Working a day job and maintaining another that you’re passionate about as a side job or vice versa can always offer immense benefits both financially and for personal growth, although some believe that between how a passion turns into a lucrative source of income and keeping a day job can be an arduous thing to joggle.
So, here are five things you might want to consider when attempting to joggling the two:
Which means dreaming it firstly. You have to begin this with a dream. Dream and visualise how that job you want to run on the side and that your day job will play out.
When you, first of all, cook up what you desire and how you want it to go in your head, and believe in yourself that you’ll scale through any hurdle that needs jumping over, to bring this into reality, then you’re a step towards embodying this new job plan of yours you aspire to own.
Next will be an orientation on how to go about this. Now you’re done picturing it in your head, the next step should be delving further by constantly learning about the pathways around and within navigating these jobs that your interest holds.
These days, education is mostly free and accessible through avenues such as the internet and public libraries—just waiting at our disposal
YouTube channels, audio-books, podcasts, or even social media groups can offer a range of free learning mediums for to-be side-job seekers.
Once you’re done with learning about the most that has to do with navigating your side job and day job, it is time to evaluate it.
This will simply give you an understanding of how these jobs will fare between the two, as well as how they will turn out in real-time.
Seeking opinions can go a long way in giving you a better idea on how to shuffle the two, that way you really know which one will really take precedence over the other
By now it’s time to test the waters, in creating a pathway for your two jobs to flourish, you need to experiment it yourself just to figure out the best areas, time, and attention to commit to either of the two.
You might feel boxed-in with one job and unable to experiment with other options, but when you finally get to pick up another on the side, the first step towards actually keeping it afloat when brought to the fore is to experiment it first.
Now, here is the last and final step. All preparations are complete, and it is now time to let go of all restraints, and go the whole nine yards with joggling the two jobs.
On treading this path, you may need a decent amount of time, patience, concentration, and dedication when joggling between the two especially if they are in separate fields.
Going by these few steps could land you an edge over the laborious task of keeping two jobs at a time as a start-up as against the way many people may think.
Now make that move, make that first buck, maybe sooner than later, you’ll already be making some decent amount of money from this.
