If you read my earlier blog post “Can a Hobby Become a Career” you’ll know that I’m in the process of building a career that fits my lifestyle, interests, and talents (trust me, it’s harder than it sounds).
As a millenial in 2016, I’m in the midst of a work/life revolution. Now, I don’t want to speak for all millenials, but here are a few things that I noticed from my own experinces.
- Now more that ever, a job has become integral to one’s lifestyle. I’ve found that when I really love my job and the people I work with, I don’t mind putting in extra hours or helping with unscheduled ‘favors’ from time to time.
- Perks are only perks beyond the actual job. Wearing jeans to work and having a snack cupboard may peek your interest, but it wont keep you at the job if the work isn’t fulfilling.
- A big misconception I come across in regards to millenials is that we feel entitled. I do agree that I want more and more and more. However, I don’t expected to be handed these things. I am ready to get down and work for the things I want.
Which leads me to the side hussle. In my case, I gave up a full-time job to explore a number of side hussles.
- Exercising a hobby
- Making some extra cash
- Meeting new people
- Enjoying a flexibile lifestyle
Whatever the reason may be, I find more and more people subscribing to the idea of a side-hussle. How do you make the most of your side hussles or personal passion projects?
