By | Thursday, May 14, 2015


A little while back, we briefly discussed 12 awesome side jobs that you could get yourself involved with to make a little money outside of your 9-5 job. I’m no stranger to this working situation, and I believe it’s extremely beneficial to have your hands in a few different endeavors at any given moment. Practicing how to organize your time effectively and remaining flexible will keep you on your toes and make your work adaptable and sharp.

At any given moment, I will usually be working on 3-4 different freelance projects or side jobs, which can be anything from to designing logos and websites, to babysitting and teaching dance technique classes. I enjoy staying busy and making my own money, and the feeling of independence that comes with it. Today, I’ve channeled the theme of side gigs in a more direct course of action — opportunities that you can capitalize on this very moment if you so choose.
