Launching a Side Hustle
Starting a business, work from home, side hustle – you don’t have to be online for 5 seconds before you see an ad, site, or read someone saying how easy it is to get started.
It’s kind of half-true.
I would say there are more low-cost ways to get started with making money on the side, but free? No.
Whether you’re working on the side through an app like Uber, Wag, or GrubHub, flipping furniture and other yard sale treasure for profit, or working strictly online, starting a business is probably the easiest part.
Running and growing one? That’s the work.
I know some of you are interested in knocking out your debt faster or you’re to save up for a big goal.
Maybe a buy a house or bump up your savings for your little one’s arrival and you’re thinking, could a side business be what I need?
Honestly, it could.
There is a flexibility that you have when you’re in charge.
But it’ no cakewalk.
So today I want to share my chat with Marc over at Vital Dollar about his journey from working in an office, starting a side hustle, to working from home full-time.
In this episode, we’ll discuss:
- Why he made this transition from employee to an entrepreneur and when he knew he was ready
- Tips to help you use that income to reach your goals faster
- And if do become a full-time entrepreneur, how to live on an income that can fluctuate
Hope your enjoy!
