Side hustles haven’t worked for me!

I always see various posts about side hustles and how they make quite a bit of cash in doing different side jobs, etc. I’ve read articles about doing online surveys, participating in data entry for a couple hours, shopping for other people.. I have tried a few things and I haven’t had any success, so far.

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed today due to the fact that it seems nothing thus far has worked. I should probably make a list of the things I’ve tried and perhaps come up with some idea of why I failed.

First thing was Amazon Turk. I’ve done a few things on there and it is worth nothing. Literally just pennies. I feel I’d be paid more to pick up change outside of a fast food restaurant. I think what was frustrating is it seemed I took time and quite a bit of it to do these little assignments and it just was a huge loss of time and I really didn’t gain anything.

Second thing I tried is REV. I posted on this awhile back. I got in and really was excited. I did get paid a bit, this does take time, and quite a lot of it especially if you’re new like I am. You have to score a certain amount after being accepted to move on to make more money as a real “REVVER” My scores were great. Except, the last one I did I received 2 points lower than normal. So unfortunately I was let go. It caused the score to drop at 3.8? I think. It needed to be 4.0. (It was a couple months ago) I could be a bit off about the scoring but nevertheless you get the idea. It is automatic and there’s no one to talk to about it. So I suppose I’ll just try again.

The third side hustle I tried was/is Poshmark. I’m still trying to figure it out. I just joined last month. I’ve not made any money yet but I’m trying to be positive about it and give it time. The women on that site are really great. They’re so kind and they share and like and comment. Super sweet ladies and I’m glad to be there even just for that. I’d like to figure it out better to make some sales.

I also tried survey websites. I didn’t really get ahead on those at all. Not sure if I’m not on the correct site or if those are really just a joke. Let me know if you have a better site to make a little cash from!

I do want to find something on the side. I’m a stay at home Mom and I’d love to make a little extra for some weekend fun with the kids.

Do you have a side hustle? Give me some tips!

  1. Have you tried mystery shopping? You won’t make a ton of money, but it’s a great way to get out of the house on the cheap. I used restaurant shops, hotel shops, bar shops, amusement park shops and even casino shops. Yep, I got paid to gamble, which was pretty surreal.

  2. Wonderful blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
