Tips On How To Grow Your Side Hustle As A Full-Time Worker

Many workers are starting to see reasons why they should have a side hustle. As a result, this is now the ‘gig economy’. Having another means of income can be beneficial for a number of reasons, however, this is not something that every employee must venture into.

You need to be certain it’s something you are comfortable with. Otherwise, let it remain a hobby as running a business however small is no easy feat!

It’s a way of reducing your dependency on your main source of income (i.e. a backup plan for your life or career). A side hustle is also one way of reaching financial freedom, as you are able to increase your residual income most especially if your full-time income isn’t good enough.

How Mentorship Has Helped Me

A few years ago, I didn’t think mentorship was of importance. Today, I can attest to how important having a mentor is as I’ve gained immensely from it and can tell you that it’s a lifesaver. Is there one way to find a mentor? The answer is no.

At every stage in our lives we look out for direction, most usually from those who have had similar experiences in that path – a mentor. Whether it’s an official or unofficial arrangement is a different discussion. What’s most important is deriving the benefits that come from mentorship.

My world of mentorship all started the day I decided to join a friend for a networking event. At first, I was skeptical about going for the event but summoned up courage as I wanted to mingle a bit.

Little Known Ways To Get Rid Of These 2 Life Problems

Do you often think of some of the life problems we face as humans, better put adults? We all go through some form of obstacles in life.

Growing up, we watched cartoons that ended with: “and they lived happily ever after…” At least, I did. Naturally, we bought into the idea of never having any worries. We grew older, faced and still face a number of life challenges and find it somewhat difficult to navigate. But this shouldn’t be.

Do you think that if we were taught from a young age that adversity was a common thing with living we’d have learned to solve life issues easily?

As human beings, we are always looking to solve problems which have led to a number of inventions like electricity, internet, technology, etc. However, what’s most challenging is solving problems with our personal lives and dealing with our minds.

Book Review: The Obstacle is The Way by Ryan Holiday

In this article, I’ll review The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday. However, before I begin since this is my first book review, I’ll have to start by giving credit to my mother who thought it wise to take me along with her to the library when I was around 8 years or so.

At the time, she was studying for her masters. This little act has helped shape my life when it comes to areas of self-development even though at the time I was reading Barbie stories.

Even before her rigorous studying days/ months, my mother encouraged active reading by making us exchange books and then we’ll recommend books to each other. She and my father also created a mini-library in our house and I think all these fostered a reading culture in me.

How To Make Your Work Experience Count: To Study Or Not?

Every experience we go through in life is a lesson and no matter how much we may think there might have been some mistakes somewhere, it shouldn’t be seen that way. This is a lesson I have learned time and over again.

Career growth and planning has fascinated me for the most part of my life. One question I often receive is: “Zinny, I am about to immigrate, should I study or just find a job?”

The next question I most likely ask is: “what would you want to do career wise? Do you want to go ahead practicing what you already do in your home country or would you rather change career?”

Whatever your answer to that question is should help determine next steps. However, from my discussion with some readers who ask me this question, I have realized that most aren’t necessarily sure what they want to do next and even if they want a career change, they aren’t sure how to go about it and how to gain or grow work experience.
