I quit my job as a mechanic and can now make $25,000 a MONTH from my side business just by answering questions.

An ex-mechanic has revealed he made $25,000 in just one month from his side-hustle just by answering questions.

Randall Gibbons, 76, signed up as an expert on the JustAnswer site in 2009 and answered questions from motorists during his lunch break.

Gibbons, of California, turned her side hustle into a full-time job in 2021, CNBC reports.

He gets paid $20 per question and answers about 300 a week.

Gibbons made $25,000 in July 2021 and made over $115,000 in total last year.

And, he’s already earned $100,000 this year.

Gibbons was stunned by his earnings, saying, “If someone told me I was going to make that kind of money here, I’d say, ‘You’re crazy’.”

The retired mechanic revealed he spends around 50 hours a week answering questions online.

Gibbons has been passionate about machines for decades and started repairing motorcycles when he was just 14 years old.

He became a repairman after finding a job ad in the local newspaper in 1993 and worked at an RV shop for decades.

Gibbons first encountered JustAnswer when a customer brought in his Buick Riviera car that needed fixing.

One of Gibbons’ colleagues, who was unsure how to fix the vehicle, mentioned the website he had used for motorist advice in the past.

Gibbons told CNBC his colleague paid $35 for a question about their Chevy and got a response within 15 minutes.

Experts who use JustAnswer tend to earn between $2,000 and $7,000 per month, according to its website.

Gibbons revealed that answering questions is an attractive extra income for those who don’t want to commit to working a specific number of hours per week.

Experts can choose which questions they answer and how long they spend on the site.

Influencers have revealed how they are making extra money from their online side businesses.

A TikToker, known as Morgan, claimed she made $12,000 in just three months as an affiliate marketer.

Affiliate marketing can be an interesting career to pursue as the costs and risks are low.

You promote the companies’ products in exchange for a commission, according to AhRefs.

Experts said that all you have to do is create a website and the business is easy to grow.

Entrepreneur Andrea De La Flor claims she earns up to $5,000 a week from her career as an affiliate marketer.

Thrifty entrepreneur Gabby Beckford decided to quit her job as an engineer in 2020 at the age of 24 and started the travel blog Packs Light.

She launched the site just a week before the Covid-19 pandemic hit and offers advice for young people and women who want to travel alone.

Beckford’s articles and marketing opportunities helped her earn $170,000, but she was criticized for quitting her job as an engineer, CNBC has revealed.

But, she swore it was the “best decision” she ever made.

Beckford, now 26, said she didn’t let it get her down when someone questioned her decision to change jobs.
