Many employed people still can’t make ends meet with a full time job. This is the reason why some of them sign up for side jobs or self-employment activities during their free time that earn them extra cash. Some of these side jobs are already set up and let you work your own hours to make extra coin after work or school.
When it comes to side hustling, there are plenty out of the box ways to work at your comfort and on your own time. Here are a few popular side hustles that might favor an employee during his/her free time:
1. Work as an Uber driver
Uber offers a platform where a client can get a taxi just by requesting a ride from an app, and a driver will get this request on the same app. To work as an Uber driver all you need is a running car to make money during your off hours.
2. Food delivery services
Another great way to make money on the side is by delivering food through a service like Grubhub, Skip the Dishes, or Uber Eats. You can make great coin running pizza and other food deliveries over lunch, on weeknights, or weekends.
3. Grocery delivery
Many people never get the time in between work and family time to buy groceries and other essentials. This is why grocery and retail delivery offers a good opportunity for those that might have some extra time to themselves. It creates convenience to both the customer and the retailer. The shopper simply creates a grocery list online, pays, and scheduled delivery. The driver sometimes shops for the items, or just picks up the packed grocery bags for delivery.
If you live in an urban city where travellers are always looking for cheap places to stay, you might offer them an alternative to expensive hotels and motels, by offering your house up for rent on Airbnb. If you have a guest room that you don’t normally, this offers a great opportunity earn you some extra cash and meet interesting new people.
