As the price of everything but our paychecks go up there is always the struggle. Do you find a way to cut costs even more? Or do you try to find a way to make more money? You can try to go in and talk to the boss about making more money. We all know how that goes.

Unless you have a really cool and understanding workplace you are going to end up on the short end of that stick. You are lucky to have this great job. That is how they make you feel. They don't care how much more work has been dumped on you. These are tough times and they are feeling the pain too. Or at least that is what we hear.

So that was not a success. So you either have to go look for a new job. Or you may decide to go the route of figuring out how to make more money another way. A side hustle. There are so many out there.

How Does Texas Feel About Side Hustles?

Are we open to working a side hustle? Do we want to find a way to survive? I mean a lot of people are living paycheck to paycheck. Sometimes those paychecks just are not big enough for us to survive on. It is the sad truth. Side hustles can be the answer.

That is something a lot of us decide to look up side hustles we can do. We don't want to struggle. If it means working a bit more can it be worth it? That is the question I even asked myself.

After many searches. Weighing the pros and cons. The answer for me was a side hustle. So that is exactly what I am doing. It seems there are a lot of Texans in the same boat.

They both had 302 searches on average for small businesses or side hustles per 100,000 people. Pennsylvania has just under 1.1 million small to medium businesses registered in the state to date, whilst Texas has 3.1 million.

The side hustle is here to stay. Pick one and feel better about making things work in 2024. You won't be the only Texan doing it.
