3 Key Takeaways
1. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things to find the right side hustle for you
Celeste’s success as a LinkedIn Mentor and Mindset coach didn’t happen overnight. Before finding her right side hustle, she worked in retail, travel, banking, marketing, in a medical center, and in mental health community services. She is without a doubt not afraid to experiment and try different things. This has given her a bigger perspective, has enabled her to related to people’s struggles on a deeper level, and so much more – which ultimately has helped her become a better mentor
2. Be values-driven
Celeste’s growth from 0 to 17,000 followers on LinkedIn in just one year is no fluke. She has been hosting at least one Zoom networking meeting a week for the past 5 months while providing coaching and mentoring sessions at the same time. It’s a lot of work, but she’s guided by truly being grateful for having the opportunity to help others, while authentically wanting to see them succeed.
3. Surround yourself with others that support you
If you have a people’s first business or are in the compassionate industry, surrounding yourself with people who support your ventures is extremely important. Our energy is a finite resource, and every mentoring or coaching session requires our full attention. Don’t waste your energy on those who don’t resonate with your message, rather focus on those who do resonate with it and are willing to listen.
#1 Tip For the Side Hustle Activator Community
As a mentor, your message won’t resonate with everyone. Don’t focus on those who are not resonating with it, it’s wasted energy.
