The world has changed
“Get a good job, work there for 40 years, get a gold watch and good pension when you hit 65”
That’s not the world we live in anymore.
I know quite a few recent college graduates who don’t have a full time job. Some are working 3-4 part-time jobs.
Others have carved out a work/hobby niche. Lots of choices in these times.
There are a lot of opportunities to make an income, and you have the choice to pick a side hustle to enhance your income.
I’m going to list every side hustle, money saving tips and related opportunities in this blog.

And 50% of those who do, say eventual passive income they control is the number one reason for starting
Hang out with me and we’ll go into great detail of this different opportunities, the perils and pitfalls, and the ability to build and create your income in these uncertain times
Another important consideration for choosing your side hustle is YOU!
What are you good at?
What do you like?
What makes time pass very quickly?
What don’t you like to do?
Before you get committed to a side hustle, imagine what it will be like to actually do the work?
Does that excite you, or make you feel awful.
Don’t just start another job
Your side hustle should be an extension of you
Taking on a side hustle to make some money on the side is a great way to make more. Whether you need extra money to pay bills, saving up to buy that special something, or just want a side income, a side hustle can help you do just that.
Like anything, this journey is not easy. However, most digital nomads and people who’ve grown their side hustles into significant income report they wouldn’t have it any other way.
