These days, starting a business or having a hustle on the side is way easier than it used to be, and let’s face it most jobs available for graduates aren’t paying too much. That’s why you might be tempted to start a side hustle even while you’re working. Here are 3 tips for balancing your day job with your side hustle that will help you avoid a lot of unnecessary stress.
Sell To People In Your Office
If you end up working in a big office for your first job, you can use that to your advantage when it comes to earning some extra cash. You can make some money by selling breakfast meals or something else that people in your office need to the people that you work with. If you find something that your coworkers actually need and regularly, then you’re well on your way to making some money.
Social Media Is Your Best Friend
When you start a business while you’re working, then that business should be online. It’s far easier to manage a social media business while you’re working than to manage a business that requires more in-person attention. When you’re selling on social media, tools like Hootsuite and Later.com plan your content in advance and basically have your business running itself for certain periods.
Take Advantage Of Your Commute
Finally, if you’re running a business while you’re working, you’ll need all the extra time that you can get to attend to the business. During your commute is a great time to create new content for the business page and follow up with your customers. Basically, your commute provides at least a few uninterrupted minutes for you to handle your hustle’s needs.
