Develop a side hustle. Even if it doesn’t make any money yet, do something that utilizes your talents and lets you express yourself professionally. Plan and write out how this side hustle could potentially start making money, then start taking small steps to get there. You could do a lot of different things, but what is something you could be best in the world at?
Create a habit of working on it every day. You only have so much to gain by doing so.
Your day job satisfaction will grow. You will build valuable relationships. You will learn new skills that will help you do your day job better and, therefore, increase your earning potential. You will have more of a reason to wake up in the morning with a spring in your step.
