Trying to make some extra dough? Want to do work that feels meaningful? Rent yourself out on rentoid! (No we don’t mean it like THAT)
Rentoid is all about creating value from things that aren’t being used as much as they could be. The stuff we own is a classic example of this, but something else that isn’t being used as much as it could be is us - or more specifically, our labour, time, skills etc
- Do you have any skills that someone in your community might need?
- Can you can make a good curry? Put yourself up on rentoid and I’ll hire you to cook for me one night!
- Can you speak a Chinese? I’ll hire you to be my tutor!
- Can you play jazz guitar? I’m having a dinner party and it would be SO cool to have some live music!
People often have many special talents they have acquired over the years, and they don’t have to be things you have learnt during your formal education or in your professional life either!
If you don’t have any skills that’s fine too! Want to earn some extra cash and do some good? Rent out your physical labour to the older lady next door who needs some furniture moved. Go and baby sit for the family down the road. Come over to my place and I’ll pay you a few bucks to do the washing up because I had a long day at work and just don’t feel like it!
So list yourself on rentoid to make some extra cash, help your community and hey, you might even have some fun doing it!
