Given the current high cost of living, it is challenging for some people to make ends meet due to their low-income jobs. This makes life very difficult and unpleasant for them. At the same time, there are those who can narrowly manage to keep their heads above water, living from one paycheck to the next one. For these people to afford even a little luxury in their lives, they have to work extra hours or also take additional jobs or engage in a side hustle.

This is handy if you have another job as one can make their plan around the other fixed work schedule. As long as one can put in a certain number of hours a day, it does not matter when you work or whether you took a break midway, or even how many breaks you took. Although, the more clients you get, the more the money that you will make.
