Everything You Need to Finally Start Your Side Project
Side projects can be some of the most inspiring and exciting work you do. They can help you test out a startup or business idea in a lower-investment way; they can allow to pursue one of your many passions without having to dedicate your life to it; they can help you learn new skills or refine on old ones; they can help you make extra money on the side; they can help you give back. There are so many ways spending time working on something you’re passionate about outside of your 9-to-5 can be rewarding.
But we’re not going to lie: They’re hard work. So we created this class to help you get past the first (and biggest) barrier—just getting started.
In this three-day, email-based class, career experts from The Muse and Squarespace will walk you through the steps needed to hone in on your idea, build a site where you can bring it all together, and start sharing it with the world.
