Here’s a list of a few side gigs that you could be doing now for either active or passive income.
Dental hygienist or part-time dentist on Saturdays (I did that for a couple of years after graduation).

Be part of Clinical Trials
Be an expert witness
Complete medical Surveys
Review Health Insurance Claims
Perform dental exams or physicals for military members (I did this for 2 years during my debt repayment journey and used the extra cash from that side job solely towards repaying my loans. That’s mostly what I used to have a successful debt snowball strategy revisited (on steroids).
Part-time position at a nursing home (I did this for a few months. I wasn’t a fan at all as I found it to be depressing but 2-3 hours a week of doing that helped)
Per diem/locums tenens positions (I enjoyed doing that)
