Thank you for visiting Thrifty Hustler!
About the Logo
The logo represents the long gray road that we all have to traverse to achieve Financial Independence. I chose gray because at the beginning of our respective journeys, it’s not as clear-cut or it’s not as black and white as other things in life. Achieving Financial Independence is a long and winding road and this reminds me to be patient and to work harder to achieve this goal.
About the Domain
I chose Thrifty Hustler because it represents two things – Saving Money (Thrifty) and Earning Money (Hustler). Nowadays, being frugal is not enough to attain financial independence, frugality partnered with hard work (and smart decisions) is the key.
Personally, I love to hustle. There’s something about hustling that excites me. The freedom it gives me and the contradictory nature of it (structured yet unstructured) fits my nature. Here are some of the things why I love to hustle:
I own my time: I can work only a few hours a day or I can work longer hours if I want to. I can opt not to work on days when I’d rather spend it with my family and friends such as during holidays and other special occasions. I can work on the hours that are best for me and I’m not forced to wake up at a specific time.
Almost Permissionless: I don’t have to ask for anyone’s permission if I want to change something. There’s no need to submit a proposal for my own salary increase and there’s no person who needs to decide on my appraisal and how much I will get in the following year. I basically decided on almost anything that I could think of.
Almost Limitless: Without wearing any rose-colored glasses, we all know that entrepreneurship has virtually no limits. The growth depends on your decision on where to take yourself and your business.
I’m not aversed in employment, but the restrictions set in place are just too limiting for me. But, I also understand that entrepreneurship is not for everyone. There are many paths to financial independence, and I’m sure that you will find your own path to take.
About the Blog
This blog is about saving money, earning or making money, and everything in between. I also love blogging and I’d like to develop my blog to become one of my side-hustles too. Having said that, I will also be sharing tips and my journey towards blogging.
I hope this blog inspires you to work hard towards your goals in life as well. And I hope that it also gives you some ideas on how to make more money through side hustles.
