Your Name, Your Brand, Your Side Gig

The key is finding a side gig that doesn’t feel like work. Something that isn’t overly time-consuming, but also worth the amount of income per successful project completion.

You already have the skills, knowledge, and expertise needed to build a successful side gig. You just need to figure out how best to leverage it into a profitable business.

Some ideas to consider are freelance writing, dropbox shipping, or services/consultancy (which you would lean on your expertise to offer to clients needing it).

You need to make sure that once you’ve got the idea in mind, research how to start and grow the side gig.

Make sure to check all the legal, tax, and accounting requirements, set up a website with what value you are offering and the services available for procurement, build a social presence on the most logical social media websites of your targeted customers, and be consistent with engagement. Always tweak your processes and possibly automate some (or hire a VA), so you can dedicate the right amount of time without making it feel like a second job.

An ideal goal to start out with is to first make up any expenses you’ve incurred from the startup, then focus on small goals. Maybe $1,000 a month…then up to $1,500, $2,000, etc.

When you do start a business, you are the owner. Your name is on the proverbial door. In life, you have a persona, a profile, an avatar, a brand, a reputation, a name. Whatever you wanna call it, you were always grinding to make sure that that meant something.

If you suck up knowledge, network and offer value and ask for guidance or insight, and truly make a calendar stick with consistency, The world is your oyster. Be smart, be strategic, be wild, take chances, but navigate your lanes with logic and always upskill.

๐ŸŽถ Like the famous Jim Croce song lyrics of โ€œI Got a Nameโ€ read:

Like the pine trees lining the winding road
I got a name, I got a name
Like the singing bird and the croaking toad
I got a name, I got a name
And I carry it with me like my daddy did
But I’m living the dream that he kept hid

Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by

Like the north wind whistling down the sky
I’ve got a song, I’ve got a song
Like the whippoorwill and the baby’s cry
I’ve got a song, I’ve got a song
And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
If it gets me nowhere, I go there proud

Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by

And I’m gonna go there free

Like the fool I am and I’ll always be
I’ve got a dream, I’ve got a dream
They can change their minds but they can’t change me
I’ve got a dream, I’ve got a dream
Well, I know I can share it if you want me to
If you’re going my way, I’ll go with you

Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by
Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by
