Who wouldn’t be happy with some extra cash? Our day jobs might earn us enough money for the essentials and a bit more, but a side hustle should give you some more financial freedom and help you reach your financial goals.
A side hustle is something you should be able to do on the side. These ‘jobs’ usually aren’t enough to sustain you alone and shouldn’t really be your primary source of income unless you become insanely successful at them.
Let’s look at a few easy side hustles that anyone can take part in!
Ridesharing and/or Delivering Food
Ridesharing and delivery are some of the fastest-growing trends in the world, which also makes them one of the best side hustles. If you own a car and want to earn some extra cash, apps like Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, and UberEATS allow you to earn on your own terms.
If you don’t mind having strangers in your car, giving people rides whenever you are free is a great way to earn some extra money. Delivering food and groceries is also a viable option for people who don’t wanna drive strangers around. While it may not be the most attractive side hustle, this avenue could earn you a regular income, especially if you live in a big urban city.
Online tutoring has been gaining steady popularity over the last decade. The best thing about this side hustle is the convenience. You decide when you want to teach, you decide how many sessions you are willing to go through, and you decide how many students you want.
Online platforms like Wyzant, Whizz, Chegg, and many more make it very easy to find students. You can earn $40-$80 per hour on these platforms. If you want even more freedom, you could search for and find your own students and decide on classes, payments, and more.
The most popular online tutoring nowadays is second language tutoring for overseas students. All that is required is a computer, an internet connection, a camera, and a mic! You can choose to teach anything from language to math. You could also always transition into tutoring offline whenever you want!
Blogging is one of the simplest side hustles you can do while at home. It is also something that, if done well, could earn you enough for it to become your main source of income. You can blog and write about anything and everything you want. It could be your passion, your hobby, or anything you know a lot about.
Growing a blog enough to start earning money takes some time and effort. But if done consistently, you could be earning good money after about a year. If you want something to turn into something more than just a side hustle, blogging should be your choice! You can earn money through advertising on your blogs, through affiliate marketing, drop shipping, and even through subscriptions.
Offer Spare Rooms for Rent
If you have a spare room or even an entire home, you can earn a lot through AirBnB and other rental apps. People and tourists visiting a city or town are always looking for places to stay, and AirBnBs are almost always cheaper than living in Hotels.
Offering your empty rooms to guests is an excellent avenue for earning income. Airbnb also verifies and checks guests, so you don’t have to worry about a lot. You get paid within 24 hours of a guest checking in, and it is a perfect side hustle for people who live in or near tourist destinations.
