Side hustling is the art of making extra money on the side, outside of your full-time job or main bread and butter. A side hustle can help you pay off debt, strengthen your emergency fund, and more. Essentially, side hustling can offer you more financial flexibility and thus more opportunities. In addition, side hustling can help you learn new skills, meet more people, and provide some fun outside the sometimes boring 9-5.
One unfortunate side effect of not paying off debt – or not being able to pay off debt – is that your hard earned wages can be garnished. This means that a percentage (up to 25%) of your paycheck can be taken out to help repay that debt. While wage garnishment is a reality for some people, it is often a last resort for creditors – but one they feel they must take.
