Side Hustles: From the Silly to the Successful

Blogging was once considered a side hustle or a hobby but it has since turned into a business, one that is becoming profitable as well.  These days most people find themselves with a side hustle or a side gig whether it’s for the additional income to make ends meet, or to save for something big or simply because it’s enjoyable.  

Any way you look at it side hustles can be lucrative as well as fun and on this Podcast, I talked about a few of them – the silly as well as the successful ones.



When launching any business, large or small, it is never all roses and rainbows trust me, it’s hard work and headaches.   Many of us, myself included have spent years working and helping others build and achieve their dreams while letting our own passions and ambitions fall to the wayside, which is just one reason why side hustles have become such a popular trend now more so among millennials.


Side gigs allow us to focus on our own goals without sacrificing income or giving up opportunities to learn and grow from working with or for others.  A side hustle is not a new concept, it is a relatively an old concept made popular in recent years by the younger generation who recognize that they have passions and dreams of their own that they may not be able to pursue full-time due to various reasons.  


They need jobs to support themselves, experience to grow, a way of earning enough money to put food on the table and/or pay off college student loans.


Side hustles allow us to still build our dreams without giving up our monetary support or full-time jobs. Often times people stumble into a side-hustle, realizing they can truly succeed at it without having to sacrifice other aspects of their lives.
