No, we’re not saying quit your job and lay everything on the line in a quest to start your own business. In fact, quite the opposite – stay in your job but build a side-hustle that brings in some extra money.
Doing this can be an educational and enriching experience. You’ll appreciate the kind of stress bosses face on a daily basis. You are also likely to hone your skillset and business-understanding to produce a valuable service.
Furthermore, being more business-savvy can make you a valuable employee, putting you in the position to do a better job which could lead to a future promotion and/or pay-raise.
At the end of the day, if your side-hustle becomes profitable enough, you could very well take the plunge and go full-time. However, in the meantime, just enjoy earning a few extra bucks while knowing you’ve created a valuable business.
