How to avoid the biggest mistakes people make when starting their side hustle

Susie Moore is a career coach and the author of “What If It Does Work Out?“. In this video, she explains the biggest mistakes people make with their side hustle. The following is a transcript of the video.

There are a couple of mistakes. The most important one is they don’t begin.

I have so many people come to me, all ages, all stages of their life, and they say, “Oh I’ve got this idea. I’ve got this idea for a business.” And, sometimes I listen as a coach, that’s why people hire me to execute. Now I’ll often say, “Well, once you have something workable, almost like an MPV, talk to me.”

Because almost like 99% of people will be stuck in that phase of never getting started. Inaction, it’s crippling. It’s like taking a weakening drug. When you don’t take action on something that inspires you when you feel called to it.

So the biggest mistake is people who never begin. They have an idea, they talk about it forever, it gets boring to them even. You know, over time.

The most important thing to do is to get started. And the second is just to have clarity in terms of knowing what you’re good at, knowing that you’re going to enjoy doing it over time, and really just understanding that there’s a market for what you want, and being confident in knowing you can take a piece of that market.
