Why Part Time Guide is the Hottest New Side Hustle of 2021

March 13, 2021

Looking for a not-too-hard side hustle? Preferably something that will make you money but doesn't really require any startup costs? There's a reason why you're hearing about part time guides and seeing #casualtourguide pop on on your instagram feed. Here's the inside scoop on why tour guiding is quickly becoming the best side hustle of 2021!

  1. You already have most of what you need
  2. You're probably already a casual tour guide but just don't know it yet. If you happily show your friends around town when they visit, you're a casual tour guide. If you have a favorite spot you love to suggest to out-of-towners, you're a casual tour guide. Why not turn what you're already doing into a little side income?

    Do I have what I need checklist:

    • A hobby or attraction I can share
    • Basic knowledge of my area
    • Some free time
  3. You can make your own schedule
  4. Work when you want, as much as you want. You're your own boss. And if you use Tour Boogie, your running costs are super low so there's no minimum you ever need to make.

  5. You get to connect with travelers and with your community
  6. Give tours around the things and places you love and you'll be connecting with other people who share the same passions as you do. You might even make a lifelong friend on one of your tours!

  7. You get to spend time in the mountains, in breweries, on a bike, or wherever else you love to be
  8. Create a side hustle around the activities you want to do and you'll get to spend all day exactly where you want to be.

  9. It’s fun
  10. Do we even need to spell this out? Working for yourself and doing the things you love with people who share the same passions as you do is just straight up enjoyable.
