Side Hustle

What does Side Hustle mean?

A job you do in addition to your main one

A side hustle is a job that you do in addition to your main job to make some extra money. This secondary job tends to require less of your time and effort compared to your primary job – hence, it’s something you can fit into your spare time or free days.

For instance, a teacher who does food delivery on weekday evenings is having food delivery as their side hustle. Similarly, a graphic designer who sells handmade jewelry on Amazon is using the Amazon shop as their side hustle.

Some people take up side hustles for a short period to boost their income for a while. Others, however, may start a side hustle with the hope of eventually making it their primary source of income, provided it proves to be lucrative enough.
