The 4 BEST Side Hustles To Start In 2021

The 4 BEST Side Hustles To Start In 2021

see so check this out i bought the couch
that's going to be a super solid easy
double on my money
then the dirt bike and atv they both
sold within the same day it was
absolutely crazy
hey what's going on everyone hang out
coming back at you with a brand new
video and in this one we're going to be
taking a
very different approach from the typical
ecommerce or real estate content
i want to explain to you some very very
creative ways that you could utilize
depending on your location your
situation to make some extra money
these are all things that i've very
closely seen i know people who do or
i've done myself
as i'm gonna explain in this video so if
you're looking for some extra cash
towards the end of the year or depending
on when you're watching this
make sure to drop a like down below and
if you have any questions i would
encourage you to leave those throughout
the video in the comment section as i'm
always super active in there
so i first want to address the word side
hustle it kind of might have a little
bit of bad connotation people toking
about do surveys online
none of that crap this is actually kind
of entertaining to do some of this stuff
is
is super fun and actually involves you
being able to learn a lot build a great
skill and also have
some really cool toys let's put it like
that as you saw in the intro
the dirt bike the atv there's a lot of
fun stuff that you can do
to make money you just have to be
willing to step a little bit not very
far but just
a little bit outside your comfort zone
that's all it really takes
so in this video i want to go through
three or four things i honestly don't
even remember how many i have on my list
now but they're super cool there's some
really great things that people don't
really tok about because
typically you need experience and this
might be scary for some people
to sell some of these things and just to
do some of this stuff but it's really
cool stuff that again can make you some
great extra money on the side you can do
this while you still have a full-time
job
you can do it you're a full-time student
it really doesn't matter it's very
similar to e-commerce
which is not going to be a point inside
of this video i know that's the stuff
that we typically tok about
on the channel which by the way right
now our christmas sale is officially
starting for our ecommerce program
you can save 50 off on that as well as
getting an additional
20 hour training program for free
showing you everything start to finish
how to build a six seven and eight
figure e-commerce business
blah blah blah blah blah all that stuff
is down below but we're going to tok
about in this video i want to kind of
start it off from an interesting point
i think i've seen maybe one or two
people
tok about it i don't really know the
exact names i don't remember the people
this is something i've seen i don't have
the most experience with it but i do
know people from a general perspective
who do this on a broader scale
so this is relating to furniture now
whenever you're starting a side hustle
i always recommend that you niche it
down right and you'll see that
throughout this video everything's very
niche inside of something bigger
so let's take furniture for an example
right the idea of furniture you could
flip
furniture right but what's more specific
than furniture couches what's more
specific than couches
one type of couch a sectional okay and
this is where i would personally
recommend you niche down if you want to
take advantage of this cool strategy
so at least in my local area here in
arizona we have access to a few really
cool free platforms to use
offer up is one of them facebook
marketplace and craigslist
anywhere in the us has access to that
i'm sure wherever you live
there's something relating to that i
don't know if craigslist is worldwide or
whatnot but there's always places where
you can sell stuff for free
and there's many more that i'm sure i am
forgetting so take a quick look at this
picture this is about 20 feet away
in my bedroom i recently purchased this
couch off of offer up
used from a lady who moved into an
apartment and it was too big
now i wanted a couch in my room for a
short period of time i'm actually moving
out of this house i already know for
certain
that that couch will not fit where i'm
moving into it just
there is no place for it it will have no
purpose i spent 600
on the couch she had it listed for 8.50
now when i got there obviously you do a
little bit of negotiation a little bit
of haggling i said look i'll give you
cash right now i'll literally leave
from right here i'll go pick up a u-haul
truck i'll be back in 20 minutes
that's what sealed the deal so always
being there cash in hand very upfront
with a reasonable
but discounted offer that was kind of my
strategy
now if you take a look throughout offer
up which is where i purchased this couch
from and you could reference all these
other websites craigslist facebook
you want to get a sense of what the
typical price point is now similar to
buying real estate below the average
national median which
has a lot less risk you could take the
same approach with furniture
specifically
sectionals figure out what a good
average price is for something of a
general size in good condition
and then just buy stuff for less than
that right you might not make huge home
run hits but if you can
obviously rent a u-haul truck if you
don't have a big truck that might be a
40
expense but you go pick up three or four
couches right and then you can have them
all at your house
or wherever it is you want to put them
and then people can come check it out
and then pick it up from there
you don't need to offer delivery unless
you want to up charge for that service
so here's what i did i found a beautiful
condition sectional ended up scoring it
for just 600 bucks
i know that i could easily list that for
twelve thirteen fourteen hundred dollars
and it would sell very quickly
now what's crazy i've notiked on offer
up specifically more so than craigslist
more so than facebook marketplace the
good deals they go very quick right you
have to have to be active
so one thing that you should focus on is
always staying up to date maybe set a
reminder every three hours and double
check the platform
that's something i was doing because it
took me like three days to find the deal
on the sectional
