If you think the first steps to starting your side-business include building a website, printing business cards, or getting a shiny new logo, we’ve got news for you—you’re dead wrong.
We explain why in our most recent episode of our podcast, Sidegig.
Here’s a hint: really successful side-hustles start with an extremely clear vision of what you want your business and your life to look like down the road.
And while there will be lots of short-term changes that will happen along the way, keeping your eye on the horizon of long-term vision can be a complete game changer.
That is, as long as your long-term vision doesn’t keep you from taking action today.
We dig into all of this and more in today’s episode—it’s a great one you’ll definitely want to catch.
