8 great guides to launching creative side hustles for fun and profit
One of the things we’re always asking on the Better Humans and its parent Coach.me team is “To what end?” That is, we’re always questioning the pursuit of concepts like personal growth, self-development, and productivity.
It troubles us when we notice people working so hard on these goals that they lose sight of what really matters to them. For example, if you’re a famous business success but you can’t find any happiness in your personal relationships, that’s a big problem. We don’t want any part of it. Why do people try so hard to emulate that?
Happiness in your work is one of those “to what end?” questions. Sometimes you need to do a job simply to earn money. That’s okay. But if it makes you miserable, we want to support you to move out of that and into something better.

So here are some of our favorites guides for getting started with work that might be more interesting, and even joyful. (You’ll notice that a lot of these involve using your creativity. We don’t think that’s a coincidence!)
