What’s a Side Hustle?

Written for, by, and about the most progressive business leaders, Fast Company inspires readers to think beyond traditional boundaries, lead conversations, and create the future of business… to chronicle how changing companies create and compete, to highlight new business practices, and to showcase the teams and individuals who are inventing the future and reinventing business. – Fast Company

I’ve been receiving Fast Company’s daily newsletter, now, for more than two years. I came across it on Twitter, and even though workplace issues, and co-worker relations are no longer relevant for me, their articles cover just about everything else, too. I’m especially interested in items about the gig economy, being a successful digital nomad, and creating the career that suits me best.

Fast Company covers so much ground that they actually put together over 2 dozen newsletters on a daily/weekly basis. Subject areas include: big ideas, leadership, business news, productivity, creativity, philanthropy, virtual reality, etc. in the worlds of business, entertainment, fashion, technology, financial, and more. Please note this is not a paid endorsement; it’s my explanation for why I link to so many business/entrepreneurial articles – and why I’m doing it again, today.

Side Hustle: originally, something that brought in extra income outside of your regular job; trending, a self-initiated project, still outside of your main job, but intended to become your full-time business.

If your dream of purposeful work involves self-employment, then a side hustle may be the safest, and most cost effective method to get a business off the ground. In 5 Tips For Launching A Successful Side Hustle (For Real This Time), Ryan Robinson interviewed 5 successful entrepreneurs for their advice, and his article features one best tip from each of them. Business advice is readily available online via newsletters and blogs, through local organizations like Chambers of Commerce, and face-to-face at networking events.
