2. Winter job ideas for you who don’t mind being outdoors

If you are a ski or snowboard trainer then you know what you could do. For you, that, has not yet mastered this type of skills, though, we have some other ideas about how to make money during winter.

Delivery driving

Are you bold enough to bike around the city delivering food to the people that don’t dare go out on a cold winter day? Then consider delivery driving. As a proverb says, there is no bad weather, only bad clothing, so suit up with warm clothes, gloves and wool socks and start earning money with food deliveries. There is also the option to make your deliveries by car, if you have one, for a less hardcore experience. Before deciding, watch the following video featuring Emilio, a Foodora rider who delivers food even during freezing winter in Stockholm. Nothing is impossible, huh?

Conduite

When it is raining, snowing or the thermometer shows below zero, people will want to stay on the side of the road waiting for a taxi or the bus the minimum time possible. And they will probably use one of the driving apps to get a ride to their destination. You can, thus, make some good money by becoming a taxi driver with your car.
