Willow Smith’s ‘Whip My Hair’ Song Inspires Women!
Willow’s Line: “Just whip it.”
Side Hustle Translation: “Just do the damn thing.”
You have 10 million reasons why you “can’t” do what you really love to do. The kids aren’t old enough. You don’t have time. You can’t afford to rely on creative abilities. Nobody is suggesting that you quit your job, cash in your 401k and take a bus to New York, but you can have stability, creativity and passion at the same time. Keep your full-time job and figure out how to make money on the side with your creative talents. Right now it might seem like you don’t have time for such a thing, but when you are doing what you love, time has a way of flying by. Getting up an hour earlier everyday or devoting a weekend or two a month to your side-hustle is not so painful. Ask a store (or even a salon) in your neighborhood to stock your baked goods for a month trial period. You’d be surprised at how willing your fellow entrepreneurs are to help you. Why not have flyers about your make-up services at the local bridal shop or at the home of a seamstress who works with her clients from her living room? One of the most important skills necessary to become a successful freelancer is the ability to reach your target audience/client.
