Turn Passion into a Side Hustle


Do you have a passion that you'd love to turn into a side hustle? Take this as your sign - go ahead and make it happen. Side hustles are great ways to increase your income and skill set and add more experience to your CV. They're also fantastic ways to meet new people and learn about yourself.

Pick something that energises you and motivates you to see it through.

This is crucial. When you're in the middle of a project, and things are going wrong, having an interest in it will help keep your motivation. Your work is more likely to be better when you're passionate about what you do because it's not just a job, but a hobby too!

Use your passion to help you grow and learn.

  • If you love learning a new language, why not take a course in it?

  • Use your passion to help others. If you enjoy being around children, consider becoming a teacher or babysitter!

Understand why employers like candidates who have a side hustle.

Employers like candidates who have a side hustle because it shows them that you are motivated, have a passion for something and are willing to go the extra mile. It also shows that you are not afraid of hard work and are eager to take on new challenges.

Employers will see this as an advantage if your side hustle involves helping others because they know that employees with such skills make excellent managers or leaders.

Make sure it doesn't impact your full-time job, and get into a routine.

Your side hustle is important, but it's not your primary job. Make sure you have time to do both and don't let one affect the other.

It's always good to set a routine for yourself and keep things organised so that your mind stays clear when working on both sides of your life. You should be able to focus on what needs to be done in either situation without letting either overwhelm you or put unnecessary stress on yourself.

It's easy for people who may not understand what we do day-to-day at our jobs or how much time we spend doing them (or lack thereof) to criticise us when they don't know all that goes into what we do or why they're wrong about their assumptions regarding our work ethic or value as professionals/employees/etcetera. There are people out there who want nothing more than for us not to succeed in any way--even if that means downplaying our accomplishments by putting negative connotations around them--so make sure not to let any negativity affect how confident we feel about ourselves when making decisions about how best utilise our skillset outside of work hours because if anyone knows anything about success stories involving hard work over long periods then surely those people must be familiar with perseverance!

Be confident, and don't let any negativity affect your mindset.

An essential part of turning passion into a career is keeping your mindset in check. If you let negativity infiltrate your thoughts, it can be hard to focus on the task and reflect on what needs to be done. It’s important to remember that no matter what happens, there are people who root for you and want you to succeed.

If there are negative people in your life (be it family, friends or co-workers), make sure that they don’t affect your mindset or distract you from what will help keep you motivated and happy!

Be persistent, even when things don't go as planned.

If you want to turn your passion into a side hustle, it's essential that you're persistent. This means being persistent even when things don't go as planned. It also means being persistent despite the negative thoughts that will inevitably creep in and try to discourage you. And if someone tries to prevent you, don't let them get away with it!

  • Don't give up on yourself or your side hustle just because things aren't going reasonably as expected (or maybe they are). You can make adjustments along the way—that's what makes a real entrepreneur!

  • When those negative thoughts start creeping in, fight back against them with positive affirmations like "I'm going to do this!" or "I'm not an expert yet, but I will be!" The more time we spend thinking positively, the less time we have stuck in self-doubt mode. You'll be surprised how quickly those doubts fade when we focus on our goals instead of letting them control us from within our mindsets! Plus, when we think positively about ourselves and our future endeavours, other people won't be able to bring us down either, so keep believing in yourself no matter what other people say about how 'impossible' something might seem at first glance."

Follow these steps to turn your passions into a side hustle, enjoy the journey and be proud of the result.

  • Be prepared to work hard

  • Be ready to make sacrifices

  • Be willing to give up some of your free time

  • Be prepared to take risks

  • Be prepared to learn from your mistakes and failures. Fail often, but don’t fail too much! As long as you know something each time, it is worth it. You have made progress and learned something new. If you fall once or twice, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again until you succeed.


You don't have to rely on luck to find a good job; you can take control of your future. Find out what energises you and turn that into something which could result in new opportunities for you. It's not an easy process, but if it were, everyone would do it. You'll learn new skills and develop your character along the way.
