You’ve heard about ’em, right? Side hustles. That’s the recent slang for work you can do “on the side.” Or in addition to what you’re doing. Or something you can do till something better comes along. And the good news is, these days, they can turn into a full-time business. Plus, they can be awesome college alternatives.
Take these side hustles for example:
How about a drop-shipping business? If you’re good at sales and marketing, but you’d rather not build and maintain a warehouse, this could be your side hustle. When you drop-ship, it just means you can set up a website where customers buy your stuff. And the stuff gets shipped by the manufacturer or actual retailer. Look up drop-ship and you’ll get lots of ideas.
Maybe you’re creative. And maybe you’d like to actually sell your cool stuff. These days you’ve got lots of options to sell your physical goods online. And you don’t even have to start your own store. You could set up a profile on sites like eBay, Etsy, and Pinterest. And you could use Shopify for your direct transactions.
But maybe you’d rather not have to deal with shipping a bunch of physical stuff all over the place. No problem. Go digital. And again, you don’t have to even build your own website to start (I recommend one as soon as you can afford it, though.) If you’re good at graphic design, audio or video editing, web design, or you have other digital skills, post videos of you in action on YouTube. And take your designs up a notch with print on demand.
Check into Printful and Fiverr and Upwork. Lots of other platforms like those, too.
And I’m just scratching the surface on side hustles.
There’s writing work, proofreading work, virtual assistant work, transcription services, and even teaching. But one thing I recommend is that you figure out who YOU are. Figure out what YOU want to do with your life. And make sure you focus on what YOU can do and where YOU want to go.
Those are the starting points for anyone who’s interested in a more focused approach to life than most colleges provide. And those are reasons why I created RondaReady YOUniversity. To help YOU figure out your best starting point. And then to help you figure out how to get where you wanna go, faster.
