Motley Fool Staff The Motley Fool Published 8:00 AM EDT Sep 18, 2018 There’s a reason side hustles are becoming more popular these days. Not only do they allow you to expand your horizons and grow professionally, but they’re a great way to pocket some extra cash. By getting a second gig on top of your full-time job, you’ll have a prime opportunity to accumulate more spending money, pay down debt, or pad your savings account. That said, if you’re going to put in the effort and get a second job, you might as well snag a decent chunk of money out of the deal.

Lara Prendergast 11 August 2018 9:00 AM 11 August 2018 9:00 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Read on Not just a fad: the dangerous reality of 'clean eating' Isabel Hardman and Lara Prendergast My friend recently met a man on a dating app and went out for dinner with him. When he arrived, the man announced that he didn’t drink. Nothing unusual about that: plenty of young men are abstemious these days. His next declaration was more surprising: he didn’t eat. Instead, he lived off something called ‘Huel’. Huel — an abbreviation of ‘human fuel’ — is a type of powdered food made of oats, peas, flax and rice. I’ve tried it and it is disgusting — gruel, essentially, in smart packaging. But it’s hugely popular: Huel is now one of the fastest growing companies in Britain. Huel is low in fat and high on principle. ‘We live in difficult times,’ says its … [Read more...] about Why are modern men obsessed with self-improvement?

For many companies, it will be the dawn of a brave new world which brings safeguards surrounding the use of data both for them and their clients. For others, the advent of GDPR is proving to be nothing more than an expensive inconvenience that’s currently impacting negatively on the way they’ve always worked. Whatever the reality, the new regulations are vast, wide-reaching and will require a bespoke response from every business affected by them. Quite apart from the reputational damage of getting it wrong, larger companies could also face fines of up to £17.5m, with the scale of the fine ultimately determined by the Knutsford-based Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Consequently, the time to act – if you’re not already – is now. So, what exactly is GDPR? The new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will come into force on May 25.
