As I have written about before in these hump day features, it Is becoming more common for people to juggle multiple jobs with terms springing up, including the gig economy and side hustles. The article in this link:
discusses how the internet is facilitating this. It mentions how women are leading the way in using the internet for their bussines. This can suit Mum’s working from home. I hypothesise that perhaps social media allows women to use their social skills to promote their businesses and sell products far and wide. An example of this is the Lucy locket brand based in Sheffield, which uses social media to create an online community of ‘Locketeers’ and to see the products. I have shared some of the leggings that I have bought, here on the blog and on instagram Wonderwall360 . Lucy locket leggings originally started as a side hustle then has grown in to lucy’s main big business employing staff including family. At the bottom of the link above is more about Lucy and her Mum.
