Job security isn’t what it used to be. When our parents started their careers, it was common for someone to stay at one job for many years. I once had a boss who had been at the company more than 40! Between job security and pensions, there was no reason to jump ship from a good employer.
But it’s no longer the good old days. It’s the 2010s and Millennials can’t count on employers the same way Baby Boomers did. If you’re a Millennial, you’re responsible for your own destiny. As a part of controlling your financial future, side hustles are no longer optional. Every Millennial should have a side hustle.
