Hey there! I’m Nikki and I am so excited that you decided to visit my little corner of the blogosphere!
I’ll be honest with you, I started The Side Hustle Mama because I was looking for ways to make a full-time income from home…in my pajamas…on my couch!
You see, I am an accountant by trade and as you can imagine, my job can be very stressful at times. I was also getting tired of the early mornings and late nights at the office, missing my daughters’ school activities and the frustration I felt when I asked for time off for an important personal event and was told no was the absolute last straw!
Sooo…I decided to start a blog about what I had learned about side hustling through the years. I figured since I liked to write and am actually a pretty decent writer that starting a blog about something I am so knowledgeable about would be a piece of cake.
Blogging is HARD work!
However, my determination, the fact that someday (hopefully soon), I will be able to tell my 9-5 to kiss my grits, and the financial burden of putting a kid through college are enough to push through the pain!
While this blog was originally going to be about side hustles and making extra money, once I started writing, I discovered that I actually liked to write about more than just side hustles and money.
So it is now more of a lifestyle blog with a focus on side hustles and making extra money. You will also find everything from food and drink to DIY and crafts here as well!
I hope that you will find something, anything here that will help make your life a lot less stressful and a little more enjoyable!
