Do you have a 'side hustle'?

From Uber to Etsy, millions of Americans are taking on extra work, to make some extra cash.  Lawregren is a working actor, who uses a new app. called, 'Task Rabbit,' to find odd jobs to supplement his income and Lawregren is part of a growing trend.

A new study, showing more than 44 million Americans have side jobs, in addition to working full time, range from retireees to millenials; the largest group of side hustlers.

Stefanie O'Connell, Financial Expert, says, "Millennials are contending with record numbers of student loan debt and underemployment, they are extremely likely to side hustle.

Experts are warning, though, to be careful with that cash.  O'Connell continues, "some of the cons of a side hustle are burnout and living beyond your means because you're overly dependent on your side hustle income."

 Instead, they recomment to save the money from thos side jobs to pay down debt and beef up that savings account so you're not living beyond your means.
