12 side hustles for stay at Home mom in Dubai | Make Money from Home

There are so many people looking to switch their career path or simply looking for a side hustle that can help them make extra income from home. I’ve compiled 12 incredible high-paying work from home side hustles that just about anyone with a laptop can do.

Some of these side hustles I’m mentioning today I have done myself so I can guarantee that you can make a pretty good income from them. Now I do recommend you listen to all 12 before you consider one for yourself because they’re all very different from each other.

We’re going to go over how much you can expect to make from each option based on real-life examples and how you can actually get started today.

Drop shipping – Side hustle

This is completely different than the other that we’ve talked about and that is drop shipping and print on demand. The thing about this one is it’s a little bit more risky because it does require a little bit of investment on your end.

Now if you don’t know what drop shipping and print on demand is, it’s basically setting up a store where you sell physical products but you don’t have to store, package or ship any of the products because a third party takes care of all of that for you.

So what you would have to do is set up a store on Shopify, Amazon or Etsy for example and when a customer purchases a physical product from you, it triggers the third party to package that product and ship it to their address and you don’t have to do anything. I do recommend that you invest in some samples from that third party to make sure that you are satisfied with the quality and you’re keeping your customers happy.

Go to Printful.com, an example of a third party that you can design your print on demand product and when a customer purchases from you and they will take care of the rest. So what you could do here is go to products and let’s say for example I want to create a T-shirt shop. I can go to women’s clothing and go to T-shirts and I can scroll through to see which one I want to design my graphics on.

So I would suggest you to go for the best seller. You can see how many options there are. You can change the color of the T-shirt before you actually add any graphics. This is where you can add your designs, so I can go to Design and I can go to Choose File.

So if you’ve designed a file already and you converted it to a JPEG or PNG file, and you can upload it and you can see over here that you can also add a design on the back.

Virtual Book keeping – Side hustle

If you have a background in finance and accounting, we all need you. This is a very stressful job and I would never do this on my own. I would definitely get a virtual bookkeeper as many other entrepreneurs need it.

You can use online accounting software where your client will share all their financial information with you and you manage everything remotely from the comfort of your own home. It’s definitely something that every entrepreneur would love to hand off to a professional and you can charge up to $100.00 an hour with this service.

YouTuber – Side hustle

Number six is one of my favorites and it shouldn’t surprise you and that is a YouTuber. As a relatively small and new YouTuber, all have been able to make anywhere between $1,200.00 to $1,600.00 a month which is a great thing. So I also recommend you to star. YouTube channel to generate income from affiliate marketing, sell my own digital products.

Digital course creator – Side hustle

What you can do with your coaching program that you’ve put together, you can actually package that into a digital course that you sell over and over again and this becomes evergreen for you and therefore passive income.

The great thing about this business model is that you’re able to scale it much more than one on one coaching. I do recommend you start with one on one or then eventually package that into a course because you’ve already proven that your program works.

I have personally paid for multiple digital course. I have paid $1,000.00, $2,000.00, and above, and you’d be surprised on what people turn into a digital course and the topics they cover. There’s literally a course on everything out there so I promise what you are good at can be monetized. Now you can create your digital course on platforms like Kajabi, Thinkific or Teachable.

Virtual Assistant – Side hustle

The first side hustle idea I have for you is a virtual assistant. VAs are incredibly high on demand because businesses are starting every single day and they need people to help them out with tasks that they just don’t have time for. As a virtual assistant, you can expect to make at least $25.00 to $50.00 an hour depending on your skillsets and what you’re helping your clients with.

A great resource for you to check out and a place that you can actually post your services is Upwork. So all you have to do is go to the search bar and type in the occupation that you want to take on, so let’s say a virtual assistant. You can scroll down and take a look at what people are charging, what they’re offering, and it will give you an idea of how much you should charge.

The tasks you can expect to take on as a virtual assistant is administrative work like scheduling appointments, organizing to-do lists, organizing calendars, creating and posting content on social media, and basically any task that your client needs off their plate so that they can focus on what they need to focus on to grow.

A virtual assistant is the first role that I am going to be looking to fill in my business and guess where I’m going to look first?

I’m going to go to Instagram and go to Accounts and I’m going to search virtual assistant. Then I’m going to scroll through and take a look at these people’s accounts. I’m going to see the content they’re providing, maybe some testimonials that they’ve gotten from their clients and I’m going to reach out to the ones that I really like and ask for their rates.

So to get started, it’s as simple as creating an Instagram account, putting in a virtual assistant in your bio, and maybe reaching out to some small business owners that you can offer your services at a free or low rate in exchange for testimonials and experience for yourself.


Social media manager – Side hustle

Now I do recommend that you only focus on one social media platform so that you can specialize in that and therefore charge more. At an intermediate level you can expect to charge between $50.00 to $100.00 an hour and I have seen people at an advanced level charging $200.00 plus per hour.

Now it’s because they’re specialized in for example Instagram, Facebook, maybe YouTube channels, even Pinterest accounts, and as a manager, you would be creating and posting highly engaging content and reviewing the analytics to see what’s actually driving the most traffic and results.

