Last year’s pandemic has shown many of us that life can make a u-turn very quickly and unexpectedly. This has made quite a few of us learn that your job is never safe and relying on just one source of income can be more risky than we thought. 2020 made lots of people decide to either make a change with their career choice or start something themself on the side which you could say was a positive thing for some. Whether you’ve got a good job or not, a few extra hundred pounds a month can make a significant difference for anyone. Whether you’re thinking of starting a side hustle that could eventually become your full-time career or perhaps just want to earn a little extra cash online or in the evenings and weekends. Here are some great suggestions:

1. Online tutoring,  teaching & mentoring

With schools, colleges and universities forced to close early in the year due to the pandemic. Many had to move their learning online. This made the demand for extra learning support like tutoring online rise but also made people realise learning doesn’t only have to go on within these institutions. With so many people having extra time at home and lots of people furloughed, its also made people more motivated to take up new skills such as learning a new language, completing courses and learning a new instrument. People looking for extra support with career development such as online mentoring has also increased.

2. Virtual Fitness Trainer

Although gyms are now shut, many people have become more fearful of going to the gym and lots have realised it’s possible to stay fit from home. So if you’re into fitness, consider helping  others train at home by offering one-on-one fitness sessions for them. From yoga to gym work to anything else you specialise in.

4. Start a podcast

Starting a podcast is completely free and a lot of fun. You can fit around your routine, start it with your friends, family, co-workers or anyone you choose too..

The beauty of podcasting is it can be on virtually any topic you like; fitness, politics, religion, fashion, love – anything! Some podcasters even repurpose content that has been previously written. You basically get paid to share your thoughts or opinions out out loud.. amazing! If the podcast is likely to get a good response/listen then you can promote it on Soundcloud, Spotify and Apple Music and earn money from sponsorships and even advertising deals.

5. Rent out room/ property space

If you’ve got a spare room going or even a second home? You could be earning extra income by taking in a lodger. Letting someone into your home is obviously quite a personal decision,  but it does come with many benefits. Not only can it have social benefits but the income generated from a spare room can be used towards increased costs or even to help pay off the mortgage early. If you fancy travelling, letting out your house for a short period of time would also be a great way to cover costs allowing you to be stress-free while you’re away.
