hustles, each one a legit work from home business but just looking at the list is overwhelming. Picking your perfect side hustle means first
thinking through what you want to do then asking yourself three questions that will
narrow the list to that one perfect idea. Let’s start with a few ideas on what you
want to do and then I’ll reveal those three critical questions after we look through the
list of side hustles. First I want you to sit down and list out
all your hobbies, talents and skills. One way to do this is to first write out everything
you do on a daily or weekly basis, I mean everything. You might have a good idea of what you can
do or what you’d like to do but physically listing out your routine is going to give
you a few more ideas you didn’t think of. It’s also going to make everything top-of-mind
when we look at that list of different side hustles later. Some other ideas can come from your academic
subject areas and classes you enjoyed in school. Any DIY skills you have like crafts, carpentry
or cleaning. Also include soft skills like public speaking,
working with people or organizing. Be sure to list out all the tasks you do at
work as well. You can also add to the list things you always
wanted to do but haven’t got a chance. These ideas make for a great side hustle,
learning how to do something. You won’t be at the professional level at
first but can spend a few weeks learning and then start charging for the services. That passion and drive for the activity though
is going to make the hustle fun so you don’t get burned out. Next you’re going to narrow this list of
activities to ones you can see yourself spending a lot of time on. A lot of the side hustles we’ll look at
can be done in as little as five hours a week but even that is still a lot of time to be
doing something you don’t enjoy. Remember, you’re probably going to be doing
this on top of your regular nine-to-five job, at least at first, so your hustle needs to
be something you don’t mind spending a few extra hours doing. It HAS to start from that passion and that
motivation. Now you’re ready to look at our list of
101 side hustle ideas to see which ones match your skills or maybe give you new ideas. So let’s look at those work from home ideas,
we’ll break them into 11 categories. It’s a long list but stick around because
afterwards, I’ll reveal those three questions to ask yourself that will guarantee you pick
the perfect side hustle. Our first group here, and I’m breaking this
up into two slides is some of the different freelancing jobs. This is quick project-type work you can do
either through your own website getting clients or through freelancer sites like Upwork. This first group of freelance jobs can be
started with no equipment, very little setup. These are things that come directly from your
experience and skills and you can charge from $30 an hour up into the hundreds. So here we see jobs like copywriter, editor,
graphic design and transcription. This next group of jobs might require some
equipment or setup but you can generally get more money. Even these that require some equipment though,
you can get started quickly and you’ve got maximum flexibility in the hours you work. This next group, side hustles in coaching
or consulting, is the best for low startup costs but a little less flexibility in your
scheduling. You can start these up quickly but you’ll
always have to schedule around your clients’ availability. Another two slides here because the list of
coaching jobs is basically endless. There is a coaching demand for just about
any skill. All you need to do is get your message in
front of the right people. So some of the traditional coaching businesses
are as a life coach, marketing or social media consultant, you can coach people in general
health or more specifically in fitness, public speaking is another popular one. Some more ideas here including some that aren’t
as typical like leadership coaching, family, online dating and a writing coach. The benefit to coaching is that it’s more
scalable than you might think. This is something we’ll talk about in the
third video of the series, growing your side hustle business, but you can play around with
the business model here from coaching one-on-one to doing group calls for the opportunity to
grow sales. This next group of side hustles is probably
the most popular and what most think about when they think online business. With selling online, you’ve probably got
more startup costs because you need to buy that initial inventory or supplies but I feel
like you have more upside than freelancing or consulting. With selling online, you’re creating that
business that makes money even when you’re not working. Here you’ve got two distinct groups, two
different business models for selling online. This first group involves selling other people’s
products or reselling. It’s a little easier because you don’t
have to go through the work of creating your own products but of course the profits are
lower because you have to buy something to resell. So here you have selling on eBay or being
an Amazon reseller, selling antiques or other finds. You can buy and sell websites and old electronics,
pretty much anything. The alternative is to create your own products. This means a little more time setting up but
higher profits and the potential to create a brand around your products. Here we have ideas like selling crafts on
Etsy, opening a store on Amazon FBA and as a private label. You can also do informational products like
selling courses. I’ve got a three-video series on the channel
about creating your own online courses. I made over $9,000 in the first four months
selling my first course and the video series is going to walk you through everything from
creating your course to marketing. I’ll leave a link to that playlist in the
video description below so make sure you check that out. The next group is a really broad category
that I’ll just call creative. It’s going to include some of the side hustles
in design as well as some of the online creative ideas. I love these because it’s really where you
can charge a lot more for your services because the rate is more dependent on your skill. You’ve got a few hustles here that require
some equipment like stock photography and vlogging but for the most part, start-up costs
are low on the service-type businesses. The t-shirt business is an interesting one
and I’ve seen people make a lot of money with this, using sites like t-spring. Here it helps to stay right on top of the
current trends to print shirts that can go viral on social media. Of the group, maybe I’m a little biased
to creating a YouTube channel because of what it’s meant for my business. Starting the channel here helped me grow my
community to over 75,000 people within a year and a half. I make $120 a day just on the ads and another
two or three thousand a month on sponsorships. In fact, I’m doing a free webinar on getting
started with a YouTube channel, how to create videos and the income sources I use if you
want to get started. It’s totally free but you have to reserve
a spot so I’ll leave a link in the video description below. Our next group of side hustle ideas is a short
one but I feel like there’s a lot more opportunities that aren’t on the list. Side hustles in the financial space probably
require the most set up but take it from someone that worked as a freelance equity analyst,
you can make a lot of money here. Here you’ve got shorter-term projects like
tax prep but also some side hustles you’ll do on a continual basis like financial planning
and accounting. You can do these for individuals or other
