You don’t have to replace your day job to run a side hustle. Small net gains can suffice, especially if those gains include personal fulfillment. If you enjoy the work and enjoy the company of your clients and crew, that alone could make a side hustle worth the effort.
Consider the cost savings of a side hustle. You could learn a new skill with an education that pays for itself. You could afford those upgrades to your hobby gear that you’ve longed for. And if your small hustle doesn’t work out, you can quit it with minimal fuss and keep anything you bought. This beats the heck out of student loans and five year leases.
How quickly could you start taking payments for your product or service? A month? A week? A day? You only need a single sales page, after all, to prove that someone would pay. Why not draft that right now? Your future clients and customers are waiting.
