With easily accessible apps and changing workforce demands, picking up a side hustle is becoming a normal way of life for many. You might have considered finding a way to make money in your free time or picking up a freelancing gig, but how do you go about selecting a hustle that fits your lifestyle and taste?

The key to picking a good side hustle is knowing your strengths. Side hustles are meant to be an easy way to make fast cash, so you don’t want to choose something that’ll stress you out or feel like a drag.

We put together a list of side hustles to help you think through what might work best for you:

Renting Out Your Car

First it was spare bedrooms (Airbnb), but now people are actually renting out their cars. So, if driving for Uber or Lyft isn’t your thing, you can rent out your wheels using apps like Turo which allows people to rent cars by the day or the hour. They even handle the insurance.


If you’re crafty, why not start an Etsy account?

Using Etsy gives you a platform to sell just about anything — including clothing, prints, jewelry, and more. It’s a neat way to get a creative hustle going.


If people are willing to pay $5 for it, you can find it advertised on Fiverr. You can offer services such as graphic design, tutoring, writing, and more.

Of course, you can charge more than $5 for services, and it’s a great site to utilize if you have some miscellaneous skills you’d like to put to work.

Sell Used Clothing

Take an honest look into your closet, and you’ll realize just how many clothes you aren’t wearing anymore. If you’ve Konmaried lately (or need to), you may have even more to thank for their service.

Rather than tossing them out, consider selling them on sites like Poshmark and Mercari. Each app has different rules when it comes to shipping and how much of a fee they take, so make sure to do your research before signing up.
