While you are in school, you can find stuffs and be selling, for example you can be selling phone accessories, books, clothes and shoes. You can make a lot of money from selling stuffs. One secretes to make money offline as a student is to look for what people need i.e. a product that has high demand. Example is power banks, chargers, headsets and many more.

There are some colleges that face issues in power supply, you can take advantage of that and open a shop where people can charge their phones and a moderate cost.

That’s super cool; you can even get more than that if the demand is very high.
