There are so many ways to hustle in the world today. And because the internet is such an amazing tool when it comes to spreading information, we often don’t have to quit our day job to have a side hustle. Well, at least not right away.
No matter what your interests, it’s likely that your hobbies or the things that you’re good at can be turned into your source of income. From marketing to art and even consulting, women are using their skills to start multiple businesses and make connections. Danielle from The Bonita Project gave some advice to our users under the Entrepreneurship Spotlight about starting their own business or possibly switching career fields.
If you have an idea about what you want to do good news, you’ve already started! There really aren’t any paved or guaranteed ways to know that a business or a plan will be successful but there are a few things that you can do to make it more possible. So many women worry about the things that they don’t know or skills that they don’t have rather than focus on the things they do. Getting experience from any place you can is the best way to add to your skills and knowledge.
Having an edge can also help set you apart in any industry you’re in. It’s the small things that can make a huge difference for people, especially if you’re in an industry that is overly saturated. Incorporating community into a business can make consumers and investors feel like they are apart of something special. It’s also what can make the difference between a business succeeding or failing. It also gives you the opportunity to eventually create a work environment where you set the rules, and who doesn’t want that?
While there is no secret formula to create a genuine and organic community, pouring your passions and self into your business will only help. Often the best businesses don’t start as businesses but instead as passion projects or hobbies. So remember not to get caught up in making something an overnight success. It is better to build something long-lasting even if it takes more time.
