    Melita Cyril, a spokesperson at Q for Quinn, advises new moms to be cautious when considering side hustles: “Side hustles have become increasingly popular among new moms seeking additional income and flexibility in their work schedules. However, it's crucial to acknowledge that these opportunities come with inherent risks. To avoid falling victim to scams, exercise caution when considering job offers that require upfront payments or participation in pyramid schemes. Additionally, email marketing is a common approach for lead generation in most side hustle jobs. TikTok and other social media platforms can serve as useful sources of inspiration and ideas for potential side hustles. With the right precautions and a discerning eye, new moms can leverage these platforms to achieve their financial goals.”
