I sell piglets. There are more people raising pigs, than there are breeding pigs. I have gotten into the habit of saying breeding pigs, so people do not assume that I sell pork products.

Honestly, I'd rather have a retired person as my Uber driver! They're probably safer, better drivers!

I recently started teaching English to Chinese kids via the computer. I still work full-time and do this about 10-15 hours a week. The kids are adorable. I figure it will provide some extra cash when I do retire.

I think that is the Millenials name for it. Surely, we can come up with something better to call it that makes it sound nice enough that everyone will like saying that is what they do.
Side hustle is an old term, not from millenials.

Young people on Reddit call it "beer money."

I see some "craft" suggestions in that list of side-hustles -

I do a bunch of crafts and I am pretty good at them. People see much of my work (beading, metal jewelry, crochet, knit, large metal yard art) and say - "hey, you should sell that!"

The problem is that I don't want to make 50 of one thing and the next problem comes with competing with imports. I can make a beautiful cuff bracelet which costs me $50 in materials and probably 6-12 hours of labor. Then I can go up on etsy or ebay and find someone from wherever selling the same thing for half my materials cost. I am probably using better materials all the way around, true, and they are probably much faster than I am, but it isn't worth competing.

We've gotten used to buying cheap stuff or mediocre quality and it is tough to compete on that basis. The turquoise bracelet you buy off the internet is probably made from dyed howlite chips, fragments, dust and epoxy instead of the Sleeping Beauty turquoise I buy from a trusted vendor in Nevada (which, admittedly, has also been stabilized but is made out of actual undyed turquoise), but they are both sky blue with a bit of matrix. Except my raw cost for 6mm beads is $100 and the other beads are about $6 US or less than a buck from a vendor stall in Beijing.
