    Don't TRY to purposely think of things to make/produce/buy and sell on, you'll rarely think of anything worthwhile!

    Most of the best and most successful inventions and innovative products come from just realising one day. You'll encounter a problem or something you want, and you cant find it - you start selling it!

    Unfortunately, like I said, it's difficult to think of ideas on the spot!

    Invest some money in a revolutionary product and go to Dragons' Den and present it. If you're lucky, you end up with a huge business making hundreds of thousands every year.

    Call centre. I give my availability week by week and the supervisors divvy out the shifts based on when you're available.

    It has the downside of you getting few or no shifts if projects are low, but it's is the most flexible student job I've seen.

    I don't even know where my nearest call centre is, I don't exactly live in a place with thriving industry and loads of offices:/

    You asked how to make money.

    Kareir took this to it's literal conclusion and recommended forgery, so that you can literally "make" money.

    Good joke.

    An events staffing agency is a good bet, I was and still am on the books of one - called up weekly to see what they had to offer/said when I was available....not guaranteed, but in summer there is usually plenty of work, usually means working event days though (bonfire night, new years,)
