WILL FREELANCE WORK TAKE OVER THE WORLD? How to Start Your Side Hustle
TOOLS Every business needs marketing and sales to grow. Your side hustle is no different. It takes an active focus on best practices to find not just any client, but the right client. While sites like Fiverr, Upwork, and TaskRabbit can provide excellent avenues for you to contract work, you need to establish a client base of your own in order to be an effective freelancer. The only way to do this is by promoting yourself using marketing tools like social media, email, mailers, event promotions, and postings. PASSION There will be times when your freelance work feels like more than you can handle. When that happens, only your passion will get you through. Don’t take work you aren’t especially excited about. A side hustle can be used mainly for monetary gain, but according to the same study by the Freelancers Union, 63 percent of independent workers take on jobs by choice, not necessity. Freelance work is not just for creative types. Studies boldy predict that a majority of workers will freelance by 2027. With these three tips, you’ll have a solid foundation for becoming a part of the movement.
The “gig economy” has slowly been gaining prominence among American workers.

It’s important to block out defined hours specifically for working on your side gigs and keep those consistent. Many independent workers who have children or are involved in active social groups can find it challenging to prioritize freelance work. Try treating your personal projects like your job. When you arrive home, approach your freelance work as if it is your business — because it is.
