Dragons Den or Shark Tank-All About The Side Hustle

Last Update: January 20, 2019
Good evening to the wonderful community of Wealthy Affiliate. Not sure about all of you but two of my favorite shows on television are Canadas Dragons Den and Americas Shark Tank.

Lately, like in the last couple of months or so they have really talked about and stressed what is called the side Hustle.

Below is the definition of what a side hustle is.

Definition of a Side Hustle. A side hustle is any type of employment undertaken in addition to one's full-time job. ... Side hustles are often things a person is passionate about, rather day a typical day job worked in order to make ends meet. A side hustle is not the same as a part-time job."

Hmmm, doesn't the definition of a side hustle sound familiar?

If you watch these shows you will hear them talk about things like branding, social media, working hard, never giving up, starting from scratch and so much of the stuff that we deal with hear in Wealthy Affiliate in our affiliate marketing careers.

I don't watch a lot of television. However I do watch these two shows and love to watch professional hockey.

At the end of the day if you have never watched these shows I suggest you do and if you do already watch them I suggest you really pay attention.

If you really think about it Kyle and Carson really are dragons and they have put a program in place to ensure the world always has dragons and sharks

All in all I hope you all have a great evening. I wish you all luck in becoming the next sharks or dragons and I hope we all have successful side hustles.

Hey Dale,
My main hustle is WA. I don't think I have a side hustle since I don't work outside the home.

Tried and True

Personally, and I hate to be negative, but I don’t like the predatorial, (is that a word?), connotations of any of these words: shark, dragon or hustle. The problem with the world is that so many people are being hustled by dishonest and fly by night schemes that it makes people leary of every opportunity and the people offering it. I am not amused at all by these terms. Why are we so drawn to sensationalism?

Honestly i dont even know how to react to your reaction

Absolutely! Side hustle is my middle name in recent years.

I have not heard of the dragon show but I do like to watch Shark Tank.

I have many side hustles at the moment:

1) Full time job
2) Own and live in 4-plex, so we have 3 rental units here.
3) Manage 6-plex rental property with 6 more units
4) Operate my primary website
5) Operate my second website
6) Have WA premium referrals

I was also working on my Master's Degree for many years on the side as well and so far have 2 graduate certificates in the Ocean and Coastal Management area.
