When is the right time to take your side-hustle full-time? (Sidegig 2.7)

And on today’s episode of Sidegig, we ask a really tough question: when is the right moment to take your side-hustle full-time?

While not everyone with a side-hustle aspires to quit their day job, plenty of people can’t wait until that perfect moment to give their 2-week notice and start working for themselves.

The only problem: identifying that perfect moment.

Today’s conversation with the guys should help—we explore a few important considerations you should think through before up-and-quitting. Plus a few signs you’ve been waiting too long to start working for yourself. It’s one of our most interesting conversations yet and I’m sure you’re going to love it.

Season 2 of Sidegig is sponsored by FindSideGigs.com: 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 millo.co/findsidegigs and subscribe to their free weekly gig lists to get started!

As you’ll hear in today’s episode, we have some very strong feelings about when the right time is to leave your job.

It all depends on what your safety net (or financial runway) looks like, what other obligations you might have (single with no mortgage vs. a family with a house and car payment), and lots more.

We also spend some time asking the question: when is the wrong time to quit your job and start working full-time on your side-hustle. It gets us into some really interesting conversations which we’d love to hear your thoughts on too.
