Many people are have online side hustles next to their day job. The question people often ask Tony de Bree, who started with online entrepreneurship as online side hustle in 2001, how to choose the best online side hustle for them. In this blog, Tony gives you practical tips and tricks on how to do just that.

Hi. How are you doing? If you do a Google search right now for the best money-making side hustles online or offline, you’ll find articles that feature a few hundred different ideas. These posts are literally a minefield of ideas, but how does that relate to you? To your personal story and your dreams? How do you know which side hustle is going to be good for you? In this article, we’re going to answer that important question so you can be on your way to earning your first dollars, Euros or Pounds from your side hustle!

So, the first thing you need to do is to make a list of the things you’re passionate about. This includes your hobbies (yes, you can make some money by doing your hobbies!), skills and your interests.

Starting with hobbies is always a good idea because it means you can do these tasks without getting bored. Skills are also a good thing to include on the list because it’s something you know you can do easily. If you’ve got music skills, then you can think of ways to make some money off of music! Lastly, listing down your interests will help you further narrow down the things you want to do.

Ideally, what you want to do is to choose a side hustle that you’re passionate about (preferably a hobby), is relatively easy for you to do, and is something you’re deeply interested in.

Keeping yourself motivated while doing your side hustle is important because you’re basically working solo. If you let your motivation slide, then you’re going to fail at your side hustle. So, right from the get go, it’s best to choose something you’re going to like doing for a long, long time.

Many people have turned their side hustles into full-time careers and businesses including me. Making money online is still an important source of income for me in different ways. But it many cases it takes years, depending on the side hustle you chose. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. And you learn from your failures and mistakes.

Succeeding at your side hustle will mean developing an entrepreneur mindset. This means not being easily discouraged, and the ability to think outside the box. Entrepreneurs think big and they focus on their long-term vision. They don’t sweat the small stuff. And above all, they focus on getting paying customers and solving real problems.

If you want to turn your side hustle into a successful business venture someday, then focus on that goal. Do everything within your power to ensure your dreams come to fruition by focusing on paying customers and making a difference for your clients from day 1. There’s no better validation that you chose the right side hustle than by actually succeeding at it!
