Having a little extra cash or a secondary source of income is never a bad thing! If you have the time and capacity, picking up a side hustle may be something to consider. Here are a couple ways to make some extra money while still working a full-time job.
Many hobbies and skills are marketable. Whether it’s photography, lawn care, web design or any other skills you may have, freelancing can be one of the best ways to earn extra cash. It can be very flexible as you can set your own rates, choose who you work with, and decide which projects you want to take on. There are many online platforms to get started like Upwork or Freelancer, or there may already be a local need in your community!
For those who are tech savvy, there are many extra income opportunities online. Joining focus groups, proofreading, or taking online surveys can be stress-free, easy ways to earn extra, even if you don’t have a fine-tuned skillset. Many of these jobs require no experience and can be done outside normal working hours whenever you have time.
If you have teaching experience or excel in a particular subject, you can make money by tutoring others. Websites like Studypool can connect you with students, or you can do it the old-fashioned way with people in your community. Since most students are in school during the work day, tutoring is a great way to make extra money without interfering with your day job.
Getting a part- time job is another great way to make money after work. Find a job that operates after traditional business hours and most places will be flexible with schedules if you communicate about your full-time job. Bartending or waitressing can be great part-time jobs. There are hours available after the business day, you get to meet a lot of people, and the opportunity to earn tips on top of your hourly wage means there is a high earning potential.
