MBA2051 How Much Time You Should Dedicate to Your Side Hustle

Starting a business while holding down a 9-to-5? 

It’s one of the smartest ways to get started. That said, it’s not the easiest. To actually make progress, you’ll need to give up significant amounts of free time.

It’s one thing to “start a business.” It’s quite another to start and grow a business until it reaches true escape velocity (that’s the part where you can quit your day job). Until then, it’s not just about how much time you put in, but how frequently and efficiently you use that time.

Today, we share how many hours you’ll have to set aside, how often, and how to make that time count for all it’s worth. Omar would know — he side-hustled for years while working full-time as a teacher.
