Businesses have always needed expert help – and if you are organized and task oriented, you can make a fantastic little business for yourself being the person who get’s things done. One “hole” I see that most virtual assistants aren’t filling is virtual assistant work for corporate execs. People who work in corporate positions are swamped and need help with research, organizing, communications, etc.
It’s one thing to get your car vacuumed out, but it’s a totally different thing to have your vehicle completely sanitized. As a mom of two little ones, I’m forever sanitizing my life. It would be wonderful to have someone come and sanitize my vehicle.
Content, content, content. That’s the name of the game these days. At the time of this writing, I have written 7 articles for my Forbes column in the last 2 days. I cringe when I think of the typos and mistakes. I know I will be up late working on this and perfecting it. A lot of bloggers and content creators need a second pair of eyes on their work before they hit publish. If you can be a quick resource with a fast turn around time – you’ll have a nice side hustle on your hands.

Email Marketing Consultant
Email marketing can be quite tricky if you don’t know what you’re doing. But if you know what you’re doing, then bingo!! You can be the go to person to help businesses get their email marketing up and running.

Due to the lack of travel right now, AirBNB has created “Experiences” where people can pay to join others online for certain experiences. Things like “Harry Potter Virtual London Tour” or “Sangria and Secrets with Drag Queens” or “Ghost Hunting in an Opera House.”
If you live in an interesting place, or you have an “experience” you can bring to the masses virtually – you can do pretty well on AirBNB Experiences.
Seasonal Landscaping: Mowing, Leaf Raking, Snow Shoveling
If you have the equipment, starting a small landscaping side hustle might be perfect for you. Secure five or six clients and your weekends could be filled with enough work to really pad your bank account. Even if you choose one of these to do seasonally, say you mow lawns from April to September, you can amortize the payments over 12 months for your clients. This gives you some peace of mind that you’ll still be getting paid through the off-season.
All content creators have more than enough they need written. A lot of business owners want to write books, but just don’t have the time. Ghost writers save the day. If you have a knack for writing and are fine not taking the credit for your words, it should be pretty easy to find bloggers and other content creators that need your help. Most content creators will give you the keywords, bullet points and tone of what they need written – you just need to use your talent!
