10 Side Hustles You Can Do While Working Full-Time

1. Facebook Ad Manager

Are you a supporter of small businesses and want them to make more money? If so, you could greatly help out a local business by working as their Facebook Ad Manager. Most businesses don’t know how to use Facebook ads to their benefit. That’s where you come in.

A Facebook Ad Manager is in charge of driving new customers, leads, and money to a local business. Think about it this way: A local business can spend $1,000 in ads and potentially get $5,000+ from these Facebook ads that you created. 

That’s why hiring a Facebook Ad Manager is a no brainer. And with 30,000,000 businesses in the United States alone, there is so much work to be done. This side hustle easily has the potential to become a full-time job and make $50,000 a year. Some Facebook Ad Managers report earning $100,000+ a year. I interviewed Robert, a Facebook Ad Manager and he earns $60,000 a year with his side hustle. That’s a lot of money for a remote job that doesn’t require 4 years of school.

Steps for success:

  1. Sign up for the Facebook Side Hustle Course. This course teaches you everything you need to know. No qualifications needed. 
  2. Follow the step-by-step plan for earning $1,000-$2,000 a month running Facebook ads. Give it your 100%. 
  3. Get more clients until you hit the income you want to make each month.

2. Make dog treats at home

Did you know you can make $1,000+ a month part-time working at home with a dog treat business? You can even make $5,000-$8,000 from your home kitchen if you do it full-time. You can get your kids involved, work from home, create your own schedule, and make treats for dogs. I don’t think it gets better than that. 

My friend Kristin runs a successful dog treat business from home and perfected the craft of selling dog treats. She even teaches others how to replicate her success in her course Diva Dog Bakery. However, I know you have a ton of questions about this and want to learn more before signing up for a course. That’s why Kristin offers a completely FREE workshop to answer all of your questions. Have more questions that aren’t covered in the workshop? You can contact Kristin via email. Get her free workshop here and see if this side hustle is for you.

3. Start a blog

I couldn’t create this post without mentioning starting a blog. Blogging is my full-time job and it was the driving factor for being debt-free and maxing out my 401(k) and Roth IRA every year. 

A blog can be about anything you want it to be, but do your best to start a blog on a topic that makes money. Topics that make money are: personal finance, health and fitness, food and recipes, fashion, home decor and DIY, personal development and self care, and many others.
