With this checklist, you will know the nitty-gritty behind what goes into the making of a side-hustler and a creator.
Of course, each of these points can have an article of its own (and I’m working on compiling my existing articles around the creator economy and freelancing), but I’ve tried to add as many details as possible to give you clarity on the direction of your journey. These things personally helped me drastically.
And if you don’t know me...I’m Niharikaa! It’s so lovely to meet you :)
I quit my 9-5 in July 2021 and in December 2020 I wrote a goal to quit before I turn 25. I started side-hustling in November 2020 and am self-employed right now. I’ve been awarded the top-writer status 20 times on Medium across categories and joined Twitter in June 2021, where I’m growing dramatically.
My purpose is to help people live better lives, whether it’s by self-improvement articles (where everything I write about is tried and tested), ebooks, guides, or courses.
I hope you enjoy this and I’d love to hear from you once you finish it. Go on, crush it!

Choosing the right platform is important. I had to delete an account with over 11,000 Instagram followers because I wanted to write and not be too visual.
(beneficial if you also aspire to be a creator)
Feel free to break the tasks depending on your convenience. During my 9-5, I worked 1h before work and 1h after work. Right now, I edit in the morning, write in the afternoon or evening and write ideas before I sleep.

Pro tip: I publish 17-20 articles/ month on Medium, and schedule my tweets at 7-10 tweets/day for the week (takes an hour or two). This has helped me a lot so far!
