On episode 225 of RNFM Radio, we discuss the notion of having a side hustle and what it means to your nursing career. If you want or need extra money or have a business idea you’d like to test out in a low-risk way, having a side hustle is a way to do something on the side without leaving your job.
Rather than launching a full-scale business, a side hustle can be fun, remunerative, or an interesting experience/experiment. You may already be just a few steps away from monetizing or launching an idea!
- Would you want to test an idea?
- Would you like to validate your strengths or ideas?
- Would you like to do some research or development (R & D)?
- Do you have an idea to take people on travel tours of a country you know and like?
- Would you like to prepare for leaving your job some day?
- Would you like to try your hand at business?
- You can build your confidence by launching something small and testing it on friends, colleagues, family, or others!
Lyft and Uber are good side hustles for some people.
Businesses can ramp up too quickly without pre-testing, and then crash and burn. Doing a small launch on the side can be a great experiment!
Remember to delegate! Focus on your strengths and interests—delegate and CELEBRATE!
