Did you know that it is recommended that you have at least 7 streams of income?
How you create that income is up to you, and there are so many ways you can make extra money on the side.
But if you haven’t yet started and only have one stream of income from your 9-5 job, you may want to rethink how you are doing things.
Or maybe you have given it thought, but you just don’t know how to earn extra cash as a side income. If that’s the case, you’ve come to the right place.
In this guide, we’ll walk you through different side hustles and ways to make more money on the side to diversify your income streams!
Start Your Own Business
This may be the most popular way to make money with a side hustle, simply by starting your own business.
However, this suggestion does take quite a bit of time to figure out, sometimes even years. But it doesn’t have to be that way! You can start a business by selling something you’re good at making (and already making), like cakes, knitted hats, or something else!
It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but if you are good at it, then you can try to make it a business.
Take Surveys Online
An easy way to earn more cash online is to take surveys. You can search this on Google to find surveys that may pay you to take them.
Keep in mind, though, that many of these types of sites pay in gift cards instead of cash. You may also have to qualify for taking the survey before you can actually take it as well.
Sell Food Stamps
Did you know you could also try selling your food stamps online to get more cash?
Why waste food stamps if you are not going to use all of them? Instead, use what you need and sell the rest of the food stamps to get some extra cash.
Become an Influencer
If you love being on social media and aimlessly scrolling through Instagram on your work breaks or getting stuck on the TikTok app for hours at a time, then you may be a great fit to become an influencer!
All you have to do is pick a niche and grow an audience on a platform (or multiple platforms). Once you do this, brands will start to pay you to promote their products and services!
This is a fun and creative way to get more money on the side without starting your own business!
Drive for a Ride Share App
If you find that on the weekends, you don’t have much to do, you should consider signing up to drive for a ride share app.
You can make some quick cash by doing this, especially on the weekends in a busy area!
Sell Your Photos
If you love photography and have always spent time taking photos as a hobby of yours, you could easily make that hobby into a small business or simply sell your photos.
Or, you may not feel like you are a photographer, but you still take a lot of photos.
You don’t have to be an expert to sell your photos! You can do this online through several different sites to get money on the side. If you are a great photographer, though, you may be able to sell your photos to stores and online to customers!
Dog Sit in Your Free Time
If you’re a dog lover, why not advertise yourself as a dog sitter to get more money?
When you dog sit, you don’t have to change your entire day or days around; you simply just have to start caring for a dog! And if you are dog lover, that shouldn’t be too hard!
You can even have the dog come to your home so that you are not changing much at all.
Before you know it, you may be dog sitting multiple dogs at a time and getting multiple payments for dog sitting!
Did you know that you can get paid to drive and deliver items, even just as a normal person on your commute to work? Well, you can!
There are a few different platforms, with Roadie being one of the more popular ones. You simply have to plug in where you are going, and then deliver an item on your way! You will get paid right away after the gig is complete!
Become a Coach
Did you know you can coach something that you feel knowledgeable about? And no, this doesn’t mean coaching basketball or gymnastics (although you could do that, too), but rather it means coaching something like the following:
- Life coach
- Teach how to create goals
- Fitness coach
- Mindset coach
And so much more. The options are endless. You can coach about anything.
Did you build a DIY van? You can coach others to do the same. Did you overcome your mindset blocks about dating?
Then you can coach others to do the same!
How to Earn Extra Cash With Side Hustles
Whether you choose to become a coach, dog sit, sell your food stamps, start a business, or do all of the above, having multiple streams of income is a great way to be financially stable!
And now you know so many ways for how to earn extra cash, and there are so many other side hustles out there, too.
