First let’s talk about side hustles…it’s basically side jobs for extra money. There are a lot of different ways that you can make extra money: pet sitting to answering surveys online to starting an online business. The possibilities are endless!
I started my work from home career with 4 real ways of working from home online without investing money. I was able to save money from those jobs to start my blog (which earns me way more money now). While I didn’t have to invest money, I definitely invested my time and energy into learning new skills!
#1 – Make money fast with User Testing – Earn $3 – $10 per test
User Testing pays you to review specific websites or apps from a computer, phone, or tablet. You have to record your screen and voice during the test while you offer feedback to questions from the company. User Testing pays 7 days (to the minute!) after you finish the test.
#2 – Make money online selling t-shirts to Print on Demand (POD) sites
You can design your own t-shirts online for free, and then upload and sell them through different Print on Demand websites. They beauty of selling t-shirts this way is that the t-shirts aren’t ordered and created until a customer orders.
Did you know you can sell POD t-shirts on Etsy and Amazon?!
Even if you are a beginner and have never designed a shirt before in your life, you can learn everything you need to know watching YouTube videos and following Facebook Groups. This work from home job may take a little more time to start earning money, but once you learn the ropes the payout will be much bigger!
Check out one of my designs that I have up for sell on Amazon!
#3 – Make extra cash working from home with Rev Transcription
Rev is a transcription company that hires transcriptionist with no experience. If you have a strong typing speed then this could be a great fit for you. As a transcriptionist with Rev you will need a headset, computer, and internet access. You will listen to audio recordings and type out the contents into a word document.
#4 – Earn Extra Cash with Leapforce
Leapforce is my favorite place to help people get started working from home. They hire people to evaluate search engines online and on social media. The test can be very tough to pass, but it’s totally worth the effort to land a job with Leapforce.
I love the flexibility that Leapforce offers. You basically log-in and work when it is convenient for you to work. This makes it really easy to work around nap times, school pick-up, and toddler meltdowns (if you know what I mean!).
#5 – Make Easy Extra Money Teaching ESL to Chinese Students
Teaching ESL online to students half way around the world is becoming more and more popular! You can sign up to teach English to Chinese students with pre-planned lessons provided for you. You may need a few props for each lesson, but it’s usually things that you have around your house (shoe, stuffed animals, fruit, etc.).
VIP Kid is one of the top 10 work from home companies! You need a Bachelor’s Degree to be eligible to work with VIP Kid and some experience working with kids (church, camp, daycare, etc.).
If you don’t have a college degree, then you may want to check out Magic Ears. They offer the same type of classes to students, but teachers are not required to have a college degree.

#6 – Make Money without Paying Anything as a Pet Sitter
You can sign up with Wag to become a pet sitter earning anywhere from $10 – $150 per job. You can offer different services such as drop-ins, house sitting, dog boarding, dog walking, etc. If you really love animals, then this is the perfect job for you!
#7 – Make Extra Money Driving for UberEats
You can make money without paying anything (as long as you have a car and driver’s license) delivering food with UberEats. You basically are paid to pick up food orders from restaurants that have partnered with UberEats and deliver the food. This is a really flexible job that you can get started making money fast!
#8 – Make Money with Online Paid Surveys and Focus Groups
Paid online surveys and focus groups are one of the easiest ways to make money without paying anything to get started! All you have to do is sign up with survey companies and get paid for sharing your opinion. It does take time to qualify for surveys, which is based on the demographic a customer is needing for the survey. The key to get paid to do surveys through PayPal is to consistently take surveys each day.
Mintvine (now called Branded Surveys) surveys are one of my favorite ways to make money! I easily earn about $40 per month with Mintvine Surveys while I watch TV.
