I quit my boring 9-5 and started my own cleaning side hustle – people make fun of me but I make loads and it's so easy | The Sun

WHILE many of us work away for eight hours a day in our 9-5 office slog, it seems as though more and more people are turning to side hustles to earn some extra cash.

One woman, Amanda J Martin, from Pennsylvania, was working in real estate but was fed up with the working hours and conditions.

While some months she was earning good money, other months were quiet and she was left concerned as to how she would bring the money in. 

So she decided to pursue her own side hustle – a cleaning business.

Not only can Amanda now choose her own hours, she is also making tonnes of money too. 

Amanda took to TikTok to open up about her side hustle as she posted a clip with the caption ‘And I loveeee to clean and organize’.

It has 105.6k likes, 886 comments and 1,520 shares.

A third commented: “I wanna do this so bad!!I love cleaning and organising so I wouldn’t even mind”.

Meanwhile, many social media users revealed that they too have cleaning businesses and have made lots of money through this.

One user noted: “I made more money cleaning 25 hours a week than I did as a manager working 60 hours a week”.

A second revealed: “The housekeeper who cleans our house drives a nicer car than us and honestly good for her, she’s amazing”.

A third chimed in: “Yesssss girls, people have no idea how much money you can actually make with cleaning!!!”

Another user explained: “I’ve been trying to start but don’t even know where to start 😭got small gigs but got no idea where to start” to which Amanda advised “Facebook is my best friend for advertising!”. 

Whilst someone else commented: “My aunt and uncle retired as millionaires with their cleaning business” to which Amanda replied “That’s amazing!! Definitely goals!”. 

In a follow-up video, Amanda responded to a comment that read: “Give me tips because I wanna do this”.

Amanda explained: “How I got started was kind of out of the blue – I did real estate full-time and real estate, as a lot of people know, is a rollercoaster career.

“Some months you make a lot of money and some months you make $0.

“You are running around, showing homes and you aren’t making any money – that is the reality of it.

“I was stressed and I knew that I didn’t want to go back to a 9-5 – I knew it wouldn’t work for real estate either – you can’t make your own schedule, you can’t leave when you need to leave or get there when you need to get there.
