Now that the techies have gigafied the economy, pretty much anyone with a smartphone can find a side-hustle. With Lyft and Uber, you can enjoy the company of drunk partygoers and motor-mouthed tourists while you sit in traffic. Or, if you’re a foodie, you can stink up your car with the smell of fried grub while driving for DoorDash. If neither of those sound appealing (we don’t blame you), you might want to try TaskRabbit, which offers a wide variety of jobs that don’t require any special skills. From cleaning house to pet sitting, here are 10 easy ways to make money on TaskRabbit.
