How to Start Your Side Job: A Basic Guide
If you've been toying with the notion of pursuing your big passion, cherished hobby, or eccentric interest and you're now thinking that you really must see if you can make anything of it, the very first question you must ask yourself is:
1 - Hold On To Your Primary Gig
Don’t put unnecessary pressure on yourself to immediately bring in revenue that will result in profits equivalent to your current salary. You might think that leaving your job would free up enormous amounts of valuable time, and of course it will—but that free time alone won’t make the financial downside worth it.
2 - Carve Out Time Every Day
We all have the same amount of hours per day - it is what we do with that time that sets us apart from the dreamers
3 - Discover and Invest in Your Skills And Abilities
“So don’t just follow your passion—follow your skills!”
Look for the sweet spot where your passion meets your skills
