You don’t have to wait for your boss to give you a raise or promotion to make more money. All you have to do is use some of your spare time to start a side hustle to make extra cash each month. You may even be able to turn this side gig into a full-time small business that completely pays your bills and gives you true financial freedom.
With the widespread usage of the internet these days, it’s easier than ever for anyone to start their own business online like a website blog, YouTube video channel, or selling e-commerce goods on eBay. Best of all, it doesn’t require technical knowledge or even experience. You just need someone to tell you how to do it, and this side hustle blog can do that for you.
The one thing that this site can’t give you is determination. When you’re happy with your current financial situation, you won’t be motivated to work even harder to make more money. If you truly want a better life for yourself and your family, you have to embody your passion and use it to drive you forward. Only you can convince yourself to keep going when everything makes you want to quit. When you want something bad enough, you won’t stop until you achieve your goals. You need to get this feeling about your side hustle and making extra money to really succeed.
What is a Side Hustle?
In case you’re not familiar with the term side hustle, we’re basically talking about a small business. The distinction between a normal business and side hustles mainly involves size, employees and time invested.
Side hustles are often solo businesses, although it’s possible to do these with a business partner too. You usually don’t have employees involved, and you’re typically only devoting your spare time outside of your 9-to-5 job towards the hustle.
Your main “hustle” is your job that you work on for most of the week. Your extra hustle on the side that makes you a second income is your side hustle. Sometimes you will start this type of business just to make some extra spending money or to save for a dream vacation. However, many people are often surprised at how much money they’re able to make from these side gigs and will end up ditching their real job to become self-employed full-time.
Extra Monthly Cash or Full-Time Income
That’s what I did in 2009 – I quit the last job I ever worked. Every penny I’ve made since that time I’ve made for myself with my businesses and investments. I had part-time side hustles for the past 26 years, technically before I even worked a real job. The first dollar I ever made working was on the internet at 13 years old. By 16 I had bought myself a Mustang convertible with my online hustle earnings and was hooked.
Over the years, I have created three separate and completely different types of businesses from scratch that have made six-figures a year in profits each. There’s a ton of knowledge and experience that I’ve gained over the years that can really benefit you by saving you a ton of wasted time and money.
Whether you want to make an extra $100 a month just to have some expendable cash or you have aspirations of making $10,000 per month so you can tell your boss to shove it where the sun doesn’t shine, I can help you get started with your first side hustle and teach you how to grow it.
Having a steady job used to mean the world to most people. Then the COVID pandemic hit. Even the most stable and guaranteed jobs were put at risk. Some people got laid off and suffered enormously as a result. When you run your own small business online, you won’t ever depend on a company or a boss to determine whether your livelihood will end overnight. You get to take power over your own destiny. If you have zero desire to work for yourself full-time, an alternative source of income can still give you a lot of stress relief as a backup plan just in case your job disappears without warning.
Online Side Hustles
There are a lot of different kinds of small businesses you can create locally in the city where you live. However, using the internet as the primary source for sales for your side hustle offers much more potential.
Any product or service that you might want to sell can simply make more sales when you can get it front of more people. The internet lets you do that, and it also allows you to do so with a fraction of the effort as it would in person. With an online side hustle, you may be able to work a few hours a week and earn money from your work 24 hours a day, even while you sleep. This potential for passive income is just one of the things that makes running an online business so appealing.
Many different kinds of small business can be started online without spending a penny or with very small investment costs. This makes is a great choice for someone that is broke and can’t afford thousands of dollars to easily create a way to make a second income. I created my very first online business without spending a penny upfront. I also did the same when I built my first business that made six-figure annual profits, so you can truly build something lifechanging for yourself and your entire family with online side hustles.
