Side Gig Entrepreneurs



Could you still accomplish these same dynamics working from while also concentrating even more?  I would argue that you can be more engaged and interactive while working from home.  Instead of sitting in a meeting, you may be able to multi-task and accomplish while at home on a conference call or Zoom meeting.


Side gigs allow entrepreneurs to strategize about new business opportunities that don't currently exist or need to be improved upon.  While working from home offers so many opportunities for entrepreneurs harnessing this passion requires dedication, time, and commitment. 

What are some of the advantages of working from home?


The opportunity to reduce wasted time and benefit from extra time can be one of the best advantages.  Many of us commute to and from our jobs and are required to sit in traffic essentially wasting time.  There are not many opportunities for us to grow our entrepreneurial spirit than if we were at home with time to focus. 


You may say that listening to the radio, satellite radio or streaming books or podcasts may be productive while driving your car.  Yes, this can be extremely productive; however, how focused are you on your thinking.  This may cause you to be distracted if you are too fully engaged in your media you are listening to.

Side Gig / Freelancer Websites:


There are several dozen side gig or freelancer type websites out there.  I would suggest at least exploring both Fiveer as well as Upwork for ideas.  Type in keywords and you will be amazed at what skills you likely already have and what people may pay for those skills.


Side gig and freelancer sites can be dominated by low-cost providers.  Be careful of pricing your services too low as this may appear to make seem cheap and low quality by some.  Others may appreciate your services at a discount (and an additional discount for fees associated with these websites) and offer glowing reviews to help build your base.


You may even find other providers who could compliment you and offer additional services you didn't think you could offer.  These partnerships may help your business to grow and expand.  Please make sure that you can rely on these partners and that their work is of high quality.  If it is not this could damage your reputation.


Conclusion:


Many of us are inspiring entrepreneurs hoping for more time and resources to allow us to dedicate our lives to our passion.  Side gigs offer an opportunity to create, change, adapt, scale, and grow your business while not relying on it for a full-time income. 


There are many side gigs that allow for future entrepreneurs to enhance and learn new skills highly demanded in today's economy.  Explore opportunities to try out different side gigs and learn what may create you to be more passionate about it.
