How to Maximize Your Side Gig

Make your side gig a habit. Work on it for the same duration every day. 

  • See humans before they become customers. 
  • Invest at least 20% of the side gig money you make in assets, so you don’t have to work your face off for the rest of your life and trade time for money. 
  • Educate yourself along the way. You don’t know everything. The best side gig is the one you master through prioritizing learning 
  • Wear your side gig loud and proud. It’s okay to have a side gig.
