Side Hustle: A side hustle is any type of employment undertaken in addition to one’s full-time job. A side hustle is generally freelance or piecework in nature, providing a supplemental income.
You’ve likely heard the phrase a time or two. It’s ever growing in popularity and necessary in the world we live in, that is, if you are looking for a little more out of life.
Henry Ford once said, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” So the question is, do you want to live an average life or an extraordinary life? If the answer is extraordinary, you must do what extraordinary people do.
For whatever reason most people settle for average, for enough, for mediocre. Most are content with waking up doing the same thing at the same job that doesn’t pay them nearly enough and dictates how they use their time. Very few people are willing to hustle, but those that do reap the rewards and build the life they desire.
Side hustle, is it for you? Not convinced? Here are three reasons why you need a side hustle.
Multiple Streams of Income
Having multiple streams of income is empowering. It allows you to be more self-reliant. Having one stream of income is like putting all of your eggs in one basket. What would you do if your job was gone tomorrow? Just like that, your sole incream stream is gone. That’s downright terrifying!
Now, imagine the same scenario with multiple streams of income. Yes, one of your streams is now gone, but you still have at least one, or maybe several other streams of income you can rely on while you figure out your new plan and next income stream. It’s empowering, it’s safe, and it provides you with a sense of security.
What’s more, it allows you to expand your earning potential and puts the power in your court. You will no longer rely on an employer to give you a raise and pay you what you are worth. Side hustles allow you to dictate your earning potential. It’s not easy but it’s worth it.
Personal Development and Education
As an employee, you are likely assigned a certain range of tasks. Someone is likely telling you what to do, what your priorities are, and what your deadlines are. Sure, you have a say to an extent but you have to meet the standards and requirements that someone else has determined for you.
When it comes to a side hustle you determine what you do and when you do it. When you succeed it’s because of you and the same goes for when you fail, and sometimes you will. It is through the process of failure and success that we learn. It’s a real world, real experience degree. There is not a single school that can teach you the skills that you will acquire from a side hustle.
A side hustle is going to get you out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons. It will give you real-world knowledge of how to market and sell, evaluate a contract, network, negotiate and more. And, with all of this you become more marketable as an entrepreneur and employee.
Harness Your Passion
Your side hustle can and should be an opportunity to work in an arena that you are passionate about. Why? A side hustle should enhance your life, not be a chore. It should be something that you are excited to work on, not another job. It’s an opportunity to spend time on the things you enjoy each day while earning an income.
