As the self isolation period continues, Australians may be considering ways to boost or replace an income, or just find something to fill the time. 

More than one million Australians have a side hustle, but picking the right one for you can be difficult and depends on your talents, time and passions. 

According to the experts at PsychicWorld.com, you could also get some ideas for the perfect side hustle based on your star sign. 

But, Psychic World spokesperson Joyce Olsen added, it’s important to be realistic. 

“Enjoy it, but don’t rely on it – maybe you’re beginning to enjoy this more than your main job. But unless you’ve established sizeable earnings from it, it’s important to keep it on the side – these ventures can be unstable and don’t guarantee a living,” Olsen said. 

Additionally, keep an eye on the future: “Successful side projects don’t happen overnight. It will take time and hard work but will be worth it in the end.”

Which side hustle is best for me? 

Olsen noted that more and more Australians are taking up new projects, so it’s important to find the element that sets you apart. 

“Differentiate from competitors – the number of new projects, videos, freelancers and more are increasing daily. In order to make a side hustle worthwhile, find a hook that will draw in the big bucks.”
