Perhaps you’re in a tight spot financially and could use some extra cash, whether it be for a vacation or to pay for your child’s volleyball league. Maybe money is just tight. 

I’ve been there, and though you might not want to commit to a second full-time job, there are a lot of other ways you can make money on the side. 

Read below to help brainstorm for ideas, and look at the pros and cons before you try out something you might not enjoy. It’s such a joy when your side hustle is something you love doing with a passion!  

1. Advertising on Your Car

    Advertising on Your Car
      • Pros: You get paid to drive and do what you normally do - drive.
      • Cons: Socially, you may not enjoy having an advertisement on your car.
      • How Much You Can Make:

        $100 - $400 per month

      • How to Begin:

        Sign up with a car wrap advertising company.

      • The Fun Part:

        You can make money without putting in much effort.

    You can get paid while going about your regular tasks if you sign up with a car wrap advertising company.

    In order to make money, you need to be someone who drives around and gains a good amount of miles on your car regularly.

    Your earnings depend on how much you drive, the type of car you drive, and the size of your ad.

    2. Afterschool Programs

      Afterschool Programs
        • Pros: You get to spend hours with children.
        • Cons: You have to spend time with children.
        • How Much You Can Make:

          $17/hour (for tutors)

        • How to Begin:

          Look into getting a proper license for your area.

        • The Fun Part:

          Relive your childhood by playing games with kids and doing art projects like finger painting.

      There is always a need for afterschool programs. With the rising costs of living, more and more parents need to work, which means that their kids need a place to go after school.

      Depending on your love for children, you may or may not thoroughly enjoy this.

      If you can offer tutoring services or art lessons, the parents enjoy putting their kids in afterschool programs that are more beneficial than not.

      Usually the programs are geared towards pre-K to lower elementary school kids, as older kids can usually stay home without supervision.

      Since proper licensing can vary from location to location, look at your local area and their regulations for afterschool programs. You might be granted funding from your government for your program for snacks and art supplies.

      3. Airbnb Host

      • airbnb host
        Airbnb Host
          • Pros: Your property gains value as renters pay off your mortgage.
          • Cons: People can trash your place or steal items. Especially if your location is far from your home, it can be a pain to deal with.
          • How Much You Can Make:

            $200 - $10,000 per month

          • How to Begin:

            Sign up with Airbnb to host your home.

          • The Fun Part:

            You can meet new guests and/or have extra income with little effort.

        If you have an extra room in your house or you own extra property, one source of extra income could be to rent out your home.

        Airbnb protects you with $1M liability insurance, $1M damage protection, deep cleaning protection, and so forth. People might damage your property by throwing parties, breaking items, or stealing things.

        However, there is nothing like having guests pay for your mortgage as your property appreciates. Read here to find out more information on how to become an Airbnb host.

        4. Babysitting

        • babysitting
          Babysitting
            • Pros: Whether you are young and energetic or an old empty nester, you might find joy spending time with kids.
            • Cons: Sometimes you see troubling patterns in how the parents raise their kids.
            • How Much You Can Make:

              $21/hour (national average)

            • How to Begin:

              Let your friends know that you are free to babysit or market yourself on social media.

            • The Fun Part:

              You get to cuddle with babies and play with kids.

          There is always a need for babysitters. Parents have to work in order to support their families, and before kids are mature, it isn’t safe to leave them at home. Parents also need date nights. If you love children, this will be a fun gig for you.

          “I absolutely love caring for babies and toddlers!” – Hayley Silverman, nanny in Santa Clarita, California

          Sometimes the gig is just staying in the house while the children sleep.

          Sometimes you see parents doing things that can cause you concern; for example, some kids have a diet that entirely consists of chips; other times, parents let their kids get away with everything.

          When children have no discipline, the gig becomes tiring quickly.

          On the whole, when you have adorable children, the gig is absolutely enjoyable.

          5. Be an Extra in Movies

          • be an extra in movies
            Be an Extra in Movies
              • Pros: You can network and be a part of the film industry without a lot of extra stress.
              • Cons: A lot of times you are on the set for several hours and have to deal with parking difficulties.
              • How Much You Can Make:

                $13/hour (national average)

              • How to Begin:

                Begin by making a profile on websites like ExtrasAccess, and they start sending you job listings via email.

              • The Fun Part:

                You get to be on television and in movies!

            All movies and television shows need extras in the background. Whether a scene is being filmed on the street or in a high school, they need more people walking around than the main actors.

            You’re probably going to be responsible for your own hair and makeup; you need to be ready to spend the whole day on the set. Most of the time, no phones are allowed on set, so bring something to do.

            If you’re lucky, you’ll get a speaking part or a casting director will notice you for future gigs.

