What’s going on my friends? Today we have a great topic on the blog, and it is to renounce the side hustle mentality. Why would I, a personal finance junky tell you to forget the side hustle? Because 1- it is a bit overrated, and 2- because you really do not need it if you focus on the personal finance basics from an early age.
Let me explain a bit more before some of you go crazy in the comments below. The side hustle is only needed if you are in need of cash to cover you for a variety of financial stresses. Like paying off debt, saving for a down payment, or to finally build up an emergency fund. Obviously the side hustle is important if you are facing a scenario I just mentioned, but keep in mind it will take away from much needed free time.
Life is a balance and if you work 40 hours a week at the full time job and then clock in another 20 hours per week at the side hustle it will diminish all the fun things you can be doing to live life. Granted if you are a single person and have gobs of free time then by all means go at it and hustle your heart away. Keep reading below to fully understand the meaning of forget the side hustle.
