What is a side project you’re currently working on?
A side project doesn’t necessarily have to be a side business. A side project can be….
- …for fun.
- …..for profit.
- …….for learning something new.
- ………for scratching your own curiosity.
Example 1.) My buddy Noah bought a Chrome Extension called Leoh.io and started improving on it. It currently makes no money, but it’s just a small side project for fun:
Example 2.) My buddy JR is doing a side project called “Nom Dudes” where he creates videos about food and posts them to Facebook. It’s not his main thing, but he loves making videos, so he’s trying it out on the side and seeing what happens:
Example 3.) One of my current side projects is busking in San Francisco. I’m hanging out in San Francisco for all of August, and the place I rented is next door to the San Francisco City Hall building, and San Francisco Opera building…..a seemingly appropriate place to practice music:
I bought this craptastic battery operated guitar amp and am going out by myself to busk:
So my side project for the month is coming up with a solid 6-song set list I can play/sing on the side of the road with a guitar.
I’ve done this many times with other people, but going by myself scares me a bit for some reason. In fact just last weekend me and my brother setup on the side of the road and jammed for fun!
Like I said, a side project can be a useful tool teach you something new, get out of a funk, or get the creative juices flowing!