            6. Blogging

            • blogging
              Blogging
                • Pros: You get to be your own boss and have a flexible schedule.
                • Cons: In order to make a lot of money from it, you need to gain a large following.
                • How Much You Can Make:

                  $0 - $1 million+

                • How to Begin:

                  Read up on how to create a successful blog or take a course.

                • The Fun Part:

                  You can make money quietly at home while sharing information you feel passionate about.

              If you want to make money from blogging, have expertise on a particular subject, are ready to write content, and commit to a long-term game, blogging will be a great side gig for you.

              There is a lot of competition in blogging, so in order to earn money from blogging, you do need to be patient and willing to create a lot of content without earning any money at first.  

              You can tune into a blogging online course to learn about how to earn money, how to gain affiliate links, how to join ad networks, learn about SEOs, and how to advertise products such as mugs and clothing.

              Even this blog you’re reading, MoneyDoneRight, brings in some income!

              7. Bookkeeper

              • bookkeeper
                Bookkeeper
                  • Pros: You can work remotely with flexible hours.
                  • Cons: You don’t get to interact much with others, but this might be a pro for you.
                  • How Much You Can Make:

                    $20/hour (national average)

                  • How to Begin:

                    Though it would help, you don’t need to have a degree in accounting. You just need a strong attention to detail.

                  • The Fun Part:

                    You can make money at home without office drama.

                Bookkeepers keep track of the financial flow of a company’s finances. If you have a strong eye for detail and the ability to multitask, this is a good side gig for you. You can also work for multiple businesses at the same time.

                Your hours are flexible and you can work from home. If you enjoy numbers and detective work, it’s a great opportunity to use those skills.

                "You get to help others who want to run a business but don’t understand the numbers – helping them to do what they thrive at, while you do what you are good at!” – Lori Wellons, bookkeeper and head of training for UniFi

                You do have to spend a lot of time at your computer, and you don’t get to interact with people much, but some people enjoy the solitude and lack of office drama.

                8. Brand Ambassador

                • brand ambassador
                  Brand Ambassador
                    • Pros: You can make easy money and earn free products by agreeing to be a brand ambassador.
                    • Cons: Your followers notice that you’re trying to sell them stuff and dislike it.
                    • How Much You Can Make:

                      $0 - $4,000 per contract (depending on the number of followers you have)

                    • How to Begin:

                      Post regularly and have a public account. Gain followers.

                    • The Fun Part:

                      You get free boxes of fun stuff, like makeup, food, or new shoes!

                  You might be pretty nifty at social media and have thousands of followers. Companies will pay you to advertise for them – whether it be a food company or a makeup company.

                  Some brand ambassadors get paid thousands of dollars, but others are simply offered free products.

                  You post on social media or customer review sites and wear promotional clothing items or stickers.

                  The company is paying you for advertising. The more influence you have, the more a company will pay you to say good things about them.

                  9. Caregiver

                  • çaregiver
                    Caregiver
                      • Pros: If you enjoy caring for the elderly, this job can be fulfilling.
                      • Cons: You need to have a lot of patience when working with the elderly, especially those with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
                      • How Much You Can Make:

                        $17/hour

                      • How to Begin:

                        You can try volunteering at charity organizations to give free caregiving services and see how you like it. To pursue it for a side hustle, get a CNA license.

                      • The Fun Part:

                        You might enjoy the slow pace and wisdom of the elderly, while being a nurturing figure.

                    Some caregivers are needed during the day, but if you want this for a side gig, night shifts are also high in demand.

                    My friend needed a caregiver for her grandmother in the middle of the night, who only woke 1-2 times. If you did a gig like this, you would get paid for every hour they sleep.

                    Other times, your job would consist of driving the elderly to appointments or keeping them company during the day. Sometimes they need assistance with hygiene and getting dressed.

                    If you would like to be a skilled caregiver and get paid, then you would need CNA training, which is relatively cheap and takes about one month long. You can usually find a CNA training course at your local college or American Red Cross.

                    10. Carpet Cleaning

                    • carpet cleaning
                      Carpet Cleaning
                        • Pros: You can make your own hours and can work alone.
                        • Cons: Buying your equipment at the beginning can get expensive.
                        • How Much You Can Make:

                          $19.16/hour (national average)

                        • How to Begin:

                          Buy carpet cleaning equipment. Begin to market yourself.

                        • The Fun Part:

                          You can exercise while you work.

                      Carpet cleaning can be a good side gig for people who don’t mind physical movement. It can be exhausting, but you can charge quite a bit per square foot.

                      Start up can be expensive, depending on how expensive your machinery is; you may want to invest in equipment insurance. You will also need a way to transport your machinery.

                      You will need to market yourself, as you need new clients every day to keep a steady income.

