It's pathetic that in a so-called affluent society people have side hustles instead of "a" job.

It's clearly a great thing that having to work two jobs is no longer restricted to those working minimum wage jobs.

One of my team works at Home Depot evenings and weekends just for the discount and first dibs on the dumpster contents. I know another guy who does that at BestBuy.

Further clarification: it's infuriating and transparently manipulative that in the wealthiest country in the history of the world "needing a second job" has been whitewashed into "having a side hustle," to get everyone onboard with the notion that having one job isn't enough and only those with 2 or more jobs have got sufficient "hustle."

This concept is every bit as stupid as having a TikTok challenge for who can work the most unpaid overtime.

As long as you're going to work and doing your job, there's no reason they should care or even need to know about it.

I thought a side hustle was like an avocational pursuit so the person could "have it all" and start their artisanal goat milk syrup company while still gainfully employed as a software engineer.

But, what it started as and what is is now
are often different things.

Back in the 70's you could support a family on a single income.
Then 80-90's you needed two incomes..
2000's a full time job and a second job...
2010's2020's now you need 2 incomes + second jobs and a "side hustle" ..

There are not enough hours in the day.

My wife and I each work multiple side jobs. I originally started doing it as a way to supplement time between contracts, and she started by offering to create branding & graphics for a friend's business. Word of mouth got around for each of us over the last several years and it's proven to be a pretty lucrative business together. Luckily we're both in a position where we didn't need to take side work, but with the extra money it earns us it's hard to turn requests down, even if juggling multiple projects and clients gets pretty stressful at times.

The weird part is reading articles like this or talking about work schedules etc. with friends, where it simultaneously feels like we work too much and not enough, and it's impossible to tell whether we should really make a push to network and get our company name out there for more/bigger clients, or whether we should keep this balance of taking manageable jobs for a few clients at a time and keep our day jobs.

We'd love for our better-paying side gigs to be our main source of income, but we also don't want to work 16 hour days 7 days a week for the next 20 years.

The cliff edge for nearly any small business owner - do we keep a successful manageably small business as is and have a life, or go all in?  I'm no one's authority at all, but from what I've seen with various people trying it, your last sentence is the most important one.  Because that's pretty much exactly what's going to happen if you succeed in growing.  If you don't want that, then yeah best to keep it low key-ish

I hired a guy and trained him over 5 years in HVAC. I encouraged him to do side work even though I paid him 20 bucks an hour. (this was 10 years ago) I did side work all my life no mater who I worked for.

I chose to keep my business low-key because I wanted to also have a life and not work my behind off. I am retired now and it was a good decision. I now have a decent amount of money and not millions that I could have had. Fark millions.
