Before I started side hustlin’ with my online biz, I tried to convince myself that I just needed to be happy with my job.
I mean … here I was, in a good job and surrounded by great people … but I still couldn’t drop the feeling that I wanted something MORE out of life.
I told myself that everyone else on the planet just “accepts” their life and job, so why can’t I?
The truth is, no matter how many times I tried to look on the bright side and the “glass is half full”, I couldn’t shake my desire to follow my heart and create my own destiny.
THIS is where my side hustle started. Because I wasn’t ready to leave my 9-5 (yet), but I also knew that I felt incomplete as just an employee.
So for 15 months I did both – employee AND entrepreneur. And it was the best decision I ever made.
EVERYONE should have a #SideHustle.
1. They are the perfect creative outlet
Every human is creative (even if you don’t think you are!). Even the way you set the table each night is a representation of your creative nature (I have a weird habit of always folding napkins into triangles before tucking them under the butter knife … you?😂)
Having a side hustle allows you a creative outlet to pursue what sets your soul on fire. Your side hustle is your passion project that gives you the space to channel those things that you love.
2. They force you into growth mode
“The essence of life is growth” – Jim Rohn💯
Here’s the thing … when you’re stuck or stagnant, this is when you start to feel down or depressed about life (believe me … I’m speaking from experience here). But when you’re GROWING, that’s when you truly feel alive and excited about the future.
When you pursue a side hustle, you’re forced into growth mode. You naturally grow personally and professionally with every step forward.
3. To drive multiple streams of income
Whether you simply want to make an extra $200 a month for a car payment OR your ultimate goal is to generate enough income to leave your job, your side hustle will help get you there.👍
Creating multiple streams of income is one of the smartest decisions you can make for yourself and your future.
Cheers to your #SideHustle!🎉🎉
