Side hustles for extra cash

A couple years ago I worked for a promo company here in Manhattan (but it had jobs available everywhere).  You’d sign up via text or email and get paid like 20$/HR to wear a red bull t shirt or something & chat with people.

One holiday season they had an opening to sell perfume at Express & we got cash prizes based on our sales.

Do you wait tables?  This was always my back up

Essential oils and lu la roe are popular and in demand in case you do consider becoming a distributor for something. Otherwise I opened up my own Etsy shop and do sewing crafts. Crochet is easy to learn and you can sell on local Facebook swap sites. I guess you could narrow down some ideas based on your interests and hobbies and go from there.

How about doing respite/baby sitting in your home or at others peoples homes? Or working at group homes for kids? Something that you have experience with.

I worked for an in-home care service for awhile. It was mostly just doing basic chores around the house, reminding them to take thier pills, taking them to appointments, and keeping them company.

I set my own hours and had control of how many hours I could do each week. It was a great side job. It was low-stress and usually a pleasant way to spend a few hours. And I met some really great people.

I’m actually doing both online tutoring and private yoga lessons for people. I get to make my own schedule and it’s a nice little chunk of cash I can save for our honeymoon.

soon2behb :  I work in a stall at a market on weekends which I love.  It’s good money and different enough to my desk job that I still feel like I’m having a weekend.

Often people at markets need a little bit of help on the weekends, these positions are rarely advertised, if you are interested, ask around in your network or go down to a market and ask all the stall holders if they need any staff.

Get a job with one of the big tutoring companies like Princeton review. It may pay a bit less but they find the students and provide the materials. Easy money if you don’t mind standardized testing!

I have a teacher friend that raves about VIPKID. From what i understand, it’s an online tutoring program i THINK for ESL kids. She’s really happy with the income she generates from it.

I have an Etsy shop that does pretty decent but it’s definitely a lot of work to get it up and running. In the past, i’ve bartended on weekends but don’t have the energy or patience for that anymore lol
