I'm talking about the renaissance of people doing business with people a€” instead of giant companies a€” a movement facilitated by an ever-growing array of marketplaces and apps.
The "sharing economy" a€” with the help of websites and apps a€” is displacing some of those corporations and getting us back to our roots.
The premise is we have underutilized assets in our lives (our house, car, stuff, expertise, time, money, etc.), and we can sell or rent those to our neighbors in win-win transactions. These app-powered peer-to-peer transactions are unlocking an estimated $300 billion in economic activity by 2025.
Note: Because many of these companies are startups, they may only be available in select cities and countries at the moment.
Artsicle – Let others discover (and hopefully buy!) your art on this free-to-join marketplace.
TurningArt – TurningArt is a unique art rental marketplace for homeowners and workplaces. Minted – This specialty store offers wedding invitations, stationery, home decor, and other items from independent artists and photographers like you. Redbubble – Join the network of more than 350,000 independent artists selling their creative work on Redbubble.
I think this has the potential to be a really cool passive income stream, especially if your designs can begin ranking on their own in Google. Teespring – With Teespring, you create your own unique t-shirt designs and then market them to relevant audiences, earning the spread between your purchase price and the cost to produce. My friend Benny earned 6-figures in his first 6 months as a Teespring seller, and stopped by The Side Hustle Show last year to fill us in on how it works.
Threadless – Create your own store and submit your t-shirt designs to Threadless, a fun community of independent artists and fans. They’ve even got a cool little calculator on their site to estimate how much you might earn.
Naturally nicer, newer cars in popular travel destinations earn the most, and I’ve actually heard of people taking out leases on cars specifically to rent them out on Turo. GetAround – GetAround is a similar concept to Turo, and has car owners earning up to $10,000 a year and rental periods as short as one hour. FlightCar – FlightCar is a cool service that promises better-than-free airport parking. When I searched for cars at Washington Dulles, the best rate was $54 a day, which was actually more than double the same rental at Hertz. Wrapify – When you sign up with Wrapify, your car gets covered with a giant advertisement and you earn money based on how far you drive. Carvertise – If you have a 2005 model year car or newer and drive 800+ miles a month, you may qualify to earn $300-650 per campaign with Carvertise.

Scribendi – Scribendi hires proofreaders and editors to work remotely and correct client documents. The Expert Institute – The Expert Institute connects subject matter experts (you!) with attorneys and corporations who happily pay for your analysis and opinions. Set your own rates and conduct virtual sessions from your home or office at your convenience. Feastly – Put your culinary skills up for sale by hosting group meals on the Feastly platform.
CookUnity – Freelance chefs in New York City can join CookUnity for access to their kitchen facility and packaging services to reach a new audience of foodies. According to their blog, women are charging anywhere from $10 to $300 for a night out — and probably getting a meal out of the deal too.
Rent a Friend – According to Rent A Friend you can earn up to $50 an hour on this strictly platonic match-making site.
Kit – With Kit you can share your favorite items without ever letting them out of your sight. You simply create a kit (what essentials you bring on every business trip, for example), and make affiliate links to buy the products on Amazon. BagBorroworSteal – Sell your designer handbags and accessories on consignment, or take a lower offer price and get paid right away. Soothe – Soothe operates similarly, sending licensed massage therapists directly to the customers who request them. Airbnb – Airbnb is one of the most well-known sharing economy platforms and is disrupting the entire hotel industry.
Your rates are going to be dictated by your local competition, which could be anywhere from $40 to $300 a night. Home Away – A well-established vacation rental site specializing in whole-house rentals.
VRBO – Vacation Rental By Owner, another marketplace for short-term vacation rentals.
If you’re going to list on one of these sites, you might as well cast a wide net and list on all of them. Namestation – New companies are often looking for help coming up with names for the businesses or product lines. Motif – Motif Investing lets you create your own mutual funds, buckets of up to 30 stocks, and share them with others.
Udemy – With Udemy you can create a video course in your area of expertise, set your own price (up to $50) and put it up for sale on their platform of more than 10 million students. Udemy recently made some pricing and promotion changes that have dramatically cut earnings, but I’ve still earned over $10,000 on the platform and was consistently earning $200-600 a month.
A few Side Hustle Nation guests have found success on Udemy as well, including Scott Britton, Rob Cubbon, and Phil Ebiner. Coursmos – A growing online education platform where you can set your own prices for your course without any limits.

