Do you keep your home organized? Have you ever organized an event, be it at school or a birthday party? If yes, then there is no harm in trying event planning to earn some side income. You will have to take care of entertainment, catering, and the venue for the event. You can go for all sorts of event planning or specialize in just one, such as birthday parties. However, as fun and easy, it may sound, a lot can go wrong in practice but rarely. It can also take a lot of time, so make sure you do it on days where you are totally free.

7. Photography

If you have a thing for capturing moments, photography is the side gig for you. Literally, anyone can be good at it if they give it some time, though, and effort. However, make sure that you don’t go for all sorts of photography. Stick to just one and get better at it, such as wedding shoots. The photos you take can also be sold online to certain websites. As much good as this side gig is, it can often become overwhelming and time-consuming. You would have to move out of your house and spend a lot of time to get the perfect shot. 

8. Babysit/Housesit/Petsit

You just have to be good with either babies or pets or in the case of house sitting, with being alone.
