If 2020 has taught us anything, it's to be creative!

If you've had a side hustle you've been wanting to do, but don't know how to get started, we asked Michelle McCullough for some advice.

Here are her three tips for side hustle success:

  1. Get clear on your "why". Do you want extra money? Are you looking for self personal fulfillment? Do you want a new job? If you're not clear on why you want to start a side hustle, it's hard to focus. Michelle recommends writing your "why" down on a 3x5 card to make it clear to yourself.
  2. Schedule your success! If you want anything to thrive, you have to make time for it. Michelle says just as you would schedule a time to go to the gym, schedule time to work on your project or business. This can even be short periods of time, for instance, first thing in the morning, your lunch break or when you put your kids down for a nap.
  3. Ask yourself this question, "Who can help me?". Michelle says you don't have to do everything yourself. Use the expertise of others you may know. Involve them and ask for help!
