The Internet has made it easier than ever to have a side business: a craft shop on Etsy, freelance design work, social media consultant, etc. But with all the horror stories about jobs lost because of a social media presence, some people are scared to start a side gig, afraid of angering their main employer. Kimberly Palmer
, author of the AMACOM book, The Economy of You
, says you don't have to be afraid. In fact, a lot of employers enthusiastically welcome side businesses as an opportunity for their employers to learn, grow and bring more skills back to the workplace.
