5 Tips to Start a Side Hustle in Zimbabwe


If you ask me, the best way to make money is by doing what you want to do. That’s why I started my handmade soap business two years ago. And while it hasn’t been easy—I don’t get paid all the time and there are some days when I’m totally exhausted—it’s been worth it because it gives me flexibility and freedom. So if you’re looking for ways to earn extra cash, why not try starting a side hustle? Here are five tips for starting a side hustle in Zimbabwe:

Don’t overthink it.

The first step to starting a side hustle is to not get too caught up in the details. You don’t need everything figured out right away, and you don’t have to have all your ducks in a row before you start working on it.

So what does this mean for you? Well, if your idea for a side business isn’t fully formed yet, that’s ok! You can start small with just an idea or two–or even just one small task–and then gradually build upon those ideas as time goes on. For example: maybe the first thing you want to do is find some new clients who would be interested in hiring someone like yourself (this could be through networking events or putting up flyers around town). Or maybe instead of having all these grand plans right away, all it takes is putting together an ad online somewhere like Facebook Marketplace where people could find out about how they could hire someone like yourself (and then go from there). Either way works! And no matter which option(s) might work best at first glance (or second glance), remember never underestimate how much work goes into building something successful–even if it seems easy at first glance!

Do your research.

  • Do your research.
  • Research the market, your competitors and customers.
  • Research your business model to make sure it’s viable.
  • Research branding and marketing strategies that will help you stand out from the crowd

Start small, but start now.

You don’t have to come up with the next billion dollar idea to start a side hustle. You can start small and build from there, even if it’s just a few hours of work per week.

Think about what you’re good at and what you enjoy doing. Then look around for ways that you can use those skills in your free time, whether it’s offering your services as a dog walker or babysitting on weekends. If you’re not sure where to begin, look at sites like Fiverr or Freelancer where people post their services for others who want them done–and pay them accordingly!

Look for ways to improve your business.

Ask for feedback from your customers, and make sure you’re always learning and improving.

Set aside time for your side hustle.

The first step to starting a side hustle is to set aside time for your side hustle.

Don’t try to do other things while working on your side hustle, like watch TV or play games on your phone. The main reason why people fail at starting a new business is because they try to do both jobs at once, which leads them to lose focus and not get anything done!

The best way I’ve found that works for me is by having dedicated hours in my day where I spend all of my energy doing whatever it takes for my business (whether it be posting ads online or writing emails). While this may seem counterintuitive at first glance (and it’s definitely not easy), this practice has allowed me stay focused and motivated throughout each day without getting distracted by other interests like social media sites and Netflix binges–which ultimately helps keep costs low too!

Side hustles aren’t meant to be easy, but they can be worth it!

The key is not to get discouraged if you don’t see immediate results. It takes time for any side hustle to grow into something bigger than yourself. When you’re first starting out, it may feel like all of your energy is going into just keeping things afloat while your business grows slowly around the edges. But once those roots take hold and start growing deeper into the ground, soon enough they’ll be strong enough that even storms won’t knock them down!

It’s important that you set aside time each week specifically dedicated towards working on this new project of yours (and don’t forget: weekends count too!). If nothing else, make sure that every night before bedtime there is at least one thing from the previous day’s list left undone or incomplete so that when we wake up tomorrow morning everything else can fall into place seamlessly without us even needing think about it too much beforehand–because let’s face facts here: no one wants anything less than total control over their lives…right?


So, what are you waiting for? Start a side hustle! Just remember that it’s not going to be easy. But if you keep at it and find ways to improve your business, then eventually it will pay off.