businesses so don’t neglect the opportunity to expand your customer base. I’ll admit I know absolutely nothing about
our next group of side hustle ideas. I’ve never been a techie kind of guy but
it’s a skillset that sets you apart from the masses. These require no startup costs and you can
make good money if you compete for the right projects. One thing about these tech jobs like app developer,
programmer or systems analyst is you need to price your services on quality and prove
that you’re worth every penny. If you’re just applying for a project on
Upwork or another freelancing platform, you’ll be competing against a world of freelancers,
many of which with a much lower cost of living. So here you really need to seek out those
higher price projects and sell the value of your skills. This next group is another broad one with
service ideas for a side hustle. This is another one where startup costs are
nil, you basically just need a quick website. What I like about these service hustles is
they can work just as well on the local level as virtually online. Some of these traditional face-to-face services
like personal trainer and realtor are harder to set up virtually. Don’t overlook the opportunity though to
offer two service levels, maybe one in that local market and another on a virtual basis
that can help bring in more customers. These other ideas are more typically online
like resume builder, voice-over work and online travel agent. While a lot of these service jobs really borrow
from more traditional jobs, I like them as side hustles too because you’ve got maximum
flexibility here in when you work and the hours you commit each week. This next group, teaching, is another catch-all
and one you can do locally or virtually. As your watching the video, these groups,
remember these are to give you ideas. These side hustles aren’t the only ideas
but my hope is that you can find your own perfect work from home business in the categories
or individual ideas. We’ve got ten side hustle ideas here but
this group is really any skill, right? I can think of ten more off the top of my
head like cooking, sports and athletics, really it’s all up to your skills or the ones you
want to develop. These next jobs in marketing are some of my
favorite side hustle ideas because it’s such an important but difficult role for most
business owners. It’s hard enough to create good products
and run a business but then it’s just as important to have that solid marketing plan
to actually make money and that’s where you come in with your business. These range from showing business owners how
to set up their marketing plans to setting and managing product campaigns to even being
a representative for the company. This next group is where I started my own
online career, with freelance writing. The pay potential is good with experience
but most people will start off on the lower end. Still though, there are no startup costs and
this is one where there’s constant demand for work. What I love about these writing ideas is that
it’s a mix of writing for others and writing your own books. I make around $2,000 a month on my 11 self-published
books but they took time to write. Freelance writing for others brings in that
immediate cash as you’re building out your own assets. Those of you in the community knew I couldn’t
leave blogging off our list of side hustle ideas. I think blogging gets a bad rep though so
I’m calling this working in digital real estate. Again, no startup costs here and there is
always going to be demand from people like me that need help running my websites. For just about every role in managing a website,
there is a constant demand for help. From Vas to content creators and social media
managers to a blog manager to tie it all together. The great thing about this group is that the
skills you develop here can be used to develop your own websites and create that passive
income as well. I’ve got a five-video series on creating
and running a blog including the five income sources I use for six-figure income. I’ll leave a link to that playlist in the
video description so check that out. Blogging has truly changed my life and I know
it can do the same for you. OK, that was a long list and you’re probably
thinking how do I choose. Well, after narrowing the list by things that
look interesting and match your skills, there are three questions to ask yourself to find
the perfect hustle. First is, How excited are you about the idea? This is different than which side hustles
interest you or match that list of hobbies. When you look over your shortened list of
potential hustles, which ones make your eyes widen? Which ones make ideas and plans start immediately
flooding into your imagination? Your next question is how much time can you
commit and how long does each particular side hustle take to get started? Some of these are really quick to set up and
you can put in as many or as few hours as you like. For example, selling on Etsy or eBay doesn’t
require a website or really much preparation. You source your products and create a sales
page. Put in as many hours a week as you like to
grow your ecommerce business. On the other hand, any of these coaching or
consulting side hustles will take a lot more setup and less flexibility in the hours you
work each week. You’ll need a website, marketing and a coaching
procedure all before you get your first client. It can be some big money and I’ll show you
how to turn it into even more in our second video on making use of limited time but there
will always be that time commitment. The third question to narrow your list to
that perfect side hustle is do you want a side hustle that requires start-up costs or
one you can start with no money? Most of the work from home businesses in the
list, you can start with just a simple website. That’s all of $3 a month through Blue Host
but some will mean buying supplies and equipment. I’m thinking here of the creative side hustles
like photography, t-shirts and some of the online selling hustles where you’ll need
to buy inventory first. These three questions should help you narrow
that list of 101 side hustles down to a few or even one perfect work from home business. If you want my 4-4-3 code to becoming a millionaire,

  1. Don't start your own side hustle business without watching this 😲 My 4-4-3 Code for Becoming a Millionaire❗ https://youtu.be/MIpbkkuPFZ0
    The characteristics and habits you need to develop to be successful in ANY business idea!

  2. Thanks Joseph! The truth is no matter what method you choose, to start making anything significant it takes a lot of time up front to understand the trade inside out, especially for blogging. freelance and fivr probably is the fastest way to make money if you have the skills. It's really down to whether you are doing something that impacts one person (freelancing) or a lot of people (youtube, blogging). The latter takes a long time to build.

  3. Wish I had this video when I started learning about side hustles. Would have saved me a ton of time!

  4. I'd like to start by saying I luv your videos. You've taught me a lot about the Market. I sell on eBay, just started selling books on Amazon and I day and swing trade in the market. Been doing so for about 2 years now. My gross is about 3500 a week which translates to about 800-1,000 in my pocket. Just thought I'd share maybe some inspiration for someone else I started knowing nothing.

  5. No matter who you are I guarantee there is a side hustle out there that you can make great money from and that you will love doing. So many options!
