There are several apps that are available that can help you get more utilization out of it and cash in at the same time. Uber and Lyft dominate the rideshare space, while there are a number of apps in the delivery game but DoorDash has garnered 65 percent of the market.


For those with a good ear, grasp of language and strong attention to detail, transcribing the text for audios and/or videos could be the side hustle for you. Those who are interested in this kind of work can use platforms like Rev and TranscribeMe to monetize their skills.

Freelance writing

Those who have a talent for the written word can put it to use doing freelance writing for companies, magazines or individuals. The work can include writing articles, managing a blog or proofreading.
