Side Gig To Dream Job
Whether it’s a hobby that you’ve managed to make a buck from or a side hustle you’ve built up to boost your income, lots of us have something we work in in our spare time for fun and for as much money as we can get from it. Some of us even manage to turn a tidy profit from their side gig, but how do you take that next step to convert your bit of side action into a full-time thing?
Most importantly, you need to plan ahead for the day when you can afford to stop working full time, and that means using your side hustle money strategically to take care of the expenses you have, one at a time. When you can finally cover everything with the extra money and still be comfortable, you don’t need that main job anymore.
Of course, this means building up your extra income, through networking, getting advice from mentors, focusing on goal-oriented actions and possibly even hiring a virtual assistant to help take on some of the smaller tasks. Then it’s onto the bigger plans, like looking long-term, defining your free cash flow to help you to grow, and identifying any possible collaborations you can set up with business that can complement your own.
Taking it a step at a time and following these tips from QuickQuid will help you start to transform your side gig into something that really can replace your main job and change your life into exactly the one you had always dreamed of.
