#SideHustle #SideGigg: Whether you’re a student or working a 9-5 job, there are many ways to make some more money on the side. You just need to know them and be ready to give the required effort and commitment to making them work for you. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, shares 6 tips to earn some more money on the side.

Consulting/Coaching
If you have a specific skill-set with adequate knowledge and experience, you can leverage on it and build a lucrative side business on consulting/coaching that’s quite easy and affordable to start. It can involve giving advice to a start-ups on how to build their public image, assisting start-ups with social media marketing and SEO work etc. The best part of this business is that you can build it to fit your schedule and free time.

Freelance Work
This is another flexible side business that doesn’t need long-term commitments. You can also adapt this kind of business to fit your schedule and free time. Becoming a freelancer can involve writing content for businesses, doing content marketing for start-ups and doing design work for businesses, which can include graphic designs, web designs, logo designs etc. It really depends on your talent, skill-set and interests. The best part of this is that there is a reasonably high demand for freelancers especially in the area of content marketing, social media marketing and design work.

Leverage On Your Vehicle
If you have a vehicle, you can cash in on it by registering with Uber or Taxify or both. The best part about this is that you can keep your keys by becoming a driver on the platform or hire someone to drive the car on the platform for you.
However, when considering this option as a means to making some extra money, you should be sure that you are satisfied with the rate of depreciation of your car (because it will definitely be higher). You also have to consider the cost of financing the car and other maintenance costs.

Produce Crafts
If you’re good with your hands, are creative and love to create crafts and design work, you can use the talent to create jewelry, clothing, furniture or accessories, and can sell them to make some decent money on the side. The advent of social media has made marketing your craft work and designs much easier, as you can take advantage of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and online shopping platforms like Jumia mall, to put your work out there and get it sold.

Photography
If you have good photography skills, you can purchase a camera and start doing photography jobs on the side. Photography is now big business, if you know how to exploit it, and you can start a very decent side business from it. However, in the photography business, it is best to carve a niche for yourself. Don’t be a jack-of-all-trades and master of none, you are unlikely to get positive recognition and referrals that way. You can specialize in weddings, capturing landscapes, taking fashion pictures etc. You can also sell some of your pictures to sites like Shutterstock.

Modeling or Voice-Over Work
Modeling is not all about having the perfect body and walking on the runway, there are different aspects of modeling. You can be a body model, hand model, leg model or even a face model, and earn some decent money from it. If you are really good at it, there is a chance that you get more recognition, and even attain a kind of ‘celebrity status’ from it, which of course means more money for you.
For the voice-over work, if you have a voice that’s great for voice-overs and you have some broadcast experience, you can earn some extra money by doing voice-over work for ad agencies, broadcasting houses etc.

Very helpful. Guys, you can also take a look at this: How To Make Time For A Side Hustle https://www.slideshare.net/rosssimmonds ... ide-hustle

SUMMARY:

MAKE TIME FOR YOUR SIDE HUSTLE (even when you’re crazy busy)
WHEN YOU HIT THE AGE OF 15, ON AVERAGE, YOU WILL HAVE 23,360 DAYS TO LIVE.
but you will also spend 8,477 of those days sleeping…
LEAVING YOU WITH 14,883 DAYS. WHERE ON AVERAGE WE WORK FOR 3,222 OF THEM…
BUT WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON? ARE WE BUILDING OUR OWN DREAM OR SOMEONE ELSE'S?
FOR MOST PEOPLE, THEIR SCHEDULE LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE THIS...
WAKE UP WORK DRIVE MORNING ROUTINE WORK RELAX DRIVE WORK SLEEP
IF THIS LOOKS FAMILIAR LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO THE SIDE HUSTLE.
Side Hustle: The act of creating your own business as a side project to your regular 9-5 employment.
WHY DO I LOVE THE SIDE HUSTLE? PROS CONS MORE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET BUILD NEW SKILLS EMPLOYMENT BACK-UP PLAN OFFERS CREATIVE OUTLET DO WHAT YOU LOVE CONTROL YOUR DESTINY EXTRA 10 HOURS A WEEK LESS WATCHING TV LESS PLAYING VIDEO GAMES
IT’S NOT EASY, BUT IT’LL BE WORTH IT. “Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”
4 SIMPLE TIPS TO GET STARTED TODAY: 1. AVOID DISTRACTIONS 2. CREATE CONSISTENCY 3. BE A PASSENGER 4. LEARN TO SAY NO
1. GET UP REALLY REALLY EARLY. OR STAY UP REALLY REALLY LATE. WHY IT WORKS When you wake up early or go to bed late, the probability of someone else being awake and able to interrupt you decreases. No distractions. You’re hustling away while the rest of the world is busy either sleeping or trying to pull themselves out of bed.
1. GET UP REALLY REALLY EARLY. OR STAY UP REALLY REALLY LATE. HOW IT WORKS Socrates once said, the secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new. The key here is focus & energy. Whether you sleep in or go to bed early, make sure you’re well rested. Eat healthy meals, drink lots of water and try to get a light exercise in when you can.
1. GET UP REALLY REALLY EARLY. OR STAY UP REALLY REALLY LATE. TAKE AWAY TIP “The biggest drain on your time isn’t the time in which you’re busy getting things done, the biggest drain on your time is being interrupted” Let’s hang out!
2. CREATE CONSISTENCY IN YOUR WEEKLY CALENDER WHY IT WORKS Blocking off time in your day to focus on your side hustle will keep distractions from breaking up your day and disconnecting your ability to get into a sense of flow.
2. CREATE CONSISTENCY IN YOUR WEEKLY CALENDER HOW IT WORKS Create a “Hustle-Night” where you’re completely focused and wired into your work. You never book meetings outside of those associated with your side hustle on that night.
2. CREATE CONSISTENCY IN YOUR WEEKLY CALENDER TAKE AWAY TIP “We can’t manage time because time is a constant. Instead, we must learn to manage ourselves and prioritize our efforts on a daily basis.”
3. BE A PASSENGER WHY IT WORKS I hate driving. People usually think that’s odd so let me explain. It’s not that I hate the act of driving from point A to point B, what I hate is the amount of time required to get there. Taking advantage of time spent traveling allows you to be efficient with your time and will make the world of difference in your already busy schedule.
3. BE A PASSENGER HOW IT WORKS Take a tablet or laptop when traveling by air. Work on the tasks that don’t require wifi and send everything off once you reach your destination. Utilize taxis or busses. Reply to e-mails or manage your calendar in the time you would have spent driving.
3. BE A PASSENGER TAKE AWAY TIP “Anything over an hour is an hour you could have been generating value, instead of simply moving your body from here to there.”
4. SAYING NO THE POWER OF “ WHY IT WORKS ” Don’t spend time doing things that aren’t going to benefit you down the road or help you get closer to your goals. Focus needs to be embraced when you’re taking on new work and a new lifestyle.
4. SAYING NO THE POWER OF “ HOW IT WORKS ” If you’re too busy to catch up with someone or commit to something, simply tell them you’ve got a lot going on right now. Honesty is always the best policy. Prioritization is the key to success and happiness; choose wisely.
4. SAYING NO THE POWER OF “ TAKE AWAY TIP ” “Say no to requests to do things that you don’t really want to, don’t value or don’t bring you satisfaction and joy.”
WE’RE ALL PRIVILEGED WITH 24 HOURS IN A DAY AND 365 DAYS IN A YEAR.
It’s up to us to determine how we spend our time and what your goals and legacy will look like. If you’re capable to ready this entire deck, you’re capable to create something great. You’re capable to build something bigger than yourself and capable of making time for a side hustle.
