If you want to start any creative endeavour, you need to build up to it. Don’t burn yourself out by trying to do everything at once. Instead, build up slowly over time and focus on a few key projects at a time.
Giving it your all is pretty difficult to do, especially when you’re actively trying to keep a steady pay check, or when you’re working 40+ hours a week, or when your team is juggling a dozen other tasks.
Successful side hustles are about relationships. By side-hustling for a few weeks or months and expanding your network, you’ll open yourself up to a lot more people who are in need or who have the development instincts to help you out.
Outside of your 9-to-5, you will have the freedom to explore new parts of town or neighbourhoods and meet many new people. There are great side hustles to explore – some may require a lot of time and a high level of skill, but this might just be your next level up.
