About the Book
Until you wrestle control of your earning potential from an employing organisation, you can remain poor for life. The fantasy of being employed, sticking to job earnings alone and being secure for life is over. In this book, I debunk the notion that you must stick to revenue earned from your job alone. The side-hustle is considered as an activity done on the side-lines of your normal 8-5 job, which can generate revenue. It is becoming a source of supplementary income for the modern-day professional. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that many people are vulnerable to job losses, lay-offs and financial problems. Pensions are not enough to sustain retirees in many countries. It is very easy to blame the employer or other external factors. With a side-hustle, you can kiss goodbye to salary dependency through developing multiple streams of income. This book will transform your way of thinking from being a docile employee waiting for the next payday, to an active entrepreneur racking in income through a side-hustle. With a side-hustle, you can make every day a payday.
Reliance on one source of income such as a salary has seen many people remain in economic dire straits. Believing that the pension pay-off will jump-start personal finances has also left many distressed in their old age. In this book, the rising role of the “Side-Hustle” is fully explored as a viable means to strengthen the financial muscle of the modern-day worker. . This book is the ultimate guide to aspiring and existing entrepreneurs on how they can establish or maintain a side-hustle. Whether it emanates from a passion, hobby or otherwise – side-hustles are bridging the financial gap existing between expectations of a dream job and the reality dawning on the ground. With a lot of illustrations of business ideas that you can undertake alongside your job, this guide presents practical knowledge of the successes and failures of side-hustles.