                      11. Computer Services

                      • computer services
                        Computer Services
                          • Pros: You can usually make a good amount of money, even as a side gig.
                          • Cons: You have to deal with people who are angry and stressed out because their computers aren’t working.
                          • How Much You Can Make:

                            $22.94 per hour for IT support

                          • How to Begin:

                            Get education in computers or engineering.

                          • The Fun Part:

                            You can feel like a superhero to someone's distress.

                        There isn’t a shortage of baby boomers and Gen Xers who don’t know how to run a computer. Elderly people need help setting up their televisions and Wi-Fi. Others don’t know how to upgrade their computers.

                        In order to do this as a side gig, get some additional education in computer science or engineering. Also, gain professional experience. IT certification helps to open up more doors.

                        You do have to work alone and often with stressed out clients who are panicking about their computers.

                        If you are young, even without education, you might be surprised to see how much you naturally know about computers compared to elderly generations who need your help.

                        12. Cottage Home Food Business

                        • cottage home food business

                            • Pros: If you’re baking for yourself, it’s easy to mass produce and make money on the side. It’s also wonderful to bless other people with yummy food.
                            • Cons: As with any business, you have to jump through legal hoops and deal with customers.
                            • How Much You Can Make:

                              $10 - $100 per item sold

                            • How to Begin:

                              Begin by spreading the word among family and friends and through social media.

                              You can share your love for food with others. It feels like giving out gifts for your job!

                          If you are particularly skilled at making food items, check with your state laws to see what you can sell legally from your own kitchen with a cottage food license. Here are some items you might want to sell:

                          Things to Sell With Cottage Food licenses:

                          • Cakes

                          • Pies
                          • Breads

                          Look into your state laws to get a valid business license, zoning clearance, and a Cottage Food license.

                          13. Crafter

                          • crafter

                              • Cons: Sometimes dealing with cranky customers, mailing, and returns can be a headache, so you can hire Amazon FBA to take care of this stress for you.

                                $5 - $200 depending on the item you sell

                            If you find it leisurely to craft when you have free time, you can easily turn it into a side business.

                            Here are some crafts that people enjoy selling:

                            • Printables

                            On Etsy or Amazon Handmade, you can sell your crafts with small service fees. Amazon Handmade also has Amazon FBA if you want someone else to take care of shipping or customer care issues. You can focus on your craft and let Amazon FBA deal with the rest.

                            14. Dance Instructor

                            • dance instructor
                              Dance Instructor
                                • Pros: You get paid to exercise!
                                • Cons: You have to pay a monthly subscription to keep your teaching license active.
                                • How Much You Can Make:

                                  $17/hour (national average)

                                • How to Begin:

                                  Attain the skills and certification to be a dance instructor and then apply for jobs.

                                • The Fun Part:

                                  If you love to dance, you don't have to pay money at a club. Instead, let people pay you to dance and meet people!

                              If you enjoy dancing and would love to teach it as a side job, you can get paid to do something you love so much. Modern, jazz, tap, and ballet are a few various forms of dancing you might love.

                              “You get to meet a variety of people so it’s great for your social life.” – Nikary Plaza who teaches Zumba at Crunch Fitness in Santa Clarita

                              The negative is that you don’t get paid for your practice hours, but if you consider that more work out time for yourself, then you might not mind.

                                  • Pros: You get to have fun and work with music and people.
                                  • Cons: You’re usually working evenings and weekends, but that’s what a side gig is. Start up can be expensive.
                                  • How Much You Can Make:

                                    $50 - $100 per hour (national average)

                                  • How to Begin:

                                    Buy your DJ equipment and learn to work it.

                                  • The Fun Part:

                                    People light up when they hear a song they love, and the joy of getting a crowd up on their feet and dancing with happiness is high.

                                Being a DJ can be an excellent side gig; you can bring in a lot of extra money. If you love music and working with people, you’ll have a lot of fun with this.

                                Buying DJ hardware and sound equipment can be expensive. You’ll have to invest in music; learn DJ skills like mixing, EQing, phrasing, and beatmatching.

                                If you want to gig at weddings, you should feel comfortable speaking into a microphone and hyping up a crowd.

                                You’ll usually be in charge of shipping all your equipment and setting up; while you’re hard at work, if you throw in a photo booth, you’ll make even more easy money.

                                  Dog Walker or Dog Sitter
                                    • Pros: If you love animals, you can earn money taking them along on a walk. If dog sitting, you can enjoy their company while you get other work done.
                                    • Cons: Dogs have their own personalities and some will destroy your property or fight with other dogs. Some dogs shed quite a large amount of fur.
                                    • How Much You Can Make:

                                      $17/hour

                                    • How to Begin:

                                      You can either start your own business or get hired by another company.

