What interesting side hustle have you done when you were young or did you have any good or bad experience when doing part-time jobs?
Having a side hustle or part-time job when young allowed me to gain valuable experience about money and businesses. It eventually led me to my first job after graduation as well which although was beyond my scope of studies but was related to the side hustle that I did.
During poly, Used to be a cook in KFC, every weekend fried chicken, end of the day then got free chicken. The fattest period of my life😆
During Uni, tuition: some of kid really dont bother, sometime really angry. But no choice. 😆
During working. Tried alot of stuff some failed. Then started photography freelance. Pathner with some organisation. Now stopped due to covid hope buisness will be back.😐
Then during my photography buisness. I thought why not do dessert bar package with photography. Then i learn to bake cake..😆. After 5 -6 event, breakeven, quitted. Too much work compared to photography.
Now doing part time grabfood, coz nothing better to do, quite decent pay. Everyday after work, straight go do grab till macdonald closes, 2am without fail. Can support my lifestyle with grab and invest all my full time job salary. Until covid over then can start my photography buisness again.
To me it really doesnt matter what you do as long got $$$ come in, passion in money make me learn alot😆. Is important to generate multiple source of income!
I was giving out flyers for $5 per X pieces, washing cars for $2 per car, been a kitchen helper/waiter at a family restaurant for $5/hour. There was once I was behind the fish section in the supermarket helping to prep fishes for customers. Giving out flyers was a bad experience, because you had to carry the huge chunk around and there were a few days it was door to door so it was difficult.
Other than that, it was fun most of the time.
I believe there are many more options now with gaming, youtube, tiktok, photog etc. where you can basically LEARN how to do a side-hustle. Back then, even if I wanted to, there wasn't enough material online.
