The current COVID-19 crisis has left many people in the workforce in bad situations. Some employers can’t pay enough, some can’t pay at all, and for people who were self-employed and are unable to work now, that means no money. If you are looking for a new, work-from-home job or a side-hustle to make up for lost income, we’ve got some ideas for you. Hint: These are also great ideas for parents at home with kids who have some, but not full, time to get some work done.

Here are our top picks for side hustles for just about any interest out there.

For Those With A Flair For the Arts

Fast Money With What You Have

If You’ve Got A Special Interest

Do you love to cook? Did you train your own dog? Are you an at-home wine-maker? If you’ve got any special interest, chances are you know A LOT about that subject and there are a myriad of money-making ways to share your knowledge base with others. Here are some of the most popular:

For Anyone With Language Skills

No Experience Necessary

Take Your Profession Online

If you are a bookkeeper, office manager, executive assistant, or teacher, your work can be moved online. Online bookkeeping is popular for companies without physical office space and can be easily done remotely. The same for virtual assistants, especially for companies working outside the US who want someone available during US work hours. And online tutoring in any subject can be easily done without too many adjustments.

If you have work experience others could benefit from, consider an online consulting business where you work with clients and companies remotely by email and video chat. Online coaches like fitness trainers or life coaches can easily move their interactions with clients to Zoom or other forms of video conferencing.

For The Tech Experts

Tech companies are always looking for programmers and developers (especially app developers) so if you already have these skills, great! If not and you have the motivation, check out some of the free and paid coding courses out there, like Code Academy, and then start marketing your new skill. 

Finally, with all of these new home businesses getting started, there is tons of work out there for website builders. People and companies all over are looking for personalized websites so if that’s something you can do, get a move on!
