Recent happenings have shown that we all need a side hustle. It’s no longer an option as it were, it’s increasingly becoming mandatory to survive in the new world…
Just yesterday, the road to my workplace was hijacked by hoodlums. I couldn’t go to my house and had to return to the office for several ours. If I have a side hustle, I can easily let go of the job because commute is now a threat to life.
The covid-19 pandemic has also opened our eyes to the realities of the new world. Several countries locked down for several months, many people throne out of jobs.
Wars and rumours of wars. Our government can barely protect us. Life is more bearable for anyone that can work from home or is location independent. This is the reality that we face currently.
Bills have skyrocketed. The standard of living is now very high because of inflation. This is why Salary is hardly ever enough for anyone
A recent study from Statists revealed that inflation moved from 2.77 in 2009 to 2.99. In 2021 alone, it’s projected to rise to 3.29. How can anyone survive this with salary alone, without a plane B?
All these and many more reasons are why it’s no longer luxury to work from home. It’s now part of the demand to survive in the 21st Century.
