Maybe the state of the world is making you look at how you really want to spend your days and how you want to earn your salary. With more people than ever people looking for a change in career, let's have a look at some easy jobs you could start in 2021. You never know, you might find the role you've been searching for!
Perhaps one of the best roles on our list of easy jobs is dog walking. If you love four legged friends, you'll spend every day with them. Getting to know your client's dogs will be fulfilling, taking away one of the stresses of dog ownership for people, whilst getting paid. Many people have dogs but simply don't have the time to walk them every day. This could be due to work commitments or other life events going on. You could offer group walks, or maybe solo walks for dogs who perhaps don't like being around others. You even even extend your services to pet sitting when families are away for long weekends or holidays. Get out into the fresh air and enjoy walking some dogs for a living.
In the same vein as people being away for long weekends or holidays, have you ever thought about house sitting? Some home owners have huge commitments in their work life and that requires them to travel for large portions of the year. Obviously when that happens, their house is empty and there is a certain worry about burglars breaking in. The job of a house sitter it to live in the home, deterring potential burglars and even watering some house plants. This could be a great way to save money on rent for a portion of the year whilst also getting paid! The perfect addition to our list of easy jobs.
We've written about virtual assistant jobs before, but they are fantastic! You can pick your own clients, work your own hours, fit in your schedule around your life commitments and childcare. You could be doing data entry, diary management or organising travel for your clients. It could be one off jobs or longer contracts for you to offer support to businesses and individual entrepreneurs. If you have a laptop, broadband connection and a mobile phone, you could do this job from anywhere in the world, for clients in multiple countries.

If you have the knowledge and skill, there are people willing to pay you to share it with them. Many students fall behind at school or simply don't understand some subjects.
