If you had written a book you can upload it on Amazon and sell it there. Your goal is not only to upload the material but also to market it and try to get some good reviews on the book because otherwise, you’d get no sales at all.

If you are looking to make some quick cash on the side, you could explore the Mechanical Turk, which connects business owners to people who can get certain jobs done quickly and cheaply.
