Americans are side-hustling. In fact, more Americans today are working multiple jobs than at any point in the last 20 years.
It should come as no surprise. Pursuing a side-hustle can net you thousands of dollars in supplementary income every month. Selling or renting property, for example, can earn people as much as $7,000 a month.
But real estate is only one example. With the introduction of ride-sharing apps like Uber and freelance websites like Freelancer and Upwork, Americans have more ways to make extra money than ever before. Take advantage of it!
These are the most lucrative side-hustles, along with their median monthly income potential:
- Real estate: $500
- Ride-sharing: $350
- Fitness training: $200
- Freelance work: $200
- Ecommerce: $150
- Tutoring: $150
- Computer repair: $100
- Housecleaning: $100
- Photography or videography: $100
- Survey-taking: $100
Pursuing supplementary income doesn’t have to be time-consuming either. Roughly one in five side-hustlers work on their second job while on the clock at their primary job. Selling or renting property is a passive revenue stream, growing your money with minimal time and effort involved.
But it can have profound effects. Two-thirds of Americans start a side hustle to gain extra spending money, while nearly 50 percent do it to pay off credit card debt.
With a little research, you can be one of them.
