In this article we are going to go over seven different side jobs that you can use to make some extra money in this coming year, as you can do these before work, after work and during your lunch break. It doesn’t really matter, you can do this any time of the day. These jobs are very flexible in terms of hours. Now I will explain this list of jobs.
Some of these jobs, you probably haven’t heard of. However, these jobs are not going to be jobs where you’re making five cents for Amazon or something ridiculous. These jobs are all going to be at least $10 an hour or more. Some of these jobs even will make you $15, $20 or $25 an hour.
Some of these side jobs in this list are very legitimate methods for earning some extra income. I’ve used a few of these methods. I know other people who do some of these side jobs as well. I can really vouch for most of these methods for making money.
Dog Walking for Money
One of my favorite side jobs that you could use is a dog-walking app. This would be something like Rover or Wag (mobile apps). I’m not affiliated with them, and they are not paying me to mention them at all. These seem like really cool methods for earning income. You can get typically between twelve and sixteen dollars per dog that you walk.
You’ll actually get these dog walking assignments on the app. You’ll go walk the dog and have fun with the dog. This is a win-win situation. You get to hang out with the dog for thirty minutes to an hour, and you get paid around twelve dollars or sixteen dollars for a fifteen or twenty minute walk. You can do this for long periods of time if you’d like, or you could do it during your lunch break if you have an hour for lunch.

You can to do this before work, or after work. You can do this any time of the day. It’s a great idea to hang out with dogs, have a good time and also get paid for it. You can work on your own schedule. It’s a pretty easy and laid-back process.
Making Money With Clarity.FM
You can make extra money on the side by using a website called Clarity. I signed up for this website. If you have any experience in entrepreneurship, or you’ve started a business in the past, or you have some type of marketing experience or SEO (there’s a lot of options behind this website), you can essentially become an expert. People can call you at a certain rate and then you can give them advice.
You could literally be in bed and talk to someone, getting paid $60 or $100 an hour to give them advice. This is something that you might want to look into if you are an expert in any of the areas they have listed on their website. The great thing about it is being very flexible. You don’t have to travel anywhere to get paid. You can be in Bali or anywhere in the world. As long as you have a phone and are an expert, you can give people advice and get paid for it.
Making Money With Care.com
My next bit of advice is to use a site called care.com. Many people, when they think about care.com, they are thinking about babysitting. Personally, I don’t think of it in terms of babysitting, however,you can actually also do dog sitting and dog boarding as well. There are all kinds of different housekeeping options on there. I would go on the site and check it out, because it’s not just for babysitting. There are so many different options. My brother’s girlfriend actually got a job through the website. It’s part-time and it’s very flexible.
You can really find some good opportunities and really get some good networking as well. For example, if you have some extra room in your house and you don’t mind boarding some dogs, you can get paid $200 to board a dog for a week through Care.com. There’s all kinds of different options behind that. You might want to see what you can find on there. Many opportunities there are very flexible.
The next method for making a side income is becoming a freelance photographer. By becoming a freelance photographer, you can shoot weddings. You can do company headshots. I know someone who gets $50 per headshot that they do for a company. The company might have twenty five people and they’ll charge $50 per person to get a photo of their face taken. This is just an option.
Some people might say I, “I’m not a photographer, I don’t know how to take pictures.” You can learn how to do this on the internet. You can learn by watching some courses on photography. You can take a course at your local community college if you really the need to have a physical presence, and have somebody actually teaching you.
There’s different levels of skill required. It takes time to acquire and build up your skills. Photography is definitely something that you could consider getting into. It can be very flexible with your time. You can spend a weekend and and shoot a wedding and make fifteen hundred dollars in a single weekend. That’s what’s really awesome about really being a freelance photographer.
Teaching English Online
As we discuss many different money making ideas and side jobs that you might find interesting, let me tell you about the next one which is teaching English online.
There’s a few different sites for this. One side is called Qkids. Here is a description on their website of their service.
Qkids connects 300,000+ Chinese young learners between 4 – 12 years old with you and thousands of other online teachers, tutors, educators, stay at home parents, college students, and all those who have a passion for teaching. If you like starting your day with smiling faces of curious kids, join the Qkids family today!
Another option is Cambly. I’ve used Cambly, where you can teach English online. With Cambly, you’re only going to make a little bit over $10 an hour. With Qkids, you can make closer to $20 an hour by teaching English online.
Many of you will think, “Wait a minute. I only speak English. I don’t know if I can do this. How do I communicate with them?”
I only speak English too. I can only speak English, but I can still do Cambly. I make a little bit over $10 an hour on Cambly by helping people learn English. It’s just conversations that you’re having with them. They’re just getting better at English and they want to have some practice. If you can give them some pointers, that will be helpful for them.
It’s pretty laid-back. You can sit in your bed and make money online by just video chatting with somebody. who’s probably on the other side of the world trying to learn your language. Cambly and Qkids are the companies to check out for teaching English online. You need a college degree and English teaching certificate with Qkids, however, you do not with Cambly.
Following is from the Cambly website:
While you chat with students, we automatically track the time you tutor. We pay $0.17 USD per minute ($10.20/hour), delivering your earnings every Monday via Paypal.
Make Money With Instacart
Instacart is where you will deliver groceries to people. It’s sort of like Uber Eats or GrubHub, except what you’re doing is delivering groceries instead of restaurant food.
You will actually be shopping in the store for this job. You will then deliver the groceries to someone who ordered them online. After you’ve completed the transaction, you’ll get paid for it. This is something that Uber drivers will do. Sometimes Uber drivers will do this and sometimes Lyft drivers will as well. You can do this almost a full-time gig. You can choose your own hours, and the pay is pretty decent from what I’ve heard.
It’s very flexible for your time, and it’s something that I thought would be interesting to throw into this list. It is something that’s more up-and-coming into the future as more people order groceries online, and people deliver them to their house.
There is Instacart if you prefer to deliver groceries. There is also Uber Eats and GrubHub if you prefer to deliver restaurant food. There’s so many different services out there in the economy where you can deliver food or other types of items.
Become a Public Notary
The next example I have of making good money on the side is by becoming a notary public. This isn’t the number one side job, but it’s something that I’ve thought about for a while. I’ve heard about people starting these these notaries and becoming somebody who can notarize documents.
When you transfer a vehicle or when you have to get something very important signed, a notary public is required. A public notary is someone who can sign on important documents that require an authorised witness.
Where I live, it’s not incredibly difficult to become a public notary. You can even run this out of your house. Take a look at what other notaries do in your local area. Many are running them out of their house, or just a small office. They are pretty laid back as a side job. I would look into it for your state. It might not be worth it for you, but it’s definitely something interesting that could pay pretty steady income of $15 or $20 dollars an hour.
