You can have a white collar job or any other kind of job and still have a business by the side. Most side hustles are brought to reality or created out of the passion and love of an individual for a particular thing.

Most successful start-ups now started off as projects by their founders. It is best advised to go into a side hustle in what you have a passion for.

Having a side hustle gives financial freedom. Everyone wants an extra source of income, not having to depend on the salary from the 9-5 office job.  A side hustle would give definitely give you this but it should be noted that for some side businesses it might take a while before cash starts rolling in. This shouldn't discourage someone from the continuity of a side hustle.

A business by side helps in skill development, which is an advantage because it helps to get better at an office job and also improves the work as an entrepreneur. So it is a win-win situation for both worlds

No one wishes for the worst, but having a side hustle provides a fall back if any issue arises, probably a retrenchment in the office, be rest assured that a side business can still sustain for a while till you get something new or you can just focus on your side business and watch it grow into a full blown business.

A side hustle helps in time management.  It should never come in between office life and personal life. There must always be a balance and a boundary must be set to differentiate between the two, avoiding a clash of interest.

It is not advisable to start a side business in what you don't have interest in, only thinking about the financial benefits. You might get discouraged if the money doesn't come in quick. Never go in for the money but go in for the passion.