Hmm, we’re always hosting our friends’ dogs anyway so maybe this could be a viable side hustle!

Like the other platforms listed below, your cash isn’t as liquid as with other more traditional investments, but my diversified portfolio of notes spins off cash-flow every month. Check this post to read more about my high-risk high-return strategy for Prosper, the tool I use to automate my investing, and download the exact loan filters I use.
QuidCycle – A peer-to-peer lending platform in the UK specializing in debt consolidation loans. GroundFloor – Investors can earn up to 12% lending on short-term real estate rehab projects.

UserTesting – Earn $10 for completing 20 minute online user tests of websites, apps, shopping portals, and more.
You have to act fast though when new studies are released; in my experience UserTesting tests disappear very quickly.
Pond5 – Pond5 is a super cool site with not only photography, but also music, video, sound effects, and illustrations. SnapWire – Earn 50-70% royalties when companies buy the rights to your beautiful photography on SnapWire.
Ibotta – The free ibotta app pays you cash for taking pictures of your receipts from more than 80 chains, including Walmart, Safeway, Kroger, Publix, Costco, and Target.

Once you download the app, browse their listings before you go shopping to unlock cash rewards on the products you were going to buy anyway. For example, they asked me if I was going to buy Budweiser before I saw that I could get $3 back, and when the last time I drank a Budweiser product. TaskRabbit – Task Rabbit is one of the largest sharing economy platforms, and you can create a profile specializing in everything from running local errands, assembling furniture, local admin temp help, and even virtual support jobs. Thumbtack – Thumbtack is a unique marketplace for both virtual and in-person on-demand work. The Thumbtack marketplace is pretty extensive, with services including accounting, house painting, voice lessons, quilting, web design, and even legal work. Zaarly – Use Zaarly to get matched up with customers in need of home cleaning, yard care, and handyman services near you.

Crowdio – Become a Crowdio customer service agent and get paid for every live chat interaction you resolve.

Mow lawns or shovel snow. Whether it is snow removal or lawn care, working outdoors with your hands can be a very lucrative way for college students to earn extra money.
Just because you’re in college and busy doesn’t mean that you can’t earn a few extra dollars to help boost yourself when you’re not in class. The cookie settings on this website are set to "allow cookies" to give you the best browsing experience possible.

