Have you ever had the desire to turn your weekend hobby into an everyday career? Maybe it’s time you got yourself a side hustle.

So what is a side hustle? We’re glad you asked. It’s not a new part time job, and it definitely isn’t picking up a few hours where you already work. What makes a side hustle unique is that it works for you, and you work for it. You are both dependent on each other. No one can make your side hustle succeed other than YOU.

Each side hustle venture should be about personal growth, development and a chance for you to embrace your entrepreneurial creativity. Whether that be photography, freelance writing or starting an Etsy shop, your side hustle should be an ever-growing escape from your regular 9 to 5.

With a side hustle, you relinquish the risk of investing all of your time into one thing. You can remain committed to your main source of income, all the while spending more time doing what you love. Not to mention, you ultimately get to add more cash to your pocket.

But let’s be clear – your side hustle won’t be your sole source of income right off the bat, which is okay, because that’s the point. Claiming “side hustle status” gives you the opportunity to get a taste of being your own boss while providing the freedom to make your own decisions. And don’t forget, you’re able to grow your repertoire and develop skills all while truly enjoying the work you’re doing.
