How You Can Start Making Money Outside Of Your 9-5 Today

Making money outside of your 9-5 might seem like a bit of a crazy idea for you - after all, you work hard while you’re at work, so why should you keep on working at home? That’s your time to relax and get some all important ‘me time’. However, if you don’t start working on your own goals now, you’ll always be giving up your time to put money in the pockets of somebody else.

Below, you’ll get an idea of how you can start making money outside of your 9-5 job today!

Make YouTube Videos
If making videos fascinates you, making YouTube videos could be right up your street. Perhaps you think you have something valuable to add to the YouTube world, or maybe you can’t find the type of content you want online. It’s your chance to make it yourself. Uploading content to YouTube is free for you, and if you develop a following, you could stand to make a lot of money from your videos. The key is to be consistent, share valuable content that people want to see, and that’s pretty much it. You could also market yourself, depending on what it is you’re sharing.

Of course, making YouTube videos isn't easy. It takes time to film and edit a video, and doing so constantly will take up a lot of your time. However, many people who are now working as full time YouTubers will tell you that it was all worth it for them!

Write Ebooks
Perhaps you have a lot of knowledge surrounding a certain subject. You could write an Ebook designed to tell people all about that subject. Writing an Ebook takes time, but once it’s published, all you have to do is market yourself. Then, you can make money continuously for that one piece of work. If you can write numerous Ebooks, then you might end up making a lot of money even while you sleep.


Become A Virtual Assistant
A virtual assistant can do many things, from answering emails to answering calls. It’s their job to relieve business owners of the burden of running a business. You can do this from home, and it’s great for those who are good at admin type tasks.

Start Your Own Side Hustle At Home
There are all kinds of side hustles you can start at home, both passive and active. Passive is the type of income you make even while you sleep, such as YouTube videos and Ebooks. Active is where you’re swapping time for money (although you stand to make a lot more money when you work for yourself). If you’re going to start a side hustle with the hopes of making it your full time gig, you should probably figure out what you’re passionate about. If you want to be in this for the long run, doing something you genuinely feel passionate about is a must.

There are all kinds of ways you can build a great business reputation right from the start, too. You could give away free samples or run competitions to get some reviews and testimonials. You could also start using a virtual address to make your business look bigger than it is, and keep yourself safe by keeping your real address under wraps.

Create And Sell Art
If you consider yourself a bit of an artist, creating and selling your art could be the way to go. You could cross stitch unique pictures, paint, make clothes, or do anything else that you enjoy. Doing this outside of your 9-5 is still work, but if you enjoy art, it can also be a way of reducing stress and having fun. You could start by creating your own Facebook page, an Etsy page, or even by attending festivals and selling there. Pricing your art and actually marketing yourself can be tough, but it’s something you’ll get the hang of the more you do it.

Making money outside your 9-5 is by no means easy. However, it is doable. If you got up just an hour earlier each day, that’s another hour you could spend on your own business. Some people like working a 9-5. The money is fine and they enjoy the job security. However, if you’re not content with that and you want more for yourself, you’re going to want to start making changes now. Building your own business or at least finding out what path you want to take can take time, so don’t wait.

How will you start making money outside of your 9-5?
