WITH the cost of living putting a huge strain on many households up and down the country, more and more people are looking for alternative ways to earn a living.
Well, many of us know the struggle of the 9-5 slog, but one woman is proving that there is a way to escape this and make thousands should you choose to take the plunge.
Social media user and stay-at-home mum, Holly Lynn, known on TikTok as ‘hey_hollylynn’, has taken to the video sharing platform to reveal how she makes £9,000 a month, all from the comfort of her own home.
Not only this, but Holly doesn’t actually have a full-time job either – with Holly’s stay-at-home side hustle, she is able to earn a fortune and only work one to two hours a day.
Yes, you heard that correctly…
So if you are fed up slaving away at the 9-5 and want to know an alternative way that you could earn a living, you’ve come to the right place.
Holly wants to share advice to other mums and those looking to create an income and escape the 9-5, using what she describes as ‘simple systems for success’.
She explained: “one of the ways I make an extra $5-10k [£4.6k-£9.2k] a month as a stay at home mum”.
Holly’s success comes from two platforms – Canva and Etsy.
The mum said that there are “so many ways to make money from home” and revealed that she earns her income in the following way: “design digital products on Canva, list them on Etsy and use social media and Pinterest to drive traffic”.
She revealed: “A few months ago I decided I was going to take advice from my friend and put my head down and learn how to create a passive income stream.
“I created a few products and found a product to promote in a trending niche.
“I work 1-2 hours a day from my phone.
“My business runs itself and I often make more in one day than I did in my 9-5.”
Holly explained that she finally started her side hustle after months of excuses, but was thrilled when she make over £10,000 in her first month.
Not only this, but in total, Holly has made a whopping half a million pounds in sales thanks to her side hustle.
She continued: “What happened when I stopped listening to haters…I created an Etsy shop and everyone said it would fail and that the market was saturated.
“I sold over 50,000 items, added a drop shipper and uploaded to Etsy, and made over $600k [£552,562].
“Don’t let anyone stop you.
“If you don’t have an online income stream, you are missing out.
“You can literally create a downloadable product in Canva, host it on a Stan Store and drive traffic to it with this platform [TikTok] and Pinterest.”
TikTok users were very impressed at Holly’s success and were eager to learn more and get started themselves.
One person said: “I’ve been thinking about doing this!”
Another added: “I want to learn”.
A third commented: “Help me pleaseee!!”
