Are You Making Time For Your Side-Hustle: Tips To Side-Hustle Success
“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.
The act of creating you own business as a side project to your regular 09:00 to 17:00 employment.
Side-hustles have become very popular of the years. It’s is a good step to working towards becoming your own boss and building your self-employed income whilst still having the safety and security of your day job.
Side-hustles also create career-changing opportunities you wouldn’t have normally stumbled upon at your full-time job.
STAY CRUSHING IT AT YOUR FULL-TIME JOB
When you start a side-hustle, your goal is to be great at two things: your full-time job and your side-hustle.
Before you start, you need to become focused on working a little harder and being more efficient at your full-time job to ensure no concerns are raised about your performance and dedication.
STAY AWAY FROM SIDE-HUSLTE DEBT
Business ventures require spending money before money can be made, that is why businesses take years to turn a profit. A large percentage of start-up businesses fail because they don’t turn a profit during the first few years of business.
The way to avoid this is by starting a side-hustle you can fund through savings or one that requires no funding. If you can’t find a way to start your side-hustle without falling into debt, find a different course of action.
SIDE-HUSTLE = ALL ABOUT YOU
Your side-hustle should be all about you, something that you want to do, something that you want to achieve, something that you want to be because then it becomes easier to actively work towards it.
Not only will you enjoy the sense of accomplishments that comes with progressing towards a goal you have set but you’ll be making money from it too.
A SIDE-HUSTLE IS NOT AN EXCUSE
Never use your side-hustle as an excuse to spend money unnecessarily.
DO WHAT GENERATES REVENUE
Successful side-hustlers focus on two things: selling and working.
Successful entrepreneurs eventually spend more time working ontheir business than in their business. But for now, a successful side-hustler requires work to be done in the business because it the only way to make money.
FOLLOW A SCHEDULE
Decide how many hours you can spare for your side-hustle, then add 25 to 50 percent onto that number. So, if you’re thinking two hours, make it three or four hours instead.
See the schedule you create for your start-up the same way you see your schedule for your current job. Then stick to that schedule.
DREAM BIG BUT FOCUS SMALL
Rather than finding a way to make millions of dollars, find a way to serve a million customers. Start small, prospect where you have a reasonable chance of success.
Along the way learn, build your skills, build a customer base. Then later, you can leverage that customer base along with the what you’ve learned to successfully gain bigger customers.
