Am new here. thanks for accepting me on this forum. I come from a developing nation in southern Africa, I'm humbled to among civilized people. I have a question though.
Back in 2015 I started a side hustle which worked very well but an opportunity for me to work somewhere else in a better position came, I had to stop the business, unfortunately it didn't work. I had used the capital I wouldn't go back to my side hustle.
Now I'm doing another job and I want to go fast lane. Now my question is can I start the same hustle? Will it work again? I no longer live in the area where I used to live before though but similar in nature with the new neighborhood I live in now.
Kindly advise me I'll be grateful to you. Thanks in advance.

Thanks so much. I'm launching out tomorrow I will keep you updated always as the journey goes
I have started the business and so far things are okay and fair. thanks for your advice and encouragements everyone who has taken there time to contribute on this thread. I'm just asking for help, I'm asking for recommended content to help me make more sales. The business involves interacting with almost each and every customer before they buy, so I've discovered I'd really use knowledgeable in the area of how to make sales. Thanks for your help in advance

You referred to this business as a side hustle. You also said you want to go fastlane. Can this business make you lots of money?

I'm guessing not. Sounds like it takes a lot of your time interacting and selling to each individual.

What is your overall goal here?

There's a plan and a vision to have people systems in the future. Besides that it's one of the side hustles I'm embarking on to achieve my goal of going fastlane

Hi @DelightRedeemed I am from South Africa & am currently busy getting my first customers for my SaaS startup. Wrt some comments made above, I want to share a read from Paul Graham (Founder of YC) Do Things that Don't Scale

Here he talks about doing things that don't scale when you first starting out. Depending on what your business is about I'm sure will help you nonetheless. I have been trying this & have actually found it is working for us.

Stay in touch.
