9 Ways To Make Extra Money On The Side

If you’re looking to earn extra income, for whatever reason (vacation, help with debt/bills, want to leave your job, etc.), check out these 9 ways to earn extra money on the side without needing to leave your 9-5.

Delivery/Driving Services
Uber and Lyft have been huge successes for people looking to add income. Uber reports an average income of $25/hr for their drivers. And Lyft reports are about the same.

That doesn’t take into account car expenses (payments, insurance, gas, etc), but even if it’s $15-20/hr, that’s not a bad side gig. Especially when you can log in and drive whenere you want.

Sell/Resell Online
Ebay. Poshmark. Mercari. Offer Up. Facebook Marketplace. All these places are selling platforms. Whether you are buying and selling items or selling your own old stuff. All you need is a couple pictures, a decent description, and a price.

There’s no average earnings with this option. You can make an extra $100 a month or a couple thousand a month.

It’s all in what and how much you list and the time you’re willing to put in. For some, this is a great part time job, and others this is their full time career

Create A Product
Food, crafts, clothing, etc.
Making something that someone wants to buy.
If you can cook, meal prep services are growing.
Creating a craft and selling it on Etsy is a grest option
Making clothing or apparel and selling it on Etsy, Instagram or Shopify has done great for people

Dog walking/sitting
Rover is a service that focuses on your pet. Dog walking, day care, home check ins,  boarding and more.

Rover books you in the neighborhoods you want to work in and at the times you’re available.

You can make anywhere from $20-85/hr depending on your service

Food Delivery

Instacart, Door Dash, Uber Eats, etc.
Like Uber and Lyft, this has been a huge success for people looking to add income. It’s basically picking up food and dropping it off to people.

Some services are picking up food from restaurants or fast food chains and some services are actually going food shopping for customers and delivering the food.

Average pay for these are about $25, and lkke Uber/Lyft, you make your own schedule

No New Years Resolution

We are less than 1 month away from the new year (and new decade!), and with that comes New Years Resolutions.

Whether its losing weight, getting in shape, eating healthier, traveling more, starting a business, or anything else, we like to use January 1st as this magical starting point.

But, why?

Why wait for January 1st, when it’s early December and you already know what you want to do or be or accomplish??

January 1st is no more special than December 15th or 20th or 31st.

Don’t waste a month just to, maybe, feel that motivation on the 1st. Start now. Start your process today.

I know we are right in the middle of the holiday season and things get busy. Parties, and family events, and shopping and everything else can seem to get in the way.

But, really, how much time are we talking about? 4 days? 6 days? Where you can’t 100% focus on your goals. That’s fine. What about the other 15-20 days left in this month??

We are ALL busy.

But, no one is 24/7 busy. No one.

It can be a 20min window to get a workout in because you have fitness goals. Or an hour at night to work on your side business. We have the time. Even with EVERYTHING that is currently going on, we have the time.

Being too busy is an excuse. Waiting for the new year is bs.

Don’t waste the next couple weeks waiting for January 1st.

Start your resolution today.

It’s YOUR Social Media

A small part of my talk with Rob Riley was about social media/media consumption, and the importance keeping it as positive as possible.

1LIFE1YOU Podcast Episode 31 w/ Rob Riley

The news makes its money from getting views, and with that showing you all the bad or horrible things happening draws more views. Think about it… we all look at the cars that crashed on the roadside..

And that’s what the news knows. The negative draws. But, that can have an impact on how you go about your day and life.

Negativity leads to more negativity.

The same goes for social media. If your feed/timeline is full of negativity, complaining, arguing, that will seep into your own life.

But the coolest thing about social media is, YOU CONTROL IT.

If John is posting negative things on his own social media, and you’re tired of seeing it.. unfollow him. Boom! All lf his negative posts are gone.

And this goes for EVERYONE. Friends, family, coworkers, everyone.

It’s your platforms. You build and create what you see and not see. And if they have a problem, oh well.

Your own peace of mind is more important than their follower count.

Try it out. Go through whatever platform you are on, and unfollow or delete anyone that constantly post negative things, and watch how much better you’ll feel as you start scrolling through your own feed.

Social media isn’t bad. It’s only a platform. People are the ones who choose how to use it.

THE GOAL IS TO BE HEALTHY FOR LIFE

When I’m talking about health and fitness, I’m not speaking about trendy diets, get fit quick plans, or the bs you see on social media. (Unless it’s to say, don’t do those things!)

Listen to episode 28 of the #1LIFE1YOUPodcast

I am talking about being fit and healthy for life. A lot of us have 1, 2, 3 more lives to live. Those years are what I’m speaking on.

When being selfish is ok

A quick story from someone that DM’d me on Instagram.

You can listen to episode 27: being selfish is ok

It may sound messed up to some and some may not understand, but she was telling me about how she has been taking her own time back. And being more selfish with who or what she gives her time too.

The Pants That Fit

2 minute read

I got a message a couple days ago. And i ask the things I always ask, “How was the week? Good? Bad? Great?”

And, she says that she’s having a good week. Workouts going well. Food is getting better. And she goes on to tell me that she had a NON SCALE VICTORY that she didn’t plan on having so soon.

The goal, that she was hoping to accomplish in October, was to fit into these pants that she had that didn’t fit.

She said, talking to a friend about vacation coming up, and she wanted to go try on these pants…

And… THEY FIT!

Now, I think that’s awesome. But, it is a risk she took. It could have gone a couple ways.

1. They fit! The hard work she’s been doing is being seen.

2. They don’t fit…

A) Gets discouraged by the effort of the last 2 months

B) Motivates her to go harder

But, they fit! And that’s a really big win. The confidence it builds. The reassurance of the process. The knowing that the hard work is paying off.

You may not always see it. The scale may tell you something different on different days. But, how you feel. How does your clothes fit you. They are big markers on your progress.
