With 57 million U.S. workers participating in the gig economy, it’s no secret that many professionals use their skills outside of the office. Side projects provide employees with opportunities to learn new skills, perfect current ones, and explore other industries. Plus, they can be a source of entertainment, a passion project, or a means for additional income.
When it comes to professional choices, people at all stages will inevitably ponder whether their first priority should be salary or career satisfaction. Fortunately, in our society we are able to consider this choice at all, but the perceived idea that we can only have one or the other can lead to anxiety in our jobs and dissatisfaction with our chosen paths. The popular narrative says that if you only care about money, you can’t pursue your passions, and vice versa. But the truth is, you can strive for a balance of both, if you desire.
