Earning money doing something you love is the dream- it doesn’t feel like work and allows you to live comfortably, what could be better? Whether you’re looking for a side hustle to earn some extra pocket money or you’re hoping to switch careers and go full times, there are lots of ways to earn money from home doing the things you love. Here are some ideas!
Beauty and Fashion
If you have a penchant for all things fashion and beauty, there are lots of ways to earn money from your interest. The first one would be to write a blog, while it can take time to get established it’s something that can be started as a fun and enjoyable hobby. You get to share your thoughts and opinions on different products, share outfit ideas, tips and tricks and connect with like-minded people. In time, sponsors will begin to contact you for paid opportunities meaning you get to earn money doing something you love. If you love clothes and makeup, another fun business idea could be buying and selling. You could source makeup from wholesalers and sell it for a profit- with Christmas around the corner you could bundle items together and package it up to sell as gifts. You could buy clothes again from wholesalers or even scour charity shops and boot fares for bargains and sell them on places like eBay for a profit. If you’re selling items in bulk, couriers like Shiply often offer cheaper prices meaning more profit for you. Another option would be to get qualified and become a makeup artist or fashion stylist!
Are you the crafty and creative type? If you’re able to take some raw materials and turn them into a stunning finished product then there’s an opportunity to make some money! It could be jewelry, candles, bath and beauty products. Again with Christmas coming up, people will be looking for these kinds of things for gifts, although of course, they will sell throughout the year too. It could be paper products like cards and wedding invitations. It could even be digital designs, things like logos, website banners, and clip art all sell very well on sites like Etsy. If you’re not especially creative but still want to get involved in something like this, how about creating things like hampers? You could buy baskets, paper shred, and cellophane and then fill them with a selection of items based on a theme. It’s an easy way to make a profit and they make excellent gifts so will fly off the (digital) shelves!
If you have a skill and want to pass this on to others, why not become a tutor? You could have clients come to your home, or in some cases, you could offer Skype video chats so you can work with anyone in the world. It could be cooking, baking, music, homework help, nutrition advice. Whatever it is you have a skill for, someone out there will be looking to learn it!
