The freedom of a virtual side hustle by use of technology provides people with the work-life balance to care for what matters most to them.

Today, countless people are having a hard time making ends meet. Now, people can use technology to make money from just about anywhere. The rapid growth of technology, the internet, and mobile devices has made it increasingly more accessible for people to control their own schedules (and lives) by using side hustles to generate a little bit of extra money. How is technology playing a role in facilitating this process? What type of role is technology going to play in the future? Emmy Nominated television reporter Charisse Yu is an inspiration to people everywhere by wielding her social media influence and starting educational programs for others.

Technology Provides People with More Freedom

One of the top reasons why people are forced to place their careers to the side involves children. The reality is that people cannot be constrained by the schedule of a full-time (or even a part-time) job if they have children they need to take care of. They need to have a plan that matches the schedule of their children while also having the flexibility to take care of their kids if they fall ill. This makes it hard to hold a traditional W-2 job. The freedom of a virtual side hustle provides people with the work-life balance to care for what matters most to them. Technology allows small business owners to set up an online business with the autonomy they require to focus on what matters most to them.

Technology Allows People To Pursue Their Dreams

Also, technology allows people to pursue their dreams through their side hustles. For example, some people are using technology to make their work-life balance easier to manage and pursue their dreams. For example, one of the top food/parenting influencers and entrepreneurs, Charisse Yu, has worked hard as a stay-at-home mom to establish an impressive social media following. While she has videos with over six million views, she has also started a vocational medical school, approved by the state, which allows her to find fulfillment in educating others. Now, it has become a significant business for her. She is able to give back to the community through education.

Side Hustle Are Not All About Money

Without a doubt, there are plenty of people who are pursuing a side hustle as a way to make some extra money to cover a few unexpected expenses; however, side hustles are not just about money. While it is nice to have a little bit of extra money, many people pursue a side hustle because it allows them to explore something they are passionate about. They can build something for themselves from the ground up, setting themselves up for success in the future. As long as people continue to pursue something they are passionate about, they will succeed through their side hustle.

Technology Will Make it Easier to Start Side Hustle in the Future

According to information that has been published by Zapier, close to a third of all Americans is currently running a side hustle. This number will only go up in the future because the power of technology is only increasing. It will be interesting to see what types of side hustles people pursue in the future. As technology continues to improve, more doors will open for those who are willing to go through them and explore their passions while chasing their dreams.
