If you’re struggling to save money or finding that your main source of income is not providing you or your family with financial stability, it might be time to consider picking up a second job or a couple of side hustles from home that can give you some extra cash.
Whether you need a second source of full-time income or just want a little extra spending money on the side to pay for a medical procedure from The Bunion Cure, keep reading to learn about three easy side gigs you can do to earn money from the comfort of your own home.
1. Virtual Assistant
A virtual assistant does all of the usual tasks of a personal assistant such as booking appointments, managing schedules, taking calls, and more, however, this job is done entirely remotely. While this job is more time consuming than other options on this list and would likely take up as much of your time as a traditional full-time job, virtual assistant positions are often high paying, making this one of the best remote jobs available for those looking to earn and save a considerable amount of extra money.
2. Online Tutor
If you have knowledge in a particular field of study, you can work as a remote tutor for students around the world of all ages. While some companies such as Paper hire remote tutors to work for their clients, you can also work independently and advertise your services to students and their parents online.
The amount of money you can earn as a tutor depends on your rate per hour which might be based on your level of expertise and the type of work you are assisting with, but many tutors can expect to make an average of around $20/hour.
3. Sell Items Online
One of the most popular ways to earn money online is by selling items on apps and websites such as Depop, Poshmark, Etsy, and more. These sites allow you to sell both secondhand items as well as original or handmade objects.
Whether you clean out your closet and put up clothes for sale or have the ability to design or create your own crafts or even digital art, this is a fairly simple (and enjoyable) way to earn a second income from the comfort of your own home.
