As we all know, Michelle is the queen of the side hustle. She has pretty much turned it into an art at this point.
If you need evidence of this, just take a read through her most recent extra income posts. It’s inspiring and impressive what she’s been able to achieve while still maintaining a full-time job.
While most blog posts about side hustles seem to focus on ways to make money online, I’d like to shine the spotlight on excellent side hustles that have nothing to do with the online world.
Finding ways to make money on the side has been around since the beginning of time, and although the digital world has opened up a million new possibilities for generating income, there are still several tried and true methods for earning a little extra cash that have nothing to do with the internet.
Babysitting to make side income offline.
I have a large family, and they all have kids. I don’t charge them when I babysit for them, but if I did, I would probably make a fair amount of cash with this gig. Babysitting is a very easy, fun and relaxing way to make a little extra money, especially if it’s in the evening. Typically kids go to bed early, and then the babysitter can just hang out and watch TV – and get paid for it!
House cleaning to earn extra money offline.
Most of the people around here who clean houses do it on a part-time, freelance basis. It can be a great way to make some extra cash. Usually there is a fair amount of freedom with this side hustle, and if you can’t find time to do homes during the day (when most home owners prefer their homes to be cleaned) many businesses prefer that office cleaners work in the evening, which would be perfect for the average full-time job holder.
Personally, I hate cleaning and find it disgusting, so it wouldn’t be the best side hustle for me, but I know several people who do it and find it very rewarding.
Gardening to make extra money offline.
Many of you probably knew an entrepreneurial kid who would mow lawns and rake leaves every summer and fall? Well, there’s no reason an adult couldn’t get in on the action!
Offering gardening, lawn mowing, and lawn clean up services is a great, seasonal way to earn some extra cash. If you charge by the hour, you’ll have no problem beating the cost estimates of full-time landscaping companies, since they have a lot of overhead to factor into their prices.
Most home owners will even provide the equipment necessary, so there’s no need for an initial capital investment.
I’ve been working on my side hustle since last August, and it’s coming along fairly well. I make most of my side hustle money through my blog and staff writing. My husband, on the other hand, is king of the offline side hustle. He does it all, painting, gardening, babysitting, whatever needs done, he’s your man. There’s definitely money to be made through side hustling offline, so if blogging isn’t your thing, give some of these options a try!
Do you have a side job so that you can make extra money? What is it? Is it online or offline?
