Pretend yourself a shopper. You pick those items that your customer wants and deliver them to their place. The money will get transferred to you once you finish the delivery. The only drawback I find with this app is it is only available in the USA.

Packers & Movers

You can start a small business of packers and movers where you will help people moving out their furniture and stuffs from one place to another.

You might not get customers every day in this kind of business. But if you promote your services in your neibourhood places and let them know how you can help them. Once you start getting customers, making $100 a day will be easier.

Invest in small businesses

If you want to make $100 a day and $3000 a month, you have to invest and reinvest your money.

Pick up small and emerging businesses, study them well, and after a proper in and out analysis of all the possibilities and probabilities, invest your money.

For example, you have an acquaintance who is running a small app, making a start-up, invest some time and become a partner. The profit each month the company will make you will get a share from it.

Likewise, the profit share you get from investing in one reinvests it into another. Suppose you know there is a demand of English-speaking professionals in your area because people living there are non-English speaker.

If you could hire an English speaker and open a coaching institute, the chances are high people will join to learn the language. If you could hold their interest and fulfil their learning desire, in no time, your institution will flourish and earn the profit share.

Again, you keep turning the wheel of investing and reinvesting in different places.

With time, all your investment will give you more than $100 a day while you doing nothing except monitor your money.
