When it comes to money, most people ask: “Do I have enough to feel financially stable?” You may love your job, but perhaps you need a little extra to feel like your bank account is in a secure place. This is where side jobs, hustling, and using your talents for some extra and very-sweet cha-ching come into play.
Here are 5 side gigs, that can help you bring in some extra cash and fatten your wallet:
If you’re “Uber” bored, sober, and want to show off your fancy-schmancy new car… driving for Uber is the side job for you. The good, the bad, and the hilariously tipsy come with this job. You not only get to learn the driving ins and outs of your surrounding area, you get to learn the ins and outs (whether you want to or not) of the people you get to cart around your neighborhood. Highly recommended, fun, and best of all – earns you extra cash.
If you are a business owner, you know that merchant service fees are just part of the deal. There is no way around them, but if you choose wisely, your business won’t fall into the black hole of unnecessary, non-easily explainable, and just all together over the top fees. Keep in mind, they too are running a business, but the right business-merchant service pairing can help you sleep easy knowing your payment processing solutions are in good hands.
This may not seem like a side hustle to make more money, but overall saving money in the business world can be even better than a side gig.
There is a vast amount of companies out there willing to pay people to tell them how they can improve in their marketing department. This is an easy way to make money from home (looking at you stay-at-home moms and dads). If you have a computer, are familiar with the internet, and can answer a question or several, many small, but mostly big, brands are willing to pay you for online market research surveys. For example, swagbucks… you get 5 extra bucks just for signing up. Not a bad side gig at all.
Do you have a knack for the world of arts and crafts? Something that may come easily to you may be another's worst nightmare. Giving the world a taste of your decorating expertise can not only bring in some extra dough, but allow you to share your skills with others. Can you make one-of-a-kind jewelry? Hand paint a spooky Halloween tree? Or needle point with the best of them? Well, guess what? There is large market out there just waiting to buy your creations. Original-handcrafted works of art are a hot commodity and people are willing to pay top dollar for what you’re offering.
You would be surprised by the amount of small, medium, or large tasks that people need help with daily, but don’t have the manpower to get them done. There are a ton of people who are willing to pay strangers to do things for them, such as grocery shop, help them move, pick up their great aunt Velda from the airport… you name it. Your hours are generally on a “when you can” basis, your pay is often negotiable, and you’ll absolutely enjoy all the characters and personalities you meet along the way… those facts are, of course, a bonus to getting paid.
Whether you need a few extra bucks, looking to give your business finances a boost, or just bored… any of these 5 “hustles” can be just what you are looking for.
