I shared something on my Instagram Stories about how it still sometimes blows my mind that I escaped my 9-5 cubicle job to work for myself, make more money, and work from home, cuddled up in a blanket most days. I also shared that I now work WAY harder and I work longer hours… but I’m WAY happier than I ever have been.
Sure, it’s lonely sometimes. It’s stressful sometimes. It’s confusing sometimes. And staying in a 9-5 job with a nice salary and benefits would have been soooo much easier. But I’ve always desired freedom in my life… freedom to create my own schedule, freedom to work on what I want to work on, freedom to work with clients I wanted to work with… and even the freedom to wear whatever I wanted every day even though that may be trivial to some.
I get questions about how I did this all of the time, so I wanted to just give a really brief run-down of the steps I took to start my “side business” and then grow it to a full-time career. 🙂
So, there you have it! I realize this is a very bare-bones guide to starting and growing a side business, but these are the key steps I took along my journey. There is SO MUCH I could share…. so much more than what I can share in a single blog post. I genuinely want to help other people do what I did, and my wheels are turning with BIGGER, better ways I can do this.
If you’re reading this… and you’re dreaming about creating your own side business and growing it to a full-time career, just know that I’m here for you! If this is a goal of yours, please subscribe to my email list at the bottom of this page and stay in touch. I definitely want to create a resource for people like you — people who desire freedom in their lives and careers — people who want to work for themselves someday. I’m not exactly sure what that looks like yet… but just be confident that I’ll come up with something! 😉
Thanks for reading! I’m rooting for you!
