Newspaper delivery is an excellent side hustle to undertake in the morning. This starts before the typical workday and people who have a means of transportation, and the ability to swing it, can deliver newspapers easily. There is some flexibility in shift timings as well and some shifts start as early as 1 or 2 am. Thus, people can even finish up work while it's dark and make some good money, which can be up to $11.24 per hour, according to Talent.com.

This is an unorthodox side hustle that people with some experience in retail can do easily. Stores tend to stock items in the morning hours before customers come in and they usually require people to do so. Thus, a stockist can work at a grocery store, retail store, electronics store, etc., and earn up to $37,000 to $59,000 per year, according to Glassdoor. Furthermore, stockists can get additional perks like exclusive discounts at the stores they work in.
