Side hustle - pens and notebook

Be a dasher at DoorDash

With DoorDash, you can earn money by delivering food from restaurants, and even groceries to customers. Get paid up to $25 an hour.

You must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license. You’ll also need a smartphone and undergo background checks.

This side hustle doesn’t require any special skills. If you’re looking to earn money, you can sign up with DoorDash here.

Be a virtual assistant

Virtual assistants are the in thing now. This is another side hustle that helps you earn extra money. You can make $30 an hour.

Many companies are now only willing to employ virtual assistants on a contract basis to save costs. If you’re good with administrative tasks, why not give this a go?

Be a freelance writer

Do you love writing? Become a freelance writer and earn extra money to give your income an extra boost.

Look for freelance online writing jobs at:

Problogger job noticeboards 

Freelance Writing

Be a Shipt Shopper

As a Shipt shopper, you can earn up to $22 per hour. If you enjoy grocery shopping, this job may be ideal for you.

There’s a lot of flexibility. You choose how much work and when you want to work. You do need to have reliable transport and pass a background check.

Be a tutor and/or online tutor

This is ideal as you get paid for your skills and knowledge, so you’ll almost always earn more than a checkout operator.

Online tutoring is a great way to make extra money. You save time and gas on travelling. Your learners can be from anywhere in the world.

Be an English Teacher

If teaching English is your passion, sign up with Vipkid here.

Teachers get paid up to $22 an hour. You’ll need a university degree and the work is open to North American teachers only.

You can also sign up with QKids here.You don’t need a degree, but you must be studying towards one. You get paid up to $20 an hour.

Be an examination invigilator

I’m part of a group of casual invigilators for an international English examination center. They have hundreds of candidates, and exams are held many times a year.

This side hustle has netted me more than a thousand dollars so far. There’s flexibility too as I can choose to earn more if I want to.

I’ve found it fun as I get to work with other folks outside my usual job. Ask at your local colleges and if they’re examination centres, chances are they’ll need people.

Be paid for doing surveys and online tasks

Answering surveys and carrying out online tasks can be easy as you get paid to do little tasks that you’ll do anyway.

Depending on what you qualify for and the amount of time you spend, you can earn upwards of $50 to a couple of hundred.

These are ideal for those who get some spare moments during their day. You can earn points for watching videos and playing games. Sign up with Swagbucks using my link here to get a $5 bonus.

Swagbucks is great because you can quickly earn up to a hundred depending on how much time you can spare.

Be a cleaner or handyman

Do you love cleaning or are you handy with tools?

If you don’t want the hassle of looking up for customers yourself, you can sign up with Handy.

You can earn $22 or $45 an hour depending on the jobs. You get to choose your hours and your payment is deposited straight into your bank account.

Be a data entry administrator

This can be a good way to earn more money. I know of a student who does this part-time at his college.

Be a Busker

Can you play an instrument or sing well? Do you enjoy sharing your music?

The pros are you decide how long you want to busk. Make sure you’re reasonably well-dressed when performing, as it gives passersby a positive impression and you may receive more money.

A suggestion is to go to popular farmers’ markets – their patrons usually have loose change to spare. Remember to check that busking is permitted.

I’ve heard of buskers who earn more than $240 in three and a half hours on a good day. People enjoy her great music and she gets rewarded with cash for providing entertainment.

Other places you can try are outside supermarkets and even in shopping malls. Just call up to make sure it’s permitted.

Be a laborer

If you’re fit and strong, chances are that you are a good candidate for this. Check for opportunities online.

Be a furniture mover

Again, if you’re strong enough, you can make money moving people’s stuff. I know of an engineering undergrad who puts his name down for this casual position, as he loves the exercise this jobs entails.

You can sign up as a Dolly Helper.

You must be able to lift more than 75 pounds.

So how can you earn?

If you have a cargo van, pickup truck or box truck, you can earn $30 per hour or more.

You still earn $15 per hour or more if you help those who have transport. Again you get to choose your schedule which is a great plus.

Guess what?

As a tiny person, I have joined forces with two other folks to move house a few times. We are not at all muscular, burly or hefty! It can be done when you use effective moving strategies and tools like a hand truck.

Be a model

A relative of mine was paid to do a one time modelling session. It was fun as he netted extra cash. Another benefit is that his clothes are hand picked by a fashion consultant. Enquire at modelling agencies to find out more.

Be a dog walker

In some cities, you can earn up to $50 an hour and get some exercise too. Learn more about dog behavior from library books or online. Knowing how to manage dogs can make you a sought after dog walker.

Be a junk mail distributor

This is for those who love the outdoors and exercise. The needed qualities are fitness and reliability.

Be a babysitter

If you love children, why not consider babysitting. If you’ve experience and a first aid certificate, chances are good.

A friend from my prenatal group helped to babysit my baby when my maternity leave ended. I paid her an hourly rate. Her baby was about the same age as mine and both babies benefited from the social interaction.

Be an on-call childcare reliever

A colleague of mine works as a part time reliever for a big childcare company with multiple branches. In addition to her usual part-time job, she doubles up as a childcare reliever during her off days.

Last heard, she was offered a full time position at the childcare centre she helps out at.

Be an Uber or Lyft driver

Do you have a vehicle that qualifies to be used for this purpose?

There’re different vehicle requirements depending on which state you’re in. Of course your vehicle needs to be in good condition.

You can choose your own schedule. Sign up with Lyft here and start earning your $1000 after your first 125 rides.

You can also earn extra cash by signing up with Uber here.

Be a host with AirBnb

If you’ve an extra room in your house, why not rent it out?

This works really well if you enjoy meeting travellers from other countries. My friend lives on a hilltop and during peak seasons, her rooms are occupied 23 out of 31 days.

Be a book binder

Do you love handling books and repairing them?

An ex-neighbour in her 60s learnt bookbinding out of interest. It started as a hobby which soon became her side hustle.

I was given a tour of her hobby room – her pride and joy. She was earning good income from multiple orders for her services. The extra cash she made paid for her kitchen makeover.

Before you take on these side hustles, ask yourself whether you’ll have sufficient time and energy. How will side hustles impact your family life? Are you prepared to put in extra effort and time outside your usual job?

Answering these questions will give you greater clarity and focus, and will help you create a sustainable side hustle in the long term.

Whatever your decision, I believe that you can always increase your income and move towards greater financial freedom.

These side hustle ideas are active income sources meaning that you put in time and effort to make money. When you’ve saved sufficient money, it’s time to think of making your money do the work for you, that is, passively.

You can make money passively and my knowledgeable friend, Tom from Dividends Diversify has written an excellent post on income producing assets to make money passively.
