Money Hungry? 16 Side Hustles You Can Start TODAY

Money Hungry? 16 Side Hustles You Can Start TODAY | The Melody Show
Melody Alanna

My generation has mastered the art of the side hustle. We all need that extra income that we just aren't getting from our full-time gigs.

If you can't pay your rent, want to go to Miami for New Years Eve, or need some extra cash for your fried chicken obsession, here are 16 ways to get started TODAY!

1. Sell your shit!

One mans trash is another mans treasure! If you have stuff lying around, dust it off take some pictures and sell it on eBay, Poshmark, Amazon, or Craigslist.  You can also sell vintage and handmade items on Etsy.

2. Rent out an extra room in your home/apartment via Airbnb


Plenty of Americans with overpriced rent are managing to pay their dues using Airbnb. This service allows you to rent out your apartment/home/couch like a hotel. If you're leaving for vacation and you don’t mind having a stranger in your home, you can rent out your space at any time for any price you deem necessary.

3. Create an online store


Turn your hobbies into cash. Successful online stores can rank in 100k per year, and you don't need anything but a product and an eCommerce website. You can even let third parties like Big Cartel and Etsy, and eBay host you're online stores, but they will take a small percentage of the profits. Some online stores have ended up becoming BIG businesses. Learn all about how to start your online business from this couple's successful online handkerchief business.


4. Modeling 


how to be a model

If you think you don't have what it takes to be a model, you're wrong. You DON'T have to look like Kendall Jenner to make some money in the modeling industry. Freelance modeling can ring in about 500-800 dollars per shoot! So if you like getting your picture taken, get a basic portfolio done and start selling yourself to agencies, casting directors, clothing designers or anyone who wants to use what you're momma gave ya to promote their brand.

There are even modeling agencies that will represent your unique body parts! So if you have nice hands, gaped teeth, freckles, or breathtaking eyes, you can make some great money modeling. It's worth a shot!

5. Work in the food service industry 


Server, bartender, bar back, hostess, food runner, cocktail waitress. If you have the patience, these positions will make you fast and easy money in the food service industry. I like to pick up a part time serving job once or twice a year to bring in some extra cash. I was averaging about 300-500 dollars a week as a server working 2-3 days a week. Bartenders could make double that depending on the venue. You also get the opportunity to meet tons of people and network your ass off! How would you like you're steak cooked?

6. Become a club promoter 


If you know a bunch of people that like to party, party, party you should consider becoming a club promoter. Depending on the location, promoters can average about $20 for each person they bring to the venue, in addition to a commission made from any bottle service packages they sell. They also get to party FOR FREE. Just promise you won't be like this dude:

7. Consulting (selling you're knowledge)  


Knowledge is power. Dating, nutrition, sports, and lifestyle are only a few hot topics you can choose to consult in. You can pretty much get paid to consult in anything, as long as you have some sort of expertise in the subject. Consultants will exchange their knowledge for a hefty price. If you know something others want to know, make a business out of it! Life coaches make a killing off of group workshops and one-on-one sessions with private clients. Find your niche and start marketing your services via word of mouth and the internet. You deliver the knowledge, clients pay for it, instant side hustle. 

8. Make money shopping with these rebate app$


I WANT MY REBATE! All of these apps are valid, but I am obsessed with the simplicity of IBotta. You scan your receipt and BOOM! You get cash back for tons of things you buy on a regular basis. To date Ibotta users have earned $44,142,798 in cash back rewards! Start using Gigwalk, IBotta, Receipt HogSavingStar, Field Agent, CheckPoints, EasyShift, or Shopkick to get cash back today. 


9. Personal Training

Got a hot bod? One benefit of living in a morbidly obese nation is the booming physical fitness business. All you need is a superb physique, a personal training certification from a nationally accredited fitness institute, and in some cases a CPR/AED certification to start developing a roster of personal training clients. You can train outdoors or rent space in a fitness facility to train your clients. Personal training is an investment at first, but some trainers charge up to $325/hour. If you have private clients you're getting that cash directly. Personal training not only puts some extra cash in your pocket, but it also keeps you in amazing shape. Who doesn't like helping others to help themselves? 

10. Movie/TV Extra
