How to start a side hustle in South Africa
A “side hustle” refers to something you do for money outside of your normal job.
A good side hustle brings in extra money, obviously, but it can also help you develop new skills that may open up new opportunities in your career.
Most new businesses fail.
A side hustle allows you to take a step closer to self-employment without eschewing the security of your “day job”.
