What does it mean to have a side hustle? It is any type of employment undertaken in addition to one’s full-time job. They are often things we are passionate about..fashion, animals, teaching, cooking, reselling..the list is endless. *More than 44 million Americans have a side hustle and of the 86% who say they earn extra money from a side hustle every month, 36% are making $500 or more. What would YOU do with an extra $500/mo?
Why the side hustle? Of course, the main objective is to make a little extra money. But what if you wanted that to be your main source of income? Is it possible? I say yes. I have worked in the retail industry for 25+ years in many different management roles and I’m here to tell you it kills you slowly. No one deserves that. For most in the retail industry, the money is good, a little too good in the fact that in looking outside the retail world for another job, you will be paid considerably less. So, too often, we become stuck (and sometimes comfortable), knowing that this is as good as it gets. And we put up with the politics, rude customers, horrible bosses, long days and physical demands because we think we have no choice.
So, we start to look inward..are we happy? What does happy look like in relation to our work-life? If you could do what makes you happy and get paid, would you do it? It’s a scary thought, to quit your job and do what you love. And where do you even start? It’s pretty overwhelming.
I am on my way to just that..independence. I have started with reselling clothing, jewelry, etc. on Poshmark, Mercari & Etsy. I have always had an avid interest in fashion and I am thrilled that in reselling, I’m also recycling and helping to keep clothing out of landfills.
