“Don’t let others define what you should be doing.”
In recent years, I’ve talked to many people who struggle with defining their side hustles and understanding when it’s time to turn them into full-time gigs. I’ve realized that it’s essential to identify what you don’t enjoy doing and then focus on developing a passion or hobby that has the potential to generate income. It’s all about setting clear goals, researching the market, and understanding what people are willing to pay for. But most importantly, never let others dictate your choices. Your side hustle might just lead you to your main gig and the success you’ve always dreamed of.
Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a business owner. Like many young, ambitious kids, I dabbled in various side hustles, from selling candy bars at school to becoming a soccer referee. As I entered adulthood, my side hustles transitioned into more serious ventures such as a chain of smoke shops and even owning a bar. Despite the challenges, these experiences shaped me into the entrepreneur I am today. That is why I want to make sure to share important steps when building a side hustle.
