Many people around the world have learned one great lesson from the recent years of economic turmoil.  They know the danger of relying on one employer as your sole source of income.  More and more people, particularly millennials, are developing profitable side businesses.  These aren’t nixers.  These are legit businesses totally separate from one’s day job.  The trend is huge in the USA with everyone from teachers to technology professionals running a small business on the side and it is become ever popular this side of the Atlantic also.  It’s also popular with stay at home parents of small children because it can be a very flexible way to earn money.

Side hustle range from making crafts to sell at fairs to becoming an independent sales rep for a large company.  Essential oils and leggings are two extremely popular items sold by independent distributors in the USA as a side hustle.  Do you have a friend who makes amazing wedding cakes and sells one or two a month to friends and friends of friends?  That’s a good sideline.  That neighbour who works a full-time office job but spends his evenings in his shed making whimsical children’s furniture?  He’s got a great side business that he really enjoys.
