A book called The Leap Process: the side hustler’s guide to getting the life of your dreams and creating a life you love! by Jess Kuemmerlin uses the phrase “side hustle”.
- A side hustle isn’t meant to be your primary income.
- A side hustle is a freelance independent gig where no one else can pull the plug.
- You can have more than one side hustle.
- A side hustle is an asset and ought to be something you love.
A side hustle is that gap between where you are and achieving your dreams.
My primary income is from my transcription business. More on that in later posts, with an overview of the three women who are part of Kenna McKinnon & Associates.
My side hustle is my books.
What about you? Do you plan to retire to a tropical island and write your way to fame and the gold at the end of the writing rainbow?
My plan goes something like this:
Move to Penticton, British Columbia for two months during the brutalist time of the Edmonton winters.
Write on the beaches and stay in a cheap condo for rent during December and January.
Move back home for the temperate summers and my friends here.
