When I was younger, I flipped men's road bicycles. Buy for $40, sell for $100, repeat. It was incredibly easy and fun and made for some quick spending cash. I did that for about 3 years in my spare time and sold roughly 60-80 bikes. I don't even like riding bikes.

A year ago I started renting out a house I own. That has been pretty fun as well. Each time I get that rental cash I feel like a king.

[–]Dinosaurguy2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I did the bike hustle too, learned some basic bike mechanic skills and turned good profits!

i flip iphones. Basically getting them at a good deal and selling them for a 30-40% profit. I buy broken ones too and repair them - thus i get even more cash back.

[–]budfox2617 points18 points  (5 children) | Copy

I do share trading on this side. Have been for the last eight years and am hoping to make it a primary income by the ten year mark.

I'm a full time bartender on the face of it.

[–]BusterVadge30 points31 points  (6 children) | Copy

I own a few niche websites that bring me money with amazon affiliates program, adsense, and shopify.

One of my Amazon sites alone made me 22k last year and I put only 200 hours of work on it. The site is 2 years old and the initial setup and SEO work was a LOT of hours but really I could stop working on it today and still make a good passive income.

I could live off of the money I make on my side projects but I love what I do in my "normal" career and the side income goes straight into investment and traveling to fun places.

[–]crespo_modesto8 points9 points  (2 children) | Copy

Man that's solid, if you had a few of those man you wouldn't have to work except minor up keep. Travel the world, be a DN. Freedom.

I saw on the affiliates program like if you don't sell anything within 180 days or something they close the account. Makes sense but I kind of wish I didn't start it until I had something that could actually use it. I tried to put it into a Medium "blog" but the links wouldn't parse on Medium.

[–]BusterVadge4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

I started with AA in the early 2000's. I threw up a shitty website and they approved me. They must be more strict about it now since between like 2001 and 2014 I didn't sell a single product but I was able to remain in the program.

[–]crespo_modesto2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Well the success you've made sounds good. I personally could live on that yearly, until having to pay back student loans.

Props, I hope to achieve what you have as well at some point. creating a product/service as trading hours for money sucks.

I teach auto repair one night a week at my old college. I might increase it to two classes in the future, maybe do the air conditioning class since that's my main department at my day job as a mechanic.

One class pretty much pays my rent and utilities. I think I'll enroll in the pension plan next year, since it's a state college and I get all those benefits.

[–]Original_Dankster11 points12 points  (2 children) | Copy

I run an AirBnB in a spare room. I live in a trendy, central and desirable neighbourhood, so I get pretty good occupancy rates... And if I want nobody over for a while, I just block it off ahead of time. I'm thinking about buying a smaller unit in my same condo building to rent out a second piece of property.

I also bought extra parking spots in my condo building. I rent them out to other residents for pretty much what it cost me to debt finance them, but once they're paid off, that's easy passive income, and with a parking shortage in my building, I can flip them for a profit if I ever decide to do so.

Lastly, on top of my full time job, I have a part time job - I'm in the Army Reserves (similar to National Guard for the US).

Edit: I should note Air BnB is NOT passive income. There's a cleaning, laundry and logistics to do between guests. If you go for longer term guests (e.g. one month stays or longer) there's less work, but you can make more money with shorter term guests if you're willing to accept the risk of vacancy more frequently and don't mind the effort.

[–]driticool2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

If you bought another unit, have you counted how long it would take to pay itself before it would bring you profit?

[–]Original_Dankster2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I can buy a bachelor apartment in my building, 25% downpayment and get a 25 year mortgage at about 3% interest... Then assuming a 40% vacancy rate, given all the numbers crunched - I'd break even. Any higher than that (and that's likely since I'm in a central, desirable neighbourhood) I would generate profit. I could make up to $1200 a month on a second unit.

Of course if the vacancy rate is worse (not the case in my experience with my current joint) there's risk.

[–]crespo_modesto17 points18 points  (20 children) | Copy

Not sure if freelancing counts as a side hustle, that's what I do on top of my day job working in a restaurant.

