“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” -Tony Robbins
 
Being badly hit by the pandemic, we were all forced to stay at home and even build our own workspace. Our homebound situation gave most of us an opportunity to add a pastime to our repertoire. Some people took extra steps to engage in another type of business practice and ventured into side hustles. 
 
We all know that wages are not increasing, and the cost of living in the Philippines is also continuously spiking because of the effects of COVID-19 on our economy. Prices in key areas like healthcare and housing are also rising, so it wouldn’t hurt to look for another stream of income.
 
There are different reasons why people look for side hustles—personal growth and development, extra savings, or even entrepreneurial creativity. If you’re one of those people looking for something to do during their extra time at home, you’ve come to the right place. Check out the different side hustle ideas we’ve come up with to prime the pump!
