According to a survey by Bankrate, 44 million Americans have a side hustle right now — some source of income besides their primary job. Millennials age 18 to 26 are especially likely to have a side hustle, with 28 percent of those surveyed saying they have a “5-to-9” on top of their “9-to-5,” and over half saying they work this side job every week.

But whether you’re a millennial or not, we want to know: Are you currently working a side hustle?

And, if so, what is it and why are you doing it?

Maybe it’s a passion project that you’re trying to turn into a full-time gig, or maybe it’s supplemental income that you’re saving up. Whatever the reason, Marketplace Weekend wants to hear from you!
