AN unorthodox way to make up to $180,000 a year has been revealed, and it might be the easiest and most human side hustle ever.
TikToker Isafidelino told her nearly 30,000 followers about a side hustle that lets you “get paid for something you do daily.”
What is that something, you might ask?
It involves what you do in the toilet.
The TikToker said you can be paid for donating your poop.
All you need to do is go to HumanMicrobes.org.
From there, click on the donor page and you can sign up to get started as a stool donor.
There is no cost to apply to be a donor.
Each donation will earn you an extra $500, which means if you were going to the toilet every day, you could bring in a total of $180,000 a year.
While there are a few steps to getting yourself $500 richer every time you go to the bathroom, they are all moderately hassle-free.
First, you would fill out a screening questionnaire to see if you (and your poop) qualify for the paid study.
Then you would complete a verification of your stool type and physical fitness.
The next portion of the process involves a video interview.
After that, if approved, you will get paid $500 a donation.
How does it work?
According to the Human Microbes Organization, donors are prepaid for all the shipping and packaging costs.
The actual collection process involves storing your stool in a plastic bag and then shipping it to Human Microbes or a container on dry ice.
Donors will also be kept completely anonymous, so no one will know you’re getting paid for what you do in the toilet.
Human Microbes explains that its stool pursuit is part of an effort to solve a widespread crisis of chronic disease and poor health.
“Chronic disease and general poor health have been drastically increasing over the past decades to the point where the vast majority of the population is now extremely unhealthy,” the website reads. “It goes well beyond a single generation being a little overweight due to eating too much.”
According to the organization, recent microbiome research discoveries are giving hope for solving these problems.
Who may qualify to donate
Human Microbes explained they need the 0.1 percent of people who are still healthy enough to qualify as a high-quality stool donor to get there.
The organization said it’s screened 26,000 potential donors and still hasn’t found the supply of high-quality donors they’re looking for.
That’s why they increased their financial incentive to $500 per donation or $180,000 a year.
Donors must be in “exceptional physical and mental health,” the website said. Ideally top, young athletes.
They also would like donors under 30 years old, but there is no minimum age.
You also need to have minimal antibiotic usage to qualify.
Because of the selectiveness of these donations, it is likely you won’t qualify to get paid for your poop.
However, if you happen to be a match, this is an easy way to bring home the bacon, essentially a $180,000 yearly salary just for your body’s natural processes.
Stool donations are often used in fecal transplants to help others fight off diarrhea and colitis.
One stool donation can likely provide enough material for five transplants.
Remember that all side income must be reported to the Internal Revenue Service or you risk being audited and paying heavy fines.
Other ways to make a side income
If you don’t fit the ideal type of stool doctors are looking for, you still have many options for a successful side hustle.
Consider transitioning your passion or hobby into a skyrocketing business, like one Netflix star who has turned his love of baking into a six-figure venture.
There’s also a simple way to get paid $75 an hour to talk about movies and TV shows.
Apex Focus Group is looking for research participants to discuss a range of topics, from sports, pets, TV shows, movies, games, and cell phones.
If you participate, you can earn between $300 and $750 in several studies.
Also, an influencer revealed how you can make $10,000 a month through Amazon.
Plus, a man quit his full time job to make $5,000 a month from his bird watching side hustle.
