Money makes the world go round. The more you earn, the more you can afford the good things of life. However, as much as we wish it, money does not fall from trees. But, it is also not that difficult to make money. One of the best ways to earn a lot of money is to diversify your sources of income. This means you have to take up more responsibilities. Anyway, if you are in search of a side hustle to earn more, here are some of the things to do:
If you have a skillset you can teach others, you can actually make money from it. In Nigeria, you have Tuteria where you can register your skills and the amount you want to be paid. Be it piano or foreign language skills you have, you can use it to make money.
The age of the internet has significantly made it easier for anyone to engage in freelance writing. There are thousands of freelance jobs online. Google is your friend. You can sit in the comfort of your home, work remotely and make money.
If you own a nice-looking and clean SUV, you can use to provide ride-sharing services. You simply need to approach Uber or Taxify to register your car and you can start. If you are busy during the week, then use your weekend to do this. Alternatively, you can give out your car to a trusted driver (still using Uber or Taxify) that would deliver a certain amount weekly.
Like earlier said, the internet is available for anyone to take advantage of. You can buy things online and resell it. However, make sure that whatever you are purchasing to reselling are durable.
You do not have to run the errands yourself. You can set up a startup that runs errands for people. Errands like paying bills at the bank, taking a vehicle to the mechanic among others can be done by your startup and you will be paid.
Blogging may not earn you quick cash. But over time and if you are serious about it, you will begin to get traction, engagement and attention. Before you know it, advertisers will be after you. This was how Linda Ikeji started.
