TikTok is one of the most famous apps and takes this world by storm. We can say TikTok is rocking the current world. Luckily, this platform is filled with a massive group of audience. Compared with other social media like Instagram and Snapchat, TikTok mostly has user-generated content, consisting of lip-syncing, dancing videos, and more. Moreover, these videos are personalized with visual effects, filters, and AR lenses. It is different from other platforms by its tone and light-heartedness. Moreover, it helps to stand out from the usual scripted and curated content from other platforms.
Since Covid hit, Tom and I have been spending a lot more time hitting up thrift stores like Goodwill in search of some good used books to add to our collection. It’s insane how many gems are hiding on the shelves — some completely new! In fact, finding so many books at Goodwill has been a major help in upping the amount of reading we are able to accomplish. Because of our personal success finding gently used books at local thrift shops, you can imagine how excited I was to hear that a friend of mine started making almost $2,000 per month by flipping used books she had found at thrift stores!
As someone who has always had an entrepreneur spirit, I am will no doubt always encourage people to learn how to make income on their terms. Especially writers. You see, books have a soft spot in my heart, and for the longest time I had this voice in my head telling me, “You are a writer.” Then, when I started this little blog in my own corner of the internet I had a lightbulb go off… “I’m a writer!” So if you have had that voice in your head telling you you are a writer, here are 8 ideas for how you can get started writing from home (or anywhere in the world).
During quarantine, like a good chunk of 30-something moms, I casually hopped on the TikTok bandwagon. I started the usual way, trying to copy dance moves and memorize voice-overs that I had seen. As much as I liked viewing content, I did not like spending such a huge portion of my day dedicating time to memorization. It seemed like TikTok wasn’t for me, but then, one day on a whim I shared a new kind of video and since then my TikTok has taken off. Now I’m fully understanding how people are making a killing with TikTok and are getting paid to create fun videos. If you’re already a secret TikTok junkie, here’s how you can turn it into a mini side hustle.
In February of 2020, I was killing it at girl bossing, presenting at conferences, and rocking a marketing fempire bringing in $12,000+ a month. By April of 2020, my business took a hit and I was struggling, bringing in about 10% of that per month!
At the same time I was in need of income to pay my bills, I was quarantining in a city where I had no friends or social outlet, so I decided to hill two birds with one stone – by making money and helping people through Instacart + Shipt Shopping.
After applying to be a Shipt and Instacart Shopper and dabbling with it for a few months, I learned these tricks & tips on how to increase the hourly rate I can make on these personal shopping platforms.
If you are detail-oriented and looking to make some side hustle income, here are 9 tips to increase your hourly rate on Instacart and Shipt delivery services to $25 to $30 per hour.
I have always had a love for taking photos, that’s for sure. When I was 12 I used to use my allowance money to buy disposable cameras from KMart and then have them developed a week later. The one-hour film development guy and I were on a first-name basis. If you don’t know what film is, you can learn more here. Anyway, beyond taking 18 secret pictures of my crush and 6 of myself (I would like to think I invented the selfie), I had no photography experience when I started my own photography business at the age of 23. Now, with the technology, most phones offer I want to share some strategies on how you could start a side hustle as a photographer using only a camera phone.
