Side hustles fund dreams, they are not what you should be passionate about.
When working with my clients I often hear their frustrations with not wanting to do certain side hustles because it isn’t aligned with their dreams or passions, and while I totally can understand, I also have to help them differentiate between the two.
Your passion is typically that thing you’ve dreamed about your entire life. The thing you could do no matter how much money you make or don’t make. Its the thing that makes you come the most ALIVE!
Your side hustle is the thing that you do that pays you, but you use the money to invest into whatever is needed so that you can do your passion.
For my passion, I desire to rescue women in Human Trafficking, but in order to do that I need money. The women unfortunately do not have the means to be able to rescue themselves or for a period of time take care of themselves, so I have to have money to be able to invest in them; in a sense.
My side hustle has always been network marketing. Although I have grown to be very fond of it, it’s definitely not my passion. I spent many years learning, building and growing in network marketing, but it doesn’t keep me up at night like Human Trafficking does. Yes, I have become very good at building a business, selling products and recruiting team members, but that still doesn’t make it my passion.
What I am basically trying to say is that, your passion is not going to fund itself, so you need something on the side.