I'm a "full stack" developer. I always feel silly saying that. The tough part about it is if you don't have consistent work. Most recently I had a long term client and I had a long list of things to do and I just chipped away at it when I had the time and invoiced. Underpaid but it was interesting work that covered different things from encrypted static data storage to building some APIs like accepting emails as an input and also I got to learn how to build a subscription system with Stripe's API, mostly reading docs but cool nonetheless.

Now without that constant work, just before my days off I hit up a crowd sourcing site and bid on a bunch of jobs, get them ready. Most recently I did a JSON to XML job with PHP pretty cool job paid practically nothing. Bidding on jobs to me is a waste of time, but then again if you actually were paid well you would be able to handle the down time eg. time not spent coding. Also sleep pattern, I recently slept through a job offer and someone else did it ahh well.

I recently discovered too, it's better to just say "Yes I can do the job" versus getting too specific or offering too much right away.

day job working in a restaurant.

I'm a "full stack" developer... The tough part about it is if you don't have consistent work.

You freelance as a software developer and have a restaurant day job? Are you applying for full time software position at a company? That's obviously the most consistent work. Then you can work at a restaurant at night if you want.

[–]crespo_modesto6 points7 points  (12 children) | Copy

I understand, it comes down to lack of experience eg. not good enough. Also don't have a car, but mostly it's the former.

So I can pick up random jobs online that are not tied to specific framework/stack I'm tied to LAMP right now which means sites built on PHP/MySQL. No front end frameworks either at this time. I'm looking to make the switch to "compiled" languages like Java/C#. Also I get dinged on jobs that require a degree, I don't have a degree.

Most jobs I find are either tied to Microsoft eg. NET/C-language/Sql-server or using a framework Laravel/React/Angular or Node which I barely have experience in. I've tried them all but not consistent like I spent some months learning Python Django, but didn't end up using it daily.

As a single person I'm pretty free, I'm just tied down with student loans, trying to come up with online business but have no ideas at this time. Just trying to make enough to afford this expensive ass apartment(relative to me/my income). My credit's destroyed too, working on that, the possibility of being homeless is in the back of my mind.

But yeah I have all the "main skills" though but I'm behind like CI/CD, containerization, I can't do any of that. But user login/sign up, session handling, multi-tenant db design, front-end ui from sketch to HTML/CSS/JS I can do that. But again not using latest tech build automation, components, templating...

Ughh sorry, text diarrhea

[–]ReddJive2 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy

feeling generous. want a business idea? PM me.

[–]crespo_modesto2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

I don't know... haha. I was sucked into a several month thing that ended up going nowhere. My code was erased too by someone else's code ahh.

I also almost got sucked into this one startup's "workforce" I guess... their onboarding thing said "This developer here put in 40 hours for us and we bought him a nice meal!" It's one of those, join for a couple of years you can get some payout in the future.

I don't know sure, I'm open to discussion, I'm definitely not a business person though. Sucks, task doer is what I am, I wonder are some people just naturally entrepreneurs.

I also still have some other work going on, so don't have too much time but anything that could yield to something is interesting.

[–]F0rward-6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yes I've had several people try and rope me into the whole

"I have the idea, you have the skills. So do 98% of the work coding and developing my idea, and if it ever goes anywhere we will split the profit"

Or even worse they say something like a 70/30 split, 99.9% of those ideas will never go anywhere so it's best not to waste your time.

[–]crespo_modesto1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah that's what happened to me, though I gotta admit I was the dumb one. Let's be partners... 70/30 split not in my favor.

When you have red flags like the site sharing the same domain name as a different existing, pre-established site, but with a different spelling (incorrect spelling) and trying to deploy an image-heavy site in a place where the average network speed is 150kbps.

Man I screwed it up though, like asynchronous events with lazy loading blur up images. I removed jQuery to get rid of that initial 30-80KB to load, but I screwed up some of the site converting to plain JS. Also trying to use defer/async methods and the dom rendering/things not binding working right. That sucks that network constraint and trying to condense everything, minifying code, caching. It's cool the challenge but needed more time.

