It wasn’t until recently that I was living off of my salary. But about a year ago, I began to shift my focus to building up my side hustle. Now I live entirely off of the side hustle income, channeling all of my passive investment earnings and wages from my full time job back into my portfolio. This has fueled growth dramatically and has given me a sense of true independence.
In addition to the side hustle, I've built a portfolio that churns out enough income to cover my expenses. Having three income streams each large enough to cover all of my expenses gives me a sense of security and confidence. Building the passive income took about 15 years, and the side hustle income took about 5.
Just goes to show you that planning ahead and building these things takes time but make a big impact.
