Let’s go back and discuss what my uncle does. It was the first month after retirement. My uncle was relaxing completely. The next month on-wards he felt vacuum. He badly missed his office routine. The family members’ didn’t have time to talk with him. Yes, it’s a busy world. Even my aunt was busy with her household chores.
My uncle started spending time on his smartphone and Television. But, still he felt there is more time left. He loved travelling especially to spiritual places. With his travel photographs, he started a blog sharing all his spiritual experiences.
Although he could not earn money as he was in his full time job, he was able to keep him busy the entire day. He was so happy, as he learned new skills and created a like-minded community. He received many accolades. After he crossed, 65 years he couldn’t travel much. He started taking ‘Veda classes’ at his house. He is so happy, as he got 62 kids learning Veda from him. He is so proud that he could bring some changes. The retired brains are so powerful and I always see energy flowing with senior persons.

If yes, then I think you should rent your space, and earn money without doing anything. Just by providing some space for rent and some basic things like a connection of electricity and water, you can earn money on per month basis and I think it is the best way to earn money.
Food available in canteens or restaurants is completely useless and not good for health. We all remember the taste of our home food, especially when it was made by our mother. So this is the best way to earn money especially for ladies who love cooking.
At big cities, especially in morning mostly everyone is in hurry to reach office, that they hardly find any time to prepare their lunch, then there you can provide this service and earn money as no one refuses to have home food, free from unhealthy things.

Most of the retired persons or senior citizens have enough knowledge to share, but where?
If you know how to teach, how to guide students in their studies then I am saying you are capable of earning money online by this skill. There were many websites on the internet which help you to grow. An example is Tutor.com, where you can teach students and earn money. This website gives you an already set platform.
Even if you have some skills and knowledge about some software, you can give training to many students on website name Udemy and can earn good money.
Yes, writing book is also a good source of income. You can take a social topic or of a topic of your choice and start writing on it. Now I will suggest you, sell your books on Amazon, which is a wonderful place to sell your book or you can contact some big booksellers.
If you don’t want to write a complete lengthy book, you can just write an eBook which is as an electronic book. These books can be read on laptop, computer or even on your device.

Nowadays domain selling has also become a good source of money. As you all know everyone wants to expand their business and for this they use internet, and after making website they gave their business a new direction.
But you know that they need domain for their website. If you already buy a domain you can charge them ten times of the actual cost and they have to pay.
My suggestion is that you must buy .com(dot com) as it is mostly in demand.