                                    • The Fun Part:

                                      You can keep winning with this job because it takes little effort and you get to love on some adorable furry ones while making money.

                                  If you love spending time with dogs, you can make extra money while you exercise or work from home.

                                  Dog owners pay to make sure their dogs are in good hands when they go on vacation or go to work. Many dog owners don’t have the energy or the capability to walk their dogs every day.

                                  You can spread your business through word of mouth. You can also list your service on neighborhood apps, Facebook neighborhood groups, Rover, or Wag.

                                  Be sure to meet your client and the dog before committing. You don’t want a dog who will destroy your property or who is stronger than you.

                                  You need to be able to control the dog on walks or you (and other people) can get injured. Also, some dogs will shed quite a bit, so you need to be a little relaxed with fur.

                                    If you enjoy helping people as a side gig, one of the most beneficial things you can do for your community is to donate plasma. You can help people with chronic health issues.

                                    The process usually takes a little bit longer than normal blood donation.

                                    You may experience these symptoms:

                                    • Pain from the needle site
                                    • General fatigue
                                    • Bruising
                                    • Dizziness

                                    Eat a healthy meal so you don’t get lightheaded.

                                    Be aware that you will probably get an initial blood test to check you for drug use or STDs. The positive side is you’ll get your health checked out at the same time.

                                      Perhaps you enjoy working alone and don’t want to deal with office drama. You also want to work during off hours. Delivering food is a good way to benefit from all of that.

                                      Pros

                                      • Usually customers give a nice tip.
                                      • During certain times, the companies offer bonuses.

                                      Cons

                                      • The companies do not help you with mileage

                                      19. Doula

                                          • Cons: Being a doula is not a 9 to 5 p.m. predictable job. You can be called in the middle of the night or in the middle of your child’s birthday party.
                                          • How Much You Can Make:

                                            $1,700 - $2,000 per birth (includes prenatal appointments to see if you’re a good fit with your patient)

                                          • How to Begin:

                                            Contact a school like Dona International and begin your training process.

                                          • The Fun Part:

                                            You get to witness the birth of a human!

                                        If you treasure the birthing process, you can get certified at places like Dona International, where they train doulas to work with the birthing mothers.

                                        You get business training, classes on lactation, and do a lot of reading and writing on subjects like postpartum depression. A doctor and midwife need to sign off on your certification.

                                        You would have prenatal appointments with your clients where you listen to their vision for birth and encourage their birth plan dreams.

                                        Sometimes women are in and out of labor in five hours, but other times, it takes women several hours to give birth.

                                        You can partner with another doula, so if two mothers give birth at the same time, you have a back up ready.

                                              You can enjoy nature.

                                          Every farm needs hands to help – whether it be picking fruit or milking cows. You might surprise them and know how to handle farm equipment and tractor trailers.

                                          Every farm needs to move their animals and fix fences. Being outdoors might be a joy for you; and how wonderful would it be to see the birth of a baby animal!

                                              • The Fun Part:

                                                You gain the satisfaction of monetizing the smaller moments of your day.

                                            If you want to maximize every minute of your free time in a monetary way, you can fill out surveys whenever you have some down time, like during a break from work.

                                            Companies pay you for your consumer opinion because they’re doing market research. This could range from giving your opinion on a product to stating your thoughts on a commercial.

                                            Begin by registering with an online survey provider. They’ll want to know your demographics and information.

                                            The more you fit the demographics they need, the more surveys you’ll receive. For instance, they’ll only send geriatric product surveys out to older people.

                                                “It’s great developing relationships with clients,” says Brooke Ciuffitelli from Evolve Hair and Nail Spa in Newhall, CA. “It’s a great creative outlet and you get to do what you love. People are happy to be there.”

                                                Listening skills are vital for being a hairstylist because you have to know exactly what your client wants done.

                                                You also have to be flexible with last minute changes in your clients’ schedules. Also, with the joys of running your own business comes the stress of running your own business.

                                                Get a license to practice in your state and renew it every few years.

                                                    • Cons: All the cons of running a private business come with being a handyman.

                                                    • How to Begin:

                                                      Learn the skills you need to be a qualified handyman.

                                                    • The Fun Part:

                                                      Your job changes from day to day so you never get bored, and so do the clientele.

                                                  If you naturally know how to fix broken drawers, install garbage disposal systems, and put chandeliers in ceilings, there’s a plethora of people who will pay you for your help.

                                                  Your natural contractor skills can also grow in vocational schools where you learn more about plumbing, electrical, and/or HVAC.

                                                  The cons of being a handyman are the same cons as anyone running a private business – e.g. you need to bill on your own and be your own secretary.

