We all have some passion projects that we want to pursue in our lifetime, but usually, we don’t have the time or money because of our jobs and careers. We are strong believers that everyone should pursue their passion, but responsibly. If you need a side-job to accomplish your dreams than that is what you should get. However, it’s even better when your side-jobs is your passion. If you’ve ever wondered if you could manage your full-time job and have your dream gig as a side-job, you came to the right place.
Of course, we won’t go over every single job, but we will try to cover the most interesting and popular ones. So, without further ado, here are the best side businesses that you can pursue while working full-time.
You no longer need a TV show or newspaper to market products. Everything is done online and if you have enough followers on social media, you can earn a substantial amount of money by marketing other companies on your profiles. Build a follower base, if you haven’t already, and you will be approached by brands looking to advertise on your platform. For example, an Instagram account with 100 000 followers can earn anywhere from $500 to $5000 per post. If that doesn’t sound lucrative, we don’t know what does.
Web design is a dream side-job. There are more and more websites popping up every day and that won’t stop anytime soon. You can do web design completely online as a freelancer. You just need to take a couple of courses to catch up with what is popular in modern design and you’ll be good to go. We are not saying it will be easy, but with a demand for web designers growing each day, you won’t have any problem getting your chance.
Not everyone can become a comedian, but if you have a knack for comedy, then we are glad to inform you that this is a great side-job. We all know that comedians aren’t paid that well in the beginning, so it will be lunacy to leave your full-time job to pursue your passion of becoming a comedian. But if you do it as a side-job and slowly build up your audience, then one day you might become big and support yourself through comedy. Who knows, comedy booking agents are always looking for the next Dave Chappelle.
Podcasting is similar to comedy. A great passion project, but the beginnings can be tough. While we believe that you have what it takes to run a successful podcast, first, you’ll have to attract an audience. In addition to doing your regular job this won’t be that taxing, but if you start podcasting full-time immediately you might come to a harsh realization. Podcasting is a great source of income as a side business. Sure, once you get your listeners it can become a full-time job, but until then enjoy talking to interesting people and earning a nice amount.
Last on our list is a blogger. If you are skillful in a certain area and know how to express yourself through writing, then blogging is a great chance to earn some side cash and have fun while doing it. As with any creative job, it won’t happen overnight, but if put out great content regularly at some point your blog will blossom.
And that is all from us. We hope that you found some of these suggestions interesting. Remember that success won’t come overnight, but if you work hard enough and improve your comedy, designer or podcasting skills constantly, they might even become your full-time job.
