The Side Hustle As A Path To Personal Fulfillment And Freedom | Brent Roy

If you’ve contemplated a career change recently, a side hustle could be the bridge to get you there.

A side hustle, or part-time job you perform on your personal time, can bring in some needed extra cash while adding purpose and meaning to your life.

A family embraces the side hustle

I’m surrounded by a family of entrepreneurs and side-hustlers. My daughter does photography and my middle son has already started three businesses, including his current videography gig.

Our eldest son is starting a side-hustle to edit and proof research papers from Ph.D. students. My dad started his own barbershop more than a half-century ago – he still offers the occasional cut.

My brother has a successful car detailing business. And my sister is a teacher who has authored and co-authored a number of books as her side hustle.

Over the years, I did voiceovers for a little extra cash. But I mostly played it safe, leaning on the security of government communications jobs. My career choice allowed my wife to stay home to raise our three kids.

However, in today’s economy, a single-income family may seem further out of reach.

With inflation rising and the chaos and uncertainty of ever-changing work models, more people are reimagining a better way to take greater control over their work.
