You know how you sometimes need something but only for one day, one session or one project?
When you go check it out at the shop, you see it's so expensive and you're only going to need it once.
What if I told you there is an amazing solution for you, but sorry, for now, only if you're in the UK or US.
But you also know how you bought some equipment and you're not using it every day? Did you know you can rent it out and make money lending it out?
Whether you need to make money lending out something or borrow something that you only need once or twice, this is the most amazing things since Amazon and Uber!

A quick video for you to understand more about Fat Lama.
Why Peer-to-Peer Rental is the New Way to Network in 2018 and how you can make money lending
- Peer-to-peer rental marketplace Fat Lama (now launched in New York) provides creative freelancers and small businesses with a safe, fully-insured, convenient way to monetize their assets and meet others in the industry.
- Lenders on Fat Lama are earning up to £3,700 per month by renting out gear to local, like-minded creatives.
As well as granting borrowers cheap access to industry-standard equipment and giving lenders a secondary income stream, the peer-to-peer marketplace is providing creative professionals with a lively network of like-minded individuals and businesses.
In the UK, where Fat Lama first launched, peer-to-peer renting is connecting thousands of freelancers and small businesses, from a range of creative disciplines, every month.
DJs/producers and music rehearsal studios are earning a significant passive income from decks/PA hire; events companies rent lighting rigs, props, smoke machines; creative agencies rent projectors and computers, and filmmakers & photographers rent anything from camera bodies to gimbals and sliders.
Testimonial about Fat Lama:
Tom Bryan (Filmmaker, East London):
- “Fat Lama is a great platform to get connected with local creatives who have a demand for the kit that I own. From hiring out through Fat Lama, I’ve met great people in the industry. Some of which I will be working within the future.”
- “As a lazy networker, Fat Lama has brought many interesting people to my front door, and considering that filmmaking is a collaborative industry, this is an incredible thing.”
If you don't need to use Fat Lama today, remember you're going to in the future and bookmarking their page or saving the image above to Pinterest will help you when you need it because you know how it works: Some time in the future you need it and then you can't remember the name and you can't remember where you read about it either. Maybe you wrote the name down somewhere on a piece of paper and that is missing too.
I know, I've done it a thousand times.
Save it for yourself because I'm sure sometime in the future you're going to need it.
Don't forget to share
Have other friends in the US or UK who also has stuff they only use a few times a month and who would love to make money out of it by lending it out? Or do you know someone who is having a massive party and they will only need a sound system only once?
Or some friend wants to make a quality short film or take awesome pictures but only once (like at a wedding) and never again?
Share this opportunity to make money lending to everyone you know in the US or UK so that they too can reap the benefits of Fat Lama.
Other money-making opportunities
If you are interested in learning more about other money-making opportunities, the internet has opened up a massive amount of possibilities.
BUT ... you will see everywhere I write about making money or making money online, I'm very particular to let you know, not everything works for everybody.
Just like in every other job, if you can't work with your hands, you should not become an apprentice or if you can't type, spell or don't know grammar, you should not even consider becoming a Transcriber.
It is exactly the same in the online world - you won't make money in something you can't do and you should be able to work without supervision and be persistent because I can promise you one thing - IT'S NOT EASY.
You're going to have to learn a lot and you could only start making money a year or two from the day you start in some instances.
Now, after I've tried to let you forget about the idea, if you're still interested, you can take a look at the following because I've moved my articles about making money online to another site:
Or building a Website or a Blog.
And to be honest with you, if you're too lazy to learn new things, making money online is not for you either.
