dedicated "after-work" and weekend hours, specifically for those who are working a second job, creating a new venture, building a side business or any other reason that might warrant the need for time outside of traditional business hours.
We've been spending a lot of time recently looking at the growth of side gigs. These are 2nd (or even 3rd) jobs or side businesses started by people to augment their regular employment or activity.
The primary purpose of most side gigs is, of course, to earn more money.
But side giggers are increasingly motivated by other factors including learning new skills, pursuing a passion, interest or hobby, testing a business idea or simply having something that gets them engaged in ways different from their primary activity.
The reason I say "employment or activity" is for many side giggers their primary activity is not income producing. Many are students, homemakers, retired, unpaid care givers, etc.
Grind's new offering is yet another signal that moonlighting is expanding and side gigs are becoming more common.