                                                      • Cons: If you house-sit a lot, you might have the same cons as businessmen who travel a lot – travel fatigue. Also, it is during the holidays and summer months that most housesitters are in demand, so you'll miss your own holidays and summer.

                                                          Start developing a following and make entertaining or informative content. Post regularly.

                                                        • The Fun Part:

                                                          It's fun being in the spotlight and trying new things.

                                                      Perhaps you don’t mind being in the spotlight. Perhaps it’s fun for you to share your thoughts on recipes or fashion with other people all over the world.

                                                      “It’s such an amazing and supportive community. And I get a creative outlet to share my recipes,” shares influencer Chef Rosie Godycki.

                                                      After you gain a good amount of followers by posting informative and entertaining content regularly; learn how algorithms work for social media and YouTube.

                                                      For instance, the best times to post are between 2 and 3 p.m. Other good times are Wednesdays 11 a.m. and Fridays 10 a.m. Short entertaining reels are great for creating engagement.

                                                      Controversy over your post can be one of the greatest blessings as it skyrockets your algorithm.

                                                          • Cons: Sometimes you have to sell products to your own clients when they have doubts about how it’s going to help them achieve their goal.

                                                            Begin helping to decorate your friends’ homes and see if you have a gift in interior decorating.

                                                          • The Fun Part:

                                                            Tap into your creative and artistic side and have fun beautifying someone's home!

                                                        Some people have a natural eye for beauty and know how to decorate a home in the most eye-catching way. If this is you, this will be an easy and fun side gig for you.

                                                        “The thrill of transforming dull, uninteresting spaces together with the client, into cohesive, beautiful rooms that reflect their personalities and values is what authentic designers strive for. From vision to reveal, the joy of the final product is priceless.” – Lori Manthei from Lori Manthei Design (Instagram and FB)

                                                        The negative part is you often have to act as a therapist or salesperson as you guide clients toward the end goal. Weeding out people who don’t trust you is key before getting yourself too involved.

                                                        Sometimes you also have to deal with flakey or egotistical sub-contractors, so building a strong team is essential.

                                                        It’s fun to decorate using other people’s money — you help to give birth to a dream that someone has and see the happiness they gain.

                                                            • Cons: Sometimes plans can fail due to no fault of your own, and you have to deal with unhappy guests.

                                                              Plan a tour route for your own city; apply for jobs with travel agents.

                                                            • The Fun Part:

                                                              Leading people and getting looked upon as the expert in your area is a highlight; and giving your guests a fun time is rewarding!

                                                          If you communicate clearly, have a warm personality, and have a natural bent towards providing hospitality, being a local tour guide will be an easy side gig for you.

                                                          You do need to be flexible and be able to solve problems; e.g. if the restaurant failed to make your reservations, you should always have a Plan B and be able to redirect your group with a cheerful attitude.

                                                          It helps if you’re an enthusiastic story teller. You need to be on your feet for most of the time; some tour guides have mastered the art of walking backwards.

                                                          Plan tour routes that will give your guests the proper amount of rest and meals; arrange your stops so that traffic will be the least cumbersome. Pre-buy tickets to events or museums.

                                                          If you extend your skills to going abroad, you might be able to visit different locations and earn your keep for free.

                                                                You can search job boards, put out an ad on social media or neighborhood apps, or get hired by a house cleaning company.

                                                                You can get exercise while you work and spend your time without office drama.

                                                            If you don’t mind vacuuming or mopping or cleaning showers, maid service might be a great side gig for you. Some people find it relaxing to work in a solo, quiet environment while getting exercise and movement in at the same time.

                                                            “A great pro is that they will work with your schedule as a student,” says Annie Miles who cleans homes as a side job.

                                                            If you become a full-time housekeeper for a private home or a hotel, you can even get a room for free. You can also get to exercise as you do your job.

                                                            A negative is if you have inconsiderate guests or bosses who don’t care about how much you have to clean up after them.

                                                                  The thrill of transforming someone from their blank canvas face to a stunning beauty on their special day is priceless.

                                                              If you are skilled at doing makeup, there are many people who would love to hire you for special events like prom, family portraits, weddings.

                                                              “It’s a great creative outlet. You can choose your hours and meet people.” – Caroline Allec, makeup artist and owner of Blush and Braids (Instagram)

                                                              However, if you’re doing a wedding, sometimes you have to reply to texts and calls early in the morning. There’s a lot of back and forth communication and having to adjust your schedule with clients.

                                                              College students studying cinematography might also want to hire you to do special effects makeup. Doing makeup for television, theater, or funeral homes can even turn into full-time jobs.

                                                              Begin by doing your own makeup and friends’ makeup and posting photos on social media. Once you get a portfolio started, you can promote your skill more easily.

