Don’t Quit Your Job Yet, Here’s How You Can Start Your Own Venture as a Side Hustle
Is your current 9-to-5 job sucking the life out of you? Are you 100% sure that you would quit if you could? But to be honest, quitting your job is one big step, and truth be told, it may turn out to be a step in the wrong direction if the business you intend to start fails.
All the same, there are some businesses you can dip your toes in without having to hand in that resignation letter just yet. What’s more, they’re relatively easy to manage and will help you hone your entrepreneurial skills for future ventures.
One such venture comes in the form of ride-hailing services Uber, or better yet, Lyft. In the spirit of being candid, driving for either company can’t replace your regular old paycheck. However, what it can do is provide a steady stream of side income, and everyone could do with some extra cash, right?
The best thing about these services is that as the driver, you are the master of your own schedule. Just via your smartphone, you can switch your availability on or off and can work at any time you are free.
Do you have unwanted items in your house that you haven’t used in forever and would be better off going to someone else? Well, you can become an online seller, and there’s no shortage of websites through which you can do this like Amazon, eBay and Craigslist, just to name a few.
And by the way, did you know that Kim Kardashian’s first entrepreneurial venture was selling shoes on eBay? Look how that turned out for her; it shouldn’t be any different for you! To even embellish it a bit, you can offer to sell off some of the stuff your friends don’t need, then earn commissions once the transactions are complete. Sounds pretty simple, right?
You must have heard of freelance writing, and you’ve probably been considering it for a while now. Of all the available options you have while still being employed, this has got to be the least expensive thing you can do. All you need is a computer, good grammar, and an internet connection, and for the grammar, there is an unlimited number of grammar-checking programs.
You can work at night, during the weekends, or even in your office if it’s a slow day (don’t get caught though!). Point is, you can write an article, proofread, type up a resumé, etc. whenever you have the time.
Become a Teacher
Moving on, are you one of those kids whose parents insisted on playing musical instruments? Well, you could also have been interested in your own volition, and you are so in luck. There are many others out there who would want to learn, and you could make a quick buck from teaching your trade.
And just so you know, it doesn’t have to be all about music. If you’re extremely good at any other skill, you can tutor others on that subject. Thanks to technology, you can do all this virtually. Don’t we have Skype, Facetime, and all those other video-calling platforms? The ball is in your court!
Dog lovers can make money out of man’s best friend by signing up to be dog walkers. You could take a stroll with several dogs at the same time, and a regular walk should take you between 30 and 60 minutes. You can do that daily, can’t you?
