LEVELLING UP YOUR SIDE-HUSTLE
Have you ever noticed that no matter how fat your wallet is, you will always want more notes added in it. Side Hustle is about much more than just making some extra cash; it’s about freedom and job security in today’s unstable business environment.
Rather than finding a way to make a million dollars, find a way to serve a million customers. Start small. Prospect where you have a reasonable chance of success. Along the way you’ll learn. You’ll build your skills. You’ll build a customer base. Later, you can leverage that customer base and everything you’ve learned to successfully hunt bigger game.
Decide how many hours you think you can spend a day on your side hustle. Then add 25 to 50 per cent to that number. If you’re thinking two hours, make it three or four. See the schedule you create for your startup the same way you see your schedule for your current job as non-negotiable. Then work with that schedule.
Successful entrepreneurs eventually spend more time working on their business than in their business. Later, that might be true for you as well, but for now, a successful side hustle requires working in the business because that’s the only time you actually make money.
When you choose your side hustle, pick something you want to do. Pick something you want to achieve. Pick something you want to be, and actively work toward it.
Sure, other people might be chilling with Netflix. And that is one form of “me time.” But so is a side hustle.
Focus on being efficient too at your full-time job. Work as hard and efficiently as possible. Get more done than anyone else, if only so you can leave on time without regret, and without raising concerns about your performance and dedication.
