Do you want a bit of extra cash in the pocket at the end of the month? Who doesn’t, right? If you’re a teacher looking to make some extra money in your spare time, then you’re certainly in the right place.
Keep on reading for everything you need to know about side hustles and gigs that are especially well-suited to teachers.
Get your Side Gigs On!
So you’re teaching English in your home country, or abroad, but perhaps you’re wishing that you were making a lot more money? It’s a sad fact that teachers around the globe are often overworked, and underpaid.
Whether you want to earn a couple hundred dollars extra per month to pay some bills, or if you want to find a way to get out of the classroom, you’ll need to check out this new book, Side Gigs for Teachers: Ways to Actually Make Money on Amazon.
You’ll learn how to make money in your spare time so that you can live the life you want. Financial freedom really is within your grasp.
An additional income stream besides your day job is the new job security these days.
Active vs. Passive Income Streams
In the book, you’ll learn all about two kinds of income streams: active and passive. You’ll also learn why it’s much preferable to work on passive streams! Of course, we’ll explain how to get started doing this so don’t worry.
The first part of the book is all about building active income streams. By active, we mean that one hour of work equals one hour of pay. If you need money fast, then this is what you should start with. In Side Gigs for Teachers, you’ll learn about tutoring, working as a virtual assistant, ghost writing resumes, and 11 other equally awesome things.
You can do as little, or as much as you want. If you need only an extra hundred dollars a month, work only a couple hours a week on it. If you want to turn it into your full-time job, that’s possible too.
Passive income requires a lot of work (or capital) up-front, but then you can keep earning money for months, or years down the road. The major downside is that it can take months or even years to start earning any money at all, so it might not work for some.
In the book, for passive income streams, you can find information about investing in the stock market, Etsy, teaching online courses, and four more equally good ideas.

Jackie Bolen and Jennifer Booker Smith met way back in the day while they were both teaching English in South Korea. Since that time, they’re collaborated on more than 20 books, while developing various side gigs on their own.
