There are over thousands of remote tasks available and you can do as many as you want.

The influencer, sidehustlemike_, has revealed available opportunities to earn $1000 a week, and the job is entirely remote.

Mike recommended a website to research new remote opportunities.

How to start

The website is called Upwork.

It gives people the ability to work anywhere and helps businesses easily connect with more talent.

“First, you’re going to want to head over to and sign up.

“So you’re going to want to search for virtual assistant jobs,” Mike said.

There were a total of 14,915 jobs available when Mike did his research, but keep in mind that this can go up or down depending on the demand for virtual assistants.

You can choose an hourly rate or a fixed rate, and you can choose from other filters.

Currently, the highest paid virtual assistant pays between $450 and $570.

What is Upwork?

Upwork was created in 2013 to more easily connect talent and businesses around the world.

It is a market for freelancers in various fields like writing, graphic design, and web development to work for different clients.

Companies can also search for talent on the site.

Signing up for Upwork is free.

What is a virtual assistant?

The scramble suggested by Mike was to become a virtual assistant.

Virtual assistants are usually self-employed or freelancers; their responsibilities include providing remote professional administrative, technical or creative assistance to clients.

A job posting on Upwork requires a virtual assistant to be social media savvy, attentive to detail, and willing to interact directly with clients.

The job pays between $10 and $20.

Remember that any additional income from side hustle must be reported to the Internal Revenue Service or you could face a hefty tax bill come tax time.

No more side hustle

The Sun found more side hustle freelancers can consider.

For example, one writer, Alex Fasulo, has been freelancing since 2015 and helping others get started with similar scrambles.

She made $150,000 in six months after quitting her job in New York.

She also posted a video on TikTok explaining how she was making over $300 a day just by writing.

An Amazon side business can earn you up to $5,000 a month and it requires little work and no experience.

Plus, two nightly hustles earn up to $46 an hour — and you get to choose when to work.
