Five Side Hustles for Working Woman 2020

A working mom and a side hustle.

Before I had kids, it was pretty easy for me to hustle as a working woman, specifically a working childless woman.  How can someone with a full-time job outside the home earn extra income? After having my twins I found five simple hustle ideas that work seamlessly with my career as a working woman and a mom. Now I can work without letting those daycare hours dictate when I have to stop with these five side hustles.

This list of five curated side hustles will give you some ideas on how to earn a little extra money, from the comforts of home. Not only can you make money, but you can make it relatively quickly. The money will be sent to you via PayPal within a week. I can put the ideas into your head, what you do with this (or how much money you generate) is up to you.  Before we begin, note that you will probably not make enough money to quit your job. However, you’ll make a few extra dollars to help with some bills or at the very least buy a happy hour cocktail (if your buying I’ll take a Cadillac Margarita please).

Usertesting 

If you have never heard of Usertesting, believe me, you are not the only one. Usertesting is probably the best web testing based website out there. If you want to get the particulars you can read my blog about Usertesting. I have made some extra money off of the website. It’s a great project for you to work on if you have a few hours alone. You will need a headset with a microphone. You will get several smaller surveys to see if you qualify for the larger survey. I’ve made a video about it so make sure you take a look. Usertesting can be unpredictable. But Usertesting is a website I’ve used on my own for about 18 months.

Intellizoom

Intellizoom is pretty similar to Usertesting but on a smaller scale. It is actually a little bit more user-friendly than Usertesting. However, the payout is smaller. Each survey will generate about two dollars. I have made money off of Intellizoom and I can vouch that you probably will too. Between Usertesting and Intellizoom, I think Usertesting has the potential for earning more money but Intellizoom has more surveys and web testing opportunities with a smaller payout.  

Instapanel

Out of all the websites listed Instapanel is my favorite. However, I would be doing you a disservice if I rated it as my favorite website to earn money on. Huh, What do you mean? I am going to get there, keep on reading!. Instapanel has a lovely setup, is super easy, and can even be a little on the fun side. Yet, Instapanel is like a needle in a haystack. It might not be there when you want it but it is always on time. Instapanel hardly ever needs participants. When I say hardly ever, you might get one invitation for a panel per season. However, when you do get that magic invite in your inbox, oh boy! Instapanel is an easy $20 and has super quick payment.

Amazon Mechanical Turk

I feel to truly understand Amazon Mechanical Turk you need a Ph.D. in the study of the side hustle.  It is like someone wrote a dissertation on how to side hustle and they had to defend their dissertation with this complex website.   It looks kind of intimidating. When you enter their portal there are tons of jobs. It is up to you to pick a job that is conducive to your skills. I can see a lot of potential to earn some money on Amazon Mechanical Turk. However, unless it’s a super simple job like taking a survey, I tend to think you probably should have a little bit more time to dedicate to Amazon Mechanical Turk.

The Triumphant Return – TeacherCes Podcast

After months of waiting, The TeacherCes Podcast has made its triumphant return. The return has been long-awaited as listeners have been anxiously awaiting the return of the long-running podcast. Although that reads like a press release written from a great publicist, that is not exactly the case.

I decided to throw caution to the wind and release an episode of my pet project. No special guest, just one mic and myself. I am a stickler for sound quality so forgive me for being slightly vexed if the sound is not up to par. I also did it in one take, as I hate to edit. Additionally, editing takes up so much time and usually causes delays in my show being released.

Take a listen and thank you in advance for leaving a comment on iTunes, so my show will be easier to find. If you have any ideas for topics, leave them in the suggestions below . . .

How I Earned Extra Income and You Can Too. Here’s How!

If you’re like me, you seem to never have enough spare time. Tutoring online was a good starting point but the low pay was a turn-off. Although it was easy, the amount of extra income was not worth my time. Eventually, I’ll share my thoughts on these online tutoring companies in the very near future, so be on the lookout for that blog/video. That was until I discovered the world of website testing.

You can make extra income right now money right now with Usertesting. You can make up to $30 dollars (or maybe even more) an hour. Testing websites is the way to earn while you work from home. This is a legit company that will pay you money. Why are you not doing this right now?
