It seems like everyone says that having a college degree is the best way to get into high-paying jobs. But did you know that even without a degree, there’s still a chance to earn really good money? They’re called side hustles. They’re the jobs you can do outside of the 9-5, so you can quit your day job once you start making more with your side hustle.
These are jobs that not only bring in money but also allow you the flexibility to work from the comfort of your home. With just some skills and qualifications, you can get a job online and start earning money. They’re great options you can do where you want and when you want.
Fill Out Online Surveys
You can find plenty of survey sites online, but I suggest trying Survey Junkie since they are a legitimate site. All you have to do is give your opinion or insight on their products or services. After taking the surveys, they’ll pay you cash via Paypal. Super easy right?
Start a Blog
This is one of my favorite side hustle because it’s what I do full-time. I’ve been able to make over $18,335.87 from blogging in just a month.
If you’re planning on starting your blog, it’s actually a great way to make scalable income.

Be an Amazon Affiliate
If you start a blog, a great way to monetize it is by being an Amazon affiliate. You promote someone else’s product on your site and get paid for it. Whenever someone buys the product through your link, you’ll get a commission.
We learned all about how to do this by taking an affiliate marketing course called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing (click to read our review of the course.)
