Many more parents are looking for superb side hustles to help them generate a bigger income throughout the year. By doing so, it can help them provide their children with the very best in life.
However, the part-time career you choose will more than likely be dependent on your passion, experience and commitment level. If you want to considerably top up your finances in 2019, here are five high-paying side hustles busy mums should consider.
- An e-commerce business
If you want to embark on a career that allows you to take your kids to school and pick them back up again, an e-commerce business could be an ideal venture for you.
However, it can be a steep learning curve initially, as you’ll be responsible for choosing your company’s products, running a website, developing marketing campaigns, and communicating with customers.
Thankfully, there are ways to take some of the hassleout of the process. For example, you could buy wholesale hoodies from a drop shipping supplier, who will store the products on your behalf and send the items directly to your customers’ address.
- Direct Sales
If you’re looking for a venture that allows you to switch off after a task is complete and offers a flexible schedule, direct sales can be a convenient way to make money from your own home at a time that suits you. The good news is, almost anyone can do it, as you do not need any prior experience to get started.
However, thoroughly research a company to ensure you do not become involved in a pyramid scheme. When chosen well, the side hustle could provide an employee with a great sales commission, and many companies often provide cash incentives for recruiting a new seller.
- Teaching or Coaching
If you have knowledge or experience in a specific field, consider becoming a private tutor or coach. For example, if you have mastered a piano or guitar, you could teach private music lessons at a student’s address, which can fit around your home life. There is even an option to teach classes to budding students online, as they can pay a fee to gain access to a lesson.
- Freelance Writing
If you have a flair for the written word and great organisational skills, you could enjoy a great income as a freelance writer. It will allow you to accept freelance writing assignments at your own pace and schedule. You’ll need to adhere to any deadlines set and deliver high-quality content that will complement different clients’ needs and tones of voice.
- Stock Photography
If you are obsessed with taking superb photographs of your children, you could always use your skills to make money. If you have a talent and passion for taking beautiful shots, start snapping photos of beautiful landscapes or objects, which you could potentially sell on various stock photography websites, such as Shutterstock, Fotolia, Alamy, to name just a few. You’ll often receive a fixed percentage for every image downloaded from a website. The more photographs you take, the more money you can make.
