How do I avoid burnout when building a side-hustle? (Sidegig 2.6)

When you’re basically working two jobs (hustling on your side-business and working at a day job) it can be really easy to burnout.

Not to mention, working on your business can often compete with family time, volunteer obligations, and other hobbies which can leave you feeling like there are never enough hours in the day.

That’s why today’s episode of SideGig is all about identifying, avoiding, and overcoming burnout when building your side-hustle.

Season 2 of Sidegig is sponsored by a free lead generation service for freelancers and those looking to earn some extra income. To take your sidegig to the next level with FindSideGigs, visit and subscribe to their free weekly gig lists to get started!

As you’ll hear in the episode below, we go really deep on our own personal experiences with burnout: when we’ve experienced it, how we’ve handled it, and some common warning signs.

We discuss how to outsource in order to lighten your own workload, when to say “no” (and to whom), and some specific tactics you can use to avoid burnout or overcome it if you find yourself in the middle of it.
