Should you just give up on your side-hustle? (Sidegig 2.8)

What if you’ve been building your side-business for a while now and you’re just not seeing the traction you had hoped for?

Should you throw in the towel?


Give up?

That’s the discussion we get into on today’s episode of Sidegig—and it’s an eye-opening conversation for anyone who feels like they’re stuck in a rut with their business.

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 (and here’s a big spoiler) none of us actually want you to quit your side-hustle. None of us think it’s a good idea to just give up.

So what do we recommend instead?

A pivot.

It’s a conversation you’ve really go to hear.
