The art of the side hustle can be surprisingly complicated. In theory, all you need is some free time and burning need for extra cash. In practice, you have to know your strengths well enough to convince someone to pay you for them. If self-promotion is your worst nightmare, you might as well let the stars tell you what side hustle you should have. Your bank account, which contains more hopes and dreams than actual money, will thank you.
Side hustling isn't limited to young adults, but it's easy to see why it's so popular among them. In those first bumbling years after college, it can take a while to find a job that supports three meals a day and paying off a veritable mountain of student loans. Some people may find that job immediately but look for creative fulfillment elsewhere. Whatever the motivation, if you're looking for a side job, you're not alone. Recent research has shown that more than 44 million Americans, most of whom are between 18 and 26 years old, are earning cash in their off time.
Whether you spend it or save it, having extra money laying around definitely can't hurt. The only problem is figuring out which hustling avenue to explore. If you're at a loss, consider using the Zodiac as your guide — here's what side hustle you should have based on your astrological sign.
