Every new year brings along new opportunities, and this year is definitely no different. With so many new business opportunities appearing on the market seemingly every day, you should really have no difficulties pinpointing new endeavors and finding new ways to make some extra cash.
Now, if you want to boost your personal finances but you also want to do it in a fun and exciting way, here are some unconventional ways you can make money in 2019 you should definitely check out.
Recharge electric scooters
Believe or not, there are companies, such as Bird & Lime that have made a serious business from renting out electric scooters to interested individuals. Now, you might be wondering how you can use the services they offer to your advantage and earn some extra cash. Well, here’s how. Bird & Lime is always on the lookout for interested individuals who can find the rented scooters that have run out of juice, collect them, charge them overnight and bring them in fresh first thing in the morning so that the company can rent them out again. This fun, “scavenger-hunt” like side hustle promises anywhere from $5 to $10 per scooter, which can account to as much as $100 a day if you manage to be very successful and beat your competition.
Blog or vlog your days away
Blogging and vlogging have become very hot last year, and their popularity is still on the rise. Apparently, for some reason, people enjoy watching other people live their day-to-day lives. Now, if you like writing, you can start your own blog and, once you find the right audience, try becoming an affiliate. On the other hand, if fun things happen to you on a daily basis, you can choose to start your own YouTube channel and provide your audience with daily or semi-daily videos. If you are a vlogger, you can also become an affiliate and choose to present other companies’ products to your audience for a certain commission.
Earn money while having fun
Another interesting side hustle comes in the form of playing online games for some extra cash. In order to be able to do this, you will definitely need a decent computer and a reliable internet connection, but chances are that you already have both of those things. You can cash in o this business opportunity by either playing some of the most popular games and streaming your progress to an interested audience, making various walk-throughs and how-tos or by trying your luck and registering to an online casino. If you’re good at various card and slot games, why not cash in on it and have some fun in the process?
Become a beauty guru
The beauty industry seems to be one of the fastest growing industries currently on the market, with numerous influencers trying to push their products and come up with innovative ways to approach everything beauty-related. So, if style is your name and makeup is your game, use it to your advantage and start hustling. The best part is that you don’t even have to film tutorials and GRWMs (get ready with me), you can just choose to offer your services as a freelance makeup artist to interested individuals from your neighborhood.
Host dinner parties
Hosted dinner parties have become a – somewhat weird – trend on the rise. Nowadays, there are a lot of people interested in attending a hosted dinner party – in a stranger’s home. So, if you have a spacious dining room, enjoy cooking for a lot of people and absolutely love hosting dinner parties, give dis side business idea a go. However, before you list your services on Google My Business, find out which necessary certificates you’ll have to obtain because you’ll be dealing with food, after all.
As you can see, finding an interesting and profitable side hustle nowadays is a piece of cake. You just need to understand what you are good at and use that to generate profit and boost your personal finances. You’d be surprised what some people are willing to pay for in this day and age, which means you will definitely be able to find something fun to do and people who are more than ready to pay you to do it.
