How to maintain your side hustle and keep your full time job

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten - Tony Robbins

It could be the fact that you need the extra cash - let’s face it, the living standard in Kenya is on a constant rise – or it could be because you really want to work your passion projects.

Your regular 9-5 already takes up most of your day but there is always room to grow and build something extra on the side for future purposes.

Yes, it’s going to be a lot of work and extra pressure on you but there are ways to maintain your side hustle and keep your full time job.

Maximize on your spare time

If you have a one hour break, you can use half of it to take a breather and eat then use the other half to check on your side business.

When you get home after a long day at work, spare an hour or two to plan for the development of your side business.

Get someone to hold you accountable

Accountability is key in any business and it shouldn’t be an exception when it comes to your side hustle. Just because you’re the boss doesn’t mean, you shouldn’t treat your side hustle like your 9-5 job.

Treat it with the level of professionalism you do your full time job.

Plan! Plan! Plan

Have a routine and make sure you stick to it. Time management is of the utmost importance if you want to balance your side hustle while still keeping your full time job.

Be realistic

Yes, you want to work your butt off to make sure your future is secured but at the same time you also need to consider that building that great future you envision is going to take some time so be patient.
