Throughout the years, it has become more and more apparent that working a 9-5 job is no longer the norm, and traditional careers and culture becoming a thing of the past. Aspects like working from home part time and remote positions have become common over the past decades, but what has recently increased is the desire for a side hustle - A mindset that has become favored by seasoned workers and young professionals alike.

What is it?
While having a second (or third) job is nothing new, the definition of a side hustle is not that easy. A side hustle is defined as a way for you to pursue your true passion(s) - Something that allows you to explore an industry or career that you always dreamed of without having to quit your day job. This is not just about picking up a part-time job to make extra cash or necessarily starting your own business, a side hustle is identifying that sought after opportunity and making it your own on a part-time or short-term basis, while continuing with your Monday-Friday career.

The Pro’s
After diving into what this really means, let’s talk about the multiple advantages of finding and following your side hustle. While startups haven proven to be trendy, specifically by millennial professionals, the financial state, both nationally and globally, have a huge impact on this entrepreneurial spirit. Quitting your job to take a leap of faith into self-employment can be extremely rewarding but also very precarious, as you risk losing everything you have put into the business or idea. Before making this all-or-nothing step, recognize the area of business you have always wanted to chase, and seek out a gig that can help you get there on more lenient terms - Like the old saying goes, “You never know until you try”. From there, you can determine if this can transform your career into something new.

Things to Remember
Finding a way to fulfill a business goal is such a sign of success, personally and professionally. Entering into your side hustle is both nail-biting and exciting, but don’t forget about your full-time job. Often, people get so tied up in one that they forget about the other - Remember that this is not your main source of income, and you still have a team and superiors to impress at the office. Continue being a superstar at your full-time position, so that efficiency and work ethic can carry over to your side hustle.
