Atlanta Pooper Scooper Service will visit you once or twice a week to make your driveway dirty. Ideal side-job right?

6. Torso for rent
This is also a fun: to offer your upper body for rent for advertisements. Jason Sadler does this. Every day he wears a different t-shirt, each with a different logo.
Strangely enough, his idea became popular very quickly and it is said that he earned $ 66,000 in the first three months! He even had to hire more people to walk around with a logo on their bodies. Smart!
5. Sell used panties
Hard evidence is not there, because people in this business prefer to remain anonymous, but it is argued that a lot of money can be made from used underwear. Very bizarre, but there seem to be people with a fetish for used underpants. Bah. Read a story about a woman who is in business.
4. Sell hair
If your hair meets certain requirements, you can earn a lot of money with it! Have you never painted or treated with chemicals and is it a minimum of 25 centimeters long? Then you can earn gold money with it. A strand of hair of 30 centimeters can quickly make you 250 dollars richer. Kaching!
3. Sell your virginity
We know: sex sells. But this is extreme: sell your virginity !! Who does that ?! Anyway, a lot of money does deliver. It is not known what the record is, but there are women who have sold their virginity for $ 700,000. Men can do it too, but that yields a little less money. The highest price ever paid for men’s virginity is $ 3,000.
Nah, maybe do not do this anyway!
2. Sell your life
If you thought you were selling virginity, it is strange … selling your whole life apparently! One Mike Merrill divided himself into 100,000 shares and sold them for $ 1 each. And now his biggest shareholders are making important decisions for him. So they decided whether to buy a new car, whether to paint his hair, whether he had to make out with his girlfriend …
Another kid, Ian Usher, literally sold his life. Includes home, belongings, job and friends. On eBay he caught 305,000 dollars and with that money he has rebuilt a new life. Bizarre.
1. Rent a little person
If you are a little person you can earn a lot of money by offering yourself for rent. At least, in the US and England. Do you want to do the most diverse things, like stripping, dressing up as Cupid and maybe even fighting another little person.
Very popular is renting a little person to dwarf throw … And yes, that is exactly what it suggests.
So if you’re without a job: be creative, because with the craziest things you can go
