One of the best things you can do for yourself while working is starting a side hustle because that business could have grown big before you resign from your job.

Having a side hustle also serves as an extra means of income allowing you to live a life of financial freedom.

I will be showing you some side hustle you can easily start along with your job in Nigeria.


E-commerce business is an easy business to start because you don’t need a website to start or run an e-commerce business. All you need to do is register with an e-commerce websites, upload your products and start selling.

Some of these websites allow you to register and upload your products for free while some will require you to pay a token to access their services.

Popular websites you can register with are  Jumia, Konga, jiji and some other platforms also.

Mini importation

This is a business model that works well but it involves a lot of hard work.

For this type of business, you need to import goods from other countries like china or USA, these should be products that people need.

When you’ve imported these products to Nigeria, you will need to sell them and that’s where the real work comes in. If you sell these products at the right price you will definitely make profit.

If you have good selling skills then you should give mini importation a shot because you will profit with it.

Online business

Online business is a big term but I won’t be going into much detail about it in this post.

Online business could be blogging, affiliate marketing, digital product marketing, online consultancy, e-learning, freelancing and other related services. There are many online businesses and you might just need to pick one to start with.

The truth is that people are making money online and you can also make money online but you need to master the art.


In Nigeria one of the easiest side hustle you can do is transportation especially if you have a car.  You can join platforms like Uber and taxify to get started with the transportation business.

You can do this over the weekend or when you’ve closed at work which could be a bit stressful.

Another option is that you could get someone to help you drive your car while you just supervise what the person does.


Coaching is another easy side hustle you can start and it can mostly be done during the weekend.

This is easy because all you need to do is teach people what you know. For example if you are a qualified account with ACCA, you can start coaching people who are preparing to write their ACCA exams.

So it’s pretty simple because it more about teaching your knowledge and skills.

You can also do your coaching online, which even makes your work easier.


Programming is also a good side hustle but it cannot be done by everyone. It is more suitable for those in the IT career field as they can always get personal job they can do from time to time.

The reason why this works is because there are many businesses who need programmers for different reasons. Some businesses want to develop an app while others might want to add new functionalities to their website.


Well, this where I’m going wrap up the post and I hope this post will inspire you to take action and start a side hustle while you are still on your job. Go get started now, don’t wait for the perfect time because there is no perfect. The best time is now.
