Today, the economy is changing. Everyday more people decide to grab their financial future by the reigns and dive into a side-hustle. In what has been called the “gig economy”, thousands of everyday, ordinary people, like you and me are augmenting their incomes with side hustles.
In 2018 78 million people in the United States admit to earning some form of financial gain through a side hustle. Every day, they are supplementing their regular paycheck with work that ranges from traditional gigs such as babysitting and selling crafts to ridesharing and renting out their house through an app. Maybe you’ve never done it before, but maybe you’ve thought about starting up a side hustle. Maybe teaching part time at a collage? Starting a dog walking service? Snow removal service in the winter months? There is NO limit to your potential. All you need for it to work is passion.
The side hustle is not a new phenomenon, thanks to the internet the room and opportunity for growth is limitless. People are earning extra money by working for themselves rather than from a part-time job or with other employers. It’s projected that within the next decade, the majority of US adults could be bringing in at least some of their income from self-employment, up from a third of those who do so today.
Whatever the reason for your side hustle, this new series “The Ultimate Side Hustle” based on the book “The Ultimate Side Hustle Book” by Elana Varon can help you get started.
