Today, we hear a lot of talk about the “side hustle.” And for many, a side hustle – adding another source of income in addition to your main source – is a great way to make ends meet, save money, and create opportunities for yourself. But are side hustles really worth it? Is it something you should consider?
There is no right answer to that question. The truth is that side hustles can be very worth it for some people, and they’re not so worth it for others. Let’s take a look at some advice regarding side hustles so you can decide whether it’s the right choice for you.
Don’t overwork yourself.
One of the biggest mistakes people make when adding a side hustle to their work lives is letting it take over. If you work a 9-to-5 and then have to work all night at your side hustle, you’ll quickly become burnt out. Then, you won’t be very effective at your full-time job or your side hustle, and it won’t benefit you at all. Make sure to keep work-life balance in mind when considering a side hustle; make the side hustle work for your lifestyle, not the other way around.
Make it scalable.
If at all possible, choose a side hustle that is scalable. That means it has the ability to grow or shrink as necessary depending on your wishes and needs. If your hours get cut at your main job, you can ramp up hours with your side hustle. Or, if you need to cut back on the side hustle and focus more on your full-time work, you can. Having this kind of flexibility built in is extremely helpful.
Choose something you like.
Don’t make your side hustle something you dread or don’t interest you. There’s no sense in making yourself miserable. Ideally, you want your side hustle to be something you enjoy and are interested in. Then, if you want to turn your side hustle into something more, you can – or you can keep it as the alternative source of income if you’re happy with it.
