This gig involves writing as well but in a much shorter format. Generally, the reviews are only about 350 words in length and are opinion-based. So, you won’t spend as much time researching as you would for other freelance writing jobs.
While you may have to lightly interact with dog owners for this one, being a dog walker is really an introvert’s dream (especially if you’re a dog lover). You can market your services on your personal social media accounts to get started and it can be a fairly lucrative hustle. These days, most walkers are charging $20 for a half-hour walk and $40 for an hour. Of course, you may want to offer your most loyal customers a 10% to 20% discount.
You don’t necessarily have to market your services either. Now there are apps like Rover that allow you to sign up as a dog walker or sitter. With this app, you get dog walking assignments and people can choose you as their walker or sitter. You can upload an image of yourself and add information to your profile to let dog owners get to know a bit more about you. Then, when the time comes, Rover provides the owner with a box for their door to put their keys in. You arrive at your scheduled walk time, open the door, and meet your new furry friend for the next 30 minutes to an hour. If you want to earn even more, consider providing boarding and overnight care for pets as well.
Nowadays, introverts can really have it all. With more people working from home and the gig economy booming, there are a plethora of easy jobs to do. These are just three of the numerous easy summer gigs for introverts.
