1. Sell printables on Etsy

Selling printables is my favorite side hustle on this list because it’s almost entirely passive income, 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, my friend Julie has made over $5,000 selling printables. She loves this side hustle and recommends it to anyone who is short on time, wants extra money, and wants to work from home. 

Are you wondering how to get started selling Etsy printables? Julie even made a free guide which includes 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 selling printables.

Below is an example of one her printables that took off and is a hot sell on Etsy.

She created a few printables in the bachelorette niche and saw her side hustle take off. With just a few hours work, she’s made thousands over the course of a two years.

Julie recently created a course called E-Printables where she shows you exactly how to make money selling printables online. I’ve gone through the course myself and plan on adding this as a side hustle myself because it’s one of the easiest ways to make passive income.

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. 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. Blogs make money from ad revenue, affiliate marketing, sponsored posts, and selling digital products.

4. Facebook Ad Manager

Did you know you can become a Facebook Ad Manager for businesses and make an extra $1,000+ a month with just 1 client? Facebook Ad Managers are in charge of running ads for businesses to increase their customer base and income.

There are over 27 million businesses in the U.S. with over 500,000 new businesses starting every month. Out of 27 million businesses, all you need is 1-2 clients to make $1,000 a month.

If you want to go all in on this side hustle, you can take on 5 clients, which can be roughly $5,000 a month. Many Facebook Ad Managers take on 10 clients a month, which can be roughly $10,000 a month.

You can learn how to become a Facebook Ads Manager in less than 28 days with the Facebook Side Hustle Course. Over 1,500 students have taken the course. Here are 15 video testimonials from real students.

5. 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. You can check out her course and free workshop here. 

6. Sell on Amazon FBA

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.

Not sure what Amazon FBA even means? An Amazon FBA business is an online store, but in this case, Amazon handles a lot of the stuff that causes headaches for most e-commerce store owners. “FBA” stands for “Fulfillment by Amazon.”

So you find the inventory, while Amazon stores the product for you, packs and ships it, and handles customer service. Amazon then keeps a portion of the sales as a commission & service fee. And like I mentioned earlier, my friends earned over $100,000 from reselling items via Amazon FBA.

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 course that tells you everything you need to know in a simplified way to get started selling on Amazon.

7. Virtual Assistant

Aside from this blog, I’m a virtual assistant, and it’s been a life changing experience – here’s why.

I’m a virtual assistant for a 7 figure business, which allows me to see how a successful, profitable business works. Not only that, I get paid very well for assisting the business owner. 

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.

8. Professional Proofreader

Transform your passion for words and reading by becoming a professional proofreader, and help people like me who are terrible at proofreading.

I hire a proofreader for special projects which has been a must in my business. Proofreaders are a must for books, magazines, websites, and tons of other projects, so they’re always in demand.

Proofreaders can earn between $17-$30 per hour and offers competitive pay and flexible hours while working from home.

Here is a free workshop that will show you if proofreading is right for you. You’ll learn the five signs if proofreading is right for you (it’s not for everyone). I personally have a friend who is a freelance proofreader and she gets to work completely from home.

9. Sell digital stickers on Etsy

Another great side hustle related to Etsy is selling digital planners and stickers. My friend Michelle sells digital planners and stickers on Etsy. She made over $700 her first month in profit. In her second month, she made over $1,000 in profit. 

She even created an affordable course teaching others how to do the same, which you can check out here. You don’t need to have any prior skills nor a background in drawing, no special software, and anyone can do this. This is a great side hustle for people looking to make some extra money every month who are short on time.

I love side hustles like this because you put in a few hours of work, upload your digital products to Etsy, and then earn extra money for months to come. You can check out the Digital Stickers Course here.

10. Instacart

Instacart is a great side hustle for people looking into making extra money. I’m sure you’ve seen Instacart shoppers picking up groceries at the store. They’re usually in a bright green shirt with green Instacart bags in their hands.
 
What’s great about Instacart is you don’t even need a car. As an in-store shopper, you take shop orders only. If you want to make a little extra money, you can sign up to be a full-service shopper, whose job is to shop and deliver orders. 
 

11. Bookkeeper

A bookkeeper’s job is to keep records of financial transactions of a business. Bookkeepers can make between $30,000-$60,000 per year. Becoming a bookkeeper has several benefits, such as low startup costs, high profit, and ability to work remotely.

    Great list Alexis! I am an introvert and prefer my alone time but everyone should know that if you really want to be successful in any type of job, there will be human interaction. It’s great to find comfortable job but you also need to step out of your comfort zone, it’s all in the balance.

    1. Alexis

      I am, too. I love working from home but I do miss human interaction (sometimes) haha.

  2. Lila

    Another good one is commercial artist or commercial illustrator. The art industry has totally been transformed by social media and so many opportunities now have opened up to artists and illustrators thanks to the digital age.

    You just have to be really good at marketing your art. I know artists and illustrators making $80k+. You get to work from your home office, and you might have an art director or private client to email with, its similar to freelance writing or freelance graphic design work.

    1. Alexis

      That’s amazing! It’s nice to hear that there are jobs opening up for artists because it didn’t seem like a lucrative job in the past, at least for most.

  3. Great list, Alexis. I am a recovering introvert so I can definitely appreciate these types of jobs. 😉

  4. Brian Winch

    Nice list, Alexis. I have another to consider. Clean up litter outside commercial properties. This service is done on foot using simple hand tools before the businesses open for the day. It’s almost as easy to do as going for a daily walk! I love the peace and quiet of working by myself this time of day.

    1. Alexis

      Love that!
