8 Fun and Genius Side Hustles You Can Start This Summer
Side hustles have become trendy but also make sense for people who want to pursue hobbies or passions outside of their full-time gig. If you feel like you need something more to do for extra cash but don’t know where to start, here are eight side hustles that you can start this summer.
- Start an Etsy Business
If you have a creative and crafty idea, start your own personal shop easily on Etsy. Pro-tip: create an Instagram account that works in hand with your Etsy shop for maximum exposure. Take Toronto based graphic designer and Etsy owner Lauren Schroer; her shop is dedicated to pins she designs herself and she shares updates about her shop on Instagram, @laurenschroerdesign.
- Create an Airbnb Experience
If you have a service to sell rather than a product, then you might want to consider creating an Airbnb experience. You can offer guided hikes, specialized classes, an Instagram-worthy tour or something unique to you.
- Pet-Sit Furry Friends
Because I’m not a Vanderbilt, suddenly I’m white trash? I grew up in Bel Air, Warner. Across the street from Aaron Spelling. I think most people would agree that’s a lot better than some stinky old Vanderbilt. #legallyblonde . . . #pomeranian #pomeranianpuppy #pomeranianworld #pomeranianspitz #pomeranianlove #dog #puppy #love #toronto #pom #cutepuppies #cutedogs #torontodog #friday #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #pomdogs #pomeranianofinsta #pomeranianoftheday #pomeranianofinstagram #groomer #doggo #doggroomer #bear #teddybear #popculturepom
If you have a deep passion for animals, offer a pet-sitting or pet-walking service. Connect yourself with furry friends and their owners to work out the ideal pet-sitting schedule.
- Start Tutoring
If you have or you’re pursuing a degree, or you have an expertise in a specific subject, start tutoring. Often in-person tutors are more common and found through word of mouth, but you can also tutor online based on your own schedule. All it takes is some research, like on indeed, to find the best fit for you.
- Start Offering Freelance Graphic Design Work
If you’ve got an eye for design, websites like 99designs make it simple for you to find people online who are looking for designers. You can also list yourself and your work as a designer on 99designs and possible clients can easily get in touch with you.
- Offer Web Designing
If you have a skill or passion for web designing, you can turn this hobby into your summer side-hustle! Web designers are often hired on a freelance bases making it easy for you to work on projects around your own hours.
- Teach Music Lessons
Do you play the piano? Guitar? Violin? Offer lessons in the instrument you know how to play. If you don’t necessarily want to teach an instrument but still have a passion for music, try teaching the theory portion of music! There are so many paths you can take to bring your music hobby into a side hustle to bring in extra cash.
- Start a Blog
Nothing beats a classic blog. This can not only become a platform for extra cash, but also a fun project to learn how to build a website and build yourself your own slice of the internet.
