That can earn you a solid second, third, or fourth income…

Enough money is really never enough money. If you’re like me, you can’t ever have enough of anything. Money being uno numero. But what if you’re already locked into a full-time job and don’t have the extra hours to start a new business or the cash? Luckily for us, we live in a time in age where everything is being created for the convenience of a lifestyle by design. It is getting easier and easier to supplement your primary income. Also, if you want a great plan to start a new business, come up with an idea that genuinely makes life more convenient and you probably found a winner. Now if I could only come up with that winning idea…?

In the meanwhile let’s dive into the 3tried and true side-hustles that will buy you more beer for your party or maybe a down payment on a home. Whatever the reason, a little extra cash in today’s economy can’t hurt. Side-note, numbers 1 & 3 could be the best options during the national lockdown to help supplement the lack of work so many of us are experiencing right now.

Woof Woof

That’s right pull out the lint rollers because things are about to get hairy! Looking through some of the top national Dog walking/ sitting apps, “Rover” came in with average earnings of $15-$26 an hour with the potential to earn 2X for keeping the fury ones overnight. After setting up your account you’ll run everything through the Rover App. This is great because they do the marketing and the clients come to the app to pick the best fit, so make sure to build a striking profile and work on getting those reviews! Honestly, though I put this at number 1 because I believe you could double your income by having the Pets in your home while doing your primary job (if you work from home) or maybe another Side-Hustle. Which leads me to number 2.

Tip Tap Type

No, don’t worry I am not about to tell you to start a blog. Believe me, I’m just as tired of hearing that option as much as you are. Especially, if you’re reading this then you are well aware of Medium and being able to get paid to write. No, this is straight-up typing, putting in Data, no thrills about it, you are typing your fingers away earning a side-income. There are a couple of options when it comes to doing this, you can sign-up for “Lionbridge the Smart Crowd”, where you submit your application and a little background info on yourself. After that, you wait for Lionbridge to connect you with one of their providers, which usually involves inputting data for a set earning per gig (Ex. $0.20-$0.60 per 1,000 keystrokes). Or you can grease those elbows and put a little more effort into it by creating a Fiverr account. Which then you can create a profile detailing your set skill, for example, inputting data. The great thing about Fiverr is that you set your price. As you can see, this could easily be added to number 1 while petsitting and doubling your side income. Create a safe space for the pets and get typing!

Car Market

Okay, I really tried to find the laziest way to earn a side-income, that still produced more than a few pennies a month. So how does earning up to $400 a month sound? Well if you fall in the 85% of Americans driving to work every day, then it couldn’t hurt to get paid doing what you are already doing. At the least, it could help pay your gas bill! Free Car Media will turn your car into a driving billboard. There are a few different options upon signing up. It could be a modest window decal or an entire car wrap, assuming the more logo, the more bucks. Not a bad option if you are willing to eat humble pie to market a company’s logo on your car.

All three of these options can help to start building your bank account and best of all can be performed around your primary work hours! So if you have a phone with a signal, there are absolutely zero reasons why you can’t be earning money on the side. These are just three options of thousands. Find what’s works for you, stick with it, and I am confident you will reach your income goals!

Make sure if you try this, to let me know how it worked for you??
