A side hustle is a piece of work or a job that an individual can get paid for in addition to their main job.
From driving for a ride sharing company to tutoring online, copywriting, and more, a side hustle could be any commercially viable endeavour.
The practice became as popular as ever in the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic, which saw 11.7 million employee jobs furloughed.
Published in June 2022, an Aviva study found that 19% of adults in the country had started a side hustle since March 2020, with 16% claiming to have earned upwards of £1,000 a month from their new venture.
Almost two-thirds (61%) claimed their side hustle had been because of Covid-19, while 30% said it had been out of necessity to make ends meet.
