On Design Life we like to talk openly about money when we can, including our annual income reports! This time it's Charli's turn.
Recording your income year on year gives you the chance to reflect on the growth, or possible decline, over 12 months and consider how best to spend your time in the future in order to reach your goals.
Writing is a potentially untapped market for designers when it comes to creating side hustle income. If you know your craft, there might be scope for you to write about it.
Mentoring was an area of growth for Charli over the last 12 months. Learning what areas in the industry designers are struggling with can help you to develop other content that solves the same problems.
In this episode we chat about how what works for one person as a side hustle, our job boards for example, might be a slow burner for someone else! And that outside factors, such as the current hiring freeze and time of year, can also contribute to growth or decline.