You could also be managing partnerships with other brands and responding to audience’s comments. If I wanted to be a social media manager, the first place I would go to is Facebook and I would join Facebook groups that are specific to the social media platform that I want to gain expertise in and find clients.

How many people do you think are posting in there daily, whether they’re asking tips and tricks on Instagram or specifically looking for a strategist to help them grow their Instagram account for their business? This is a place where you can start and nurture relationships with people that you can eventually take on as clients.

Coaching and consulting – Side hustle

This is where a lot of people struggle with imposter syndrome, thinking that they really have nothing to offer. But I’m going to tell you right now that you don’t necessarily have to be an expert at something.

You just have to be a few steps ahead of your clients in order to help them get the results they’re looking for. Now the great thing is if you’re offering one on one coaching packages, you’re able to charge so much more.

I recommend you to be a personal trainer. They’re able to charge a lot more because it’s very personalized and they’re focusing on that one client and getting them the best results possible. So for example, you could be offering a one on one coaching package for $2,000.00 to $2,500.00 per client and therefore you only need two to three clients per month to hit a target of $5,000.00 per month.

Now to get started you want to be very clear on the target audience you’re trying to attract and what you’re helping them solve. Now of course you can start by offering your first few clients lower rates so that you can get your feet wet, gain some experience, and get your clients results.

Freelance Graphic Designer – Side hustle

Now I have a lot of experience with number seven and that is a freelance graphic designer that is specialized. The reason I say specialized is because the more you can focus on one type of service as a graphic designer, the more you can charge.

I was only focusing on weddings, I was able to charge more for my services. When the pandemic hit, I had to pivot my side hustle and I decided to serve small business owners by creating logos and business cards for them.

12 side hustles for stay at Home mom in Dubai

The great thing is I was only getting clients from my friends, family, referrals, and Instagram only, and I really didn’t have to post my services anywhere else. But a great place that you can also get started on is Fiverr.

So if I go on to Fiverr and I type in custom logo, I can get an idea of how much people are charging. Now I would be a little bit careful on comparing yourself too much because a lot of people are charging let’s say maybe $20.00 to $30.00 for a logo but these are very simple, minimalist logos and they’re only offering one or two revisions.

It’s okay to start with lower rates but if you are specializing in let’s say logos alone, you can charge up to $250.00 per logo with a few more revisions, and to increase the price per client, you can also upsell your clients and let them know that you’re offering packages where you can design their logo, business card, postcard, thank you card, or whatever you can offer to be able to charge more for your offer.

Freelance Video Editor – Side hustle

Now this may sound a little bit too technical if you’re not really comfortable video editing. But I learned how to edit all my videos on iMovie and there are so many other alternatives, it doesn’t have to be a Mac, that are very basic, and there are a lot of new creators on YouTube that need video editors like you.

If you’re not comfortable with editing videos but that is something you’re interested in, you can just watch YouTube videos and tutorials for free to get comfortable. Now you can see here that people are charging up to $100.00 per hour, depending on skills and your experience.

Transcription services – Side hustle

So you would have to listen to voice recordings and convert them into written documents. If you haven’t noticed a lot of YouTube videos have subtitles available to the viewer and they’re using websites like Rev.com or TranscribeMe to include subtitles in their videos.

I checked the rates on how much you can expect to get paid here and I found that TranscribeMe pays a little bit more and they offer $15.00 to $22.00 an hour for transcribers. So if this is something you’re interested in, all you have to do is go to TranscribeMe.com, go to Jobs, and click on Get Started to apply.

Copywriter – Side hustle

Now I personally don’t like writing. To be honest I’m really bad at writing. It takes forever for me to write emails and a lot of entrepreneurs would love to get help from really good copywriters. So you can expect to write like I mentioned blog posts, emails, and even ads like Facebook ads that are compelling in order to get viewers to click on the ads.

So if you enjoy writing, you can charge anywhere between $15.00 to $40.00 an hour as a copywriter and of course you can post your services on Upwork, on LinkedIn, and on Instagram as a few examples. In this case would also recommend that you do specialize in one thing so that you can charge more. This way you’ll be the go-to person for that specific area and people will expect to see very specific results that you are promising them.

Web developer or Website designer – Side hustle

This is a really good one because you can charge a lot for this and that is a web developer or website designer. My friend literally told me the other day that she was looking for rates for a very simple basic website and she was getting quoted $2,000.00, which is fair. I created my super basic website on Squarespace and I watched free tutorials on YouTube on how to do it.

This is something you can definitely learn from home on your laptop and if you’re charging $2,000.00 to $3,000.00 per client, you don’t need that many clients per month to hit your targets. Of course it would also help if you have some skills in keywords and SEO, so search engine optimization, in order to help your clients rank in Google.

Keep in mind that it’s really important that you build a brand awareness around any one of these options that you choose. Because you need to treat them like a real business that you want to nurture and build over time. These aren’t get rich quick schemes, they take time, patience and a lot of effort, but I promise you it pays off.

What is financial freedom?  This is a question that many people ask, but it is not always easy to answer. Financial freedom means different things to different people. For some, it might mean being able to quit their job and travel the world. For others, it might mean being able to provide for their family without having to worry about money.
