Confused? Well, don’t be! It’s pretty easy to explain. A side hustle is something individuals do, well…on the side! Essentially, it is a secondary source of income which is separate from your primary, usual, 9-5 day job. It is something you do on your off time when you are not at work, or when you have free time and resources to spare.

A side hustle can consist of practically everything under the sun, so long as you possess the talent and skills required for the specific niche you’d like to practice! It really can range from anything, be it things like writing articles and reports, designing web pages and drawing comic books, as well as even things you wouldn’t expect would earn you money – like selling baked goods!

What’s great about side hustles is not only the extra income they provide, but it also means that you get to be your own boss! You read that right.  You can manage your own shifts, schedules, workload, and do what you like whenever you like at your own pace. You no longer have to follow orders and slave away at a computer all day! You get to work the job you want when you want to. If you have artistic interests, then you can have a side hustle. If you’re great at IT and web design, then you can have a side hustle. See where I’m getting at here?


Tired of the monotony of your 9—5 job? Want a little more excitement, and want to lead your life the way you want to? You need a side hustle.

But, like with anything, there are some things you’ll need to get started. First is a skill or talent you can put to good use, as stated above. Something already come to mind? Then that’s great! Roll with that skill. The second thing you need is extra time and money in order to properly start up your new side hustle. This might seem hard, and a bit of a hassle, but trust me- it’s more than worth it in the long run. The third and very last thing you’re going to need is also the most important. Can you guess what it is?


Yep, confidence. Without it, you’re not going to get anywhere in your side hustle. You’re going to need to believe in yourself in order to ensure your new source of income is actually going to get somewhere. You need to step out of your comfort zone so you can escape from the tiring, boring life and daily grind of a 9-5 job. So before starting your very first side hustle, make sure you are mentally prepared. Take all of these into consideration and if you think you’re ready, what are you waiting for?
