If you’ve been thinking about earning that extra income on the side but aren’t sure where to start, keep reading for some ideas to get that flexibility and life balance you’re after!
With interest rates rising and the world becoming increasingly expensive, it is becoming more common for parents to return to work sooner than they would prefer after having kids.
However, this doesn’t always have to mean going back into the office – these days, if you have a few hours spare after popping the little ones into bed, you can start your very own side hustle from home.
Many options exist to match your skill set, from online businesses to allowing your creative side to flourish.
So, if you’ve been thinking about earning that extra income on the side but aren’t sure where to start, keep reading for some ideas to get that flexibility and life balance you’re after!
If you love to talk, why not get paid to do it from the comfort of your own home?
You’ll need a laptop and a USB microphone, which you might be able to find for cheap online or at your local op-shop.
The bigger your audience, the bigger the $$, so make sure to share your podcast across your various social media channels, and you might even get paid to sponsor products you love.
An ideal option for mums is to upload a new podcast as often as they like and even record from bed or while nursing – no one will know!
A fantastic way to get your exercise in and meet some cute, furry friends!
Post a few ads in your local community Facebook group/paper explaining all the conditions and costs etc. and wait for the messages to come in!
You’d be surprised how many people don’t often have the time to walk their pets and will pay you to do it! Bring the new bubs along in the stroller, and you’ve got yourself a great side hustle while still spending time with your family.
Make/sell items online
Get your creative juices flowing and create things to sell online!
Websites like Etsy or eBay allow you to have your own business selling anything, from soap to jewellery to art.
Or, if you want to resell your pre-loved clothing, Depop is a great tool to get rid of unwanted items and make some extra cash.
