With the Coronavirus pandemic worsening, an increasing number of citizens are doing their jobs from home. Or worse yet, they no longer have one. And while many are now twiddling their thumbs and wondering how to make rent, it’s not the time to panic – an online side hustle could be your savior.
Formally known as a side job, a side hustle or side gig is a means to make extra money on top of your income, by taking up an extra job. As of 2019, 49% of Americans under the age of 35 had a side hustle, and particularly in these trying times it has never been more necessary to find one.
But now that most people are confined to their homes, the best ways to make money on the side should be based online. So, which one is right for you? By consulting the stars, experts at PsychicWorld.com have revealed the best online side hustles to pick up, based on your star sign!