                                                                Business owners usually want to spend their time running their business; so they’ll outsource their marketing to someone else.

                                                                A lot of people are skilled at making social media posts and reels, print advertising, or composing emails, while business owners aren’t.

                                                                Marketing is a wide field, so you can work in all the realms of TV, billboards, bus advertising, influencers, emails, social media, websites, colors/fonts, graphics, photo styles, and more.

                                                                You’ll want to pick a specific niche and stick with it.

                                                                      Start to research how to give a good massage and get one yourself!

                                                                    • The Fun Part:

                                                                  If you enjoy helping out people, as a masseuse, you help people relax and benefit their emotional and physical health.

                                                                  The job is rather intimate and your muscles will get taxed, as well as your fingers. You’re on your feet the whole time. Sometimes you can work really hard and only get a dissatisfied customer at the end.

                                                                  For pros, you can make your own schedule. Tips are also an extra nicety.

                                                                  Learn about giving massages from research and practicing on others. If you get certified, even more doors will open for you.

                                                                      • Cons: Finding good representation is difficult. (If an agent wants you pay them for photos or classes, it's a scam.) The workflow is “feast or famine”.
                                                                      • How Much You Can Make:

                                                                      • How to Begin:

                                                                        Reach out to reputable agents in your area; see if they do an open call or allow picture submissions via email.

                                                                      • The Fun Part:

                                                                        You get paid to look beautiful, and sometimes you have fun gigs like getting paid to play in the ocean waves!

                                                                    If you are not in the top 1%  to meet the physical criteria of being a model (5’9″ or 5’10” and less than 120 lbs.), consider being a different type of model: a hand or foot model, a hair model, or a fit model. Also if you’re proportionate, consider — plus size models are becoming in demand.

                                                                    Finding good representation can be tricky because most people get tricked into paying for classes or fake representation, while being fed false hopes that they can make it as a model. A real agent won’t make any money unless you’ve booked an actual job. 

                                                                    Ask reputable agents in your area if they do an open call or allow picture submissions. These pictures don’t need to be professionally done. If an agent wants you to pay them for photos or classes, then run; it’s a scam.

                                                                    The con is that modeling jobs are not steady. Also, depending on your personality, you might hate that you have to travel; or if you love to travel, that might be one of the best parts of the gig for you.

                                                                    “You can make a lot of money – $10K per day!” says former model Pam Hayashida.

                                                                    If you are doing runway modeling, you will need to change your clothes several times in front of people. The pace is so fast that you need to feel comfortable being in front of people in a strapless bra and thong.

                                                                    Your worth as a model can be determined by how attractive or photogenic you are. People might feel free to criticize your body or face. This can have a damaging effect on models if they can’t separate work from their own self worth.

                                                                        • Pros: If you have a passion for music and enjoy teaching, you can have a great time sharing your passion.
                                                                        • Cons: Sometimes you need to market yourself and deal with young children.
                                                                        • How Much You Can Make:

                                                                        • How to Begin:

                                                                          You can start by teaching a friend for free and see if you are a good teacher. After that, start to market yourself to friends, on social media, or get hired by music stores.

                                                                        • The Fun Part:

                                                                          You end up connecting with your students and seeing them thrive is an absolute joy.

                                                                      I started teaching piano this year, and I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable it was. There is always a shortage of piano teachers, so if you are skilled at teaching, then this might be a great side gig for you.

                                                                      First, research the best curriculum. All the professional piano teachers I knew loved teaching out of Piano Adventure books. Faber has worked to teach kids music systematically; it’s already mapped out well for you.

                                                                      Some music teachers don’t enjoy the aspect of marketing themselves to the public to get more students. They also don’t like dealing with young children. Sometimes parents come over and I have to tell them that their child is not ready to learn piano.

                                                                      Overall, it is a very satisfying job when you hear students expressing themselves beautifully through music.

                                                                      35. Notary Public

                                                                          • How Much You Can Make:

                                                                            Check with your state to find out their requirements.

                                                                          • The Fun Part:

                                                                        Becoming a notary public is generally an easy side-gig to make money part time. You’ll have to check with your state to find out their specific guidelines.

                                                                        General State Guidelines

                                                                        • Complete an application form
                                                                        • Pay your state filing fee
                                                                        • Buy notary supplies
                                                                        • Possibly get educational training

                                                                        The heart of a notary public is to be an impartial witness, and if you do this wrong, unfortunately, this can land you in court. Some states require a background check.

                                                                        You gain much more clientele if you’re willing to travel; however, meeting strangers in their homes might make you anxious, so if this is the case, arrange a way to meet them publicly.

