Pro tip: Don’t quit your daydream.
We’re living in the age of side hustles, where companies from Instagram to Glossier to GitHub have evolved from personal projects to huge successes.
If you’re not familiar with the history of Product Hunt, we also got our start this way. 😏
We rounded up some interesting resources to pull from if you’re hustlin’ on the nights and weekends:
💌 Sidemail launched earlier this week as a cheaper alternative to multiple G Suite accounts, so you can manage email for your side projects with unlimited inboxes.
🤔 If you're stuck on your next great idea, use The Side Project Scoring Tool to evaluate and choose the right pursuit.
🙌 IndieHackers is a website and community focusing on helping entrepreneurs become profitable while remaining independent.
💰If you're looking to put your side project up for sale, Transferlot is a curated marketplace where founders can easily buy and sell.
👋 MakerWidget is particularly helpful when you're first getting going. You can embed a widget of yourself on your project pages so visitors can see who you are, where to find you and what you did before.
💻 newCo is a community and bootcamp to build a product without a writing a line of code.
Are you working on a side project? Join us on Makers, a place to share what you’re working on and get support from other friendly folks in the Product Hunt community. We’re announcing something big later this month. 😉