because i knew i wanted to make some
money when i sold it just you know for
the extra effort that i went through to
get it
so the couch flipping specifically
sectionals can be such a great value
and i think that a couch has kind of a
standard value it's really not that big
but a sectional where it's you know an l
shape with like a chase lounger
maybe it has a huge ottoman in the
middle of it like that is such a bigger
piece of furniture and it's such a great
value
but at the same time you need to
recognize a sectional doesn't need to
necessarily cost you more
than a regular couch i'll throw up some
screenshots i mean you can get them for
just a couple hundred bucks these are
some i'm seeing right now
that are literally posted in the last
like five hours so the 90 i can dig
deeper
but there's also ones listed for
thousands of dollars i mean it's
absolutely crazy
what's the difference between them not
much i mean you could even get something
that's completely destroyed
smells like cat piss and then you pay a
hundred dollars to get it professionally
cleaned
clean it up remarket it it's just kind
of like flipping a house or a car right
very similar strategy
now the second thing i want to tok
about also revolves
around using craigslist using facebook
using offroad
and you can do this with any niche
because you could flip a lot of
different stuff now by the way
if you're buying something off offer up
and that's the only place they had it
listed
when you go to sell you can just beat
them in the marketing put it on
facebook put it on craigslist and put it
on offer up right you just take better
photos and there you go you can make it
have a lot
better of an image and you can get so
much more attention from it now
this second point is something really
cool my dirt bike
and my atv these were both things i
think both of them i bought off offer
upper one-off offer up one off
craigslist
a while ago i grew up always having fun
here and there on dirt bikes and atvs i
always wanted one
but you know i lived in california i was
spending a lot of time traveling i don't
really have a place to put it so a year
ago when i moved into a big house i was
right next to
thousands of miles of state land that i
could go ride on
i was like hey let's go grab a couple of
these now i know what to look for and
this is where studying is always
key any side also you have to do it's
not just a magic piece of money right
you have to learn something so i
understood the bikes i understood the
value i studied the value in the area
because in arizona buying things like
that is a lot more expensive than back
where i grew up in minnesota
that's just the market out here so i
found a great deal on both an atv
and a dirt bike right and i used them i
had a little bit of fun
and then when i went to sell them
because i wasn't using them anymore
i kid you not within an hour actually
within like 20 minutes of posting i had
multiple messages i had multiple people
who said they wanted to pay
cash and come tonight now keep in mind i
posted this
at like six o'clock it gets dark out in
arizona or this time of year
around six o'clock people wanted to come
look at it in the dark
with cash because they were afraid that
they were gonna miss out on the deal
here's what that told me the competition
for things like this
is insane so if you can just scour the
market even go to estate sales garage
sales
look on all these different platforms
and access everything you can
find something of value and you can
easily flip it on these platforms
now what's cool the kids it was two two
young guys about my age who came to pick
up the dirt bike
they flipped like 200 of them this is
what they do for a living maybe even
more
they bought the dirt bike and saw my atv
and they said hey is that for sale i'm
like yeah i was thinking about listing
it because i haven't listed it yet
they said what do you want for it i told
them the number great deal i knew it was
underpriced
they said okay we'll get more cash we'll
be buying because it was like sunday
they said we'll be by tomorrow
because we got to get the money and so
they went to the bank came the next day
with their trailer again
and that was it those were sold within
24 hours
i got full list price there was no
negotiation nothing crazy
and that's also because i wanted to get
them gone quick so i didn't focus on
trying to get the maximum dollar
but you can make money so you see here
it's all about the speed of these things
like this stuff
moves quick on these platforms if it's a
good deal
and just to be honest i think that
strategy of flipping stuff
is what's always going to be there it's
never going to change the stuff that
people flip might change
but i was actually speaking with one of
my good friends the other day about this
and i said look if i just start from
zero
and who knows maybe that'll be a youtube
series sometime but it doesn't make
sense to put in the time to
to do that for no reason um the thing
that i would do
personally that i would start is i would
flip stuff because that'd be a really
easy way in my opinion to turn a couple
hundred into a couple thousand
turn the couple thousand into a few more
thousand it's hard to really scale
you could flip cars but that takes time
there's more things to look at i would
stik with like the the
hundred dollar thousand dollar items
that can move pretty quick
um you know stuff like that maybe get
into dirt bikes and whatnot if you know
the the mechanics or lawn mowers
whatever
i would stay in that range i'd get my 3
000 5000 and i would put it right back
into ecommerce and get something working
that's just the skill that i've built so
i think that that's such a great way to
start now number three that i'm going to
give you here
is so far separated from that that you
might even click off this video because
it sounds weird but check this out
and i promise you this nobody on youtube
has ever toked about this
ever and if they have i'd be very
surprised i'll even give you a dollar
for finding that video
citrus tree shakedowns
what is that hayden this sounds weird
okay so check this out
i live in arizona on my property on my
one acre
i have 26 citrus trees just in the
backyard and i have like another seven
in the front yard
those are a mix of naval orange trees
lemon trees regular citrus trees
grapefruit trees all of that stuff well
trees like that require more upkeep than
normal trees
this isn't something you might be able
