Tips for deciding if a side job is for you

Before choosing a side job, it is important to set your goals and expectations. Identify what you are good at and what areas you have experience in. Additionally, it can be useful to consider how much free time you have to dedicate to a side job, as well as how much money you want to make from it and what you want to do or buy with that money.

It is also important to consider the amount of time and energy you can devote to another activity, whether during the week or on the weekend, and think about how it could negatively affect your full-time job and other responsibilities.
