Do you have a side hustle?

If so, how much time do you invest?


I find many people have something they work on the side.

I have for 10+ years.

First, I used to tutor SAT classes. But as I got removed from test / materials over time, I didn't feel I could deliver a great experience.

So I built a wine collection Biz and now buy/sell rare wines.

Also fuels my alcohol habit, so that's a plus.

That explains the wine tasting !ย 
How does picking the wine tasting work though if we are in different countries ? Is it exclusive to people who live in the States ?ย

Before the pandemic I would purchase clothes from thrift stores, fix them up, and then resell them online. Not super lucrative, but it's fun. Getting back into it as things open up here now.ย

I run Airbnbs and have a vintage (1965) van I sell beer out of. I'm also a creative person so I do a lot of photography and design.

In this case, in the New York region for wholesale brands and start up brands Iโ€™ve solidified a name for myself after 4 successful launches, so one day someone approached me asking a rate for a launch strategy, he referred me to someone else and so on. I never actually intended for this to become a full on side hustle

Why not? Not enough time or lost interest?

I used to run a scrap metal salvage side hustle. My city used to do a big item garbage weekend once a year so i'd spend my nights driving around picking up fridges and bbqs then selling them for scrap. I'd usually make 3-4k off the week but my city did away with it 2 or 3 years ago.

currently trying to build an indoor garden in my basement so I can grow obscure peppers/vegetables and sell the excess product to local restaurants. None of my hustles make a ton they're more just to keep me entertained

Thatโ€™s really cool! I bet reduces stress too.

Still sell and train horses, teach people how to do the same. Just donโ€™t care about my rates as much as I used to, and will only do it if itโ€™s actually enjoyable.


sorry. Your donkey doesnโ€™t qualify, and definitely not if youโ€™re an entitled ass in any way.

I have a buddy of mine that works in IT.ย  He made an extra $40k last year in some random small town finding used stuff at Goodwill and flipping it on Ebay.ย  Probably put 10+hours a week into it.ย ย 

I have a few side projects but am blessed that they overlap significantly with my full-time job so I can honestly work on them simultaneously.ย  Personal goal is 7-10 streams of income so I can work because I want to not because I have to.
