Should I Start a Side Hustle?

If you find yourself creatively or financially restricted by your day job, then side hustling is for you. A side hustle is a flexible job that allows you to pursue different creative and business avenues while working a full-time job.

The time is now to stop stifling your passions. There are many side hustles that are relatively risk-free to try. If you can’t think of any, Self Lender has 51 ideas for side hustling.


  • More money — You could make an additional $8k a year of disposable income.
  • Differentiate yourself — Starting a side hustle will teach you valuable skills that you can use to position yourself above your peers at your day job.
  • Explore your passions — It’s up to you. Delve into anything that excites you, and feel free to abandon it and try something new whenever your heart desires.
  • Time — You’ll find yourself with less free time than before, but that time is being used to do something you enjoy. So, is it really a con?

As you can see, there’s not much holding you back from starting a side hustle. You have everything to gain and virtually nothing to lose.
