50 Awesome Side Hustle Ideas for Active Duty Members, Veterans, & Spouses

50 Side Hustle Ideas While Active Duty (or not!)

 

Sometimes, you want to do MORE. In the Active Duty Passive Income Facebook Group,  a common question asked is, “What are some side hustles I can do while Active Duty/Overseas/Etc. Our outstanding members have contributed to this topic time and time again – and we think it’s time to get these ideas out to our audience!

Choosing a side hustle

If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed with the massive number of ideas, think about how to narrow it down. Here are some tips on choosing your side hustle– and increasing your chances of success:

1. Think about what hobbies, skills, and interests you have. Write them down!

2. Talk to people about your ideas! Talk to family, friends, co-workers about your business ideas. See what they think and start to gauge interest and value in your niche. This will help you determine if there is truly a need for your product/service.

3. You’ll also need to consider how much time you’re able to contribute to whatever business you choose. Once you do that, break it down into how much time you have to put into your idea each week—or even each day. This process can help you determine which category is best for you. During your research, check on start-up and operating costs – you don’t want to be caught by surprise if it’s higher than you expected!

#50: Real Estate Investing!

There are so many options when choosing to participate in real estate investment. It’s not always a full-time job being a landlord. With real estate, you can choose to do short-term rentals (and hire a manager if you want to be more hands-off!), participate as a limited partner in apartment syndications, wholesale properties, and more! If you’re looking to learn more about investing and would like to meet like-minded people, check out our ADPI Facebook Group and our fabulous education options. The possibilities are endless, and we can’t wait to help you on your journey!
