Moonlighting as an Entrepreneur While Building a Legacy

Updated: Jul 22, 2023

The way the economy is set up, it behooves you to have multiple streams of income. There is no such thing as job security anymore if there ever was. Nowadays, if you don't have more than one way to make money, you are fighting against inflation like a flat tire. Let's get this straight. It's not the responsibility of your employer or the government to be your savior or financial nest egg. Being a part-time entrepreneur can bring a level of freedom and happiness in life that many full-time jobs cannot offer. Not to mention additional income to play with. While some may see it as just having a side hustle, there are actually numerous benefits to being an entrepreneur part time.

Here are eight key benefits of being a part-time entrepreneur:

More Time for Hobbies and Self-Care

Mental health suffers for many because most lack the opportunity for self care. When you are not tied down to a nine-to-five job or twenty-four seven-hour business, you have more time to pursue your passions and take care of yourself. This extra time can significantly improve your overall well-being, whether it’s finally taking that painting class or simply getting more sleep. The fact is, the happier you are in all areas of your life, the more successful you will be.

Flexibility in Schedule

As a part-time entrepreneur, you can work when it fits best into your schedule and decide how much (or how little) to work. This allows for more balance between work and personal life, reducing stress and increasing productivity. Time is not your friend. When you spend more time working vs enjoying life, you miss out on so many things. We all need to work, but flexibility is a blessing in advance.

Variety in Workload

You can choose to take on projects that interest and excite you rather than feeling stuck in one specific job role. This can lead to feeling more inspired and motivated in your work. There are many entrepreneurial endeavors that give you the flexibility to be creative in many ways. No longer are you confined to a 9-5 doing the same boring job. Do what you love and get paid for your creativity. Check out this resource here to help build a profitable business while you work.

Higher-Income Potential

By taking on multiple streams of income from different sources, you have the potential to earn more money than if you were just at a traditional job. With the right tools and information, you'll be able to earn a full-time income in less time. Not only that, you will be able to reach your financial goals sooner vs later.

Freedom to Work from Anywhere

It's most people's dream to have life and work balance. With the rise of technology and remote work, being a part-time entrepreneur allows you the freedom to work from wherever you want, whether that be at home, on vacation, or even while traveling the world. You are the CEO of you. Work to live, don't live to work.

Feeling Fulfilled and Satisfied

By pursuing your passions and having control over your workload, you are likely to feel more fulfilled and satisfied in what you do as a part-time entrepreneur rather than just working for someone else’s dreams. You work all your life making your boss rich. Now it's time to put you first and make yourself rich by owning your own business. Also, only you can fire you.

More Opportunities for Growth and Learning

This can lead to personal growth, both professionally and personally. As an entrepreneur, you have the ability to promote from within and expand your horizon.

The Ability to Leave a Lasting Legacy

Being an entrepreneur means carving out your own path and creating something that can have a lasting impact, whether through a successful business or simply bringing joy and value to others’ lives. You can will a business, but you can't will a job. That right there is more than enough reason to start something, build it and create opportunity for your kids and their kids. Make it a generational endeavor.

Overall, being an entrepreneur part time can bring immense and satisfying benefits in terms of time, flexibility, income potential, satisfaction, and freedom in life. While it may sound impossible right now, it is attainable with the right business idea, mindset, and effort. I recommend you sit down a imagine what you would do if you could without hesitation and get paid for it along the way. Once you have that idea, seek ways to make a solid income doing it. Hire a life coach or a business coach to assist with accountability and direction. You owe it to yourself to earn your worth, own your time and build a generational gift that will live forever.
