    5. Being a VR game tester

    Many companies need people to test their VR games before releasing them. Note that you don't have to be good at the games but just able to give feedback on what is fun or not fun about the experience of playing them. Here's an article I wrote about how one person made $2000 a month doing this: https://notepd.com/blog/vr-game-tester/

    CompetitionOrganizer Organize gaming tournaments and competitions. Offer prizes to the winners, and attract sponsors to help cover the costs. People who enter the competitions can pay an entry fee, and you can also charge for other services such as coaching or help with setting up the tournament.
