Your career isn’t just about the job you do from nine-to-five – it’s about the way you develop in your personal time. There’s probably nothing more depressing than seeing someone whose life is strictly divided into “work” and “play” and spends one half or the other wishing they were doing something else. Developing a mutually complementary balance is a great way to fulfill yourself if you’re a high-achiever who is passionate about business.
One way to begin is to start your own small business (which seems like a big scary word, even though it isn’t that difficult) or side-hustle in your spare time. Figuring out how to establish even a small eBay account and make it economically viable for the amount of time you put in is like a business career in miniature. With organization and focus, you can put the lessons of your day job into a new context – while sending you back to work with new ideas to try. And of course, a successful side-hustle will also involve earning a bit of extra cash to help make ends meet or to put in a special fund for your next big trip or investment.
What’s more, in this age of the internet, the options for a side-hustle that’s easy to do in your time off are plenty. eBay may be kind of a dead end once you’ve sold all your stuff – but if you like to get crafty, there’s always Etsy. Figuring out your angle on affiliate marketing, or becoming a virtual assistant on FancyHands, are excellent ways of developing skills that may be more specific to your regular career.
Whether you decide to do something professional like that or you would prefer to find a way to monetize the things you already like to do in your spare time, you’re sure to find a good idea for a side-hustle in this new infographic from QuickQuid. Give it a look and keep this weekend free – it’s time to rustle up a business plan!
