It’s not very engaging, or mentally stimulating, but taking online surveys through companies like Survey Junkie do pay out (a little), believe it or not. Even if the payouts come in the form of Amazon gift cards, sites like Swagbucks can pay well. Just don't expect to make bank with this side business idea—I recommend combining it with another source of side income from this list of my best business ideas, and turning to surveys in your downtime when you need a little extra income.

Renting out an extra room sounds like a pretty smart idea. App development also sounds like a pretty good idea, I found the link you left about how Benny Hsu made 30000 in 30 days quite useful. I have always been unsure on how you can start a blog but the 6-part video that you left was very helpful to understand how better. I also liked the idea of car flipping. I think it could work quite well especially here in Hawaii. I have personally found that dividend investing to be very useful in increasing income. I was also completely shocked that you can be paid to be someone’s friend. That is crazy that you found that.
