I get the need, the passion to launch a side hustle. I’m right there with you! I’m all about side hustles. After all, for many of us, this is how us busy entrepreneurs first get started building our empires.
If you’ve been searching for some ideas, surely you’ve come across a lot of posts with a long laundry list of survey taking sites. I’m not saying that the whole survey taking thing isn’t for some folks but man am I sick of seeing them all over the place. There are other things, more creative and fun things, out there! So I’ve rounded up my favorite ten for you to check out.
Become a Compassionate Entrepreneur.
Build a business by empowering others. As a Compassionate Entrepreneur with Trades of Hope, you will be helping to empower women out of poverty while earning an income. Learn more about the opportunity here.
Build and Sell Enrollment to Online Courses and Workshops.
You can get started for free and start making a passive income. With Thinkific, you can build your platform and add your courses. This is a great way to capitalize on something you are an expert on. It can be anything from personal development courses to business courses and everything in between.
Sell the clothes and accessories you no longer wear.
We all have them. Those clothes hanging in the closet that we haven’t worn in years. Clean out your closet and drawers and cash out. Poshmark lets you post your pictures and items easily with their smartphone app. And with sites like Swap.com and ThredUp you can send your clothes in and they’ll post and sell them for you.
Become a Stella & Dot Stylist.
Start a blog.
It’s no secret that you can make money blogging. Does it take some work – yes, it does. But it can be rewarding and it can be a great place to start getting to know your audience and build your followers. If you want to monetize your blog, first step is to get it self-hosted. Then you can add ads and join affiliate programs through places such as Shareasale.
Open an online shop to sell your designs on shirts and more.
Spreadshop is super easy to work with and open your shop. Build your shop using their templates. Create some designs and then upload to their design center and pick your products to offer. There is no cost to join and because it’s print on demand there’s no stock for you to handle either.
Offer freelance services.
Are you a graphic design wizard? Marketing guru? Or make videos, do voice overs? Fiverr will help you market your skills. This is such an awesome platform to find freelance opportunities.
Set yourself up as a Young Living Essential Oils Consultant.

Make money as a Social Media Influencer.
Marketing has changed in our world and that leaves a lot of companies looking for new ways to connect with potential customers. Social media influencers has become a huge part of the marketing world. Companies are looking for individuals that can make an impression and help connect their products and services to consumers. Start with Glambassador where they can connect you with businesses looking for you!
What’s awesome about these side hustles is that you can choose and determine how much energy and time you want to dedicate to it. You can make these work for you, and for your schedule.
