What kind of money are we talking about?
Let’s talk about how much money, because I don’t know a single person that wouldn’t benefit from having more money right now. Please know (before you start) that some of these hustles are not fulltime, (that’s why they are called a side hustle).
Here’s a trick… if you add a few together you really could bring in some real cash to benefit you and your family this year. Like I said before they all have little to no start-up fee and some are completely free to join.
Why you need a side hustle in 2020 and beyond!
Now everyone loves to talk about side hustle ideas and making passive income as a way of making a little extra cash on the side but there’s another very important reason why you need to be setting up your own side hustle in the business in freelancing or independent work.
- Side hustles have exploded over the last few years with more than 60 million Americans are already working for hire companies.
- These companies are loving the trend because companies don’t have to pay a lot of the benefits in taxes so it might not be long before freelancing is the way everyone works, so getting your side business started TODAY (this year) is going to make you ready for when that shift actually happens.
- Even if you’re not worried about the coming jobs apocalypse, starting a side hustle is a great way to reach financial freedom so you can make a little extra cash to reach your dreams and goals just that much faster, and so you don’t have to live paycheck to paycheck (which most people do!).
1. Company: Respondent
The first company I’ll tell you about is called Respondent. Now, what Respondent does is they send you new products so you can BETA test them.
When any type of company is about to launch a new product they actually want to send out their new products to beta testers to get their feedback and get their review (to see if they can tweak the product to make it a little bit better).
So, in this case, your opinion matters when it comes to the price, the sizing, the weight, and your overall review. Your opinion = cash!
Requirements: Must be 18 years of age, and have a working WiFi Internet connection.
They will run a background criminal check with you to make sure you are the right candidate for the companies they work with.

2. Company: Upwork.com
Upwork is incredible because you can become a virtual assistant (VA) for almost anything. People who hire from Upwork will pay you per hour and you can actually negotiate with the person who is hiring you on how much you think you are worth and what a fair price for that job is.
You can get hired for work like graphic design, admin assistance, customer service, and whatever they need.
Basically, if you go in there and you sign up you want to input what tasks/skills you have experience with such as graphic design, Photoshop, virtual assistant experience, admin, bookkeeping, and social media.
Keep in mind that they want to hire someone with experience for VA work, so the more experience you have the higher the price you can negotiate.
Requirements: Must be 18 years of age, and have a working WiFi Internet connection. They will not run a background or criminal check but experience and references may be needed.

Uber or Lyft whatever you prefer! I’m sure you’ve probably ridden with one of them… but you can also drive for them and make bank while commuting yourself!
This side hustle can pay pretty decent, you can make anywhere from 20 to 35 an hour (depending on where you live) and it’s a very flexible side job that you can take advantage of if you have a decent working car and/or a good driving record.
NOTE: every town is going to be different so it’s just a hard one to know exactly what you’re going to make until you start driving.
Requirements: Must be 18 years of age, have a working car, and phone to access the app. They will run a background or criminal check.
4. Company: Tutor.com
This next side hustle you can set up and get started in a day! Teaching English online has exploded in popularity, and the best platform to do that with is Tutor.com.
You will get assigned to students and can start making money in less than a week.
This site is legit and will give you as many hours as you can handle. For a 30-minute session, you can expect to make between 15 and 50 dollars (and most students are going to need three to five hours a week) so you really don’t need a lot of students
NOTE: It helps to get a little training in at first but any native English speaker can learn how to teach in less than a week.
There’s a huge demand for this right now. You can teach independently through Facebook or Skype getting students through a blog or marketing yourself, but the best way is through Tutor.com.
Requirements: Must be 18 years of age, have a working WIFI connection, working camera, and audio system. They will run a background or criminal check.

5. Company: Affiliate Marketing with ShareAsale
Next, we have affiliate marketing and this one is going to work best if you already have a blog or another source of online traffic.
ShareAsale is a site that connects companies with bloggers, or other publishers that have access to a lot of traffic/followers.
Once you sign up for a company’s affiliate program through Shareasale and get a link to their product…
That link comes with a tracking code (that are called cookies), and you can put that link within a blog post, in a Facebook or a Twitter post, or just about anywhere where it’s allowed.
If someone clicks your affiliate link and makes a purchase, you get a commission!
NOTE: I use affiliate marketing as my income source for this blog and I make really good cash this way! It does take time in the beginning, to build up your blog’s traffic, but it really adds up once you get into the swing of things.
