‘Side hustle’ is one of the key buzzwords this year. If you weren’t one of the many people jumping on the bandwagon this year, it’s still likely you came across the term. A side hustle can be an excellent way to boost your income and who knows where it could lead. However, you don’t have to start one because every other person hs a side hustle. It should be because you want to and have reasons to explore this area.
The good news is that it’s never too late to join the movement, so if you’re looking for ways to grow your money next year, here are some side hustles to think about in 2019.
Blogging is a great way to generate some extra income, and if you’ve got a talent for writing and something worth saying – you could soon find yourself earning a good living from your blog.

Trading can be a good way for you to grow any savings you have and help build a strong retirement fund.

Start looking around on freelance websites or put the feelers out with friends and family to see if there’s a demand for your services.

From picking up some proofreading to data entry or even help someone with their social media posts, there are a lot of things you can do to make some cash when you need it. Take a look at some of the best websites for finding gig jobs and help stretch your monthly income.
