Juggling the J-O-B and Side Business

Working a full time job and growing a side business takes hard work, sacrificing time, and getting comfortable with juggling all the different parts of your life. Here are a few ways we manage in this #SXSFriday5:⠀ ⠀ 1. ✍🏽 Learn to prioritize // Figure out what needs to come first– without compromising your job. Consider spending the beginning of the week getting ahead of work projects, so you have more time to delegate to your side business. ⠀ ⠀ 2. 💯 Sacrifice // Netflix binges, post-work couch naps, and going out to other events or parties may have to wait. Figure out what you want your life to look like and what’s important to you while working a job + growing a business. Is it having weekend downtime? Date night? Your actions should match your business intentions. ⠀ ⠀ 3. ⏰ Set work hours // Hopping back and forth between your job and your business is a quick way to get very little done. Set hours where you’ll focus on your job, your side business, and your personal life.⠀ ⠀ 4. ✨ Be realistic with your goals! // If you’re working full time and managing a side biz, telling yourself you’re quitting tomorrow or idolizing the laptop lifestyle will only make you feel stuck and discouraged. Set goals you know are achievable and realistic, like “I will pay for a new vacation outfit with my side business by the end of the month” or “in 1 Year, I will earn (insert $$$ here) from my business”.⠀ ⠀ 5. 🙏🏼 Be grateful! // While you may want to scale your personal business to full time in the future, having a job allows you to continue to pay your bills and invest into your business. ⠀ ⠀ It’s a constant work in progress, and there will be days where you drop the ball, but use those moments to learn and grow!⠀ ⠀ What tips have you learned working full time and growing a side business/brand? 💋 Share below!
