Everything you need to know

Everyone today needs to think about how to create their first Side Hustle. It takes 2-3 jobs to create one source of income, and you need to think about diversifying your income. Even if you love your job, no one will ever care about your well-being as much as you. If you want to create security, you have to do it for yourself. A side hustle isn’t just about making more money, even though that's great. There are many benefits and no downside. You’ll have more confidence, security, and maybe even a backup plan. And of course, let’s not forget the obvious: a side hustle gives you extra cash to travel, pay off debt, or save for the future. Some key things you will learn in this Skillit: Discover profitable ideas using the skills you already have What Kind of Hustle is best for you How to get started before you feel ready. Go from Idea to Action: a proven process to get started quickly Divide your limited time to work only on what’s essential Understand all you need to know about business licenses, bank accounts, and taxes Make more money once you’re up and running (without spending a lot of extra time)

About Sarah

I am an award-winning entrepreneur on early-stage startups, technology and the future of work having worked with top companies like Google and MaRS, and currently the co-founder of this incredible platform, Skillit! While I've worked at big companies, I've always spent my downtime building side hustles - opportunities that could help me explore my passion, learn new skills or simply earn money. I want to help others get started in pursuing their passion or interests, and what better way to do than teach people the skill of How to Start? My best learning has always come from skilled peers and not through an online course, or bite-sized learning. I hope you will join me in learning the art (and science) of building your first side-hustle.
