Because the Grind Never Stops, Amirite !? 😤💯
Looking for a second source of income but don’t want it to get in the way of your full-time job? Here’s the thing — we could all use the extra cash but not a lot of us have the time to get a second traditional job. There are tons of ways to earn a secondary income that’ll work around your schedule! We’re giving you 4 Easy Side Hustles that’ll earn you extra cash when you feel like it! I have to add this disclaimer … none of these suggestions are in any way meant to take the place of a full-time job … unless you’re a top notch HUSTLER!
Sell Your Old Crap!
Look … I know you’re rolling your eyes because literally EVERYONE suggests it, but it works! Let’s be honest — you’re hoarding a ton of stuff that you don’t really use or need. Sell it! Services such as eBay and OfferUp work miracles when it comes to selling old items that you think no one would want. Get rid of your old DVDs, video games, band merch, etc. You’d be surprised at who’s been looking for stuff like that!
I made a nice little fortune when I sold some collectible action figures I gathered over the years. Oh, and it’ll also help you declutter your space. Win-win, right?
Take Advantage Of Your Skills!
A wise man once said “If you’re good at something, never do it for free”. That man was The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’. Well, maybe he’s not the right person to take advice from but he wasn’t wrong in this instance.
If you’re someone who has a particular set of skills … like a wise man once sa- uh, nevermind — then why not use that skill to your benefit? Are you an expert on social media? Can you edit video like a pro? Love graphic design? Sign up for Fiverr or Upwork and use that talent as a freelancer.
Just sign-up, offer your service and wait for people to seek your service … OR … sign-up, actively browse the site for companies seeking help, and offer your services.
You don’t have to be a pro, you just have to prove you can do what they need. Give examples of your past work or links to work you’ve done. Some people actually make a living off of these sites!
I left ride-sharing off this list because there’s no doubt you haven’t already thought of it. However, the other option is to take advantage of food delivery! Services like UberEats and Postmates are great for anyone looking to earn extra cash while hardly lifting a finger. You don’t have to alter your existing schedule — just turn on the app and start bring people their food whenever you feel like it!
My sister does it when she has free time and earns anywhere from $80-$300 per week! She uses the income for her car payment, making it one less bill her main paycheck needs to cover. It’s no wonder more and more companies are using similar delivery methods …
Start a Blog
This one requires the most effort. Writing for a blog or website is more than just throwing together a jumbled mess or words and clicking “Publish” … *sweats nervously*.
If you’re a skilled writer with your finger on the pulse of trends and news, you have the potential to make a chunk of change for your work. After getting your blog set up with ads and partnerships you’ll start earning money depending on how much traffic you get.
Another way to you can take advantage of running a blog is to become an affiliate for various companies. You post about their products and link to them. If someone ends up purchasing said product after clicking on your link, you get paid!
