Starting a side-hustle is a fantastic way for freelancers to generate passive income.

While it may not happen overnight, a successful side-hustle will allow you focus less on meeting your income requirements by any means necessary and focus more on growing a solid freelance business.

However, actually starting your side-hustle can seem daunting so it’s extremely important that you choose something you’re good at and that you love.

“Day #1: Choose your side hustle

Awesome. Day 1 is all about figuring out what your side hustle is going to be. What is your skill that you’re going to monetise?

Answer these questions to dig a little deeper if you don’t already have an idea:

  1. What are you trained to do?
  2. What are your hobbies?
  3. What are you good at?
  4. What do others ask you for help with/seek your advice about?

Write the answers to these questions on a piece of paper, in your Evernote notebook or anywhere that you can easily access over the next 7 days.

Now, identify your top 3 that you would enjoy doing in your spare time, and could get paid for, AND don’t need any further training in. This last point is important if you want to be up and running within 7 days.

You need a skill that you can do with your eyes closed, literally and figuratively.

Don’t move on to Day 2 until you’ve got at least 3 options.”
