The first and most crucial part to earn money while in college is Perder la Verguenza. You will make zero money if you are thinking about what your friends are going to say. The truth is, they are probably wondering how to make some cash for themselves!

Here is the list of my top seven side hustle ideas for you.

1. Walk Dogs

Many pet owners are busy trying to juggle life-work balance, and they would love your help. Start by asking your neighbors and doing a post on your social media account.

2. Babysit

Make a list of all the people you know that have kids. Call them up and ask let them know you are available. To be ready for this job, I recommend taking a CPR class or a babysitting class. Most local hospitals have free courses, or you can find some online courses through the

3. Take family pictures during the holidays.

7. Clean houses.

This is a job you can do on the weekends or after school. My recommendation is to find clients within your family members or in new residential areas. Make a flyer and post it in the mailbox area. Make sure to partner with your besties to have more than one cleaning at a time. This will save you time, and you will feel comfortable entering other people’s homes.
