If you want to start 2024 off on the right foot, it’s important to think about ways that you can start making more money and have a more profitable year in 2024. Here’s a collection of side hustles to think about when you want to be sure to get that cash and end the year with a better financial situation than ever before:

Think about nannying

If you’ve worked in childcare and have experience with little ones, nannying can be a side hustle that pays off. Parents are looking for people who are qualified to carefully watch their little ones to help free them up, whether for work or simply some extra support.

While you will typically need to pass nanny background checks and have worked with children previously, once hired, it can be a side job that will provide you with a fair salary and a lot of perks.


Drive for delivery services

If you like to make your schedule and work when you want, driving for companies like Uber Eats or DoorDash could be an option. It allows you to schedule yourself for the time slots which are more convenient for you and ensures you work when you want. Keep in mind that there are tricks to making money from this type of hustle.

You want to be sure to work when it’s “traditional mealtimes,” choose night time shifts over lunch shifts, and keep an eye on the miles and pay for each order, so you avoid driving too far for a small return on investment. If you’re patient and like driving, this could be a great side hustle for you.

Start a side business built around your hobby

Do you have a unique hobby such as painting or creating crafty jewelry? Maybe you do it for fun and your friends or family love it. You know, you could be making a bank on sites like Etsy where people post their creative works of art (any kind of creative thing) and sell them in a heartbeat. Or you could go the route of starting your own side business, building up a following on social media, and getting people interested in the amazing skill you have.

Teach a second language

Whether you grew up speaking two languages or you’ve lived abroad and acquired a second language, you may want to consider teaching a second language to interested parties as a side hustle. A talented teacher could make anywhere from $20-$40 per hour teaching a language, so don’t rule it out if you are a bilingual, trilingual, or multilingual individual. People love to pay to learn something new, so this could be a great option for you.

Whether you look for clients yourself or you browse online for them, you can be confident that you’ll find plenty of interested people looking to learn a new language. If you like people and languages, this side hustle may be perfect.

Get into the trades/labor

Trade work can be something that doesn’t require too much preparation as long as you’ve gained some experience. If you’ve been in the plumbing business or have worked in construction, some of these labor jobs can pay big money for work that requires a little bit of skill as well as some muscle. A job that isn’t available for just everyone, if you can do it, you’ll be more likely to make a lot of money, so if you want to pick up some shifts for extra cash, this is something to consider.

In Conclusion

From tutoring to nannying, construction jobs, and more, side hustles can provide you with the extra cash you may need while also offering some flexibility. Consider these ideas when you’re looking to make some money or simply do something to keep you busy. As long as you have the skill, the money should follow!
