It wasn’t long ago that I was working part-time at Trader Joes and my husband Silas was working crazy hours at a soul-sucking, low-paid corporate job.
We needed a way to make some extra money because the car had broken down and we just about scraping through our bill payments.
Fast forward 4 years later and we’re in a totally different place financially. How? The internet, side hustles, and passive income.
Before the internet came along, side hustle ideas were harder to come by, but these days, narrowing down a list to only 40 ways to make $100 a day is pretty hard!
Even if you’re just looking for some quick cash temporarily, I totally believe that making extra money on the side can change your life for the better.
Heres’ how making extra money changed our lives:
- It helped my husband leave that soul-sucking corporate job.
- It stopped us scraping by and living paycheck to paycheck.
- It assisted us in paying off all our debts and reaching financial freedom.
- It enabled us to dream positively again about our future.
- It meant we could travel the world full-time while working for ourselves.
We started a blog and never looked back. (For more on this idea click here.)

Starting a blog changed me and my husband’s lives.
Although we’ve not technically included this in our official list above, we had to mention this since we talked in our introduction about how starting a blog changed our lives.
Several years ago, we listened to an interview with blogger Rosemarie Groner who’d started making $5,000 per month within only a few months of blogging.
We made a Pinterest account and started joining group boards so the pins we made linking to our site would reach lots of people (more on that step here.)
We ended up making $19,000 in our 8th-month blogging.
Since 2016 this is how we’ve been making our full-time living—by ad revenue from people viewing our site. It’s been hard work and has taken some time, but it’s been totally worth it.
And there’s literally no reason why this couldn’t work for you too. At least starting out as a side hustle, but one day becoming your full-time job! Go for it!
