My side-hustle doesn't make any money. In fact, it costs me money. And that's okay.
What is my side-hustle?
Well, its not really a side-hustle at all. Its more like my main-hustle and my 9-5 job is my side-hustle to make the main-hustle possible.
So the better question is: What is my main-hustle?
💍 Nurturing the relationship I have with my wife.
👦🏼 👧🏼 Raising the two gremlins which we call kids.
👨👩👧👦 Creating a family culture of love, respect, and fun.
Focus on fulfillment
Recently I've been exploring all the ways I can diversify my revenue stream to (1) pursue personal interests and (2) provide more security for my family.
But this past weekend I tuned out the world and turned inward. What was my inner-self saying which I was crowding out by too much activity and noise?
Well...that there is a time and season for everything. And my greatest fulfillment at this time will come from investing more in my main-hustle. And my 9-5 job, which I do enjoy.
I could go on...
There is so much I could talk about on this topic...but I'll stop here. Happy to chat more about it. It feels somewhat counter-culture to the anti-9-5 jobs and the constant conversations about side-hustles.
To each his own, and let's celebrate that diversity!
(disclaimer: I'm not saying everyone with a family shares this view, this is just my recent experience)
