Money from home

Having a full-time job is something most of us are aiming at. There is no reason, however, not to try and earn some extra pocket money. What is wonderful about having a side gig, is the fact that you can drop it and pick it up whenever you see fit.
Additionally, should it crawl under your skin and thus make you fall in love with it, you can always look for more job opportunities online, as you are striving towards finding your niche – you never know what life’s got in store for you. Here are some jobs that won’t interfere to much with your main profession


If you excel at something, be it playing an instrument, solving math problems, or languages, and own a quality set of people skills, this might be just the job for you. With the help of the Internet, you can offer online lectures for a fee, no matter what area is in question. If you prefer meeting students in person, however, you can earn as much as $40 an hour for making home visits. When it comes to part-time tutoring, your target group should be schoolkids.

Sell unused stuff and beyond

If you are a bit of a hoarder (like many of us are), you could probably make a small fortune by selling those items. Think about what you actually need, deep down inside, we all know what those things are.
Approach this with the when-have-I-used-this-the-last-time philosophy, if it’s been years, you should probably sell it. From that point, you could even specialize in selling on eBay – find quality items at low prices and generate extra income.



It has never been easier to earn money by writing than it is now – if you have a knack for it, go freelance! If you don’t mind following instructions, try yourself out at content writing, if not, perhaps look for your niche in articles and blogs.
The main perk here is that you can do this job as a digital nomad – someone who uses their income while traveling, in order to pay for their expenses.


By merely uploading your photos from anywhere in the world, you can enjoy a cool side gig and all the benefits it can offer you. Incorporate this part-time job with freelance writing, and you got yourself a neat travel blog. Should travelling grow on you, you can always focus your life as a professional towards this type of a gig.

Online trading

The stock market has undergone a huge change, with the introduction of the world of the Internet. Nowadays, you can join in on platforms such as Forex and Binary options with little or no initial investment and enjoy the mild learning curve towards success. You can learn more about binary options here.

Web design

Being a website designer is a really cool way to earn some extra cash. With a great deal of courses available online, you can learn how to make template websites for larger companies. However, web design is quite a different type of a gig.
While, as a web designer you need to own the skillset of a website designer, there is far more to it than this. The way web design works is, you create your own website, but you are also in charge of all the content on it. What this offers is a ton of space for marketing – an insanely beneficial way to earn money.

All of the mentioned side gigs can easily be done in addition to your full time job, you just need to adjust to being efficient. Great sources of a bit of extra income, these part-time opportunities can turn out more than useful.
