In December 2020, 140,000 people lost their job, all of them held by women.*
This is leading more and more women to consider how they take their financial and career future into their own hands, turning towards starting entrepreneurial ventures. Stepping off your steady, salaried career isn’t as easy or as quick as turning off the ‘spicket’ but it is, 100% doable if you create a plan, structure and become disciplined. You too can start a side hustle and grow it.
In this episode, we give you some thoughts, strategies and success stories around starting your side business.
Kill the term Side Hustle.
We all need it stop calling it that. We get tired hearing it and we are already hustling to our max! You don’t have to hustle to build a business.
You CAN without sacrifice: Get real about what your beliefs are around ‘what you have to give up’ to build a business and shift that to ‘what you get to do’ when you build a business.
Mentally Prepare for the Long Haul: This is a slow build, a process and with the entire human species not having patience because of our instant gratification world, if you go into the business expecting miracles, quickly, you are going to give up before you get momentum.
Redefining Your Priorities: You need to scrutinize your free time or your time outside of work and really consider what’s the most important and your Ultimate Why for starting the side biz.
Find Your Time not Find THE Time: When are you most creative? When do you feel in the flow? A huge reason why people who want to create a business fail is because they work on it at the wrong time. You need to be in alignment with how your internal rhythm works and put your business in the slots where you are most productive.
Devise a Plan: When time is scarce, you need to develop several containers of goals.
