I talk a lot about hustling, why I think it’s important every woman has a side hustle, how a side hustle can bring in extra income and set one up for self employment, should you so desire. But, there’s gotta be a commitment to the side hustle if the end game is about financial and career freedom. Because ultimately, that’s what I want.
So, it’s time for me to stop playing small and set my intentions. I really need to set myself up for the success I only see on my vision board. I need to plan, strategize and execute as if 2019 is the only year I’m given this opportunity. I need to go to bed every night with a goal in mind for the next day. And wake up every morning executing that goal.
Yes, I need to finish some websites. Yes, I need to clear, clean and organize the hell out my stuff and life. But more importantly, I need set my intentions towards the life I know I want to lead.
I believe I’m ready to make that commitment to myself. How ’bout you?
I was on the bus yesterday morning headed to work and a man got on the bus through one of the back doors with a wagon full of essential oils. He was selling them as an alternative to perfume and other fragrance options. He said a general hello to the rest of the passengers on the bus then sat down. I got off before he did, so I never knew where he was going, but it didn’t matter. He was already at work.
He was hustlin’. And for us who are consistent with the hustle, we know it never quits. We may say we’re gonna have a little side hustle after work and on our off hours, but we get the hustle in whenever we can. Nighttime, daytime, anytime, we are hustlin’!
I don’t know if I’ll ever find myself selling oils or whatever else can be transported in some tote or wagon, but sometimes we gotta step outside what seems normal to earn a little extra money. And we gotta work when the opportunity presents itself. Think of the people at the promenades. Whether they’re pretending to be still as a statue, move robotically or perform magic tricks, they’re all working out side our normal comfort zones. And doing it during prime hours.
Hustlers are different. We’re not like everyone else. Because deep down, we don’t want what everyone else is willing to settle for. That’s why we hustle.
