Festival of Frugality #272 - Find that Side Hustle Edition
We're proud to be hosting the Festival of Frugality's 272nd edition here on "How to Retire Rich" this week! We've named this week's carnival the "Find that Side Hustle Edition" in honor of one of my all time favorite frugality blog's most popular posts. I'm all about saving money but there's a limit to how much you can save (shhh...don't tell these crazy folks). I'm a firm believer in finding a side hustle that could someday grow into something huge! We practice what we preach--all of us here at "How to Retire Rich" have an online night job that supplements our day job income.
In case you need some inspiration, here's a video I love from the guys at Grasshopper. Stop planning and just do it!
Here's how to save that cheddar while you're coming up with your side hustle :):
