Why I don't believe in side hustling

Recently I read an article in Entrepreneur magazine about why the term "side hustler" is not really as admirable as you may think.

For a long time I've felt this way too.  The word "hustler" always brought up so many negative feelings and imagery.

Building a business takes real courage, and yes hard work, but it shouldn't feel like a hustle.

Let me break it down why I'm not a believer in side hustling:

1) When you think of yourself as a "side hustler" and tell people...this is my side hustle...it doesn't feel like a real business.

If you want people to take you seriously, stop calling yourself a side hustler.

When you're building a business, even while you're still working in your current career, you are an Entrepreneur.  Period.

People want to do business with people who are all-in when it comes to their business.  This doesn't mean that you're starting out working the business full-time, but it means that you take your business seriously, and put in the...

Top 7 Entrepreneurship Lessons of 2020

As we close out the end of 2020, one of the most memorable years on record, I'd like to reflect on some lessons learned.  Without a doubt, some of these lessons were not easy to take, but I hope you will find some value in them.  

Lesson #1:  You must have an income that you control.

This year, unlike any other, has made it so abundantly clear that anyone who only had one source of income was vulnerable.  Vulnerable to losing your income in the minute it took for you to take that call from your manager that you were being furloughed.  Vulnerable to losing the roof over your head.  Vulnerable to loosing everything.

When you have an income that you control, no one can take that away from you.  You get to create real financial security because you create and control what you make.

Lesson #2:  Adaptability is key to survival.
