December 15, 2022


In recent years, you’ve probably heard the term “gig economy” tossed around. Or perhaps you’ve heard about having a “side hustle.” Regardless of the term used, great opportunities exist these days to empower yourself and produce supplemental income, income in addition to that which you earn from a regular full time or part time job. What makes these opportunities even more attractive is that many of them can be done on your own time with excellent flexibility.

Another unique earning opportunity if you have access to a vehicle is working for a personal shopping or delivery service. The vehicle requirements may not be as strict as for a ride share company. Instacart, for example, is fast growing personal shopping service that many people take advantage of. Customers order groceries and goods online from select stores, and the personal shopper receives the order, fills it to the customer’s satisfaction, and delivers the goods. If you enjoy grocery shopping in your own time, perhaps you would like to get paid to grocery shop for someone else when you have free time. One thing to note for Personal Shopper jobs is that you may be delivering heavy items such as cases of water, which could be more physically taxing that one expects. While there is Instacart for groceries, there are also companies like Postmates where you could be shopping for a variety of goods, such as a trip to a bookstore to pick up a specific title.


It used to be that being a food delivery driver, you drove for one company. Perhaps you delivered pizza for the local mom and pop pizza parlor, or a large chain. With an increase in technology that reaches multiple restaurants and coordinates delivery drivers, you can become a delivery driver for a service like DoorDash. As a delivery driver for this this type of technological delivery service, you receive an order, pick it up at the restaurant, and then delivered to the customer. If you have nights and weekends free, this can be a great way to supplement your income.
