Work From Home: Online Side Hustles That Need No Talent


When I originally wrote this article the world was in a different place, it was before the entire world metaphorically caught on fire. It was pre-Covid-19. However, I think it is important to update this article because of the effect Covid-19 has had on all of our lives, I think a lot of people can benefit from learning ways to work online and work from home. 

Unfortunately, many people are temporarily out of jobs and some may have lost their jobs permanently. We are all stuck inside and many persons are without a source of income and this is as good a time as any to consider finding a job you can do online where you can work from home. 

This crisis forced the digital world on all of us and we are finding uses for it that we never thought about before and finding a way to maintain income during this period is very important. This post is about finding a side hustle when you have no talent or just finding a job that any of us can do. 

I decided to write this post when I made the realisation that I could not sustain a comfortable lifestyle on my income alone. Although I didn’t have any major expenses that kept me in debt, after paying the necessities I was left with less than $100 to last for the entire month. I recognise my privilege of even being able to cover my necessities because not everyone can. With the new restrictions and the drastic changes to the way of life, the opportunity to make an additional income is now a priority and the ability to do this online and from home is just as important.

Whenever I asked for suggestions on side hustles, the question was what are you good at? And the answer is always nothing…”Are you good at cooking or baking?” No…

“Can you sew?” No…

“What about doing hair?” I can’t…

“Crafting? Painting?” No…

Eventually, the conversation would end and they would give up and I’m left wondering why am I not good at anything?

So it got me thinking, what are some side hustles you can do when you’re not (traditionally) good at anything? Although you may be talented in these areas, the opportunity to really capitalise on these are no longer an option due to the Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions. 

That’s when I decided to check out Fiverr. Fiverr is a website that allows freelancers to sign up for free to offer their services to interested buyers. Don’t let the word ‘freelancer’ intimidated you, Fiverr is for everyone. You can offer skills from graphic designing to proofreading, data entry, virtual assistant or voice-overs.

Thee great thing about Fiverr is that they also provide the opportunity for persons to take short courses to enhance skill they want. Maybe you’ve always had an interest in web design or storyteller. There is a course for anything, you can see if there is something for you here.

These courses can also just be for your personal development. Maybe there is something you always wanted to study and you never had the time or resources, but now you can. The courses are less than $100 and they are all self-paced and available online. It can all be done in the comfort of your own. Let something positive come out of this horrible moment in time. 

We don’t know when this will end, everything is out of our control. If you are like me and this is what gives you anxiety, take back some control of your future. Join Fiverr and start booking those online jobs, regain a sense of stability and remove the worry of not having an income. Register for that course, take something fun and fulfilling.
