INTROVERTS can breathe easy thanks to a secondary hustle aficionado who shared three gigs starting at $24 an hour with little effort.
Cooper, who goes by the username coopergknee on TikTok, recently posted a video explaining specific jobs you could take on that provide a steady stream of passive income.
They can pair well with a full-time job or even be a nice change from something that’s costing you too much time and energy.
1. Netflix Frenzy Watcher
The first “lazy” job opportunity Cooper points out is a “Netflix Binge Watcher” who pays around $24 an hour in compensation.
It actually happens, and people can get paid to watch Netflix, except the streaming service isn’t paying them to do so.
The job posting Cooper showed is likely for a separate company that has a specific reason for needing someone to watch Netflix in order to promote or test their product.
For example, a contact lens company earlier this year offered $70,000 for someone to watch 10 different Netflix shows to test and review its product, PennLive reports.
The Sun found several “Netflix Binge Watcher” advertisements online, with hourly rates of up to $33.
2. Ice Cream Taster
Coming in second on Cooper’s list of lucrative side businesses for little effort is an ice cream taster.
According to the advertisement she showed, the company offers an annual salary of just over $48,000 to sample ice cream.
Again, on the surface level, this sounds simple and sounds incredible, which has some truth to it.
However, this position probably requires some sort of college degree in food science or a related field, because ice cream tasters really evaluate the product.
According to Indeed, this is an in-demand profession, although it also requires some business skills.
The site explains, “It takes creativity to invent new concoctions that have the right texture and an urge to experiment with flavor combinations that appeal to customers.
“Ice cream tasters typically have skills such as patience, imagination, and a discerning palate to evaluate different flavors.”
3. Fortune Cookie Writer
Finally, Cooper explained that there is a demand for fortune cookie writers.
Someone has to find the registered messages that customers open inside the cookie.
The job posting that Cooper showed has a fortune cookie writer’s salary at around $60,000, which many would probably consider a solid living.
This is certainly a fun and meaningful writing opportunity for a creative thinker, but requires some skill and awareness to be truly effective.
You have a better chance of landing a job like this with professional writing experience or a detailed writing portfolio.
Also, the demand for this position is not very high, as many fortune cookie writers often start their own businesses, according to Indeed.
Other jostling opportunities
There are certainly other side hustle gigs that don’t take as long as your normal nine-to-five time and are still easily doable from your computer.
Not to mention that many can even be incredibly lucrative with the right steps.
The Sun has a story of a side hustle that could earn you up to $10,000 a day straight from your laptop.
Some side businesses can even be so profitable that they pay off thousands of debts.
The Sun recently covered a story about a former student who paid off her student loans in six months thanks to her stampede.
