Forbes may be the magazine of the business world, but they aren't above the occasional listcicle. Today my feed coughed up the insta-classic "15 Easy Side Hustles You Can Start This Weekend."
Ryan Robinson is the writer, and his intro slide sets it all up:
Not ready to leave your job, but also not ready to start up? Here are some ideas that can help you earn some extra money on the side.
Number one? Remote English Teacher-- you can make upwards of $25 an hour by skyping in to tutor folks in places like Hong Kong.
Number eight. Standardized test tutoring-- folks will pay big money for that.
Number nine. Teaching online courses, particularly if you have marketing or design skills.
What sort of other great hustles are listed with these items? Well, you could become an instagram marketeer, or brew your own beer, or be an online dating consultant, or even start podcasting. These are the sorts of things that rank with the education-related side hustles.
Oh, and number fifteen-- write college essays for students and their families.
Please note-- nobody suggests just pulling some legal advising out of your butt or doing medical care as a side hustle.
Add this to your list of the ten thousand little ways that our culture reminds us that teaching is not a valued profession, but some kind of hustle that anyone can do to scam a little cash now and then.