It's funny though, when you're on an outsourcing site and you see the tasks the people that have business ideas/are running businesses that actually make money and they can't build it. But they pay you, delegate to you to build it. That's what I lack haha. The vision. I'm not the Steve Jobs. Nor a Wozniak, pretty mediocre dev.

[–]menial_optimist0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

apply for jobs that say degree anyways

[–]crespo_modesto0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ah man I applied for this one job it was so bad. Stated I am not qualified for this jobbut here is my resume/experience anyway. As per my female escapades... No response.

[–]no_condoments0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

it comes down to lack of experience eg. not good enough

Not good enough and lack of work experience are totally different things. You need work experience to get some jobs, and being better often doesn't help because they can't tell how good you are in an interview. Past work and github contributions help but only go so far. I'd recommend getting a job in either software, qa, or analytics. QA and analytics jobs often dont require coding experience and are good ways to practice coding and get tech companies on the resume. Basically just commit to software or being as close to it as possible. No restaurants.

[–]crespo_modesto1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Interesting point about getting into QA/Analytics.

I've almost been hired a few years ago but lack of car/nothing to show eg. prior work/portfolio.

The restaurant thing keeps me alive whether I want to admit it or not. But it is brain rot.

I've decided the transportation won't limit me so I'll do the 2 hr commute one way by the bus. But yeah financially too like I have a buffer but not a lot.

Edit:a side note this thing/service or whatever called Launch Code is so annoying seeing it in job listings. It's like "intro developer position" and you're like "HELL YEAH" but it turns out they're like a bootcamp asking for $10K and you may get a job.

How did you start up/become a “full stack” developer? You said you have no degree - did you just learn on your own or did you get certified somewhere?

[–]crespo_modesto0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

short answer

I learned on my own since 2013. I'm not certified, I don't know how you get certified as a full stack developer unless it's a title given to you by some company that employs you full time. I only apply to jobs that I'm pretty sure I can do and that goes from front to back end work within my tech stack/language scope.

long answer

whoops this pastebin completely broke those links oh well.

[–]jawndergone0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

nice man! thanks for that long response! what would you recommend be a starting point for someone with zero background or experience, just a novel interest in learning to code / understanding the basics of programming? The most experience I could say I have is from having learned very basic/surface concepts having previously done work as a technical recruiter

[–]crespo_modesto0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Man now I'm on the spot haha. These are just my opinions I'm not a teacher by trade.

Well you will definitely want to split it up first ie. front end then back end.

Front end you'll want to get familiar with HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Back end you'll want to get familiar with how back-end scripting works and how it communicates with database(s)/the web server.

I know people hate on W3Schools but they start from the beginning eg. HTML, CSS, JavaScript and cover server side.

I mentioned CodeAcademy only because other people say it, when I looked into it, looks like you have to sign up. But it appears they have open information. I think some other sites are sitepoint, pluralsight and Lynda.

I can give you some very basic stuff to work with though.

HTML

Practically every webpage has this basic skeleton:

<!DOCTYPE HTML> <html>     <head>         <meta charset="UTF-8">         <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">         <meta name="description" content="Free Web tutorials">         <title>Page title</title>         <link rel="stylesheet" href="/some-file.css">      </head>     <body>         <p>I am using the paragraph tag</p>     </body> </html> 

If you save that on your computer using a notepad as index.html then open it with a browser eg. Chrome, you would have a webpage. The forward slashes in website urls can be treated as folders or they're not real folders and the website is using mod_rewrite or some routing mechanism to determine what to do with the address.

Then in the <body></body> tags is where what you see and interact on a page goes. For example:

<body>     <div id="my-div">         <!-- this line is a comment -->         <input type="text" id="my-input">     </div> </body> 

Notice the <div id="my-div"> and the <input type="text" id="my-input"> lines have id's. This is one way you can identify parts of a website then with JavaScript you can bind events to it, so when a user clicks on something or fills something out, you can do something with that event.

