If you check out this page that outlines our journey to debt freedom, you’ll see that we were making enormous debt payments. How were we able to pay off thousands of dollars each month? Garrett and I were both employed full time, but then we also started a side hustle.
1. Learn Digital Marketing & SEO
Using skills from my day job as a digital marketer, we started a side hustle helping bloggers and small businesses.
But, we decided it wasn’t enough. We decided we wanted to help even more people.
That’s why we’ve launched our business, Side Hustle, LLC!
I know we’ve been hinting for some number of months, but I waited until everything was officially official before making an official announcement.
Side Hustle, LLC has been our side hustle for some time now. We’ve been grinding and hustling day in, day out. Anyone who follows us on Twitter knows exactly how much side hustling we’ve been doing. 🙂
Our mission at Side Hustle, LLC is to help others establish their side hustles, especially those side hustles that involve digital marketing and search engine optimization. There are millions of small businesses and freelancers across the country who need help to grow, but they can’t afford big agency rates. Enter our online training courses, which give almost anyone the ability to learn digital marketing and SEO to help themselves or to help others.
If you’re eager to learn SEO for personal or professional reasons, then head to SEOAuditGuide.com.
We love what we do and because we have a ton of experience to share, we want others to benefit. There are a lot of websites out there that need help! Seriously. Not a month goes by where someone isn’t asking us for help.
On top of all the small businesses that need help, there are so many side hustlers, freelancers, and full-time professionals who want to expand their skills. SEO courses are the perfect way to meet the demand.
We’ve made a lot of money in SEO and helped many small businesses along the way. SEO (and some frugality)
will be how we made it possible for us to crush all of our debt this year. 😉

2. Make Money Using Skills You Have Today
Consulting businesses are easy to get off the ground since you sell your time and expertise. Whatever your day job is might be the kind of work that can translate into a consulting business.
3. Sell Your Clutter
If you’re like us, you have stuff lying around that you don’t use anymore. Craigslist or Kijiji are online marketplaces. Items are listed at a fixed price. Once it sells, the buyer and the seller meet to complete the transaction. I’ve sold items on both eBay and Craigslist; they are both user-friendly and easy to set up. Selling your clutter won’t make you rich, but it can help get you out of debt a little faster.
4. Complete Legit Online Surveys
If you’re at the very beginning of your side hustle journey and you want something easy, something you can do from anywhere, something that sends work your way, you can complete online surveys for money. Looking for something hands off? Download the Nielsen app to your devices. (aff link)
5. Create a Website/Blog and/or an Online Course
Creating a website is consuming and the rewards aren’t necessarily immediate. It takes time to build a website and drive traffic to it using SEO or social media. However, it can pay rewards for months or years into the future. Read this post at SEOAuditGuide.com to find out exactly how to get started.
