If you’re looking to make some extra income, or want to start a fulfilling job where you can make friends, earn money, and give back to nonprofits you care about, it may be time to look into starting a side hustle with ONEHOPE. You may be thinking to yourself, “that sounds great and all, but how will I find the time to launch a wine business?” While it may seem overwhelming to fit a new career into your already hectic schedule, we promise you there’s a way! Here are some tips to get you started.
Skip an hour of TV/social media– swap out TV time and watch a training video from ONEHOPE instead. Have a habit of scrolling through Facebook or Instagram for an hour? Use that time wisely and post about your new business on social media!
Take advantage of your days off– while the weekends are a great time to kick-back and relax, they are also the optimal time to fit your side hustle into your busy schedule! Use your free time to focus on booking events, networking, or hosting tastings with friends and family. Tastings typically take about 1-2 hours of your time and are a great way to be social and promote your business on the weekend!
Rethink your commute- whether you’re driving the kids to and from school, or have a 30+ commute to work, you can use that time to your advantage! Make a few business calls, dial in to one of our training calls, or listen to your favorite side hustle/entrepreneurial podcast that will help keep you goal oriented!
Become a multitasking master– turn everyday tasks into productive activities! Heading to the gym? Answer emails while you’re on the stairmaster! Cooking dinner? Bring in your laptop and watch training videos! At your kid’s soccer practice? This is a great place to connect with potential new hosts and share the ONEHOPE mission!
Create a set schedule- carve out a few minutes of each day that is dedicated to your side hustle. Whether it’s in the morning before work, during lunch, or after dinner, creating a schedule helps you stick to your goals. Add reminders to your calendar and create a list of tasks you want to get done each day. Check them off as you go and reward yourself for your accomplishments!
At the end of the day, you get out of your new business is what you put into it. You will naturally find a rhythm and balance that works best for your lifestyle. See how other Cause Entrepreneurs worked their businesses into their schedules here.
