Need More Income? Consider These Top Side Hustles for 2018

If you are falling short of the income you need to reach your personal finance goals, then a side hustle could be exactly what you need. Fortunately, the gig economy is booming, and there are more chances than ever before to earn extra cash on the side by using your skills outside of the office. Here’s a look at some of the side hustles predicted to become big business in 2018 and that could be great ways to pad your checking or savings accounts.

Virtual Assistants

Virtual assistants help people with the tasks that demand more of their time than they should really be giving them. As a virtual assistant, you may help clients with scheduling, emails, phone calls, and the other activities than an in-person assistant might do in an office. Often, small businesses and entrepreneurs work with virtual assistants, so that they can spend more time running their companies instead of getting snowed under with these smaller tasks. Virtual assistants can do this work from home for multiple clients at once.

Public Relations

Traditional PR firms are prohibitively expensive for many businesses. This fact has created a demand for freelance PR services, which allow companies to engage help on a freelance, per-campaign basis rather than spending large amounts of money to keep firms on retainer.

Accountancy Consulting

Accounting is another essential part of doing business that can be extremely difficult for smaller businesses to afford. More and more, companies are bridging these gaps by working with experienced accountants on a consultancy basis, so they get the benefits of an accountant’s expertise without making it a full-time, salaried position.
