1. Freelance writing
I had no idea what freelance writing was (or that you could make money from it) until I met my friend Holly. I was even more shocked to see how much she makes as a freelance writer.
Holly makes six-figures with her freelance writing career; $225,000 a year to be exact.
There are hundreds of freelance writing jobs out there, but getting those freelance jobs isn’t easy, which is why Holly created Earn More Writing.
I used Earn More Writing to help me get started in the freelance writer field, which helped me land on sites like GoBankingRates and many others. I went from charging $50 to $250 per article and now, I know I can charge much more than that with my writing experience.
This work from home opportunity is legit, lucrative, and lets you work anywhere in the world. Holly travels (a ton!) and works all around the world.
In her free workshop, she shares her techniques she’s used to make six-figures freelance writing.
2. Teach English with Gogokid
Teaching English online is a great way to make income at home, while on your schedule.
You’re also helping people learn English, which gives them the ability to talk to over 1.5 billion people around the world.
That’s pretty amazing when you think about it!
Gogokid pays up to $25 an hour and also has a limited time bonus of $300 for new teachers.
3. Start a blog
I created this blog and made over $80,000 in my senior year of college (that’s me in my first major feature by Forbes!).
Blogging isn’t easy and takes a lot of hard work. It’s not for everyone. I had to work for free for a long time to build this business from the ground up. If you feel that you can help people with a blog and inspire others to live better lives, a blog is a great way to do that. I make money with ad revenue, affiliate marketing, sponsored posts, and selling my own digital products.
If your dream is to become a full-time blogger and start a blog, I recommend starting a blog with Bluehost. Bluehost has 24/7 support, a money-back guarantee, and makes it as easy as possible to start a blog.
Start a blog today for just $2.95/month with my step-by-step tutorial here. It’s easy, painless, and takes less than 20 minutes to start a blog of your own. With my link, you get a discount from $7.99/month to $2.95/month.

4. Customer Service Representative
Customer service representatives are the go-between for customers and companies and may process orders, field complaints, or more.
What you do as a customer service representative will depend on the company you work for.
At FlexJobs, there are hundreds of new jobs being posted for customer service representatives.
These jobs are almost always entry-level, which means you don’t need any experience to get started.
5. Teaching English with EF Education
EF Education is an online platform where Chinese students connect with online English teachers.
As an online English teacher, you can make up to $20/hour plus bonuses. Perks include working remotely, setting your own schedule, and working at a job where employees feel happy and fulfilled with their work.
6. Sell on Amazon
There are more than 100,000,000 (yes, million) Amazon Prime members. More than 50% of all Amazon sales come from third-party sellers.
Selling on Amazon is a legit way to make great money and isn’t going away any time soon. And if you’re completely lost on how to even get started selling on Amazon, bear with me for a sec.
My friend Jessica and her husband have perfected the art of selling on Amazon and have made well over $100,000 profit (their first year in the biz). Now, they make much more than that.
Jessica even has a FREE 7-day course that tells you everything you need to know in a simplified way to get started selling on Amazon. This side hustle (or full-time job) isn’t going anywhere as Amazon selling has only touched the surface of what’s possible.
8. Sell Etsy Printables
Julie from the blog Millennial Boss is killin’ it in the side hustle world by selling Etsy printables.
This side hustle is almost entirely passive, meaning you do the work in one sitting, and then get paid for it for months and years to come. With just a few hours of work, Julie’s made over $5,000 selling printables on Etsy.
Julie recently created Etsy Printables where she shows you exactly how to make money selling Etsy Printables. I’ve gone through it myself and plan on adding this as a side hustle myself because it’s one of the easiest ways to make passive income.
Are you wondering how to get started selling Etsy printables? This free guide here has a secret list of best-selling products by month and how to capitalize on seasonal trends to make sales. It’s a free download and SO good!
I did an AMAZING interview with Julie that you can check out here. She shares pictures of her printables, revenue dashboard, and exactly how you can get started.
10. Teaching a foreign language
If you know a foreign language, you can use italki to teach from the comfort of your home.
If you want to learn a foreign language, italki is the place to go.
Filling out surveys to make money is an easy way to make money by simply providing your opinion to questions.
I genuinely enjoy surveys because I love sharing my opinion on things. I’ve always been into taking surveys, so naturally, I love this method of making some extra cash.
Here are a few of my favorite surveys:
- Swagbucks ($5 bonus for signing up)
- Opinion Outpost
- Survey Junkie
- MyPoints ($5 bonus after 5 surveys)
- Springboard America

13. Virtual Assistant
So many people ask me how to get started in this field, which is why I recommend $10KVA.
$10KVA teaches you exactly how to find your first client (and second, third, so on), how to set up your rates, and teaches you how to make $10,000 a month with virtual assisting. $10KVA simplifies the process of becoming a virtual assistant.
With businesses going online, this career space is going to grow exponentially.
You can learn more about $10KVA here – it’s amazing.
14. Affiliate marketing
Are you always telling your friends or family about products you love?
Maybe they even end up buying those products.
This is called affiliate marketing. Bloggers often use affiliate marketing on their websites to increase their blog revenue.
You work with an affiliate manager to create product reviews and add links to your blog that result in revenue when one of your readers purchases the product through your link.
The blogger will then earn a commission at no cost to your readers. Affiliate marketing sounds intimidating to some, but it doesn’t have to be.
With the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course, influencers can learn how to naturally generate affiliate income every month.
15. Donating blood or plasma
A local plasma center offers students of Texas State University over $50 per donation.
Donating takes about 1 hour. To find a local plasma center near you, all you have to do is type in your city and plasma center. So for me, I would type in, “Austin TX plasma center.”
Make sure to do your research.
CPL Plasma is one of the most popular plasma centers. Type in your zipcode here to see if there’s a center near you.
