Side hustles

Yo who has a side hustle here? Is it to make money or just to relax/pay for itself?


I do some woodworking when I'm not slingin saas... but I don't really make much money from it, it's mostly just to get my mind off work.

I work on the WR product
I participate in user interviews as a side gig. Some of them make $200 to $300 for 1-2 hours of giving my opinion 😎 also a nice way to learn more about people and other industries!

I want it. This money and experience can help me go a long way in Egypt, especially that I'm now being asked to interview people in my company for non sales roles.

I have a couple side hustles. The priority is it to:

1) learn something newΒ  i.e. "invest in myself"Β Β Β 

2) satisfy my ADD - I can't focus on one thingΒ 

3) earn money to accelerate by road to retirement.Β 

My side hustles are:
online clothing store
launched a distillery
investing in other businesses - ~$20K per year

How did you start with the online clothing store? Did you import clothes from another country, get a factory to create them for you, or flip clothes you get at a good deal?Β

I have a print to order setup. The store is setup on Shopify, I created my own designs for the apparel, and Printful (fulfillment company) is connected to my Shopify store. All of the backend and administration is automated. Allowing me to focus on marketing and customer service.Β 

Using Printful (or similar companies) eliminates the need to sit on inventory, which can be very costly.Β 

The store is calledΒ  https://www.blacksynthcollection.com/ if you want to check it out.Β

I enjoy making podcasts and sharing them with family and friends (because they're usually about them). I feel like I need a creative space outside of the 9-5 hustle even though there's no real money involved... although maybe one day πŸ€”

Sounds kind of fun. How to you know what price to pay and to sell it.Β 

Or do you just let the people bid on it?

I make jewelry and collect gems. I haven't become good enough to sell anything yet, but I am getting close.

Right now, I'm like you. I do it to relax. Not too worried about making from it yet, but eventually I want to have an online store selling my pieces.Β

I co founded a clothing company. We manufacture clothes in two factories in Europe and sell online and through stores, takes up a few hours of my day in administration, while my partner does the creative part + social media.

I tried several different side hustles, but found it hard to keep it up while also juggling a quota.

Nowadays the Sales Rapper is 50% learning new skills and keeping my selling ability active, and 50% allowing myself to continue doing an expensive music hobby.

Love woodworking as well. I enjoy flipping furniture.Β 

In the past I cleaned houses after work, that was purely that I hated student loans and refused to have them around forever. Now I firmly believe if I am doing anything extra, I must enjoy it.
