Everything you need to know about starting your own side hustle
Updated: 7 days ago
Despite the whirlwind of a year that it has been thus far, 2020 has most likely had you reassessing and re-evaluating your current and future work goals. Whether you’re entering a tough job market as a recent graduate or were furloughed from work, there’s never been a better time to start thinking about diversifying your streams of income. So if you’ve been putting off turning that side passion into a side hustle, now is the time to get started!
Using my experience as a Marketing and Communications professional combined with my passion for design, I launched High Flying Design during the coronavirus pandemic to help bring hair and beauty salons online after being forced to shut. Since June 2020 (when I launched my website design studio), I’ve had the opportunity to help and support both service-based businesses and retailers - whether just starting out or ready to level up - in growing their brands online.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Pepper Your Talk about how I started my own side hustle and the advice I wish I knew at the start of my journey. From the importance of finding a mentor and asking for advice to researching your audience – get inspired and get booked!
