Side-hustles can be a tricky thing these days.

And you’ve always gotta be wary of the snake oil salesman.

And especially the “get rich quick” marketing scams.

But side-hustles seem to walk that balance of not over-promising, while also appearing to be a better option than working for some jerk you hate.

One woman on TikTok named Courtney is here with an interesting-sounding side hustle.

And it only involves a pen. And letters.

She begins with a pretty enticing proposition,

“If you don’t want to sell, if you don’t want to recruit, build a team, MLM or digital marketing,”

[Turns out, that’s a lot of people]

She continues, “This is something completely different, so listen up.”

Umm ok!

Then she breaks it down.

“All you do is write letters.”

“And you literally get paid $5 for every letter that you write.”

She explains that it’s for large companies that need people to write hand-written letters.
