Don’t Knock My Hustle

Downsizing and layoffs due to the recession have not only spawned a flux of new entrepreneurs, but has forced seasoned entrepreneurs to step up their “hustle”. By adding additional services to existing businesses and converting hobbies into businesses, there has been a significant increase in start-up businesses during the past few months.

Many small businesses are continuing to thrive during this recession, which goes to show that people are still spending money. If you are fearful that your job is not secure (well even if you do have job security), consider venturing into entrepreneurship. This may be a risk worth taking (read my previous post: Just Take The Darn Risk). I always say that entrepreneurship is a different kind of hustle, but there’s nothing more rewarding than knowing that you are truly self-sufficient and free to follow your passion.

If entrepreneurship is not your thing, that’s fine, but don’t knock someone else’s hustle.
