How many gigs or side hustles do you have?
This question is predicted to soon replace the currently used – “So what do you do for a living?” Surprised? You shouldn’t be! Take a look around you. See how many people are having regular jobs with side hustles, which help keep them secure in the knowledge that a “pink slip” is not going to have a cataclysmic effect on their existence and their dreams. So it comes as no surprise to learn that about one-third of 1,000 people surveyed admitted to having two (or more) jobs.
There are multiple ways of securing additional sources of income. Some examples of side hustles include:
People want an additional job for many reasons. Not only does it offer extra pocket money, but it also enables one to follow a passion or pursue a hobby while earning. Such creative hobbies help people focus more on their work in general, keeps them focused, active and energized – so no one loses.
All the above benefits are great to have in a changing job market which is still trying to figure out how many workers will be replaced partly or totally by robots, as workplaces turn more toward technology to automate menial tasks.
Start moonlighting, follow your passions and lay the path to a brighter future in the land of your dreams. For the most part, many side hustles require you to put in your time to make it work. Just be sure that you don’t become frazzled and burnt out with overwork. On the other hand, you can have a great side hustle just by renting out a room in your house and make good money doing so, especially in tourist hot spots. The times they’re a-changing…and the types of side hustles are too!
