What are you calling your extra income?

Watercolor Treble Clefs, circa 1992

Hustles, 2nd Job, Plan B, extra income.

Do I dare ask how “the hustle” became to be the word we use? The definition isn’t exactly the best to describe a legit business a person is trying to do to earn extra income. Webster dictionary describes it as

a to sell something to or obtain something from (someone) by energetic and especially underhanded activity
to sell or promote energetically and aggressively

Here is a little story about the history of the word from Merriam

Although “hustle” sounds better than part time job and even better, you are now an ENTREPRENEUR!

In my defense

A lot of people I know have LEGIT hustles.  I realized the meaning of this word as I start a new hustle, yeah, yeah, another one but in my defense I was trying to find an appropriate “Swim Mom” t-shirt for myself and couldn’t find one.  My natural instinct is to just create it, thus, I made a whole line of Swim Parent/Family t-shirt and well side hustle created.  I’ll be adding a few more designs and quotes I like so stay tuned to the CafePress.

Why stop there?

CafePress is not the easiest to create a store in but that’s where I started.  If there is one, there are others so these designs are going to other CafePress style stores since people like various shopping options. Dub also wants a “team Dub” shirt and he wants us all to wear red so that he can see us in the stand during his swim meet. Cool, Mommy can make that happen!
