Identify Your Passions and Interests
A side hustle is the intersection of passion and profit. In other words, it’s all about taking the things you love and are good at and turning them into a profitable gig.
The first step is to identify what you love to do AND are good at doing. Both elements are required. If you want your side hustle to be sustainable, you must love doing it. If you don’t, you’ll burn out quickly.
You must also be good at your side hustle. In other words, you need to have the necessary skill set to make it a reality.
Ask yourself these questions:
○ What do you absolutely love doing?
○ What have people told you that you’re good at?
○ What do you lose track of time doing?
○ What valuable skills do you have that people would pay for?
○ What needs can you meet?
There is a psychological concept called “flow.” It’s when you find yourself so immersed in an activity that you lose all track of time and are simply focused on what’s in front of you. When do you find yourself in the “flow” of things? Pay attention to these moments. It’s these activities that could turn into viable side hustles.
