Side hustles and freelance gigs are growing as more people look for a new stream of daily motivation, purpose or extra income amid self-reflection and uncertainty.
Sneha Chakrabarty works at a global communications firm. A few months ago, she started creating resin art and promoting it on the Instagram handle @299_artstreet. “Earlier this year, I came across acrylic pouring and a couple of months ago, I discovered resin art. After weeks of self-learning and practising on a budget, I opened for commissions within my closed circle,” she says.
