Lesson #6: Choosing Your #1
Side Hustle Skill
Congratulations! You’ve now identified that you’ve got some viable and profitable skills. Now we get to the pointy end of the stick — it’s time to choose just one of those skills.
It is far easier to kick a side hustle off with just one skill. Try to start with multiple skills will lead to failure and overwhelm... something we wanna avoid.
Out of the list of viable skills, eliminate the ones you don't really enjoy. So start with eliminating any skills you've given a rank of 3 to
Next, make a decision between those you've ranked at 1 and 2 on each list - the aim is to delete at least a further one from the lists you have left. Common sense would say those you've rank at #2 should go, but that's your decision.
Now you should be left with the skills you gave a rank of #1 too.
Looking at these skills, which one do you like the most or could do blindfolded?
It’s important to note that if you’re going with a skill that is the easiest for you to do but isn’t something you necessarily enjoy doing, then keep the following in mind: The side hustle that you start with doesn’t have to be the side hustle that you stick with forever.
Now you should have your one skill. I’m not saying that you’ll never be able to do anything with those other skills you eliminated, but to start a profitable side hustle, make it easier on yourself and just start with one!
Your turn — find that side hustle!
Wahoo — this is the fun part! Identifying which side hustle skill you're gonna run with in starting your profitable side hustle. Enjoy the process and don't throw away your lists... keep those for the future.
