Jimenez’s venture involves selling printables and digital planners online, CNBC reports.

In 2021, the 34-year-old earned nearly $160,000 and in June that year, she decided to quit her job.

Jimenez founded the store after taking a business course that looked at selling printables online while on maternity leave.

Her second child was born in 2020 and she used her maternity leave to refine her business skills.

She told CNBC: “When you’re breastfeeding or something like that, you can watch a video.

“I would try to fill little pieces of time throughout my day just absorbing information.”

Jimenez admitted that trying to juggle her side hustle with her full-time job was “challenging”, but said she found time in her lunch breaks to work on it.

She said: “I would spend 30 minutes eating, hanging out with [my coworkers], and then another 30 minutes working on my Etsy store.”

Meanwhile, we revealed how mom Christian Sanya earns up to $2,000 a week washing laundry.

She told NBC Washington that she joined SudShare – a laundry service that has been compared to Uber.

The service is designed to take the burden off those who hate washing clothes, who don’t have access to a washing machine, or can’t find the time to go to a laundrette.

Sanya said she is one of the top earners and makes between $1,000 and $2,000 a week, but admitted she can sometimes make extra cash when delivering sweet treats.

She said: “All of my deliveries are with the Crumbl cookie and my customers love it.

“So it’s my thing. I am the Crumbl cookie girl.”

Sanya also revealed that her side hustle has given her “financial freedom” and the opportunity to spend more time with her daughter.

TikToker Amanda Smeltzer has been selling furniture to help pay off her student debt.

She sources furniture from garage sales and thrift shops before renovating it and selling it for a profit.

She bought a dresser for just $28 and sold it for $280 after transforming it.

And, self-made billionaire Alexandr Wang, who co-founded the tech company Scale in 2016, revealed he initially told his parents that he would go back to school after launching the business.

Wang launched the start-up when he was 19 during his freshman year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology alongside coding specialist Lucy Guo.

The entrepreneur told Forbes: “I told my parents it was just going to be a thing I did for the summer.

“Obviously, I never went back to school.”

The scale was valued at a whopping $7.3billion last April and Wang’s 15 percent stake in the company was worth around $1billion.

The company produces data for AI applications such as self-driving cars and robotics, and experts work alongside the US Air Force, Army, Samsung, and Toyota.
