This is why side projects are the best way for creating a good net worth!

In today’s fast-paced and competitive world, having a successful career is no longer limited to working on assigned tasks within the 9 to 5 work schedule.

Many successful professionals understand the value of pursuing side projects and using their spare time to pursue personal passions.

Side projects are independent initiatives that allow individuals to explore their creative side, enhance their skills, and pursue their interests outside of their primary job. They offer numerous benefits, such as providing opportunities for personal and professional growth, networking, and even generating income.

In this way, side projects have become an essential part of many people’s professional lives, allowing them to achieve a greater sense of fulfillment and success in both their personal and professional endeavors.

One of the most important questions in this field is: how can I manage my time? Well, I have co-built and co-sold 3 micro-saas, and now I’m managing 2 side businesses, and I always have a full-time job. Then how do I manage my time? What are the focuses? I’m going to give you some tips about this world!

How I manage my time

As mentioned in the introduction, I currently have my own full-time job. I’ve been working as a business analyst for a fintech since January 2022, and it was in 2022 that I sold 3 micro-saas.

This is the graph of my net worth in the last 16 months:

In the long term, it is easier to manage your assets. The hardest part is starting, as well as with your time. We all have 24 hours a day. You can’t have more. Unfortunately, it’s the only resource we can’t buy, but I’m sure we would buy that too if there was a chance (remember the movie In Time?)