                                                                              • How Much You Can Make:

                                                                            As a personal assistant, you need to screen phone calls, remind your client of people’s names, buy groceries, sometimes cook, write emails, or schedule appointments. You might have to travel with your client at times.

                                                                            Look on job boards for listings. If you want to be a virtual assistant, you would do all of this remotely – screening calls, setting appointments, working on social media content, proofreading, etc. You can work in several different industries at the same time!

                                                                                • The Fun Part:

                                                                              Do people often visit your home and rave at your cooking or baking? Perhaps you’ve always wanted to become a professional chef, but you didn’t like dealing with kitchen staff and the headache that it takes to run a restaurant.

                                                                              A personal chef takes care of their clients’ customary diet, shopping for them, organizing the kitchen, cooking for them, and cleaning up. Though it’s not necessary, you can join the United States Personal Chef Association and gain certification there.

                                                                              If you become a personal chef of someone with an extra room, you might be able to earn free room and board as well.

                                                                                  • Cons: If you work with the elderly, you will have to be patient.
                                                                                  • How Much You Can Make:

                                                                                  • How to Begin:

                                                                                    You can begin offering your services to friends and family and develop a resume.

                                                                                  • The Fun Part:

                                                                                    When you help the elderly or disabled who can't shop for themselves, it's rewarding.

                                                                                A personal shopper buys groceries and shops for their clients. If you’re great at predicting the needs of someone and you enjoy caring for other people, this might be a great side hustle for you.

                                                                                You can choose to shop for the elderly. Shopping for the elderly will usually send you going to the grocery store, the pharmacy, and managing their requests and budget. This requires patience.

                                                                                You can also become a personal shopper in the niche of fashion. There are a lot of people who want to keep their wardrobe up-to-date but don’t have the fashion knowledge or time to shop for clothes.

                                                                                Once you begin offering your services to friends and family and do a great job, word of mouth will begin to spread, and you can charge more per client.

                                                                                For more information and online sites to work for, read here.

                                                                                    • The Fun Part:

                                                                                  Some people struggle to lose weight unless they are motivated by a real live person. If you’re a person who naturally enjoys staying fit and inspiring other people, this is a great side gig for you.

                                                                                  It’s naturally rewarding because you get to see your clients meet their fitness goals.

                                                                                  The negative: if you help your client to achieve their goal and do your job right, they no longer need you. However, word of mouth should spread and you should gain more clients.

                                                                                  Another con is that this side job might get harder the older you get.

                                                                                  If you’re interested, start working with friends or inquire about jobs at your local gym.

                                                                                        You can help people who physically find it difficult to pick up poo and exercise while you make money.

                                                                                    Many people love their furry pets, but a lot of people don’t like going into the yard regularly to pick up their dog poo.

                                                                                    If they don’t pick up the dog poo, then their dog can step in their old poo and bring it into the house. Also, gardeners might end up running their mowers into their poop and spreading it in their backyard.

                                                                                    If you have a rake and a bucket to pick up in a yard, then people will pay you to come regularly and pick up after their dog.

                                                                                    Advertise on social media, especially with pet lovers; ask your local pet stores and vets if you could give flyers or cards out; put a flier up at your local dog park.

                                                                                        • Cons: Christmas time can be especially busy, trying to get everyone’s Christmas pictures edited and finished.

                                                                                        • How to Begin:

                                                                                          Buy a camera and learn how to work it well.

                                                                                        • The Fun Part:

                                                                                          It's fun to capture silly and endearing moments of your friends and their families.

                                                                                      One of the best side gigs for a stay-at-home mom is photography. You can shoot weddings, senior portraits, or family portraits and set your own hours. Your only limitation might be wanting natural light from the sun.

                                                                                      It will get busy especially during Christmas card season, when you need to edit the photos of your family and friends while also preparing for your own Christmas season.

                                                                                      You don’t have to limit yourself to taking pictures of friends and events. You can explore whatever field you enjoy: stars, nature, animals, city life, etc. You can sell your photography online.

                                                                                      First, buy a decent camera and learn how to work it; e.g. learn how to work aperture, shutter speed, and photo editing apps.

                                                                                      Offer your photography for free with friends – senior portraits or weddings – and then start to charge once you establish an online presence and gain inquiries.

                                                                                          • Cons: Sometimes people don’t maintain the system that you worked hard to implement.
                                                                                          • How Much You Can Make:

                                                                                            You can earn a CPO certification (Certified Professional Organizer certification), but it won’t be necessary if you’re skilled and adept at creating your own clientele.

                                                                                          • The Fun Part:

                                                                                        You keep an organized home; you might have even helped friends to get their clutter under control.

                                                                                        As a professional organizer, you can help people organize a system with short and long term organization goals, maximizing the space in their homes to its greatest efficiency.

