Welcome to seventh episode of the Career Crowd Podcast where we have a special multi-guest “Stand Out from the Crowd” interview with John, Nick and Matt, who make up The3Engineers. We talk to the guys about the topic of the side hustle, their project, and advice gained from writing children’s books on the environment, while also holding down full-time jobs as engineers and full-life roles such as being a dad or an adventurer or both.
So, the side hustle can mean different things, but broadly it could be paid work or volunteering, or a passion project, that occurs alongside not only your main job but other personal commitments and obligations. It might be freelancing, it might be dedicating your time and skills to a particular cause or movement that you care about, it might be learning a new skill, and it could even be starting a podcast with your friends to talk about side hustles…basically, you define what a side hustle is to you and put your effort, your time, and yes, sometimes even your own money, into it.
The guys share some of their personal experience in the challenges and rewards that have come from their side hustle, how they have evaluated the success of their project, and what’s next on their journey of inspiration and education. We also have another Career Fear segment lined up which will be focused on the fear of starting something new, and how you might be able to push through the self-doubt and the status quo to turn your next great idea into a reality, putting that vision into motion, or those first words onto the page.
