What is a side hustle?
A side hustle is a way to make money alongside your regular job. It involves doing something that is flexible enough that it doesn't interfere with your 9 to 5, and that you can scale up or down based on how much money you're looking to make and how much time you've got available.
Do you need extra education?
You don't usually need any extra education or training to take on a side hustle, but you could end up gaining new skills that are useful for your resume. Your side hustle could become a stepping stone to becoming your own boss, giving you the space to build up your self-employed income while you've still got the security of your day job.
You can pick up a few hours of work driving for a delivery service like Uber Eats; you can harness your skills in writing; website design or bookkeeping by taking on some freelance clients; you can start a dropshipping business to sell products from a third-party supplier -- there are so many possibilities. The common theme is you can work how and when you want.
Some side hustles like dropshipping don't require a lot of your time once you've set them up, so you can even have multiple streams of extra income simultaneously.
Is the side hustle hype, or a way to make some cash fast?
