Today I want to talk about the side hustle shuffle!
Let’s talk about the side hustle shuffle. What is this fun play on words? It’s what us working stiffs do on the side for fun and extra money. Why? Because we like it!
There’s so many different side hustles that someone can do. You can blog as I do. You can run your own direct sales business. Heck, you can start your own business making anything from T-shirts to hair bobbles. The sky’s the limit! I personally chose to run a couple of direct sales businesses and now, reignite this blog!
When you look for a side hustle, ask yourself some questions. These will help you narrow down your reasons, goals and even help you plan on how to be successful
Questions to Ask Yourself:
- What am I passionate about?
- Do I want to make money or is this a hobby?
- What are my primary and secondary goals with this side hustle?
Once you figure out the answers to those questions, you’re ready to make a list of potential side hustles to explore. If you’re a salesperson by nature, direct sales like Avon or Mary Kay might work for you. If you’re a guy, there are a few companies that men can do well with when it comes to direct sales so just do some digging.
Blogging is a great choice for anyone who prefers to be solitary in their hustle. It’s all individual to you! I am a bit of both and that’s why I do both 🙂
Here’s a list of 99 Side Hustle Ideas from sidehustlenation.com. Many of them can be done from your phone which makes them truly awesome! The key is to pick ones that resonate with you. I just bookmarked that for myself for future use and you should too!
Let’s talk failure!
Yeah I know, it’s not something you WANT to talk about but we have to. Sometimes you’re going to fail. A particular venture may not work out. Your blog may take more time to get traction. (This isn’t a failure, per say but you get where I’m going with this) That’s okay. Each “failure” is an opportunity to refine and reinvent! If something doesn’t work out, just look at your list again and try something new.
There are literally dozens of different side hustles you can try. Some require money up front like a direct sales business, others just your smartphone and a free app. The key is to find what works for you and shuffle your side hustle!
