1.) Think about your skills. But of course- you’re not going to start up a side hustle wherein you have little to no talent in your field of choice, right? That would be a terrible decision, and you’d just end up wasting both your and your potential customer/client’s time if you did so. Think about your fortes and talents. If people love your baking why not consider starting up your very own online baking website? If you’re good at fixing technology why not start a small repair kiosk? Know what you’re good at, and turn it into something of use.
2.) Consider your schedule. This is another important thing to take note of. If editing code takes you hours upon hours of valuable time, then you can’t exactly turn it into a side hustle, can you? Nope, it would distract you from your primary job and even if you did somehow manage to do both, you’d barely get any sleep or free time! Choose a side hustle that you know you’ll be able to work into your free time and schedule without sacrificing your mental health, sleep patterns, and overall well-being.
3.) Weigh the pros and cons. Think about the pros and cons of the side hustles you want to turn into reality. If you want to become a part-time designer but think it’s too demanding, then find something else. Consider things like profit, skill and effort usage, and time when coming up with a final decision.
4.) Know what you want. Imagine yourself in ten years turning you’re brand new side hustle into a success. Think about your vision- what do you want this new niche to turn into? What do you want it to become? Once you’ve got a clear hold of what exactly you’d like to happen, it’ll be far easier to settle with one final hustle for you to turn into an amazing opportunity.
5.) Ask for ideas. If all else fails, then ask for help! Ask other people for advice and ideas in order to help you decide which side hustle you should settle with. Try and ask individuals who are close to you and know you well because they are more likely to have the ability to gauge your skill level and talent. Don’t be afraid to reach out to other people when you’re having trouble- no man is an island, after all.
