Side hustles are a great way to make some extra money, and they offer a lot of benefits that regular jobs don't. For one, they're a great way to build your skills and portfolio. If you're working on a side hustle in your spare time, you'll be able to improve your skills and learn new ones. You'll also be able to build a portfolio of work that you can use to show potential employers. Additionally, side hustles can help you network with other people in your field. By networking with other people who are doing similar work, you'll be able to learn more about the industry and find potential collaborators or mentors. Lastly, side hustles can help you stay motivated and focused. When you have a regular job, things might become routine. With a side hustle, you'll have something else to focus on outside of work, which will help you stay balanced and productive.
Here are the best 5 side hustles I’ve done, 2 of which I still do today
1. Walking Dog
Easy, quick, build community, insanely good pay sometimes.
2. Friends & Family Gigs
I used to work weekends at an auction house, my only official job. Easy & quick employment.
3. Sell your skills
I used to offer simple web services like setting up a WordPress site) I've made a quick $3k in a 1-2 week job. This tweet explains it even better and takes it to the next level. If you don't know what skills to start with check out Udmey for jobs you might be interested in doing and you'll find loads of comps
4. Affiliate Marketing
If you're doing some small gigs already it's easy to naturally funnel some clients towards products/ services that would help them. I still do this with brokers I highly recommend to my community.
I still do this today as well. When we leave for a longer trip we’ll rent out our place and we get more money for it than we pay in rent!
Document your trades, and watchlist lessons on TradeJournal and once you meet the criteria you can Monetize your content there. Just like on YouTube. As a trader, you're supposed to be documenting your trades every day, so you could be making an additional stream of rev by already doing what you're doing now!
Here’s a video where I go into much more detail and also share one crazy side hustle I found a teenager doing to make over $4k per month!
....and for everyone who's side hustle is Trading/Investing. Then I hope this meme fits you!
