Avoiding burnout while building your side hustle

The Secret to Building a Successful Side Hustle: Avoiding Burnout and Staying Motivated

Years ago, when I first began my side hustle, I loved it.

I was driven and passionate, and I threw myself into my work, dedicating countless hours and energy towards making it a success.

I was always pushing myself to do more, to be better, and to achieve my goals.

However, as time went on, I started to feel more and more exhausted.

Despite getting enough sleep and taking care of myself, I felt like I was running on empty.

Suddenly I struggled to find joy in my work and even simple tasks seemed insurmountable.

Despite all of this, I didn’t think I had burnout. I thought I just needed a break or to push through it.

One of the worst things you can experience as a side hustler is burnout.

When we’re building a side hustle, we’re often working long hours and dedicating a lot of our time and energy to something that may not be generating much income yet. This can be a recipe for burnout.

Burnout is a state of mental, physical, and emotional exhaustion that can happen when we are overworked, undervalued, and disconnected from our sense of purpose.

That’s why it’s so important to recognize the early warning signs of burnout and take steps to prevent it so that you can continue having fun while building your side hustle without sacrificing your mental well-being.

And in this newsletter, we’ll help you do just that!

Freelance Writing: A closer look at a highly profitable side hustle

Is blogging still a good side hustle?

If you are not familiar with my story, then you should know that blogging has always been a core component of how I became who I am today. The side hustle that I started in 2009 as a passion project has grown to become a massive beast.

If you are wondering whether blogs can still be a great side hustle, the answer is a resounding yes. Even if the blog environment is more competitive than ever, the blog industry has equally grown to be just as profitable.

And inside this newsletter, we share with you all the reasons why blogging is still a great side hustle.

How To Choose The Right Side Hustle For You

How to Choose the Right Side Hustle For You

Back in 2008, I needed a way to make money.

I was in between jobs at the time, which is just another way to say I didn’t have one. As I tried to figure out what I could do, I noticed that social media was growing at a dramatic rate, and that it gave you the power to publish whatever you wanted.

And that’s how my side hustle was born. I started my website back in 2009 with a $10 investment and a lot of passion, but it wouldn’t be until a year later that it would really take off. During that time, I worked really hard, even waking up in the middle of the night just to post.

What I’m trying to say is that while side hustles can be incredibly rewarding, they require a lot of effort. This makes it crucial that you know exactly what you are getting into when you choose a side hustle, and that you know how to choose the right one.

And that’s exactly what we’ll reveal inside this newsletter.
