If you’re going to start a side hustle (ie, a job in addition to your full-time job), it needs to be lucrative. While you can make extra money taking online surveys, it usually won’t amount to anything greater than coffee money. Here, I’m showing you the highest-paying side hustles you can start today that are guaranteed to bring in substantial income each month. And hey, if you work really hard, you may even be able to quit your full-time job! A life of freedom and being your own boss?! Heck yes!
Are you wondering how to find work from home jobs that aren’t scams, selling to your friends or taking endless amounts of online surveys?
Going about how to find work from home jobs is tricky, but it is possible. I’ve been working from home (doing various jobs) for over five years! My income has varied; but it’s always been a full-time income each year.
I get asked pretty frequently how I’m able to bring in a full-time income from home as a stay-at-home mom to three little kids. My oldest is in kindergarten, my middle child is in pre-school five days a week (half days), and my youngest is at home with me (she’s one!).
I’ve never worked more than 15-20 hours per week on my blog (it’s usually much, much less), HOWEVER I have been blogging for over three years now! So, if you want to make money blogging, you have to stick with it! I always recommend new bloggers do one thing every single day that relates to blogging. Over time, these small things add up 😊
That’s the secret to success: Longevity.
I usually do a tiny bit of blogging tasks early in the morning (maybe 10 minutes), and my major “blog time” is when my older two are in school/pre-school and my baby is napping (about two hours, if I’m lucky). Every once in a while, I’ll work at night. But to be honest my brain doesn’t function that well at night, ha. I’m definitely at my peak in the morning!
Are you a brand new blogger?! I started my blog three years ago and was able to quit my job after 2 1/2 years of blogging part-time. My results are average; you could very well be making thousands per month after one year, or it could take you five years to see results. Keep at it. Hard work pays off and results will come. For those just getting started, here are my best tips for brand new bloggers.
I’ve been blogging for three years and the most common question I am asked is how to quit your job to blog full-time. This guide will show you exactly how you can start a blog and make a plan to replace your current income from your full-time job so you can one day quit. Sound good?! Let’s get started!
Do you browse Pinterest in your free time? Do you want to work from home? And not just work from home, but actually run a super profitable business from home? If so, I highly recommend becoming a Pinterest virtual assistant.
Welcome to March’s blogging income report! I started my blog in September of 2014 and have shared every single income report since then. You can see them all here!
For the first year, most of my income came from freelance writing. Slowly but surely, though, my blog income started increasing and I was able to drop nearly all of my freelance work. I’m currently earning $2,500+ per month strictly from my blog and don’t see it slowing down any time soon!
Now, this did not happen overnight. I thought about starting a blog and finally about one month later took the plunge. I then worked on one thing every single evening after my kids were in bed. Sometimes I’d spend five minutes on it, sometimes five hours. But every night, I did something.
If you’re thinking of starting a blog but aren’t quite sure what your niche would be, I recommend just using your own name as your domain name. With Bluehost, you’ll get your domain name for free! By using your name, YOU are your brand and you can change your blog as you please. You aren’t trapped in a niche because you chose “Sarahscookingblog.com” or something like that 🙂
Now, onto March’s blogging income report.
Ready to make money blogging? Blogging is the absolute best way to make money from home.
I am a SAHM to three little girls (I recently quit my full-time job to stay at home with them!) and make $2,500+ each month from my blog. I started my blog in September 2014, made my first $100 within five months, and quit my job after a little more than two years of blogging.
Now, I blog about 1-5 hours per week. That’s it. The rest of my time is spent with my daughters and husband.
If you want to change your life and start making money blogging, here is my guaranteed guide to get you where you need to be.
You’re not alone.
There have been so many times in my own blogging journey when I’ve felt daunted by what I was learning and struggled to overcome challenges like increasing my traffic and income in ways that matched my brand and values.
Overall, blogging has been one of those incredible “pinch me” parts of my life, though. I can hardly believe I get to do something I love so much, earn money from home, and be part of such a special community.
For those of you who don’t know, I recently (as in one month ago) quit my job to stay at home with my kids and blog full-time! But, let me tell you a secret: I don’t actually blog “full-time.” It’s more like 5 hours per week, and I average $2,500 per month!
But it isn’t always easy, and the fast-changing nature of the blogosphere means I can’t ever stop learning how to be a better blogger.
I’ve found my blog really thrives when I’m growing in my skills, connecting with others who get the work I’m doing, and pushing myself to try new things and improve my weak areas.
I make a point of prioritizing my growth as a blogger, and one of the best ways I’ve found is by learning from other experienced bloggers who’ve mastered a particular aspect of blogging.
Problem is, it can get pretty pricey to buy all the new books or courses that cover the topics I’m looking for.
Which is why I am over the moon excited about the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit (for sale Monday, April 3rd through Tuesday, April 4th only).
It’s a digital package crammed full of brilliant tools to help you grow your blog, work smarter & make more money.
(But for way less than you’d normally spend!)
The team at Ultimate Bundles has put together the best resources on ALL the topics that matter to bloggers, like mastering social media, monetization, creating and selling products, time management and productivity, nurturing an email list, and so much more.
Here’s what you get:
33 eCourses & audio files
5 printable packs
In total, the toolkit includes over $3,600 of blogging tips, strategies, tutorials and amazingly practical information and ideas. Plus you get free bonus offers worth $1250+, with 15 tools and services to help you run your blog.
But the truly amazing part? They’re selling it for a crazy 97% off of regular price!
I know, it sounds too good to be true, but I promise it’s not. Ultimate Bundles has been around a long time and creating these packages is really their thing (they’ve sold over 180,000 of them on all sorts of topics), so you can trust this is the real deal.
The most important detail, though, is that this toolkit is available for just two days. After Tuesday night, April 4th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.
I’d hate for you to miss out, so click here to learn more or buy the bundle.
It’s even backed by a full 30-day money-back happiness guarantee, so you can make sure it’s right for you. Get what you need for your healthy lifestyle.
What would you do with an extra $500 every month? I personally would save half of it ($250), go out to eat a few extra times each month ($100), and put the remaining amount ($150) towards debt.
Below are five ways you can make an extra $500 a month. Combine all of them for an extra $2,500!
