10 Reasons Why You Need A Side-Hustle NOW

Has there ever been a time in your life quite like this with the necessity (urgency) to be extremely wise, aware, self-sufficient, independent and prepared?  Uncertain times call for certain, positive measures.  It is not the time to sit back and watch.  Forget about standing still.  For your current situation and your future one...You need to hustle now. Take action.

A Side-Hustle = Financial Insurance (in uncertain times)

Here are the 10 reasons why you need a side-hustle NOW:

1.  There is NO job security.  

The economy is wobbly to say the least.  If you have a job you need to accept the fact that it is not secure.  Don't take that personally.  Accept it and make sure you have a back-up plan or two.

2. If you have WiFi and a device you can make extra money. (pocket change or a lot)

Who knows if we will ever go back into lock down (or yet another pandemic), but if you have a connection, you can earn an income. If you are out of the house working, you can earn extra money with your phone or laptop on breaks, during your commute, running errands and even while you're spending time with family and friends. The internet is bursting with possibilities to earn extra money! The world is at your fingertips.

3.  Wages are not growing.  Raises are seldom. Right?

A side-hustle allows you to increase your daily income. You decide how much and how often you get an increase.  A job description dictates what 'the job' is worth.  A side-hustle allows you to determine what 'YOU' are worth.

4. The cost of living keeps going UP UP UP.  But does your paycheck?

Everything.  E V E R Y T H I N G is getting more expensive.  You absolutely need more money.

5. You are worth significantly more per hour than your job pays.

You might earn $15/hour - $50 hour,  but a side-hustle can increase that rate to $30 - $100+.  

6.  You can keep your day job (or night shift) and still succeed with a side-hustle.

You might LOVE your job!  You do not have to quit.  But that extra money is quite nice.  You might hate your current job.  Your side-hustle gives you some cash security should you decide to leap and find another job - it will float you during the 'in between' - until you start your new, better job.

7. A side-hustle is like a real-world business degree. 

You will learn entrepreneurial & leadership skills, gain personal development, meet new people and experience sales & marketing first hand.

8. You can work your side-hustle to suit your own lifestyle.

Setting your own hours is one of the perks to having a side-hustle.  Tuck it into the minutes or hours you have available.  You choose how you spend your time.

9.  You need to cover all your bases.

If there is a shift in the economy or your personal situation, you need to be able to withstand the changes.  A side-hustle offers that buffer and peace of mind.

10.  A Side-Hustle = Financial Insurance

Probably the most important reason is this one.  You have to protect yourself.  Your life is 100% your responsibility and nobody is coming to save you. A side-hustle or two or three;  a part-time income opportunity is waiting for you!

I have MSI:   multiple streams of income.  My art career, creative consulting, a wellness business with Tranont  and my writing career.  In the future I will add more streams.  5 would be good!
