If you are one of those people who want to use their free time as productively as they can then you need a side-hustle. A side-hustle will not only earn you some extra money, but it will stimulate you both professionally and personally.

Get on the extra money-making train by using your talents and a couple of hours of your day. Streaming on one of the best webcam sites, transcription audios for large corporations, and giving expert advice to people in your own industry - are just a few of the ways to have a successful and lucrative side-hustle. There is no reason why you shouldn't go for one of them right away.

In addition to this, we've prepared a list of the most profitable jobs that you can do as a side-hustle. All of the jobs on the list can be done from the comfort of your own home or from literally anywhere in the world.


A transcriptionist job is one of the easiest that you can do and that is why it is on top of this list. It is a job that anyone who can listen and type at the same time can do. There are thousands of companies from every industry that are in constant need of transcriptionists, so there is plenty of work to go around for everybody.

If you decide to try it out, you will get a couple of audios a day. Everything said on the audios you should put it down in words. To do this job you have to be very detail-oriented so you can execute it successfully. You can decide how many audios a day you want to transcribe and you will be paid for each audio that you do.


If you already have a full-time job doing anything, an online consulting job can be a perfect addition to your day. You will give advice to people just starting off in your industry or field or people deciding to venture out on their own. You can also mentor young people who are just starting to work within the industry.

A piece of good advice nowadays has a good price. People are willing to pay for knowledge that will give them a leg up in their own line of work. You can start by taking on a few clients and work your way up. The more clients - the more money you will make.

Virtual Assistant

Although this is usually a full-time job, there are options for you to do it part-time. A visual assistant job is very well paid and can be very fun to do. You will be in charge of email management, as well as scheduling things like meetings and calls. But virtual assistants also get to do fun things like social media management and event planning.

If you are thinking about changing career paths and trying out something more centered in the digital world, this job is a great gateway to it. It is a way to try out different things while keeping your full-time job so you won't rush into making a big decision without any real insight.
