Side Businesses


I’ve always believed in having side businesses. That’s because it can be a great way to boost your earnings and improve your financial stability. It can also give you the opportunity to pursue your hobbies and share your passions with the world.

If you’re interested in opening a side business, it’s definitely worth exploring your options. Here are a few reasons why it might be worth giving it a go:

  • Financial security: A side business can provide an additional source of income. This can be especially helpful if you’re looking to save for a big purchase or goal.
  • Pursuing your passions: A side business can allow you to pursue something you’re passionate about. This can be incredibly fulfilling and can help you feel more satisfied with your work.
  • Learning new skills: Starting and running a side business can help you learn new skills and gain valuable experience. This can be beneficial for your personal and professional growth.
  • Networking: A side business can provide opportunities to meet and connect with new people. This can help you expand your network and potentially open up new opportunities.
  • Flexibility: A side business can provide flexibility in terms of when and where you work. This can be helpful if you have other commitments or if you’re looking for a better work-life balance.

As you can see, having a side business can provide many benefits, including financial security, the ability to pursue your passions, the opportunity to learn new skills, networking opportunities, and flexibility.

As part of my work on the Kent Percent site, I’ll be taking a close look at the personal benefits of running your own company. I’ll also be sharing my thoughts on which types of side businesses are worth pursing, and the skills needed to run them successfully. I hope you find the information here helpful and look forward to reading your feedback in the comments!
