“Side hustles” are a scam

Filed under: Philosophy,Work — bblackmoor @ 13:03

“Side hustle” is another way of saying that you work for yourself making between $2-$3 an hour. The only people I have seen to make more than that from their “side hustle” are the TikTokers etc. selling advice on how to Make $$$$ Per Month With This Easy Side Hustle (#3 Will Shock You!).

It’s a scam. It’s like the MLM aka pyramid scheme companies (Pampered Chef, Arbonne, Thirty-one, etc.), but without the branding or the person “up-line” pretending that they’re your friend. Which I suppose is an improvement.

If you want to start a business, start a business. It won’t be easy, and it won’t be cheap. And it will probably fail, because most startup businesses do.
