First step:

Research 1 side job this week


1. This week, research one side job and learn all you can about it.
2. Next week, do so with two side jobs.
3. Keep increasing, until you have a healthy list of potential side jobs you could realistically do.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. Just like with any habit, dedicating same time of day for research can help develop this habit faster. More so, when you finally find something you can work on, you can use the research time for actual work.
✓ Trigger your mind. Have your notebook or other research material somewhere visible, so you wouldn’t have an excuse of forgetting about it.
✓ Let the app help. You may also use the reminder function of this app to ring the time for research.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone a month of successful research reward yourself by picking out the most realistic side job and actually do it.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Think realistically. Answer yourself several basic questions about the side hustle you’re researching: how much time do you have to work on it? Do you have all equipment needed? Do you have enough capital to invest in the start? Is it something you would enjoy doing? Is it possible to earn a living from this side job? If you answer all questions as yes, then this side job is for you.
✓ Every little helps. And even if you didn’t answer all the questions positively, even some positive answers may lead to successful start. Pick out something that’s easy to do for the first trial and then increase the difficulty as you go along.
