Side Hustle - "Something you do outside your traditional job to earn money in order to pursue your main interest"

I wondering if anyone has any interesting side hustles to earn extra money to feed their stacking habits. I know that people do a variety of things to earn extra cash such as freelancing web design, proof reading and blog writing. I have imported trainers (weird but quite profitable for a time) and currently work as a venue manager in my spare time. I still like the idea of importing/creating a product to sell online.

What's your hustle (so that I can steal your idea and be rich)?

I used to import & grow certain corals from the USA. It was great for a year or 2 & it paid for a deposit for my 1st house. It all went tits up when everyone wanted to do the same thing which it then became a barely profitable thing so I stopped. I am always on the look for the next hustle, its generally telling my dad I would like more money from work this week :D

I'm in the Foreign Exchange industry so get to see plenty of world banknotes,  currently accumulating fancy serial number US banknotes which have a large following and mark up. Also with the release of the first book on replacement banknotes there seems to be a growing interest in that now.

Surprised nobody has mentioned flipping silver and gold.

If you have no sentimental ties to your stack, if you can make a couple of quid flipping your £20 kook for £25, your stack will increase in size with those couple of bob profits you get here and there selling.

I used to fix my parents neighbours cars a few years back for a few quid until I joined the railway and started to maintain trains for a living.

Once I earned £25 for my knowledge for two minutes work swapping over HT leads as the car was 180 degrees out on timing. They gladly handed the money over to my surprise as their car was stopped for nearly a month because of a previous mechanic overhauling the engine who cocked up!

I don't fix anyone's car but my own nowadays and have just traded a 1/4 proof 2012 sovereign for my time in my mate's garage on the jacks for a few jobs. I'm still quids in.

I used to make and sell moustache wax, beard oils and beard balms. I used to supply a few trendy local barbers and sell online. I was also in early talks with a well known London shop who wanted my product but with their branding.

It was fun while it lasted and I made some decent money but it took up more of my time than I was prepared to dedicate. Especially as the brand took off. 

You may be surprised at the size of the competition out there in the hirsute grooming world.

If you're good at writing, try blogging. Just write up a topic that you're good at and share it relentlessly until you get a sizable pool of followers.

I've got a blog that I hardly use. It's linked in subject to a twitter account I run. The twitter account has 35,000 followers but the blog has hardly any. I've considered dedicating more time to the blog and monetising it but I'm a lazy sod.

Ugh. Yeah, I know maintaining a blog is a lot of hard work. But if it goes off, you'll surely generate lots of money from it. 35k followers is a lot, specially if you convert them to blog visitors.

Horse racing each way arbing, as explained in the Cheltenham thread. 

Very good race tomorrow 2:50 Warwick.

 

Couple of good races at Royal Ascot to smash for EW arbs:

Tues 4:20 - St James's Palace Stakes
Fri 4:20 - Coronation Stakes

So long as they remain 8 runners or more then you will easily be able to get each way arbs on these race

My side hustle is crypto currencies - Litecoin and Ethereum mainly, sometimes Bitcoin. I trade directly on GDAX as day trader, sometimes the days are good, sometimes I screwed myself, but that's the risk over it. 

My other hustle is gift cards, I flip gift cards and vouchers of big chains and make a profit over them, as well as I top up Subway Subcards for free Footlongs and trade them in. 

I know it's not a big deal, but every penny is important, as long as you make money on the side and of course satisfy my main "addiction" - Gold coins!
