Online Side Hustles for Moms 2020!
It's 2020, and if one of your goals is to make more money this year, this post should help you achieve that goal. As moms, it can be hard to make extra money or start a side hustle. When we consider spending extra time away from our kids or the cost of childcare while we're hustling, it may not even be worth it. Fortunately, the internet has opened up lots of opportunities for us to make money from our homes. Here are some online side hustles for moms in 2020. Don't worry; none of these include blogging or anything you would need to do on social media, but if you're interested in blogging let me know, and I'll write a separate post on making money through blogging.
Online Customer Service Associate.
I think all of us know someone who works as an online customer service associate. You would need a quiet space where you can work undisturbed for this position, but besides some privacy, all you will need would be an internet connection.
Start a Dropshipping Business.
I first heard about dropshipping a few years ago on a podcast, and it immediately piqued my interest. It's an excellent option for anyone interested in starting an online retail business without inventory. You can learn all about dropshipping on YouTube and it's the type of business that you don't have to even share with others that you're doing. It requires some time investment for starting up but can turn into passive income which is always good for us moms. Most people use Shopify but you can use other platforms, just do your research first.
Sell an Online Course.
If you have an area of specialty that people are always asking you to teach them, then you can create a course teaching it. This is one of my plans for this year, I love the fact that it's passive income so I can spend time with my family and doing things I enjoy once I set it up. You can use Udemy to set up your course.
You can both train and find work as a transcriptionist online. You will have to take a typing test to determine your proficiency, and pay is usually based on that. The faster you type, the more you can earn.
With many businesses now online-based, they need assistants who are also online. As a virtual assistant, you will do the same job an executive or administrative assistant. Search job boards like Indeed for virtual assistant jobs or you can reach out to small business owners. Many of us bloggers hire virtual assistants to help us with admin tasks.
You've probably realized that audiobooks are getting increasingly popular. Many of these books aren't read by the actual author but by a narrator. You can make money working as a voice-over audiobook narrator.
Create and sell printables and downloadable products.
If you have a knack for design, you can sell printables and other downloadable products on Etsy. You can sell anything from meal planning sheets to presets and planner inserts.
Become an online English teacher.
You can become an English teacher to kids in China (and other countries) in your spare time. Sites like VIPKIDS pay you, and you're able to create your schedule.
I hope these are all helpful ideas, and you're able to find a side hustle that suits your interests. Remember to vet out any company you decide to work with on the Glassdoor website to ensure they're legitimate and hear what other people's experience was working with them. Any company asking you to pay upfront is usually a scam. Good luck and send me a matcha latte when you start making all that extra money.
