We all can use a little extra money on the side. Creating a side hustle is a great way to generate additional income, save money, and achieve financial freedom. There are several avenues through which you can make that happen. Maybe you want to make extra money to get out of debt sooner than later or save money for your next family vacation. Keep reading for ideas on how to make an extra $100-$500+/month.

1. Saving is Earning

Save more and spend less is a great way to grow your income. Saving as much as $500-1,000 per month will yield 6,000-12,000 for the year.  By Joining Saving Money Challenge, you can save $500 in 30 days starting with just $1!  The amount saved doesn't have to be large, but a little put in each month would pile up to an appreciable sum over the long run.

You can earn upwards of 1,000 per month renting your home/room on Airbnb. 

Airbnb renting isn’t for everyone, but for those willing to invest the time, money, and energy to make it a worthwhile endeavor, it definitely pays off. If you don't have the time but still want to make extra cash for your room or entire home, Consider hiring a Airbnb CoHost such as Cohost Partners.

If you create 10 ebooks at $10 each and sold 100 books per month, that’s 12,000 residual income in your bank account annually.


14.Domain flipping 

Recently, I searched godaddy.com to purchase a domain name for my side hustle and it costed $2,500!!!! After further research I learned, you can  purchase an available domain name on sites such as godaddy.com for $10-$15 (yr) and resell it for upwards of 2,000 or more. If you purchased 20 domains, you have the potential to earn 40,000! 


15.Credit Card Rewards

Once you've mastered personal finance ( debt elimination and monthly cash flow plan) Credit card reward programs are a great way to earn cash back or points for free travel. In the past year, I've earned 1,000 cash back and free travel to Puerto Rico and Brazil. I would not advice to go into debt to earn cash back or points but paying bills with credit cards and paying credit card balance at the end of the month with cash you were already spending is  a credit way to leverage credit and earn a little extra cash on the side. With Credit card such as Chase Freedom you can earn $200 dollars cash back and 1.5% cash back on all purchases with no annual fee.

16.Rent Your Car out on Turo

Welcome to the Airbnb for Cars! If you have a car you're not using, why not create extra cash flow by renting it out on Turo! Before you list your vehicle, know that Turo does have some criteria. This includes:
  • The car must be legally registered in any state but New York.
  • The car must be no more than 12 years old.
  • The car must meet Turo’s insurance requirements.
  • The car must have less than 130,000 miles on it.

17.Amazon FBA program

Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) is a service provided by Amazon that provides storage, packaging, and shipping assistance to sellers. The program allows sellers to ship their merchandise to an Amazon fulfillment center, where items are stored in warehouses until they are sold.
On average, Amazon Sellers make upwards of 1,000+ a month. Selling on Amazon is pretty easy. You set up an Amazon Seller Account and download a amazon scanner app (such as Profit Bandit) and your ready to make some cash. 


The process is really this simple:
  1. Source products to sell through retail stores, thrift stores, or even from around your house.
  2. List products on Amazon seller account and set the prices (typically the product details and pictures are already there fore you)
  3. Ship all of the items to Amazon at one time.
  4. Amazon finds the buyers, packages and ships each individual item, collects payment, deducts their fees, and then sends you money twice per month.

18.Real estate 

WholeSaler
Real estate wholesaling is the process through which an individual, the ‘wholesaler,’ acquires a contract from the seller of the property and assigns that same contract to an end buyer. The Wholesaler makes an "assignment fee" which could be anywhere from $500-50k depending on the size of the deal. Wholesaling is considered one of the best short-term investment strategies and is a great way for individuals to break into the real estate investing industry. This is because wholesaling does not require significant capital to get started. Wholesaling can also help beginners learn quickly about the real estate market as well as gain invaluable negotiation skills.


Bird-Dog
A "bird-dog" is nothing more than a lead that YOU pass along to someone who may or may not be able to do something with that property. Most people pay a standard fee for referrals. For example I pay anywhere from $500-1000 for leads that I end up buying and selling.

