Wouldn’t you enjoy being paid for something you already do regularly, that doesn’t take much skill, and can put you in control of your own financial future? Grocery shopping gigs are growing in popularity. Many things we do on a regular basis are being outsourced, allowing more people to become employed.
It is interesting to find such opportunities online, but there is ample opportunity to start such a venture on your own. Whenever I think of errand jobs I think about the elderly, and those who cannot get out like you or I may be able to. All of us know how to shop for food, we just pick out what we want to eat/cook and that’s that! When we shop for others, we follow a list of the items they requested. I can’t imagine needing training to perform this type of work because we already know how.
If you just enjoy getting out and running errands this could be a good fit! I only found (1) company that actaually required background checks for delivery persons, so if the gigs are near you why not try it! Most times there is no training needed unless you are new to using smartphone apps.
