Great Side Hustle Ideas
Here are good ideas you could implement on the side for some extra income as you plan to exit employment and join self-employment.
- Door Dash
Get paid to deliver restaurant food to peoples doorsteps.
How this works is that you drive your own car delivering food from restaurants.
The app developer realized a certain opportunity in the hotel industry. Most restaurants don’t have an in-house delivery system or delivery guys.
They came up with an application that links up restaurants and drivers to assist in delivering food to customers.
You can download the app here. If you are a good driver, you could start earning today.
Similar to Door dash, only that you get to transport people for some fee.
Once you sign up and get accepted by Lyft, you can begin to earn today.
You could use your own car or Lyft can provide one for you.
And you don’t have to work on a daily basis. Work whenever you feel like.
The only thing required is a good functional car and a perfect driver background.
If you have a clean driver’s history, head over to lyft and start earning as you drive.
