College is a great time to start a side hustle, says UC Berkeley graduate Kiana Kazemi. Kazemi co-founded her business Circularity during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. Side Hustle Nation found that 24% were between the ages of 18 and 24.

Kazemi's website is dedicated to helping people tackle "eco-anxiety" "There are many ways to make money," Kazemi said. But working on something that she saw a need for in the world provided "motivation in a lot of difficult moments"

Kazemi has a team of six part-time workers including engineers, researchers and designers. Financial advisor Winnie Sun says Kazemi is going about it the right way. Start a side hustle that you are passionate about and dedicated to being the best at, Sun says.

At seven years old, Sun sold avocados in her front yard. In high school she started a tutoring service that paid for her first year of college. Sun even founded a television audience consulting company while studying full time at UCLA. "Entrepreneurship is the new job security for [Generation Z]," Bera says.

Bera would work during summers to generate the greatest possible income. In 2013, she launched her own company, Gen Y Planning. Jaime Sullivan, a fourth-year political science student at Boston University, started to design and dye clothing for fun during the pandemic. It has become easier than ever in the 21st century to forgo location-dependent jobs and run your own business.
