Why You Need a Side Hustle
Unable to find any work as a teacher or academic, Albert Einstein worked as a clerk at the Swiss Patent Office.
He found the lack of intellectual challenge perfect for his side hustle.
To Albert Einstein, the patent office was “that worldly cloister where I hatched my most beautiful ideas.”
A clear understanding of your hustle (the job that pays your bills and feeds your stomach) and side hustle (the work that feeds your soul) can make all the difference.
If you are intellectually underwhelmed at your current job, get a side hustle.
If you are emotionally unfulfilled in your job, get a side hustle.
Imagine, for a moment, if Einstein felt trapped and failed to see the actual value of his job at the Patent Office. If Einstein didn’t have a side hustle, thousands (and thousands) of college students around the US would probably not have a picture of him in their dorm rooms.
Side hustles can save you.
Most of all, side hustles can make you.
What’s your side hustle?
