Ways to Make Money on the Side 1


One of the easiest ways to offer your skills and freelance. If you are a skilled bookkeeper, great with Photoshop, social media, or any task that others need this might be the place for you. You can look for local Facebook business groups, and post on Linked In Looking for opportunities. Popular places I’ve tried include Fivver and Upwork. I’ve found success on both Fivver and Upwork but I found with Fivver I had to have really cheap (and not manageable pricing) to get some initial reviews. With Upwork, you have the opportunity to bid on projects which landed in a few small contracts for me.

Direct Sales / Network Marketing

Okay hear me out, and don’t close this blog. This can be a way you earn extra revenue. Full disclosure I’m an Epicure Ambassador and I earn sales from commission of products I sell. I sell gluten-free, healthy spices, meal solutions, and also cookware and make 20% commission or more products. There are other bonuses and ways to make as well including sharing the business with a team to freebies like a free shirt (I earned in June 2023) to a free trip to Mexico I earned last year.

If you are interested in becoming an Epicure ambassador or just need advice on different direct sales channels where you can earn some income contact me.
