2. Provide Consultation Services

If you're an expert in your field, offer your services as a consultant to small businesses or entrepreneurs who could benefit from your expertise. For example, if you're a web developer, offer your services to help businesses build their website or improve their online presence. You can provide consultation services completely virtually, which makes it a great option if you're looking for a side hustle you can do from home. Pricing for consultation services varies widely depending on your industry and experience level, so be sure to do your research before setting your rates.
