Side Hustle

Over the past few weeks I’ve heard two different entrepreneurs reference a “side hustle” as part of their entrepreneurial journey. After I heard it the first time, I didn’t think much of it but when it came up a second time, I realized it’s more of a thing than I thought. Naturally, the next step was to Google it and sure enough there’s even a Side Hustle Nation touting the ability to “build job-free income.” Thinking more about it, it makes sense to reference a side job that’s separate from the normal day-to-day activities as something new.

Here are a few thoughts on entrepreneurs and a side hustle:

The next you hear someone mention a side hustle, ask about their goals and see if you can help them become a full-time entrepreneur. A side hustle can be a good way to make money but it’s often better to figure out how to be a full-time entrepreneur sooner.

What else? What are some other thoughts on side hustle?

  1. I couldn’t agree more. However I think there is a key difference in their motovation. Side hustlers are motivated by the quick buck, the fancy toys, and the allure of what’s associated with being an entrepreneur. Successful emtrepreneurs tend tohavehave have a deep passion for the problem they are trying to solve in the world or they have something to prove. The most successful, often have both.

    There is nothing wrong with a side hustle. I respect it greatly, but I would be slow to try and convert that them.
