1. Freelance Consulting
If you learned a skill or trade-in your previous full-time jobs, or if you’re willing to learn something new, you can take to freelancing or consulting to earn a side income. This side hustle can help you or can be turned into a full-time business if you prefer.
I’ve done a bit of this myself. I used to work as a Recruiter. I quit to build this website and turn it into a business. But along the way, I did freelance resume writing and career coaching to supplement my income.
Blogging refers to writing, photography, and other media that’s self-published online.

The hallmarks of blogging include frequent updates, informal language, and opportunities for readers to engage and start a conversation. if you are an introvert and loves writing stories, good at creating content then blogging is for you.
3. Writing Resumes and Cover Letters
If you have a background in HR, recruitment, or you’ve worked as a hiring manager, you could make money online by writing cover letters or resumes for job seekers.
Job seekers don’t have the biggest disposable income, and you won’t earn nearly as much as if you offered a service to businesses (B2B), but it’s still a way to earn a side income while spending as much or as little time as you want per week (like tutoring).
If you have a high-quality camera and photography skills, you could offer these services in your local area. You could offer portraits and headshots, wedding and engagement photos, pet photos, and more
If you speak more than one language, you could offer translation services as your side hustle. All sorts of businesses and people need documents translated – legal documents, contracts, and more.
You could find clients through websites like Upwork.com and Freelancer.com, which are freelance marketplaces for all sorts of professional services.
Side hustles are cool, easy ways to get cool cash but make sure you are good on the skill, this would enhance your chances of striking a pleasant deal.