to do every day but you can do it every
day during a certain three month window
of the year
okay after fruit season is over which
pretty much starts now in december
until april or may all throughout summer
and really towards the winter
you want to do what's called shaking
down your tree this is something that i
have my yard guys do i recently paid
them a thousand dollars to do it okay
took them two guys about three hours and
making like 140 an hour each
absolutely great right what they do is
they remove
all of the fruit from the trees the old
fruit the dead fruit the ones that
didn't grow in fully the ripe fruit and
just anything
because you have to take it all off to
do two things keep the tree healthy
as well as let fruit grow the next year
to really get good fruit
and trust me i love fresh fruit so what
i did
is i paid them to do it and i was
actually at home when they were doing it
i watched i was like
that looks so easy i mean my trees are
like 13 14 feet tall
so you need a ladder of some sort but
they didn't even use ladder they had
this big-ass stik and they're just
like literally knocking everything down
just shaking all the leaves off the
trees kind of knocking down some small
branches
like just just going to town it kind of
looked like fun i wanted to go out and
ask for a swing and just
right but it was cool to see and it got
me thinking i was like
look these guys did it in three four
hours sure they're experts and there's
two of them that means you could do one
in a day
a thousand dollars they knock it all
down and then pick it all up and get it
out of there
that's it so you might not have to do a
yard this big but if you live in a
climate anywhere california utah idaho
arizona
anywhere kind of on the west coast where
there's like apple orchards citrus
groves anything like that
could present an opportunity and i
understand this might not work for
everyone just due to your location
it's just one idea right be creative
that's the whole purpose of the side
hustle business
is to make money on the side to either
grow that
into a business right you could grow
lawn care into a business
this is a niche specific point inside of
the lawn care right
it's just like in inside of the
furniture flipping couch flipping
sectional flipping lawn care tree
maintenance
citrus tree shake downs right so just
something specific always try to niche
it down
but you can build a business off that or
if you're just trying to get extra
capital to maybe start a business
or to pay for student loan or it could
be anything right so that's the cool
point
about having a side hustle is you can do
it on the side this could be a weekend
job it could just be something you do
for fun like the dirt bike stuff that
could be a lot of fun those kids the
young guys that
bought the bike and quad for me they
look like they have a lot of fun they're
showing me videos and ripping around the
desert
and they get to enjoy the stuff while
they're flipping it so i just thought
that was really cool
now the fourth point i want to give you
real quick relates to freelancing i love
love love the concept of freelancing
online
this is something i did to start making
it was like an extra three to five
hundred bucks a month it wasn't crazy
but at the time
it sure was because that really helped
me save up and fund my e-commerce
business
which is what i wanted to do long-term
right so inside of the freelance space
here's something i see of value and you
could find so many things inside the
freelance space but always niche down
video editing services okay this is
something that is really cool for one
partikular reason
you're getting paid a flat fee you're
almost never working hourly
and so as you get better at something
like video editing let's say you're
getting
40 for a video that it takes you an hour
right but eventually you can figure out
how to do it in 40 minutes
30 minutes 25 minutes and eventually you
can hire someone else and if you want
you can build it into a business
but you can do these things quicker and
quicker and the client doesn't care in
fact they would love to have it quicker
right it's not based around time then
you can start taking on more work and
you can make more money in that same
period of time
because you got better at a skill and
you're more productive
it's the same thing like learning about
trees you'd have to learn about it
learning about dirt bikes you'd have to
learn about it couches you'd have to
learn about it
there is no side hustle where there's no
effort and no learning
so i just really hope i'm getting the
message across don't look for some magic
bullet there's no
you know wha hurrah stuff that just like
you press a button and it makes you a
thousand dollars every time
it it'd be cool but it wouldn't offer
anybody any value so
you always got to look for value i
really do hope that those four points
gave you some great clarity obviously
ecommerce can be considered a bonus
point because a lot of people do it on
the side it really doesn't take a lot of
startup capital if you're doing the drop
shipping business model
that's something great that you can
start with again we break all that stuff
down
inside of our program which right now
for the next week or so it really
depends on when you're watching this
during the christmas promo you guys can
save 50 off as well as getting access to
an additional
20 hours or more worth of training that
covers everything live you get to watch
me screen record finding many products
building multiple shopify stores
redesigning existing stores all the way
through opening ad accounts running blah
blah blah
literally everything all the way through
scaling to multiple millions of dollars
a month in sales so
if you want to watch that process for
just a couple hundred bucks always focus
on educating yourself that's something i
preach it's something i live by myself
so i got books and buy courses all the
time but i hope you guys enjoyed this
video i hope it gave you some
maybe some ideas even if you don't do
any of these four specific things if it
sparks an idea
it makes you start thinking creatively
about things that you could do in your
area
there's always value to that so i really
hope you enjoyed the video it would mean
a lot to me if you guys
drop a like down below drop a comment as
well let me know what your favorite side
hustle
is if there's something you've either
tried or really want to try

kind of pretty creative so you guys let
