Q: On Instagram, you talk about your “day job”. Isn’t writing your full-time job?

Not yet, brother. Not. Yet.

I actually have a real person day job at the moment. In fact, I normally have a real person day job, a part-time job, and several side hustles.

Why? Because I hate being bored, and I’m fascinated by business in general. I know that’s not a sexy answer, but I really like knowing what businesses work, how they work, and how much money one can make with service and product based business.

As previously mentioned, I have several side hustles going at all times.

Side hustle – a side job; not a con

Me. You may proceed

I have an actual business (Pilgrim Fowl Press), teaching side job (Skillshare and Udemy), and I have a few more that I’m not ready to mention as they are in the pasta phase aka the testing phase.

So, that’s the long answer. No, writing is my full-time job. It might never be, because I like to play around with businesses, projects, and side hustles. The goal, however, is to make writing and my publishing company the main source of my income.

Let’s see what happens, shall we?

If you are a tinkerer as well, like to experiment with business, or have given your friends and family project fatigue with all of the ideas you have, you would be perfect for this group I’m forming of like minded side hustlers and experimenters.

Barbara Burgess is a writer which is made apparent by the text in this box and the box above. She is best known for being a multi-genre/multi-writing voice author who throws caution to the wind when describing her writing career - "Oh, I write children's books, holiday romance, and sci-fi. Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy. The only social media she frequents is Instagram (@hellothisisbarbara). Her desert island movie is Stargate (the original with James Spader), and she has been taking daily mug shots of her morning coffee since before Instagram was even a thing.
