Are you ready to shake things up in your career and make some extra money in the process? A side hustle may be exactly what you need.
For the sake of this article, a side hustle is NOT a part-time job. I consider a side hustle any endeavor that allows you to use your time and energy to generate an income that is NOT attached a “regular” payroll.
Starting a small business, consulting or freelancing (like writing) using the skills you possess already are great examples of a side hustle. There also turnkey side hustles like affiliate marketing or multi-level marketing businesses. You can create a side hustle around your current lifestyle and needs.
You need a side hustle if:
You need more money.
If you are in a situation where you need money. If you want to pay off debt, save for vacation, start a college fund for your children, or splurge on an item without interrupting your regular finances, a side hustle can help you out.
A part time job may not give you flexibility and/or the unlimited earning potential of a side hustle. You can control the amount of money you make and the time you spend on your side hustle. The sky is the limit.
If your side hustle is directly related to skills you already possess, the learning curve will not almost non-existent. The investment can be less than $50.
