Having clearly defined goals will assist you in determining the measures that must be taken in order to transform your hustle into a reality. Turning passion into career takes more than enjoying your doing what you love.

Commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream closer.
When Turning Passion Into Career Define Your Goals
Following the determination of your side hustle, validation of that idea, and determination of how you will differentiate yourself from the competition, it is necessary to outline your overall objectives. Having clearly defined goals will assist you in determining the measures that must be taken in order to transform your hustle into a reality.
A hobby can go beyond just being turned into a side hustle, it can be something bigger like full time business or career. When turning business into career it calls for more than what would for a side gig. Consider creating a list of objectives that are systematically followed by one another.
Creating an eBay account, for example, may be your first step if you plan on selling things on the site in the future. Your second objective may be to conduct market research on the products that sell the best on eBay. Your third objective may be to locate the products you intend to sell, and your fourth goal may be to list the products you have located and listed.
When setting your objectives, make certain that they are attainable. It is more important to gain traction than it is to achieve your end goal right away. Even while setting a goal of selling 1,000 bars of soap is a fantastic objective, there are probably a dozen lesser goals that must be accomplished before you can attain your ultimate goal.
Each goal should be attainable and practical in nature. Once again, if your goals aren’t realistic, you’ll find yourself becoming disheartened when you don’t achieve them. The more discouraged you become, the more likely it is that you will quit up on your side business.
So, what are some tiny objectives you can set for yourself that will help you gain traction in your hustle? All of these tiny goals should work together to help you achieve your major, overarching goal.
Is it necessary for you to…
- Have you done any market research?
- Find out what your ideal customer wants by conducting market research.
- Do you want to build a website?
- Send out an email to your mailing list informing them of your promotion?
Begin by taking modest measures that will eventually take you to your ultimate goal. Try to make daily, weekly, and monthly goals that will help you move forward in the right direction.
