Side hustles shouldn’t cost too much money but they may require some investment upfront for things like hosting, branding, and tools. You may decide that you want to do advertising to find your first customers. Whatever your growth and expansion plan is for your side hustle you need to be aware of your spend before it happens so plan your spending accordingly and measure your success to know whether you should continue.
You can sign up for free at Rentafriend to be someone else friend both part-time and full-time with pay between $20/hr – $50/hr. Yes, this sounds very strange from the outside looking in, but a lot of times you are helping someone get acquainted in a new town, meet a new group of friends, or simply have a cup of coffee with. Most importantly – friendship is always platonic (no touching).
Have an extra room in the house? Try renting it out on Airbnb.com. According to Smart Asset, you can pay up to 81% of your rent by listing one room in a two-bedroom home. If you're really looking to ring in the cash, renting out a private home or apartment is the way to go. According to Smart Asset's findings, rates for full apartments are significantly higher than those for just rooms, with annual profits ranging from $15,000 to $31,000 for a two-bedroom apartment.
Take note, it’s a UNIVERSITY, not a bootcamp that dumps a ton of information onto you and then leaves you hanging. University educations usually take 3-4 years to complete, and this is no different. (Frankly I’m irritated by ‘gurus’ who claim you can create an online business in 8 weeks. That’s utter bull! It might be long enough to get you started, but it can’t possibly come close to providing everything you need to grow a profitable business that’s going to generate you passive revenue for years to come). But don’t think that means you’re going to have to wait years to see results. The beauty of our Milestone Method is that you get results as you go. (And that’s the secret sauce keeping you motivated and engaged on your online business journey)

I am very skeptical of most MLMs (#55) but I really like the model of Melaleuca. This is an MLM that does not require any purchasing of items to sell upfront like most MLMs. Money is earned by enrolling others in their online shopping club and receiving a monthly commission on their purchases. Plus there are plenty of monetary and product incentives for enroller and customer. The products are great, ‘green’, non toxic items that replace what you are already buying at stores (cleaners, bath and body, vitamins, shampoo, weight loss, etc.). Check it out for yourself and as your side hustle business!
Companies will pay you to virtually sit on mock juries to give attorneys and other jury consultants feedback on cases they are currently handling. Think of these as focus groups. The cases are real, but your verdict will do little more than give those involved a prediction of how things might go when it's time to go to court. You can earn fees ranging from $5 to $60. Be sure to read all the disclaimers and details. If this sounds interesting go to eJury.com or OnlineVerdict.com to find a case.
I love creating new business forms and have recently been thinking about putting my forms out on the internet for some passive income. I was thinking free “as is”, $5 to have company information added in a header, and more dollars for a custom made form. I’m looking to learn the best way to get it out there. I just found your blogs this evening and look forward to reading many of them. Thank you in advance for all the excellent information that I will be using.
Becoming a Virtual Assistant Tip: When starting this side hustle job, you can find clients on popular websites like Upwork. However, you could start to see better results when you branch out on your own as an independent contractor. Starting up might be a bit harder as you need to find clients but you could earn more money this way. You can join popular Facebook groups for businesses or online retailers to offer your services.
Thanks for the list and the podcast. I am currently a notary in my state and completed a course and passed the test to get my certification as a loan signing agent. Do you have any suggestions for websites where I can register to start getting my name out there? Are signing agents employed by companies or are they contract workers (needing to withhold their own taxes, etc.)?
When you sell a service, you're essentially selling a relationship with yourself. And this requires that you spend more time and effort establishing your credibility and developing rapport with your visitors than is typically required on a site selling a physical product. You not only need to establish the benefits of the service you're offering, you also need to establish the value of you providing this service.
