Do You Just Have a Really Expensive Hobby?
Show Notes

“There’s a difference between being good at a hobby and being passionate about something, and running a BUSINESS.”

- CJ

Are you running a side-biz… or do you just have a really expensive hobby?

Maybe you had a great biz idea or took an online course that sparked a new passion, and you tried to turn it into a revenue stream. When you discover something that you’re REALLY good at, it’s only natural you’ll think about turning it into a business.  

But many biz ideas are abandoned just as quickly as they’re started. 

Why? Because they don’t deliver REAL RESULTS… and there’s a reason for that! Just because you can do something really well, that doesn’t mean you can turn it into a successful business. If you want to make the shift to entrepreneur and turn your side gig into your only gig, you have GOT to have a PLAN!

In this episode of The Shine to FIVE™ Method with CJ, you’ll discover: 

  • The top 3 questions I ask biz owners trying to leave the 9to5 WITHOUT a business plan
  • What you need to think about if you want to build a successful side-biz that fits into your lifestyle
  • Exactly what having a proper business plan will help you do!
