In our fast paced world, finding free time for yourself is very rare, let alone time to start a side hustle. We all understand that we must grow as individuals, but finding time to work on your personal development almost never happens. Luckily, there are 24 hours in the day. Even if you spend eight of those working, and another eight sleeping, you still have another whole entire eight hours left to do with as you please.
Forget About Goliath
How do you spend your free time? Binge watching Netflix / Amazon Prime. Admitted, I enjoyed the first season of Goliath. (The second not so much.) Nothing wrong with some mandatory relaxation. But, if you spend your free time as screen time anyway, why not do something a bit more productive. Start a side hustle, maybe. Starting something is easy. You don’t need a brick and mortar stores or crippling lease agreements with landlords. With a few clicks, you can start an online side gig.
If you have trouble coming up with ideas as to what you might be, start by looking at things you’re already doing anyway. And then see if you can make a project out of that somehow. It doesn’t even have to be about making money just yet, just be open to the idea – just in case.
Get Started On Something
To get the creative juices flowing, I’ll include some suggestions below. Take a look at some of the linked articles and websites to help you decide what might work for you. Remember that what works on you, likely will also work for you. If there is something you like out there, learn from what they have done and how you may be able to apply this to your business idea. No need to reinvent the wheel.

It’s About Having Options
The point isn’t so much what you should be doing, the point is that you’re doing something. Having options is always a good thing. Too many employees (and entrepreneurs alike, by the way), think their income is capped at what they’re making today or hoping to be making next year – but that’s about as far as the horizon stretches. Have you ever asked a millionaire what he (or she) did for a living? I did. You can read the full article here, but it boils down to options.
Most people have too much work to do and too little time to do it. They worry about keeping their day-job. There’s not enough time for vacation, or spending quality time with loved ones. Been there, done that. But I didn’t get the T-shirt. I’ve signed up for every class I could get my hands on to learn from the best. In my Financial Freedom and Millionaire Mindset class I pass along what I’ve learned. Check it out. It’s about having options.