You would want to learn about semantic html, I think this is particularly important for accessibility/seo.

CSS

The <link line above is what is responsible for styling the page. You can identify parts of a webpage either through the HTML elements eg. <div>, <h1>, <p>, <ul>, etc... or you can use the id's and class selectors that are applied to the html elements like <div id="my-id"> or <div class="red-box"> where classes are used more than once, id's ideally are just used for identifying eg. only once.

CSS is responsible for appearance and layout of a page. I think the most important things to learn is the box-model(involving padding/widths), using flexbox or grid, and responsive design with media-queries. One of the most useful things people mention/use is Bootstrap as it does a lot of that for you.

A basic CSS example regarding layout with flex and coloring. Id's are represented by the # symbol and classes are represented by .

You can also style parts of a page inline in the <body> section or through JavaScript where you can dynamically style elements.

JavaScript

If you wanted to grab the content inside an input box when clicking submit, this is an example. These are live examples so you can change the code.

You first want to grab the elements(you should learn a little bit about DOM), then bind events to them, events such as click, onkeyup, focus etc...

Then inside the event handler you can do things like alert the user's input or send the user's input somewhere like to a back-end script that can insert it into a database. You can also do math like a calculator with just front end.

Here's an example that is pretty basic, goes over the concept of identifying elements on a page, grabbing their values, a basic if comparison(checks if the content is empty) and alerts with JavaScript's alert method.

Note about JavaScript

It's important to make sure the DOM elements that you're binding events to eg. an input bar, a button, etc... exist before the script is called, or if you are adding events dynamically to rebind the events to them or using event delegation to handle future non-existing elements. But basically either put the <script></script> tag just above the </body> tag or you can put it in the <head></head> section but use a document.ready event to wait for the page to be done loading.

building HTML dynamically

Look up templating

You can build HTML with front and back end. For example if you load a list and want to add those elements to a page, say they are products, or images, etc...

You can run a for loop with JavaScript and build HTML incorporating the data into each element.

You can then add the new HTML element into an existing DOM elemement or just the page itself.

Then you can bind events to these new elements so they will listen to user interaction.

Anyway I just covered some basic front end. Back end depends on the tech you want to use. PHP/MySQL is pretty common but there are other methods/frameworks/tech to use like Node with MongoDb.

General logic handling

The other thing that would be important to learn is how to use some logic/controls. This is with regard to looping(repeating something), doing comparisons using if then, possibly switch case(a different way to write if then).

A looping example would be:

for (let i = 0; i < 5; i++) {     alert('hello'); } 

That would alert a popup box on a page saying "hello" 5 times, from 0 to 4. This is a way that you can iterate over arrays/objects(another thing to learn) and JSON(another thing to learn haha).

Here's an example of if else

let myNumber = 5;  if (myNumber < 10) {     alert('Number is less than 10'); } else {     alert('Number is greater than or equal to 10'); } 

Feel free to PM me for more info if you're interested. I can only guide you so much though and then it's up to you to decide what direction/stack you want to pick up. Still have to cover database schema, url handling ie. routing what happens when a user goes to some url.

Hopefully that's helpful.

Edit: just a random thought, if you're interested sometimes on Twitch there are some users that are just learning how to code and they do it live. You could watch that although it's arguable if it's productive. I was watching this particular streamer.

[–]jawndergone1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

awesome my man, I really appreciate it!!! let's see how much I can digest, learn, and apply - will certainly get back to you if I need any help but this definitely gets me steered in a good direction. Thanks again!

[–]crespo_modesto0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah no problem

edit: I forgot to say, every website you can view the code, though it's possible it's minified/hard to read. Use F12 or right-click view source. Inspect is also a useful tool to inspect a specific element on a page. Only the front end code.

Supreme drops/other hype shoe drops, super easy supreme drops every thursday when its in season at 11 am you just gotta know what people want, sells out in minutes so be quick, then put it up on your snap and research resale prices online you can easily make a couple hundred every sale if its a hype hoodie or tee, will sell in a day pretty much guranteed. I get around 200 views on each story thats where askin girls for snaps comes into play. i would say that 200 people added and around 100 concurrent story views is optimal.

