With the pandemic causing layoffs, budget cuts, and widespread distress, many people’s finances have taken a hit. In turbulent financial times, I’ve turned to passive income streams and side hustles to stay afloat. Many creative and savvy business owners and individuals are doing the same. From picking up side jobs to starting new businesses, there are many ways to start earning extra income today.
These seven side hustles are easy to start with just a computer, phone, and Wi-Fi connection.
COMMIT TO YOUR ONLINE SHOP
Many people think they can get rich fast with passive income and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Recently, my Etsy store hit an impressive milestone of $100,000 in revenue. I was able to hit this market by committing to my shop for the long-term.
Over the past three years, I’ve worked on my store 5-10 minutes a day, creating new designs and adding listings. I’ve sold an array of digital products online including yoga mats, T-shirts, and mugs. With print-on-demand technology, a seller doesn’t have to create any inventory. You simply supply the design and choose a supplier who will help print, pack, and ship the order on your behalf. Suppliers I have used to offer a broad range of products include Gooten, Printful, Teelaunch, and Printify.
