Hustling is important, but it isn’t your whole life. Here, we cover jobs where you can set your own hours for the ultimate work-life balance.

Our generations get flack for everything – from our cell phone usage to killing the napkin industry. But if there’s one thing no one can argue with, it’s our firm belief in work-life balance. We all know making ends meet is important, but so is making time for the important things in life. Finding jobs that let you set your own hours is the perfect way to do it.


Let’s be honest: Remote learning has been rough. As a tutor, you can help your fellow struggling students get through a rough patch and still set your own hours and rates. If you’re a Millennial who graduated a while back, reach out to your local district for potential clients. If you’re still in school, ask your classmates if they need help or talk to local parents.


Rideshare driving has become the quintessential side-hustle for workers of all ages – and with good reason. Despite Uber going in and out of favor with the press, you can still make a decent amount of money as a rideshare driver. And if you’re not sure about letting total strangers in your car, there’s always the Uber Eats side of the rideshare spectrum.


Being able to speak more than one language isn’t just an incredible gift. It’s an asset that opens up a whole universe of job opportunities, and translating is one of them. There are a plethora of settings that benefit from translators, including:

  • Marketing companies
  • Social media groups
  • Non-profits
  • Schools
  • Editing companies

There are also plenty of online websites and communities where you can create a profile and watch work come to you.


We often don’t think about just how many written words we encounter in our day-to-day lives. Websites, advertisements and even the blog you’re currently reading are all the result of someone putting pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard, as it were). As a writer, you can choose to work for a company, which offers stability and benefits. Otherwise, you can be a freelancer and have a job where you can set your own schedule and put your talents to good use.
