When you need to find extra money to make ends meet or to save up for a big purchase, setting up a side hustle is a great idea. Side hustles need very little upfront investment and they’re perfect for operating in your spare time. Here are three ideas you could get started on today.


Become a Personal Trainer

If you’re a fitness nerd, then your rock-hard abs, bulging biceps and sculpted behind are the perfect advertisement for your services.People are always looking for ways to drop some pounds and tone up, but left to their own devices they often don’t get very far before they give up.This is where you come in. You can provide friendly support and put clients through their paces in their home or at the park.

Another service you can offer is being a gym buddy. Gyms are intimidating places for newcomers and getting to grips with strange equipment can be a huge obstacle on the road from flabby to fit. But with you by their side, your clients will have the confidence to stick with the program and they’ll be building shiny new muscle in no time.

Print up some leaflets and order a stack of business cards, then head to your nearest Weight Watchers or similar meeting and grab your first clients. Don’t forget to join local Facebook weight loss groups too.


Start a Blog or Website

Absolutely anybody can start their own money making blog, even the technologically challenged. Start-up costs are minimal, you can be up and running for less than $20, and with the content management systems available today, all of the hard work is taken care of for you. You won’t need to type a single line of code – promise!

The most popular and most versatile content management system in use is WordPress, and you probably visit sites running WordPress every day. Famous sites like the New York Times, Best Buy, Sony PlayStation, UPS, CNN and even the Rolling Stones website use WordPress, so you’re in good company.

To start a website you just need a domain name (which is the site address like a hosting account to give your site a home on the web, and the WordPress system – which is free.

Make money from your site by creating and selling your own products, earning commission from affiliate sales, running a store, or hosting advertising.


Safe Ride Home Service

Getting home safely after a boozy night out on the town is a huge concern for many women. It shouldn’t be this way but it is. If you’ve got a car and you’re an ultra-reliable person who doesn’t mind ferrying people around in the early hours of the morning, you can set up a safe ride home service.

Contact your insurance provider first to arrange cover as a commercial carrier, then get ready to market your side hustle.Start by letting friends, family and work colleagues know about your ride service and ask them to pass your details around their social networks.Next visit a few local bars and restaurants and get chatting to the staff. Ask if you can leave a stack of business cards or fliers with them.

Encourage customers to leave reviews on your social media accounts because a service like this runs on trust.To make it easy for people to book, you can embed a Google Calendar on your website and let people pre-book their own slots.

These ideas are just a taste of the numerous side hustles that you can set up. With a side hustle the only limitation is your imagination. If these ideas don’t suit you, take a look around the internet and find out what other people are doing, then strike while the iron is hot and get to work.
