4 Side Hustle Ideas You Can Start Today

Which side hustle idea will you choose?

If you need extra cash to get out of debt, save for a vacation, or fund a passion project, this list has plenty of side hustle ideas for you.

Some of the list covers part-time flexible jobs that don’t require much education, skill, or commitment. Those gigs can help you with your short-term financial goals.

But if you want to increase your earning potential, permanently and exponentially, at some point you need to stop trading your time for money.

You need to think bigger.

The best way to increase your income is to free yourself from the mindset of being an employee. That means creating a business.

In 2018, it’s easier than ever to do this, even if you work full-time. With a computer and an internet connection, you can work from home, using the skills and resources you already have, to create a second stream of income.

Over time, a side business you build in your spare time can bring you the success and freedom you crave.

Start today with Roadmap to Freedom, your online business journey in six simple steps.


Virtual Assistant

Remote workers and freelancers get paid to do administrative tasks that would have been done by full-time employees in the past. This is excellent news for people with office admin skills.

Instead of working in a cubicle, take advantage of this opportunity with virtual assistant side hustles from home. VA’s can make money on the side with one-off tasks, regular part-time work, or as a full-time career. You can decide your level of commitment.

Check out this interview with Trivinia Barber to find out how she leveraged her experience as an executive assistant into a VA side hustle, and a successful business.


Article Writing

Writing for blogs, print, and content marketing agencies is one of the best side hustle ideas to make money quickly. It’s free to get rolling and can be done from anywhere at any time.

You will see many low-paying gigs on freelance sites, but an experienced and talented writer can make serious money through premium content services like nDash. Or you could build a business and brand around your freelance writing, like podcast guest Bryce Bladon.



While voice-recognition software is improving, there is still a market for real people to accurately transcribe audio. In fact, using transcription software enables you to bypass the typing, so you can focus on providing added value with accurate, well-formatted transcriptions.

With all of the audio content being produced, from podcasts to YouTube videos to academic lectures, you’ll never run out of side gigs. Freelance sites like Fiverr and Upwork are a good starting point, for this and many other side gig ideas.


Drive for a rideshare service

If your city has Uber or Lyft, consider signing up and earning money driving passengers where they need to go. If you have a vehicle, this is one of the easy side jobs you can start fairly quickly. Drive as little or as much as you want, whenever you have time.


Create workout plans

Every day, people look to the internet for help with their fitness routines. Using freelance sites or online fitness forums to find clients, create customized workout plans for individual goals and physical limitations.

Increase your earning potential by creating courses or ebooks to sell through your website.