If you are good in handcraft work then make creative products like Bags, painting, jewelry, craft items and sell them on com, eBay, Etsy, ArtFire. If you’re looking to make some extra money, you probably know that actually getting started and bringing in your first dollar is critical. The thing is, coming up with money-making ideas in the first place is the tough part for many people. This little book is packed with a variety of money-making ideas (101 of them, as you might guess!) that will help get you inspired and making money. Some of the ideas will require physical labor, some will require technical skills or the ability to type, some will require creativity, and some will pretty much just require the ability to put yourself out there and go get some clients. This is awesome congratulations I have always wanted to write an eBook but you actually did it. A few of the web sites that are linked to are aimed specifically at the US or UK, but the vast majority of the ideas themselves could be used in any industrialized nation. The difference between these two very different groups of people has nothing to do with professional experience or background or some special skill set. The first and most important aspect of achieving success in any field is to stay focused on an objective. In order to stay focused on your goals, you need to first understand what those goals are, and how you might implement them.
Each of these goals may be part of an overall mission, but in and of themselves they do not help you achieve your aims, because they aren’t action oriented. The second point to consider about earning extra money is that you need to commit to the long haul. Chances are, if a program tells you its possible to earn hundred of thousands or millions of dollars in 30 days, you’re probably being fooled into buying into a scam. Finally, the last pillar of success comes in terms of how you set about achieving your goals.
Once you have your objectives, you need to figure out how to break them into actionable, achievable tasks.
If you break your objectives down into actions you can take, and then you set out to achieve them one by one, results will come, and you will be on your way to true success. The premise is we have underutilized assets in our lives, and we can sell or rent those assets to our neighbors in win-win transactions. Often you can find similar or competing options in your area by searching around, or by reaching out to the platform you like and offering to help them expand.
Artists earn royalties each time their work is rented, or when prints or originals are sold through the site.
You have 100% control over the price for your work, with most artists earning 10-30% of the retail price as their take-home. I found the interface really clunky and confusing but maybe I should give Cafepress and Zazzle a try. The interesting thing about Teespring is unless your campaign hits a minimum critical mass of orders (that you set), nothing gets printed and nobody gets charged.
Like other print-on-demand clothing sites, you make the spread between the purchase price and the cost, usually around $10 a shirt. A quick search of boats nearby yielded plenty of results with rates ranging from $230 to $950 per day! Their pioneering ridesharing platform offers the opportunity to essentially start your own taxi service and earn money on your own schedule driving your neighbors around.
If driving people around Uber-style isn’t your jam, you might consider this as an alternative.
The company has been around since 2012 and is one of the more established players in this space.
On the flip side, if you’re a licensed therapist, you can set up your profile and begin earning up to $3000 a month taking your practice online. If you have a passion for your city, love meeting new people, and have always wanted to be a tour guide, here’s your chance. The company will store your clothes for free and pay you each time someone rents an item of yours.
Create your own online storefront for $4 a month and they even have a tool that lets you syndicate your Etsy listings. If you can create website templates, WordPress plugins, stock videos, jingles, graphics, and even 3D models, this is the place for you. Choose what you share and what companies you share it with, and earn up to $50 each time your data is sold. If you’re a talented designer with a competitive streak you can enter design contests here and win cash prizes if your design is chosen. The platform seems oriented toward health, wellness, and mindfulness, but does have experts in other areas as well. During my discussion with Glenn Carter, he shared the story of one New York chef earning $1000 a month part-time on this site. On this unique dating platform, you set your price for a first date and get paid when someone takes you out. According to their website, Soothe therapists earn 2-3x more than they would at a traditional spa and have more flexible work hours. One Side Hustle Nation guest rented out his spare room to essentially live rent free, and another rents his entire apartment while traveling the world. We’ve even seen people buying investment properties solely for the purpose of turning them into Airbnb rentals.

