I am a big fan of surrounding yourself with others who are doing the thing you want to do. I encourage side hustlers to find other side hustlers to chat with because we get what you are going through in ways full-time entrepreneurs don’t quite understand.
If you’re not able to find that squad of people, you can create that type of community. I hadn’t really considered building a community around my blog before but the idea of doing a challenge (#5) and spotlighting readers (#7) sound like fun things to do.
“You need to build your readers up, serve them, pay attention to them, make them feel noticed, and do whatever you can to make them feel like they belong.”
