Make Money on the Side as an Exercise Class Instructor – Side Jam Interview #4
Welcome to the next Side Jam Interview!
During our past few interviews, we’ve focused on ways to make money online, in the digital arena. And while there are endless possibilities for online side hustles, today I’d like to focus on another way to benefit from an existing skill set.
I had the pleasure to meet with Cheryl, who works in the corporate world by day, but then also teaches exercise class in her spare time.
When I had originally asked her to participate in the Side Jam interview series, she was surprised I considered her exercise classes to be a side hustle. She just thought it was something she enjoyed doing, and it was a bonus that she could earn a few bucks by sharing her passion with others.
But that’s the point I’d love to convey through this interview series —
It doesn’t have to be this elaborate plan to create an online business, or pay off a huge amount of debt, or get a process in place to eventually replace your day job.
I mean, all of those things are fantastic goals to have, and having a plan will make success all the more attainable.
But there are things you might not even think about — things you do every day — that can be a side hustle.
It doesn’t have to make you a millionaire. And you might just love it so much you’d do it for free regardless.
I just think it’s important for everyone to realize they have talents. And you can choose to use these talents to your advantage, in any number of ways. Whether it’s by volunteering, mentoring, encouraging, or teaching.
And yes, dancing to 80’s music can, in fact, be a Side Jam!
