Do You Have A Side Hustle?
Having the lifestyle you want isn’t always easy, especially for young people. Without experience and tenure, they don’t yet have the earning power to make enough disposable income. On top of that, the cost of living continues to increase for everyone. This means that we all could use an additional source of cash. Whether you want to have a little extra spending money or need it to make ends meet, a side hustle is a great way to supplement your regular paycheck and live the life you want.
Recently, the emergence of the “gig economy” has provided millions of people with reliable, easy ways to put some extra money in their wallets. Ride-sharing companies such as Lyft and Uber allow them to drive for others on their terms. However, this isn’t your only option. There are many types of supplemental jobs that might boost your earnings. For example, you can turn your blog or social media feed into a platform for advertisers. You could contribute your talents in writing, photography or web design on a freelance basis.
No matter what form it takes, your side hustle can help you do something you love while still doing what you need to do. For some ideas on extra gigs that pay, see the accompanying infographic.
