Okay, first, before we go anywhere, like, really going into it, what in the world is a side hustle?

What is a Side Hustle?

I mean, today this word is being thrown around left and right. Before we people were saying, “I have multiple jobs”, but today we hear, “oh, I’ve got the side hustle going on”. So what exactly is it? 

So realistically speaking, a side hustle is something that you do on the side of your full profession, right? It could either be 1 hour or 2 hours or whatever the amount of time that you have to devote to your side hustle. 

So technically it’s not really the full gig, right? 

And the main secret. And here’s the deal, guys, this is really the most important part of what the secret to side hustling really is. It’s doing the work. 

 Just because it’s one or 2 hours a day or 30 minutes per day does not mean that you just come in and say, “If this is my 30 minutes, I’m going to just be throwing some money into the market and see what it’s going to do”. And then bitch and moan when you lose your money because you didn’t do the work beforehand. I don’t care what side hustle you’re doing.

Day trading as a side hustle is totally possible and can be very profitable but it’s not easy and you need to put in the work!

You know, before you do those other side hustles that you got to train for it, right?

You cannot do something without actually having an understanding of it. Unfortunately, in the day trading world where many fake gurus like to say that there is a low barrier to entry or that it’s easy and can be done on auto-pilot, or whatever. Do you know what I mean? Like anybody who has a little bit of money could just start day trading or putting money into the market. No it doesn’t work like that. You’ve got to do the work.

If you really want the side hustle to work, you’ve got to do the work. Otherwise, it becomes a one-day gambling gig. So here’s the thing. Just because a side hustle usually takes you 30 minutes to 2 hours per day, it does not mean that you go in blindly. It  does not mean that you just do it – right?

As I said, that side hustle becomes a one-time gambling thing. And then what happens? It catapults to loss of confidence, not feeling good about yourself. Bitch and ammonia. That day trading is gambling, and it just gets worse and worse.

Right? And even worse is pretending that you don’t need to do the work when you do this day trading hustle. Yes, you do. You need to do the work, guys.

Can day trading be a side hustle?

Hell, yes! Yes! And yes, again. 

But first, you have to do the training. If you don’t do the training, it’s never going to happen. So that’s my simplifying day trading hack for you guys today. You can make this a side hustle.

Just do the work. First train, learn. Know what you’re doing in this way. I’m in and out of the market within 30 minutes. No joke.

Reason #1 : Day Trading Offers Flexibility

As you know I am in and out of my trade within 30 minutes each time I trade. And this is the type of flexibility in terms of time commitment that day trading offers. 

But again it took time to learn, practice, test and apply but once I had a handle on the fundamentals the time commitment can be quite flexible.

So you can totally do this outside of your regular working hours and still make consistent income.

Reason #2 : You Can Make Very High Returns

Of course there are many risks associated with day trading which is why you need to spend a lot of time putting in the work beforehand. But once you learn how to leverage your capital and take advantage of short term price movements you can earn relatively large amounts of capital in a short amount of time. 

That is once you have developed the discipline and consistency required to become a successful day trader.

Reason #3 : Work and Earn from Anywhere

Day trading through an online broker or platform allows anyone the flexibility to earn incomes remotely – from pretty much anywhere in the world.

In a remote cabin in the woods or on a tropical beach. Literally anywhere as long as you have a mobile device or laptop and internet connection.

This is probably the most appealing and attractive reason why day trading as a side hustle is becoming more popular in the world today.

But don’t get me wrong you still need to put in a lot of work upfront to study, learn and practice.

But that’s what I’m here for. To help you get started and succeed in day trading!