And as Jasper pointed out on the podcast, if you have hotels in your city or town, you know there’s at least some demand.
Just make sure to update your availability calendar when bookings come through on different platforms. When you join Motif’s Creator Royalty Program, you can earn $1 for everyone else who buys your Motif.
I like Udemy and platforms like it because you can create the asset once, and sell it again and again. When I was browsing it seemed like hourly rates were mostly around $10 for English practice.
VerbalPlanet asks you to only apply to their tutoring platform if you have teaching experience.
You’ll find gigs for Instagram, infographics, SEO, and more ranging from $49 to $500 a month and beyond. Since it’s open to non-accredited investors and the minimum investment is just $1000, I decided to give it a shot.
Similar to Prosper, you can buy fractional ownership (starting at just $10) of these notes to spread your risk around. With FundersClub, you can diversify your startup investing without the pressure of picking one moonshot winner. Be prepared to potentially wait a long time to see a return, since it usually takes a public stock offering or acquisition to cash out your shares.
You can set your own rate and CoachUp private coaches report earning an average or $45 an hour. If so, you can earn money helping with computer setup, networking installations, TV mounting, and more for homeowners and businesses in your city. Naturally, rates vary market to market and could be $200 for a meeting room for a day or several thousand a month for a startup team space with 10 desks. Special software tracks your mouse movement while your webcam and mic record your eye movement, facial expressions, and words as you complete the questions.
If each platform doesn’t require exclusivity, it probably makes sense to syndicate your work to all of them for the best chance of discovery and royalties.
The cash will hit your Ibotta account within 48 hours and you can pull it out with PayPal, Venmo, or exchange for gift cards. But if you’ve got a primo seat on your next flight you can sell it to someone stuck in a middle seat in the back of the plane using this super-niche app.
Buyers submit requests for what they need and if it seems like a fit for your skills, you pay a nominal fee to bid on the job. The company paid out over a $1 billion to their pros last year, and it looks like a great platform to begin making money in the sharing economy. Since I started on the site, I’ve earned over $11,000, met some awesome people, and found an alternative distribution platform for some of my work. One of my most popular podcast episodes is with a Fiverr seller who earned enough cash on the platform in his first year to buy a house. Two rounds of Skype interviews are required to maintain the high quality of service providers on the FreeeUp platform. For example, when I searched for math tutors nearby, the Wyzant search engine suggested tutors from $40-60 an hour.
You get paid when your content results in a new student joining Course Hero, and you can also earn by answering student questions on the platform. If you’ve got some excess storage capacity, list your space here to fill it and get paid. If you own or access event space, or could host a killer wedding reception in your backyard, there might be a side hustle opportunity here.
You have control over the price of your work, with most artists earning 10 to 30 percent of the retail price.
This ride-sharing service is branded more as "your friend with a car," perhaps a little more personable than the Uber behemoth. If driving people around Uber-style isn't your jam, you might consider this as an alternative. On the flip side, if you're a licensed therapist, you can set up your profile and begin earning up to $3,000 a month taking your practice online.
If you have a passion for your city, love meeting new people and have always wanted to be a tour guide, here's your chance. If you can create website templates, WordPress plugins, stock videos, jingles, graphics and even 3-D models, this is the place for you. The platform seems oriented toward health, wellness and mindfulness, but does have experts in other areas as well.A Set your own rates and conduct virtual sessions from your home or office at your convenience.
DuringA my discussion with Glenn Carter, he shared the story of one New York chef earning $1000 a month part-time on this site. You might get hired to accompany new friends to the movies, dinner, the gym, shopping or whatever you include in your free profile. According to their website, Soothe therapists earn up to two times more than they would at a traditional spa and have more flexible work hours. We've even seen people buying investment properties solely for the purpose of turning them into Airbnb rentals.A Your rates are going to be dictated by your local competition, which could be anywhere from $40 to $300 a night.
Making it easy for you to find a place to stay orA make money at your own home while you're on vacation. When I ran a search for an upcoming trip to San Diego, I found rates from $27 to $65 a night. When you join Motif's Creator Royalty Program, you can earn $1 for everyone else who buys your Motif. Between classes and everything else that will be on your schedule, you may find yourself without enough time to work a full-time job. If you’re willing to put in the time needed to do the shopping and shipping, you could potentially make a full-time income with just a few hours a week. You won’t get rich doing them, but you can earn a free gift card or two and maybe even enough to buy your textbooks! You’ll want to have references (both character and prior employer) to help you get the job. Mowers and weed eaters can be picked up for fairly cheap and a snow shovel is even cheaper.

Even you can make extra cash or money more then your salary from your skills and knowledge. Apply to UserTesting and get paid to review and websites testing from the usability perspective. You can do live Guitar classes, online tech support live programing tutorials or cooking class, fitness and nutrition tips and more. You’ll likely find at least one (and probably many) ideas you can quickly put into action.
They include quantifiable aims, whether in the form of a monetary figure, a timeline, or other goal. Not sticking with your original objectives and abandoning a new site too soon is one of the primary reasons new marketers fail. Unfortunately, this can lead to a demoralizing cycle in which the individual feels helpless and unable to do anything about it. When someone buys, you earn a royalty on the sale, but never have to touch the inventory or ship the product; the company does it all for you. Your car probably sits idle at least some of the time and the idea behind Turo is to put that idle time to use.
Offset the cost of your trip by delivering something that’s heading the same direction.

I can only imagine how helpful it can be for US-reality and I wonder if it can relate to European market too?
If you use numbers, you’re more likely to accurately assess whether or not you’re living up to the objective. My car wasn’t accepted because it was over 95,000 miles, but if you have a younger model this could be an interesting service to try on your next trip.
If you’re skilled in painting, plumbing, electrical work, or cleaning with a friendly service attitude, this could be an interesting side hustle.