19.Get paid to Advertise on your car

Companies like Wraptify will pay drivers to put advertisements on their cars. Depending on your commute, location, and the campaign, you can earn between $100-$1000 a month for each car wrap.

20.Petsitting/dogwalk 

As a dog walker, sitter or boarder, you offer up your services to dog owners looking to get someone to care for their pooch. Sign up with Rover, and get connected with pet owners looking for your services. According to Roverdog walkers who use the site to promote their business can expect to make up to 1,000 per month.

21. Drive for Uber or Lyft

Don't feel comfortable driving strangers in your vehicle? UberEatsPostmates, DoorDash are equally equitable alternatives.

  • Calendar Planners
  • Meal Planners
  • Financial Planners
  • Diet and/or fitness planners

Debt-Free: How I paid off 33,000 in 36 Months







“You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.”
― Dave Ramsey

Debt elimination  is paramount to creating the freedom you need to live a fulfilled life! In July 2009, my colleague introduced me to Dave Ramsey's The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness . I was skeptical of this Debt-free "thing" and was convinced as a child I would "always" have debt. I actually refused to buy the book because I was sure  it was a scam! I was living check to check and struggling to stay afloat. With Nothing to lose (literally),  I checked-out The Total Money Makeover (TMM) from my local library. After reading the TMM, I became a Dave Ramsey follower and was "gazelle" intense. 

The TMM principles are based on getting out of debt using a Debt Snowball:


1) List your debts in order from smallest total payoff balance to the largest.

2)Get your debt snowball rolling by paying as much as you can on the smallest balance.


3)Once you've paid something off, move on to the next debt on the list.




This book changed my life!


How did I do it?


1.)The "B" word!

Budget! There, I said it! Before TMM I would loosely write bills out as they were due, but didn't have a consistent, systemic, methodical plan for budgeting. I created a easy monthly budget in excel (a simple pen and paper will work too!) that included income and expenses at the end of every month for the following month. I used debit card and receipts to track my spending weekly. Budgeting is simply "telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went." Now there are a plethora of apps available to help keep track of your spending at your fingertips.

2.)Sell Pizza!

I didn't sell pizza, but I did pick up a second job (sometimes working 70hrs per week). It was tough and exhausting but the reward of becoming debt-free superseded everything. Hard work and sacrifice are guaranteed ways to get out of debt and stay debt-free! Nowadays if you have an operational vehicle or extra space in your home you can make a little extra cash with Uber and/or Airbnb.


3) Conduct  Plastic Surgery!

Think Nip/Tuck meet credit cards! This was tough, and initially I put my credit cards in the freezer. But After a couple of weeks, I grabbed  a pair of scissors and cut up my Master card!

R.I.P

4) Get Creative!

I sold everything I could (except the kid)! Ebay, Craigslist, Amazon, Facebook Marketplace and Offer-up are great tools to generate funds to pay down your debt. I also became a coupon DiVa. I searched store websites and ads for deals before shopping and used Groupon for dining out.


In 36 months,  I paid off $33,000 in debt: student loan ($15,000) , car loan ($13,000) and credit card debt ($5,000). The 7 steps introduced in Dave's Plan are simple, practical methods toward money management and using income to build wealth.

How bad do you want to be free? Not just debt-free, but free from life's burden? Free to live a life worth living? Free to pursue your wildest dreams? Free to be! 




As a result of becoming debt free, I fired my boss, moved from Savannah to Atlanta, and went on my first international mission trip to Haiti. To date I've visited 20 + countries and counting.



It’s 2020 and I continue living a debt-free lifestyle following the principles I learned in the TMM

Currently, I've embarked on a journey toward a minimalist lifestyle to achieve my dreams of quitting my job to travel the world for one year! This is what Financial Freedom affords you...Time &Freedom!  




If you will live like no one else, later you can live like no one else.”
