First I would like to thank you guys for still rocking with me, despite my inconsistent posts on my blog! Follow me on social media (all social: @itsjoitomyworld) where I’m 20,000 times more active.
Speaking of social, if you already follow me, then you know that I am the queen of side hustles in addition to having a full-time job and being a primary parent. The great thing about these side hustles is that you could do them full-time as well, if you had to.
In this article, you will find the pros and cons of each one, if a sitter is required, expected payout and how to sign up. This topic is in high-demand on my social sites, so I hope you throughly enjoy it and share it with your friends! If you’re wondering what makes me the expert on these…I have done 90% of the ones on this list.
Moms, this is one side-hustle that I have vowed to never bring my daughter on. While ride share services are not as dangerous as people think, this one is an extreme risk to bring your child on. A stranger sitting in your backseat while you drive is totally different than them sitting back there with your kid. Another tip for this one, google ‘uber’ and/or ‘Lyft’ before signing up. With target marketing and geofencing, these companies can see that you have searched for them and I guarantee within a few days, you’ll receive some sort of spam email or advertisement while surfing the internet offering you a bonus to sign up.
If you would like to pay it forward, my referral codes for these are:
Expected payout: This totally depends on what city you live in, how many drives you do, how far each one is and promotions in the area. I’ve made anywhere from $15-$150 in one day/night after just a few hours.
Shipt is an app based grocery delivery service and it is awesome! Now, their policy is that you are to bring no one with you, this includes friends and children. Taking this risk is totally up to you. What you want to consider though: you will have to leave them in the car while taking someone’s groceries to their door, a customer could report you (especially if you mess up their order lol) or a fellow Shipt shopper could report you (google the word, hater). I truly enjoy Shipt because I have to go to the grocery store anyways and the tips are usually good. I like Shipt so much that I made a YouTube video about it. Check it out below.
If you would like to pay it forward, my referral codes for Shipt are:
Expected payout: This depends on how many orders you deliver, tips and promotions added to orders. I’ve made anywhere from an extra $250-$1500/month.
I just did my first Amazon Flex batch yesterday and loved it! The payout is one of the highest and you could easily do this full-time. Most importantly, this one is perfect if you would like to bring your kid with you. While Amazon advises you not to bring anyone or pets with you, there is no strict policy against it. As a matter of fact, they tell you what to do if you have to bring someone or a pet with you. The policy basically boils down to not letting them walk around the warehouse and interacting with customers.
Granted, Amazon does require you to watch videos on what to expect, but watching something in animation is totally different than seeing the real thing.
However, after leaving the warehouse for the first time, you’ll be just fine. The app is amazing because it goes step by step with you.
Expected payout: I accepted a three hour block on my first go. I have only seen three and four hour blocks. I completed my three hour block in two and the delivery area was about 35 min. from my home. Within that two hours, I dropped off 14 packages and made $75. Fourteen packages sounds like a lot, but these were all within a seven mile radius from each other. That’s about $38/ per hour.
Have you guys seen the new motorized scooters zooming around? If you live in a large city, then chances are you have. Well, guess what? They pay people to take them home and charge them.
This is one side hustle that I haven’t tried personally, but I have signed up and completed the training. Waiting on chargers, any day now. Here are some pro’s and con’s based on the bird training that I’ve taken through their app and my friend Domonique’s feedback.
Expected payout: Bird payouts vary quite a bit. This is based on how many you charge at a time and how much charging is required per bird. My friend Domonique has made a range of $30-$73 in one night from charging birds at home.
Bonus side hustle:
It works is a great way to earn extra cash by selling nutritional and beauty products. You don’t even have to leave the house! I personally love this one because you get to use their awesome products and basically get paid to spread the word about it.

So, there are tons of other side hustles that us moms can do in addition to these. However, I highlighted these new side hustles because they pay out really well, include some great benefits and have the potential to become full-time jobs.
