“Side hustle” has become quite the buzzword, which makes sense since 45% of working Americans report having a side hustle.
A side hustle, in addition to your full-time job, is one of the quickest ways to better your financial situation. You can use that extra income to build an emergency fund, pay off debt such as student loans, or if you want to think bigger picture, start a new career and life.
However, working a side hustle you hate just for the sake of making more money isn’t going to get you anywhere but burnt out. You have to start by looking at what skills you can transfer into creating another income stream, and it has to be something you enjoy doing.
Don’t settle for something that sucks the life out of you, no matter the number of dollar signs it could bring. And more importantly, watch out for scams.