Crypto lol and the the community and memes are funny compared to the stock market groups and memes. You can get into the sneaker game if you can get with the flow and know which ones will resell the most. If you buy a bot for around 200$ you can buy 10+ pairs without a problem and send them over to a consignment shop or stockx and just get the notification and get payed. No work needed except for filling out your info.

[–]crespo_modesto0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Kind of curious what are the guarantees on these bots? Like is it just code or do they also offer some supreme servers that have high computation/data throughput. I am starting to work on my own but I'm still learning how trading works haha, I can code but can't look at a historical price chart with moving averages/candles/bollinger bands and say "yeah now is a good time to buy/sell".

[–]ShoddyDot 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy

Crypto is basically me only side hustle right now if you can even call it that lol, i bought ~2k worth of bitcoin and alts and i could have cashed that in for around 14k during the pump. That was about a 2 month period. Due to inexperience I didn't cash in much at the peak... But at least I am not down overall. still up quite a bit especially if i measure my portfolio in terms of btc value.

[–]altlegend1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Dude I'm crying about taxes right now. I can't figure out the basic equation regarding sale price - cost basis. What do I do with the sales price transaction fee haha. Also the whole FIFO vs. LIFO thing damn... like I'm glad in a way that I did not hold onto a particular coin for a long time, FIFO sucks. I know people keep telling me use some website. It doesn't work 100% unfortunately especially when you do so many trades through shapeshift between alts.

I'm a student that does more than the recommended Full-Time. I delivery food with some of the popular delivery services. My niche is that I do it on my motorcycle in a big city so it's more efficient than driving a car. I average about 30$/hour without trying. I start feeling exhausted at 6-7 hours of continuous riding, but I only do 4 - 5 hours a night.

Honesty, it brings in a stupid amount of money. I make 3x my rent for stupid easy work that lets me explore a beautiful city.

The only issues that come with it is the stress from rainy/winter days and restaurants that don't confirm their orders by the time I get there. I could easily raise my income by adding extra hours but I love the feeling of not working entirely hard.

Also do the occasional consulting gig on the side, but that's rare nowadays.

sell on amazon, ebay, poshmark and most recently got involved in amazon mturk doing HIT's

[–]genesisofman0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Those mturk jobs pay dick though

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Not if you contribute time to it. Couple hours of HIT’s would make enough gas money

Haha dude I spent an entire week in the past and made $55. I think the best jobs were tagging adult videos ha. Some were just brutal though, so much work for $0.12

Like oh "install our app" take a picture of your receipt and have it transcribed! Is it OCR? No... it's some slave on Mturk.

Also the whole SEO attempts at force searching terms to move them up, wow.

I work as a door guy at a local bar. Three days a week brings 200 each week extra. You could also donate plasma.

[–]crespo_modesto0 points1 point  (6 children) | Copy

I've heard of that (donate plasma) but never really figured out if it was limited to special blood or something, like RN something I don't know.

[–]Livecrazyjoe0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

No they take anyones plasma. Youll mostly see college students and homeless looking folks doing it.

Interesting I'll have to find a place that does it. I also heard about the time regarding you feeling drained after they do it so you should plan out some time to recover. I don't know, maybe if your job is really active. I'm probably misinformed again.

It doesn't take too long and it's for a good cause. I can't say the pay is very good on this vs time it takes tho.

[–]crespo_modesto0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Hmm does it take several hours?

[–]Ricklogical 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy

It can. I would call into the one closest to you and ask them how you can get it done asap.

You could also google the process to save time. I think there is a way to get to the front of the line [appointment maybe?] because my pal did it for years to avoid actual work.

[–]crespo_modesto0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

actual work as in a day job? that would be impressive haha

[–]K04free0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Work at a beer tasting bar on weekends. Make about $20/hour after tax on Friday/Saturday nights. Good for talking to people and meeting women. Also pay is good for my lcol area.
