In this post, I want to describe 7 side-hustles that you can do at home to make money from home without necessarily running it as a full-time business.

It does not mean it’s not hard work but it’s like a side hustle that brings you that extra income while you stay home to take care of your kids.

Most of this ideas are not full-time businesses, this is not the place where I ask you to start a Blog, because I know that Blogging is a full-time job if you want to make a success of it.

These are called side hustles for a reason, they should not detract from you doing what you normally do.

So here we go

1. Freelance writing

If you are what people call a wordsmith, then its time to use your skills to make money from it.

When you go to places like Upwork and freelancer.com you will find that people are posting their Gigs, which is advertising their projects for someone to help them with.

Registering on such sites will give you the opportunity to sell your skills for potential income.

If you are really good at copywriting you can have the opportunity to charge people who need copies written for their products which they want to sell.

Another way you can make money is by registering with sites like Digital Nomads and watching out for companies that are looking to hire writers for their blogs or websites.

The good thing about freelance writing is that you get to choose your own timing and how much work you want to do.
