You may not be able to start a fulltime business right now but you can get a side hustle. A side hustle is a part-time venture for making extra money for a short or long-term period of time in addition to working a fulltime job. Use the side hustle to make quick cash for building up an emergency fund, paying off a bill quickly, saving up for a trip, saving up to start a fulltime business, or getting your kid (or any loved one) a cool gift. You may just want to go on a shopping spree because of an upcoming wedding or class reunion. Whatever the reason for starting a side hustle, it’s a quick and easy way to get cash fast.

So what can you do as a side venture? The options are endless and it’s just a matter of taking one thing you already know how to do and offering it to others. Classic side hustles are Friday night fish dinners to neighbors, hair or nail services, selling candy or ice cream to the neighborhood kids, and typing term papers for students. These are all excellent ventures and most customers come from word of mouth referrals.
