5 Side Hustles You Can Do from Home

What is a side hustle? 


Do you need to make money outside of your main job?  We all could use a little bit of money for family fun, vacations, hobbies, or home upgrades we want to do!  




I need like five side hustles. I do a couple of the hustles I mention below.  With the extra money I've been making these past couple months, I've been able to do a lot more for my kids, plus the feeling of paying bills on time is incredible.  Life seems always to be a struggle but lately, not so much.  

Side hustles are not easy because there is always a time factor. However, they allow you to make more money that'll give you the freedom to pursue your passions, buy things you need or want, and lower any financial worries. Your priorities might have to shift a bit, but you can do it! 
 
Please do your research, but these days, it’s easier than ever before to set up your own business. Technology has made it possible to dive into the world of self-employment, working from the comfort of your own home. Plus, some of us have no choice but to work from home.  Why not utilize this time to educate yourself in a new hobby or career.  

Freelancing is an incredibly popular side hustle option. There are lots of different freelancing careers you can get into, but here are five freelancing side hustles you can do from home.

1. Accountant



If you’re looking for a lucrative freelancing career, accountancy is a great choice. Given the number of self-employed people, these days is continuously increasing, the demand for accountants is high. You can ask your family and friends if they need help. You can assist with accounting services to all kinds of businesses and start-ups. 

It’s a relatively easy career to startup if you have the right qualifications too. Check out online schools for continuing education or a course to become certified. You won’t need much in the way of capital, and you’ll find it easy to generate new clients. 
  • Pros: Well paid, don’t require much capital to get started, and stable clients.
  • Cons: Inconsistent income, requires qualifications


2. Writer 



If you have a way with words, freelance writing is another opportunity available. Whether you want to write web content for businesses, blogs, reviews, or even product descriptions, there’s a type of writing you can get into to fit your preferences. There are so many people out there in the cyber world that need a WRITER! 

You’ll also find you can write on practically any topic too. So, whatever you’re interested in, you’ll be able to write about it while getting paid.
  • Pros: Plenty of opportunities, no real qualifications required, work remotely
  • Cons: Inconsistent income, not the highest paid opportunity 

3. Marketer 

Another great freelancing opportunity is to become a marketer. Digital marketing is huge right now, and it’s forever changing. Many businesses don’t have the time or know-how to market their brand online. Marketing is my favorite side hustle to do, be able to help someone brand themselves, or their product is exciting.  

By the way, there are so many free courses on digital marketing you can take. All you need to do is some research on digital marketing.  Make sure to take classes because that will give you the knowledge that you need to start offering freelance marketing services. You could also specialize in particular types of marketing, too, such as email marketing or social media marketing. The options are out there; you need to find them. 
  • Pros: An in-demand industry, varied workload, minimal qualifications required 
  • Cons: Inconsistent income, finding job opportunities 

4. Virtual Assistant



This is my main side hustle. Virtual assistants are always in demand. Coaches, small business owners, and even bloggers are always looking for someone to help with the day to day tasks.  Think of this job as a standard personal assistant that assists when needed. 

You’ll be providing administrative support to companies. Virtual Assisting can include data entry, handling phone and email communication for the business, and scheduling appointments. Some tasks are time-consuming or not fun, and that is why they hire you. 
  • Pros: High-demand, work from home, minimal qualifications required
  • Cons: Pay isn’t always great, inconsistent income

5. Web Designer

Finally, another option is to become a freelance web designer. Out of all of the roles featured on this list, a web designer role does require a little more expertise. However, there are a lot of courses online you can take to teach yourself web design. I taught myself a lot of web design when I was a blogger; YouTube was my best friend when it came to showing me how to make my website cute but functional. 

This is an incredibly lucrative role, allowing you to earn a high income. Businesses are continually looking to have websites designed or updated. So, you’ll never run out of clients in this career.  There is someone always looking to change up their site or create a new one. 
  • Pros: Very lucrative career, in-demand, remote working
  • Cons: Qualifications are required, inconsistent income
So, there you have it – 5 side hustles you can do from home.  The one downside of freelancing as a side hustle is our income will change from month to month. But there are ways you can build up more stability within the job. When thinking of a freelancing career to start up in, consider what you’re interested in and like to do. There are lots of great side hustles opportunities, so no matter what your skills or hobbies, you’ll find an option to suit you.
