10 Side Hustles of 2021

Want to make a little extra money? Here are 10 side hustles you can start at any time:

Selling your old stuff online.
Whether it is clothing sitting in the back of your closet or furniture collecting dust, you can sell almost any used item online. Given the numerous platforms, such as eBay, Poshmark, or Craigslist, there is a massive market for used items like clothing, collectibles, furniture, etc. It is an easy way to make money if you are in a bind!

Sell your skills or services online.
Writing, graphic design, voice-overs, fashion design, you name it! If there is a market for you, then you can sell it. Best of all, there is a market for everything online. You can sell your skills by creating an online course or selling it as a service to offer your skills to those who may need them. In addition, platforms like Fiverr, Etsy, or Udemy can help you leverage some of your skills to create a healthy income.

Drive for Uber or Lyft.
If you have a license, a clean driving record, and an operating vehicle, you are more than qualified to sign up as an Uber or Lyft driver. You can set your hours to work at any time of the day with a click of a button.

Deliver food.
If you want to make money with your car, but you do not want the responsibility of chauffeuring others, you can sign up to be a food delivery driver for Uber Eats or Postmates. Like Uber and Lyft, you can set your hours when you want to work.

YouTube Tutorials
Online tutorial is not the fastest way to make an income. However, if you consistently deliver engaging content that keeps viewers interested, you can sell ad placements that will help you earn a respectable income.

Start a blog.
Like YouTube tutorials, blogging is also a long-term commitment. However, if you consistently post engaging and valuable content, you will set yourself up with a platform that earns you a tremendous amount of passive income.

Teach a language.
If you are well-versed in a second language, you can teach it to others. The best perk of it all is teaching English as a second language in other countries. In addition, you get to travel the world and get paid.

Cleaning services.
Starting a cleaning service is an easy way to make money in your neighborhood. Whether it is washing cars or cleaning someone’s home, establishing a cleaning service requires very little equipment or experience. Post on social media or go door to door and share your services. You will get customers in no time.

Housesitting or babysitting.
Here is another local-friendly option. If you want to make money in your neighborhood, but you don’t want to offer a cleaning service, then house sitting and babysitting are great alternatives.

Become a dog walker.
If you love animals, this is an excellent option for you. Typically, people who work long hours do not have much time during the week to walk their pets. Set an hourly rate and offer your service locally. You can even walk more than one dog at a time, which will double (or even triple) your salary.
