Are you ready to start your own business and be your own boss without quitting your day job? A side hustle is a great way to test something out without going all in, and you can get a feel for if it’s something you would like to truly pursue.
I have a list of some great side hustle ideas for you, and if you’re trying to decide between a few options, pick something that already interests you. It’s hard to keep a business going on any level if you’re just not that interested or invested.
When it comes down to being an entrepreneur, you really have to love what you do, because you’re going to be spending every free ounce of time, energy, and attention on it.
The best part is, you can start any of the following side hustles with as little as $100!
Do You Like Making Things By Hand?
With websites out there like Etsy, it’s never been easier to build yourself a little (or big) business making things by hand. Maybe you love making jewelry.
Maybe it’s beauty products or soap, or maybe you’re an excellent sewer and can come up with some neat things to sell.
Etsy isn’t the only website you can get your handmade products on, either. Amazon has a pretty new section for handmade products!
Are You A Super Speller?
If you’re into spelling and grammar, you could start a side hustle as a proof-reader or editor. There are a ton of people online looking for someone to help them with this. Anyone from grad students to authors need proof-readers or editors.
Head on over to freelance websites to find these types of jobs, or post that you’re available as an editor or proofreader on Craigslist.
Are You Talented In The Kitchen?
Personal chefs used to be a pretty elite thing that only the wealthy could afford, but these days that’s just not the case.
These days, people of all incomes are signing up for meal delivery services in an effort to eat more healthfully or lose weight.
If you’re talented in the kitchen, cooking for people in their own homes or starting a meal delivery service could be a great option for you.
The only thing to point out here is that depending on where you live, there might be city or state laws that require you to use a commercial kitchen. That might sound expensive, but there are commercial kitchens out there that you can rent for certain days of the week!
Do You Love Animals?
If you love animals, pet sitting and dog walking are a no-brainer. I always struggle to find someone reliable to stay with my animals when I’m away, and there’s a huge need for it.
And this need is not just in major cities!
Can You Build Websites?
If you can build websites, there are a slew of people in need of your services. Anything from keeping websites updated to building them out entirely can definitely keep you busy.
You would be surprised at how many people simply don’t know how to do this but need the help!
Do You Enjoy Writing?
If you have a way with words, you should consider being a freelance writer. Most blogs on the internet pay for content, and there are still print magazines that do too.
If you enjoy writing, writing articles for other companies or people is a great way to make some extra money!
