19. For the Side Hustler
Do you know someone who works full-time, takes care of their family and wants to write?
They have an unfinished novel, or they just want something different from the 9-5 job that fulfills their passion for writing. Well, a side-hustle can help them achieve this and more.
This means moonlighting as a writer and finding pockets of time to write. Before my twins started school, I used my Fitbit’s vibrating alarm to wake me up quietly – and not the rest of my house – to start my side hustle as a freelance writer.
If your partner doesn’t mind waking up early (before work), then this sunrise alarm clock would be great for both of you.
