10 Easy Side Hustles for 2020
A side hustle is a good way to earn an extra income on the side of your normal jobs. The beauty of the ideas for these 10 easy side hustles is that many of them don’t require education or special skills, and anyone can do them. Not all of these qualify as a business, but they all have the potential to earn a significant side income.
Top 10 Easy Side Hustles
1. Drive for Uber or Lyft
The sharing economy have exploded and Uber and Lyft have taken over the taxi business. You set your availability in the app when you are driving and when you’r off. You set your own hours and can drive during day or night, whenever is convenient for you.
Almost anyone can drive for them as long as you have a car and a valid drivers license. You just need to pass a background check and you are good to go
Pro tip: Both Uber and Lyft supports “destination mode”, which allows you to earn money on your regular morning or evening commute by telling the app where you are heading, and only accept riders / passengers along that route.
2. Rent your spare room on AirBnB
Do you have an extra room that you don’t use? Rent it out on AirBnB. You get paid 24 hours after guests check in. It’s a fun way to meet new people and make money at the same time.
A few guests each month may cover your entire mortgage, and some people even make a living of renting out rooms and houses on AirBnB.
3. Create YouTube Tutorials
Are you good a something, like your work or your hobby? Create video tutorials on how to do that skill and upload them to YouTube.
Once you have 1000 subscribers, your account is eligible for monetization and you can start earning money from ads. You can also create sponsored videos and promote products for extra money. That is passive income right there as every video you produce will generate passive income.
Everyone have something they are good at, even video games count here (that is actually huge on YouTube).
4. Walk Dogs
Do you love dogs? Find a neighborhood filled with dog-owners and put up some flyers and slip them into their mailboxes. Let them know you are a dog walker and list your price.
Most dog-owners are happy to outsource a walk or two each day, and are happy to have someone walk their dog while they are at work. Build a stream of clients and your side-hustle business will grow over time.
Pro tip: You can walk multiple dogs at the same time to increase your income.
5. Clean Houses
There are many people who need help cleaning their house. But another market are people who rent out houses on AirBnB. They need someone to clean the house after each guest have stayed, and they charge the guest for that. This is a perfect opportunity for you to come in and provide your service.
