Dear folks

Do you have a side-hustle when you’re not working the 9-9 job? If so, how do you make time for it?

Yes, mostly be not working 9-9 (and worse!) anymore. I accomplished this by being very selective about my projects, articulating my value as a SME/specialist, automating major parts of my job without telling anyone, and delegating most of the rest.

I used to work 60-80 hour weeks and wouldve told you this is impossible, but alas.

Yes, I make time on the weekends and in my limited spare time. Sucks sometimes

Yeah I do! Tbh my side hustle is something I LOVE. So doing it on the weekends is fun for me. It can be a little stressful at times, but set expectations early and then you’ll be good. I try to get everything done on the weekends.

Hmm I would say work hours are also highly variable for different firms. 9-9 sounds pretty decent

Not necessarily a huge fan of Gary Vaynerchuk, but he has some good advice... one piece of which is that you can’t fake work ethic. When everyone else is sleeping or winding down from the day with an episode of The Office... you work on your startup

Yep. I give up maybe 10% of my weekends to be slightly more diversified in my income streams. It sucks now but hopefully I won’t regret it in the future
