Whether you’re in your retirement or working a full-time job, you may be looking for side hustles to make extra money. Finding something that is a legitimate job and not a pyramid scheme is often the hardest part when looking for a side hustle. 

Before you go looking for a side hustle, you should consider a few things:

  1. The time you have available to work a side or part-time job;
  2. Your experience and/or abilities for the type of job you will consider; and
  3. Your hobbies and interests.

The Best Side Hustles to Make Extra Money

Pet Sitting & Dog Walking

If you love animals, you would probably enjoy helping people with their pet needs. The best part is that you get to set your time, choose who you accept to work with, and your rate! Rover is a great site to get started and you could earn up to $1000 per month!

Become a Tutor

Tutors are often needed for English, reading, math, science, biology, you name it. In just about every subject you can imagine, there are parents, students, and even teachers, who could use your services. You get to set the rate, your time, and even the place.  You can even offer to tutor virtually online. If you are able to help students prep for SAT or ACT and build a good reputation, you will have a lucrative side hustle. 

Create, Make, and Sell

Do you enjoy sewing? Painting? Building? Restoring? Take your hobby to the next level and consider selling your creations online. Sites like Etsy, Shopify, or even Facebook, offers you the ability to create, make, and sell. 

Write and Proofread

You may have always dreamed of writing your own book. Retirement is the perfect time to make that dream come true and make extra money from it. Maybe you’re someone who cringes when reading someone else’s writing because of all the errors you find. You may be the perfect proofreader and get paid for doing it. 

Personal Shopper

Some people despise shopping, some are unable to shop, and some just don’t have time for it. This is the perfect opportunity to make extra money as a side hustle because if you do it right, you can do 3-4 grocery shops in just one visit! Average charges range between $20-$25 per shop plus delivery so be sure to not go to far out of your way. Advertise your services within your community and on some Facebook groups to keep your services within the location of your choice. 

Side hustles can be fun and become more than just a way to make extra money. Find something that is best suited for you.
