4 Reasons You Should Start A Side Hustle As A Working Class Nigerian by Dpredictor(m): 5:39pm On May 16, 2018
Are you still looking for reasons to start a side hustle? I hope this post would convince you to take action. In my last post, I listed the high paying side hustles that are best for working class people and unemployed graduates.

Why am I confident about me not going broke or crying over money? “My Side Hustle!!!”

I don’t have just one or two, there are so many of them and I am looking forward to acquiring more skills that would increase my knowledge base.

What message am I trying to pass?

When I see people message me and ask me “How do I earn money online?”, I become instantly angry. To earn money online, you need to offer a service or sell a product. So once you don’t have the skill or product, then you can’t start a side hustle. You remain dormant and become part of the spectators.

Are you still looking for reasons to learn a skill and start a side hustle? See below;

You make your Monthly Income within few days

Do you think your 100k salary is much? A level 2 seller makes that on Fiverr within few days. So when you see people tell you that they bought their car by selling on Fiverr, don’t doubt them, it is for real. When you decide to start a profitable side hustle, you get to see your monthly income from another perspective – being too small. I have written a guide on how to start a side hustle without any skill, So do well to get it now!

So when next you think that your 100k salary was sent from above, bear it in mind that people who decided to start a side hustle make that 2x as fast as possible.

You aren’t Scared of Losing your Main Job

So you hear that people are going to church and fasting not to lose their jobs – but you stay glued to your side hustle and keep counting your money.

They ask you why you aren’t bothered. You remind them that while they were sleeping, you were working all night to establish your brand.

If you are a working class and you have not decided to start a side hustle, then you are sitting on a time bomb. All you need to do is register for a weekend class, choose a profitable skill, (you can see the list) and start earning like others.

You’d never go broke

Being broke is a state of not having the required finances to foot certain bills. But who goes broke when you have several streams of incomes?

Being broke occurs when you have just one source of income with no side hustle. When you are broke, it isn’t because you didn’t save properly; it is only because you decided not to start a side hustle that would enrich your bank account.

There are several high paying skills you can use to start a side hustle. If you don’t have them, you can learn it for a little fee and start making money alongside your salary.

You become your own boss

Have you ever dreamt of becoming your own boss and possibly employing people? You would have that feeling when you start a side hustle and it is booming. You take control of how much you earn, times you work, and people you work for.

If you are diligent with your job, you can end up making it a full-time business, instead of a side hustle.

There is nothing more interesting than when you start a side hustle that makes you a good amount of money.

This guide would help those who want to make more money to achieve it with ease. You can check it out by visiting the link below;

Yea op, that's what's up!

I have three jobs but my problem is that I never take any of them seriously.
Coz I always think if I lose one, I still have two to fall back to

Starting a side hustle equals being on the part of financial freedom.

Who really depends on only salaries these days? You better ask those in Kogi state and other states how far! cry

It is already not enough for a family of dad, mum, and 2 primary school kids in certain parts of Lagos as well as in Abuja, PH and Kano.

If you will never go broke and you became your own boss, everyone would quit their regular jobs and focus on the side hustle. Regular jobs provide a regular stream of income, side hustle is unpredictable.

Only people with "fat" salaries can say this. You would see many people trying to keep their heads above water. End of the month, salaries get paid, they shell out a few thousands here and there. Next thing, you see them trying to come up for air again.

In my own opinion, people who work 9-5 are those of are scared of taking risks.

How many Nigerians earn more than 150k monthly, from white collar jobs?

Lastly, you have a point. If everyone delves into business, who would be the employee?

it is hardly enough even nowadays, if you want your family to feed really well, want your kids to attend fairly good schools, live in at least a 2bedroom flat and dress decently.

I bless God for all my side hustles.
