Side Hustles & Earning More

Should I Run Advertisements on My Blog?

At least 70% of people in the world work 8-hours day jobs. The majority of these people are still struggling with finances, barely able to break even each month.

That’s why some people develop a side hustle. It not only adds financial independence and flexibility to your life but also allows you to explore your ideas and test your limits.

A recent study by Zapier showed that 34% of Americans have a side hustle and around 61.1 million Americans plan to start one in 2021. The numbers are staggering, especially when people also have busy lives and families to tend to. The survey also reported that more than 62% of the people do it for the money rather than mere interest

Starting a side hustling can be different for everyone. To one person a side hustle may mean to rent out something they own while for others (usually the younger generation), a side hustle could mean blogging or freelancing online.

  • A positive company culture
  • High salary
  • Opportunities for growth 
  • Low stress 
  • Autonomy 

On the other hand, most employees aren’t passionate about their roles because they aren’t emotionally connected to their work. To grow both of these statistics, we must encourage others to forge a financially and emotionally fulfilling career and do so ourselves.

Financial Independence as a Journey Rather than a Destination
