4 Reasons You Need A Side Hustle

Why not get paid for doing what you already love to do?

1. Side hustles help you create a life you love

Why not get paid for the things you’re already going to do with your life anyway? If you enjoy doing something, spend a little time and energy getting good enough that others will pay you for it.

2. Side hustles can provide tremendous tax benefits!

One of the worst things about a W-2 is that you get all that income and have no way to write a lot of it off. By having a side business that legitimately makes you money and investing in it, you can write off more of your income.

3. Side hustles can help you transition into retirement

A lot of people look forward their whole lives to retirement, but then they don’t know what to do with their time once they get there! Retirement doesn’t have to be about sitting in a rocking chair on the front porch. Instead, use that time to get rid of all the things you don’t want to do in life and keep only the things you‘re most passionate about.

4. Side hustles can help offset the type of income you have

A lot of our clients at Big Life Financial have great W-2 jobs with a steady income, but they also have streams of passive income like real estate properties, books, or online courses.

What if you’re not sure what to do for your side hustle?

In my experience, many people don’t know themselves, what they truly enjoy, or their purpose in life well enough to even know what kind of side hustle they’d like to create. A lot of people get stuck before they even begin.
