”Millennials are lazy” – unkown
Newspapers and some older generations often call us millennials LAZY! I don’t believe that’s true! I feel like there are a handful of people who are generally lazy lazzzzy and don’t want to do anything! However, there is a lot of millennials who are doing great things, being entrepreneurs, being on top on their 9-5 jobs – and having side hustles.
I believe there is room for everyone to win, <not just watching people struggle> knowledge is power! So, where does one get started on up with a side hustle?
Here is 10+1 side hustles.. all you really need is motivation to get started, a laptop or phone and wifi :).
