‘I get to see my kid grow up’ Mum earns £2,600 a week for just five hours work | Personal Finance | Finance

Side hustles are popular ways to earn extra money but one young mum has ditched her corporate job in favour of her part time passion as a passive income mentor. Niki, known on TikTok as ‘slowlivingsimplifed’ has shared how she has done it and how others could make this kind of money to help ease the cost of living.

When it comes to making money, experts say that the number one tip is to choose a business or passion that will make money while you sleep.

Life and business coach Lucy Griffiths previously told Express.co.uk: “It sounds so simple when I say all you need to do is create the course, build your sales page and find a steady flow of eyeballs to read about your course and buy it.

“The reality is you will have moments of frustration; yes, at times, building a course-based business is complex, complicated and bloody hard work, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make this a reality.”

She has written a book called Make Money While You Sleep: How to Turn Your Knowledge into Online Courses That Make You Money 24hrs a Day.

Lucy said anyone can do it but it does take a lot of work in the beginning to get up and running.

She added: “You can turn what you know into an online course regardless of your age, background and education.

“Passive income is about generating revenue on repeat.

“It’s also known as recurring income, but whatever term you use, it’s something that requires a hefty dose of drive, determination and hard work to get up and running.”
