Josh Belk is a full-time college student, he works full-time in web design, and in what little spare time, he’s started a $6,000 a month mobile detailing business with his younger brother.
This idea came about when Josh connected the dots between obsession and opportunity.
On the obsession side, Josh would always see his brother out in the driveway cleaning his car.
A service business is one of the fastest side hustles to get off the ground, and you can scale it by hiring other people to deliver the work.

Is Mark Wills’ Loan Signing System legit? And will it work for you?
If there’s one side hustle that’s generated the most buzz among Side Hustle Nation in the last few years, it would have to be becoming a loan signing agent.
Loan signing agents are mobile Notaries that help facilitate mortgage closings, and can earn $75-200 per appointment. Mark calls this “the best-kept secret in real estate” and is obviously a huge cheerleader for his program.
But does it really work?
Rob brought in $40k last year hosting tours in of Washington, D.C. — all on the side from his day job, and with no marketing budget.
However, if you Google “Washington, D.C tour guide”, Rob Pitingolo’s TripHacksDC.com is nowhere to be seen.
So what’s secret sauce?
He’s been creating helpful tourist-friendly content on YouTube, and outlet largely ignored by his better-funded competitors.
He knew his $12 an hour gig at Walmart was a dead-end job.
His escape route was a business idea you probably walk past at least a couple times a year without even thinking about it.
What’s he do?
Today, Larry McGee’s the guy who takes care of the aquarium at the dentist office and other commercial waiting rooms.
And it earns him around $70,000 a year, doing something he enjoys and working just 15-hours a week.
