Benefits of Multiple Income Streams
1. Getting Out of Debt
Yes, I am very much sure of what i am writing. Multiple income streams could help you get out of debt. Obviously this would never happen overnight but it helps.
Start earning some extra bucks each month and you will end up with hundreds of dollars at the end of the year. This increases with increase in Income streams.
2. Put Efforts Accordingly
You have the control over putting the efforts over your side hustle. Work super hard for the month you need some extra money to survive.
Start with a Blog for example and write 4-5 articles each month. Build readership eventually and then after a year you have an extra source of income. Whenever you need extra income go and pitch people for some paid articles on your blog.
3. Be on The Safe Side
No matter how much we plan for the life some events are inevitable. Thus, It is good for you to put all your efforts to generate some passive income. This will help you to deal with tough situations and would keep you going.
4. Needs Less Daily Time
It might take some extra efforts at the beginning but once you will setup its good to go. Investing just one or two hours daily would be enough for maintaining the cash flow.
You might not believe but i am working on it from last 2 years. I usually take Content Writing and Social Media projects as my side hustle. On completing them i get paid with an extra income every time. This month I have earned close to 200 Dollars just by Generating income streams.
5. Helps in Decision Making
Knowing the fact that you have something as your support, you take better decisions. I left my job because of some health issues because I was confident enough of earning money through other income streams.
And now i am getting enough funds for surviving life here in India with the extra sources that i built. So you would have a chance to decide what is better for you when you have cash flowing in from multiple sources.
6. Living Life of Your Dreams
A 9 to 5 job will never help you in living life of your dreams. No matter how hard you grind the boss will always be the one in benefit. Having lots of income sources will help you in enjoying your life to the fullest.
You could just take a leave from your daily routine and spend the money generated on vacations. This will never affect your usual budget that you need for survival.
These points are enough to motivate someone to think this way. And if you are still not motivated then take your time and think of how your life could get changed.

2. Less Time Consuming: As we are finding things that we will be doing as a side hustle so it should be less time consuming. Choose something that you could do after your daily chores. Keep yourself away from choosing something that has low time to income ratio.
3. Low to No Investment: Go with something that needs very less to no investment at start. Because not everything you would start reaches to the very end successfully. Activities like Logo Creation, Article Writing, Proofreading could be beneficial for you.
4. Easy to Market: Finding clients is one of the major task if you are choosing your services to sell. It is easy to get clients for Content Writing then for Guitar Trainer. Obviously both have different fields and audience but choose something the service that you can market easily.
And if you are doing tasks like Blogging, Vlogging, Video Creation, etc then don’t worry about getting clients. You could earn hefty sum of money without ever needing a client through advertisements and paid articles.
5. Evergreen: By evergreen i never mean about something that is here forever. But yes choose or create a source that would generate income atleast for 5 more years. Because it would take one year to just stabilize the source. And by putting so much efforts you need good returns for multiple years.
