Bookkeeping has recently been listed as the U.S’s most profitable business. It’s not shocking since it’s super important for small businesses.
If you’d like to just do it a few hours a week at home or make it into your career, bookkeeping is something you’ll enjoy.
You will need some accounting skills for maintaining financial records, but there’s no need to be certified. Since bookkeepers are so vital to many business, it’s no problem getting work.
To start a virtual bookkeeping business, learn the basics from Ben Robinson, former CPA firm owner, and currently teaches those who want to make their own full-time income bookkeeping.
ONLINE FOCUS GROUPS
You won’t be rich by doing surveys, but it’s okay.
It’s a surefire way to get a decent side income. The surveys are not difficult to complete and can even be fun sometimes.
After signing up, you’ll get an email notifying you whenever there’s a survey available.
To get notified of a lot of survey opportunities, sign up for Survey Junkie.
They have the highest TrustPilot rating and has an A rating with the BBB.
They’re also #1 due to their entertaining surveys, like rating new music. It only takes a minute to register and get started. It’s also 100% free to use Survey Junkie.
GET A REMOTE JOB
The fastest way to work from home is finding a company that hires workers to work remotely.
This is definitely easier than it sounds if you’ve never done it before.
The good thing is that companies are hiring remote workers even more than ever. They also offer benefits, a salary, and other opportunities.
A job site that I recommend is Flexjobs.
Flexjob vets each listing (more than 30,000) to make sure they are legit.
The catch? Flexjobs is a paid membership.
To get the whole job listing, you’ll have to sign up for the $14.95 monthly membership. Due to this, the quality of these job listings are definitely worth the small cost.
You can see which jobs are available for free. After you find something you like, you can cancel membership anytime as there’s no contract.

Manage Small Business’s Social Media
The most desirable thing for local businesses are high quality leads. If you can generate leads, you won’t have to look for work again.
Currently the best way to get new leads is by using social media.
The top social media managers charge around $10,000 a month with a percentage of revenue. If you’re a SMM worth your salt, you’ll be charging $3,000 to $5,000 per month.
A lot of beginners are surprised after getting paid $1,000 to $2,000 a month per client.
Even though you’ve just started, you can create a profitable business quick.
The great thing is that it’s one of the most steadiest income streams online.

Blogging is one of the top side hustles which can turn into multi million dollar businesses. Of course if you just want to provide for your family or become a digital nomad, it’s a completely legit way to live.
You don’t have to be a technology wiz to start a blog. You can learn at your own pace, and learn new things as you go a long. I’m still learning new days everyday myself.
GET INTO DIVIDEND STOCKS
Dividends are the largest and most predictable streams of money since there was ever a stock market.
I recommend opening an account with Acorns.
The great thing about Acorns is that you don’t have to know about investing nor have money to invest.
Let Acorn know your financial goals and it gives you a portfolio that’s aimed to meet those goals.
After opening, use Found Money which enables you to get cash that goes into your Acorns account when you shop at specific stores like Walmart, Lyft, Nike, Airbnb & more.
Let’s say you drop $100 at a Walmart. Acorn invests a certain percentage of that $100 automatically. Sometimes up to 10%.
Another great thing about Acorns is the option to invest spare change. You can round-up your store purchases to the nearest dollar. So for example, if you made a purchase of $15.20, Acorns will set .80 cents for investing.
By using Found Money and investing spare change, you can create a pretty nice portfolio in the background which can earn you a steady stream of income.
With a 4.7 rating and over 4 million users, Acorns is the fastest growing finance app on the market.
Love to do research about new things and trends? Freelance writing could be righ for you.
You’ll always need to be learning about new topics or niches, since you’ll have to write about them. If you’re a writing veteran or complete newbie, it’s pretty easy to get into this industry.
It’ll take some elbow work to get your first job and finding your niche.
The great thing about freelance writing is you can have clients on retainer. You can have 3 clients each paying you $1,000 for your writing service.
