In this article, I’m going to talk about some side hustles in 2019 that you can start doing today for extra income.
This article is a bit different from the usual articles on Flipping Income. The list of side hustles includes earning opportunities that exist for those who want to utilize their creativity and time – without any upfront costs.
So without delay, let’s get to it!
By now most of you reading this have either heard or have used ride-sharing services such as Lyft and Uber. These are well-established companies that have drivers and riders in almost every city and even in other countries.
If you have a working car and you have some spare time on your hands, why not utilize both to make some extra money? In fact, this is what some people do as a full-time job and can be very lucrative especially around larger cities with sporting events/concerts, and during holidays and after-hours.
Even though both companies offer insurance for your passengers and your ride, you are still responsible for keeping up with maintenance and cleanliness of the ride.
- Lyft ($1600 first month guarantee after 165 rides)
- Uber ($550 first month guarantee after 100 rides)
If driving around strangers is not your thing, how about food instead? Delivery service is very hot in 2019 and you can utilize your car and your time delivering food from your local restaurants. There are a few companies in this space.
On top of what you make from each delivery, you get to keep all the tips too.
Rent / Hosting
Just like riding sharing, home sharing is just as hot. Across cities, there are tons of homes, studios, apartments or rooms for rent or hosting. You can too.
This is especially true if you live close to a venue or within the city.
Take a look at this article where an owner listed his van as an apartment in NYC!
Create an Online Course
Do you have a specialized skill that others can benefit from? Rather than teach 1 on 1, why not create an online course where thousands can attend?
The more value you can bring, the more you will attract. And the best part is, you can do a series of courses with varying difficulty.
Online courses are considered passive income. Meaning once they get rolling and the money starts flowing, all you have to do is sit back and reap the rewards. Well maybe update the course every so often. 🙂
Many companies are interested in the opinions of their customers and are willing to pay. That’s why you will find an astounding amount of sites where you can fill out surveys for cash.
One of the most well-known survey sites is Survey Junkie.
Tip: Surveys are directed toward a specific demographic. When registering with a survey site, you will need to fill in a lot of personal information about yourself. Depending on your age, profession, and where you live you may be invited to complete a lot of surveys or only a few.
Publish an eBook
Love to write? These days anyone can publish an eBook that can reach millions of readers within a very short amount of time. How?
By utilizing Amazon’s Kindle platform, you get the marketing power of Amazon for zero upfront cost. This allows just about anyone to publish their own works.
eBooks vary in word count, so you can write an eBook with only 500 words or one with 50,000 words. It is completely up to you. eBooks are also considered passive income.
Tip: check Amazon to get ideas of what to write about.
If you have talent and you want small jobs to work on that can completed within a few hours or a few days, you should take a look at the micro jobs out there. Best of all, you never have to leave your home.
Micro jobs include making a logo, proofreading, creating social media accounts, etc…
Take a look at the micro jobs available on Fiverr. You never know what you can do and get paid for it.
Become a YouTuber
This is perfectly suited for people with skill, with personality and perseverance. Just like how anyone can create a website or blog, anyone can create a YouTube channel. The problem is 99% of the people who create a channel give up within the first 6 months.
Becoming a YouTube can lead to great passive income or become a full-time job. Best of all, your videos can feature virtually any topic. How-tos, comedy, news, reviews, etc…
I personally operate a channel with over 50,000 subscribers and growing two others.
Shame on me if I didn’t mention flipping as a side hustle!
You can literally flip anything for extra cash. This includes books that are lying around, items you can pick up on Craigslist, used cars, and there are retail arbitrage opportunities everywhere from Dollar Stores, eBay, and Amazon.
