100 Profitable Side Hustle Ideas for Full-time Workers in Nigeria

A side hustle is a kind of hustle you run on the side to earn extra income apart from your day job. It’s usually born out of a passion to make extra income or to express one’s innate talent and offer it in the marketplace as a product or service to people who need it. 

One of the misconceptions about having a side hustle is people actually think it’s like having another job. No, it’s not. I hear many excuses from people who have not been able to start a hustle on the side without quitting their day job—because they fear having another job. 

In fact, neither do most side hustle ideas require a huge investment in the beginning nor capital in the beginning. 

Every side hustle idea has the potential to earn you money in your spare time. Some of them can earn you passive income for life. 

One of the most common questions is how to come up with side hustle ideas—and in my opinion, I will say it’s one of the easiest things to do. Maybe it’s because I have been hustling for a while. I enjoy executing business ideas on the side to minimize the risk of failure and headaches that come with not seeing expected results early. 

Coming up with side issue ideas is quite easy if you can open your eyes to see what’s happening around you. They do say: Learning to spot potential opportunities is one of the most valuable skills you can acquire. Observation is really powerful and can be profoundly helpful if you know how to utilize it.

 There are some certain questions you can ask yourself to discover hustle ideas under your nose or in your backyard. What are the painful problems you had that you have found a solution to? Can the solution be productized? Can it be monetized? What services do you need regularly and do you think can be done better? What kind of improvement do you expect to see in some of the products you use every day? What are you passionate about? Do you enjoy talking? Do you love to speak to people in public? Do you have leadership skills? Do you enjoy writing? Do you have eyes for visuals? Are you good with data analytics? Are you a wordsmith? Do you have any technical skills that can be monetized? How do you eat? Do you blend your fruits at home? Have you ever read about how people started their multimillion-dollar tech company on the side without dropping their day job? Can you play any musical instrument? Do you enjoy illustrating with computers? Do you like to solve problems? Do you know any programming language? Can you use Microsoft Excel software? Can you write a song? What are the things people ask you to do for them on a regular basis that you don’t charge money for? Can you negotiate? Can you market a product? Do you enjoy reading? Can you rant on social media? The questions are endless. By providing answers to some of these questions or asking yourself more questions and providing answers to them—your world will be open to side hustle ideas.
