I love my job but wish I earned more, so starting a side hustle makes sense as a way to supplement my income. The problem? I haven’t been sure about what kind of business to start. Then, out of nowhere, a colleague today asked me to photograph her daughter’s wedding. Cost is a concern, so I am charging an hourly rate and then handing the photographs over to them. We are both thrilled! I don’t know that I’m necessarily going to start a side business as a wedding photographer, but booking my first gig for which I’ll get paid is an important first step, so just wanted to share
Well hot damn! Congrats on accidentally scoring your first gig. I’ve photographed a wedding or two as well - lots of work, but if the bride and groom are happy, it’s incredibly rewarding.
Congrats!! Making money doing something you enjoy is true success in my mind.
Woot woot! Congrats…side hustling is addictive!
