Side Hustle Ideas Anyone Can Do
Side hustle ideas like these are easy for just about anyone to do these days. There is at least one or two things on the list below that can work for you, regardless of where you live and what your skill set may be. Making just an extra $50 a week can add up to $2600 a year for savings. This can easily be paying off a credit card or paying for a luxury weekend away with your spouse!
- Server. I know, I know, you thought your restaurant days were long gone, but the truth is serving is a great side gig. Many restaurants are more than happy to work with your schedule and depending on how busy the restaurant gets, you can make a lot of money just working one or two days per week. If you are good at your job and pick a busy day each week to work, you can easily bring home an extra $200-$300 a month in tips alone. Pick a restaurant that you know has good traffic, and a day that should be busy for the best results.
- Thrift store flipping. Do you spend much time in thrift stores? The next time you are there, take a longer look around and see if you find any great deals on items that would sell easily. Think of name brand clothing, furniture, handbags, etc. Just be sure to have your smartphone handy to research the item and see what it will actually sell for. These can be sold on eBay, local online swap shops, Craigslist, or use other online resalers or even apps that allow you to upload images and share with local communities. I love the book, How to Sell on eBay, as a resource that is affordable and can help you get started making money easily.
- Uber/Lyft driver. These rideshare companies have changed the way we travel and the way that we can earn money. If you have a vehicle that meets the qualifications of one of these companies, you may want to look into signing up as a rideshare driver and start bringing in some extra cash. I recently read a report that Uber drivers, on average, earn about $14 per hour, with some making much more.
- Personal Assistant. Life is busy these days and many professionals need help with lots of different tasks. Check out Craigslist and TaskRabbit to find personal assistant jobs. Additionally, if you know any bloggers, website owners, or even small businesses, you might want to take advantage of that relationship to offer your unique services to help them with odds and ends or social media management.
- Daycare. Are you wanting to make money while also staying home with your children? Why not offer to babysit or provide daycare for one or two families? Depending on the state you live in, you can often watch up to 5 children (including your own) without a full-blown daycare license. This is a great way to make money doing something you would already be doing every day anyone. Just make sure to put down specific rules and guidelines as well as make sure you are charging enough to cover extra expenses.
- Tutoring. Do you have a strong knowledge of a certain subject? Why not offer a tutoring service to struggling students to help them get through their classes? Tutors earn, on average, $17 per hour. If you have a teaching degree, you can also do something like offer work through VIP Kid.
- Apply to work at festivals/fairs/markets, etc. If you just need some quick money and aren’t looking for a long-term side gig, you can apply to work at your local state or county fair, music or art festivals or even farmer’s markets and flea markets. These are often short-term (a weekend to a couple of weeks long) and most are looking for workers. The bonus is you often get free passes so you can attend or invite your family to attend.
These are some of the best side hustle ideas that make real money. These are more than just a few dollars here and there, but real money that can provide for savings or pay off bills. No matter what your financial needs may be, you’ll be able to make extra cash with these ideas!