                                                                                        Great people skills are necessary so you understand the priorities of how your clients want to organize their home; you also need to be able to communicate how to effectively achieve their goals in the coming years.

                                                                                        “You get to help people transform their homes and lives just from one session,” says Chantell Dennis of Simply Organized Company, “And as an added fun, I’ve been able to visit homes I never would have been able to before.”

                                                                                        It can cost quite a bit to get supplies, pretty containers, and baskets to organize a home. Though the hourly fee isn’t outrageous, usually clients get surprised by how much the supplies cost.

                                                                                        Your work can also be undervalued; sometimes people don’t maintain the organization that you’ve worked so hard to set up for them. But if these cons don’t dampen your joy of organizing, then don’t let them deter you!

                                                                                            To begin, you’ll need to invest in a quality microphone for your demos and sound quality. You’ll also have to find a corner in your house that is soundproof. You don’t want the noise of your dog or the air conditioning vent in the background.

                                                                                            Find a niche in the realm of books that you can become well-known in. Begin by looking up jobs on websites like Fiverr.

                                                                                                  When escrow closes, you will have helped friends find their future home, and in turn, you'll get a nice paycheck.

                                                                                              Perhaps you enjoy looking at properties and the different ways that people decorate. Being a real estate agent is a great side gig: you only have to take classes for 1 to 2 months and then pass an exam to get your real estate license.

                                                                                              “I love helping people find their dream home; it’s fun getting to know new people and listening to what they want. I like to negotiate; I’m there to help my clients and give them the very best service.“ – Denise Furmidge, real estate agent.

                                                                                              The negative is that you always have to answer the phone, even when you’re on vacation. The positive is that you get to help people that you grow to care for.

                                                                                              Clients can also get very emotional when transactions fall apart, such as when an inspector finds things wrong with the house like termites, mold, or roof issues or when appraisals are below asking price.

                                                                                              On top of that, you have to maintain your image all the time without breaks to get new clients. But if you love doing real estate, it’s still an enjoyable gig for you. It is quite lucrative when everything goes right!

                                                                                                  • The Fun Part:

You simply have to make sure your plants can breathe while shipped, so don’t bubble wrap them too tightly.

                                                                                                      If you have a garden and an expertise in orchids, succulents, carnivorous plants, or other types of plants, you have all you need to start your business.

Waitressing is an excellent night shift to add on after a day of sitting at a desk.

You walk a lot so it’s good exercise. It’s usually very easy to either pick up shifts or get shifts covered if something comes up.” – Shayna Bray, former waitress at Salt Creek Restaurant in Santa Clarita, California

                                                                                                          However, it can be tiring because you are on your feet the whole time. Sometimes you are working until late at night. Carrying heavy plates and trays can be hard on your back as well. Be sure to buy supportive shoes.

                                                                                                          After you get hired at a restaurant, you get trained to memorize the menu and their ingredients and learn to work the computers.

If you are looking for short term gains, you have to watch constantly. You can’t take time off; if you day trade, you need to watch patterns and research all the while, even if you don’t trade anything on that specific day.

It was risky and luckily, it sky-rocketed. If you want to do long-term investments, you can set it and forget it for 8-10 years. However, you might want to wait until the economy is a little better before beginning your journey.” – homeschool mother Esther Kyong who dabbles in day trade

The tricky part is that you will have to learn some difficult terms to translate effectively, especially in a hospital.

                                                                                                                          Market yourself as a contractor and let your local spots know you’re available.

                                                                                                                            Be careful to take into account if the curriculum will be given to you or if you need to develop your own curriculum, which will take a great deal longer.

                                                                                                                            Also, will you be correcting assignments? Do the parents want the child to receive homework? Be aware that every extra hour that you spend on these items will cut into your hourly wage.

                                                                                                                            However, there is great joy when you are able to teach someone something successfully and see them improve.

                                                                                                                            I began tutoring this year. I gave an hourly rate and added $10/hour for each additional child.

                                                                                                                            The moms were incentivized to get their children’s friends in the class because it brought down the cost per child, the kids were happier with friends, and I got paid more for my hour with group classes.

                                                                                                                            The best part is seeing the kids excited to learn and improve.

You also gain residuals and get to play different roles. And since you don’t have to be on camera, there’s less pressure. You can even work from home if you have a home studio.” – voice actor Caleb Jeon’s mother

                                                                                                                                  However, you do have to audition to book the job. For many actors, it takes several tries before they book anything. You also have to work on short notice and sometimes have to drop everything and be at the studio immediately.

                                                                                                                                  Though a USB microphone is good enough, an XLR microphone is even better for the gig. Find a place to record your material that is soundproof; you don’t want to hear a noisy fan or the family chattering in the background.
