Death of Loyalty III: Side Jobs

I have to admit, this comes mostly from Aaron Clarey.

Since, as discussed earlier in this series, your employer will show you no loyalty or mercy and will throw you out on your ass in a heartbeat, it is important that you are always working side jobs. You have to develop some skill above and beyond your current job. It may not even be in the same field. I’m currently working on novel writing, even though my educational training is in business and my work experience is mostly retail.

Your side job is a hedge against tail events in your industry, and it also should act as an avenue for your creativity and passion. It may take some time to find an remunerative side job that fits with your passions and is distinct from your day job, but working on it just a little bit everyday will get you surprisingly far in a short period of time.
