10 OF THE BEST SIDE-HUSTLES FOR WOMEN TO MAKE EXTRA INCOME
TRAINING / TUTORING AS A SIDE-HUSTLE
As an individual, woman, in this case, I believe you should have something you can teach. Interestingly, everyone has something they need to learn as well. Meanwhile, it isn’t just easy to find someone who will pay you for knowledge impaction.
First off, ask yourself, “what can I teach that others will be willing to know?”. You can teach people make-up, you can teach people how to make hair, you can teach how to play a musical instrument, you can teach campus courses and preparation for professional exams, you can teach how to cook, the list is limitless.
Mind yourself, don’t jump on teaching people about something you know nothing about, you might just end your hustling career even before you start. Only teach what you have deep knowledge about.
USHERING / BAR-TENDING
As regards this, the timing is flexible and no special skill is required, making them great side-hustles. In most cases, you can find somewhere that will allow timing negotiations. With bar-tending, more often than not, you will end up on late night shifts.
However, there is a huge money making opportunity from this hustle. On weekends, you can work at weddings, funerals, and owambe‘s attending to guests. Well, you might have to be willing to work at nights or weekends to keep up with this hustle. As you may think, you will make more money from this hustle if you are sociable. And as you may not think, this hustle is not meant for you if you are too proud and unsubmissive.
CATERING SERVICES AND BAKING
This is the side-hustle that deals with providing food or food-related services, either for sale purposes or at a remote site or a site such as a hotel, public house (pub), campuses, or other location. Meanwhile, Catering has evolved to become an artisanal affair. There are varieties of catering services now, most of which don’t even require you to own a restaurant. You can cook for parties, you can as well work as a personal chef. Top of all, you can acquire basic baking skills and make cakes for birthdays, wedding and similar events.

RUNNING SHARP TRADES
Trading is one of the sharpest side-hustles. Reason being that it requires little knowledge of a subject and no particular skill, in most cases, it is hardly technical. In fact, lots of ladies are making millions by just trading.

Some trades actually do not need much convincing of customers, some don’t need your physical presence, and some don’t need a starting capital. Once you know your potential customers and what they need, solve their problems by supplying them with such needs. Meanwhile, take feasibility studies before jumping on a trade, some of them might not be worth the effort.
