Do you enjoy the security of a steady stream of income but also want to express your creativity as a Reiki healer? Then you may want to consider becoming a part-time entrepreneur.
The trend of being a “side hustler” is on the rise, especially for millennial women. Many are pursuing the life coaching path in hopes of following the footsteps of Marie Forleo, Gabby Bernstein and other empowering thought leaders. The holistic health and spiritual wellness industry is booming as more individuals across all generations are paying attention to mind, body and spiritual wellness.
Become a part-time Reiki healer may be the ideal path for some lightworkers. How do you determine if you’re better off being a side hustler while keeping your desk job, either full-time or part-time?
Having been both a full-time and part-time Reiki entrepreneur in the past, I’ve observed the following pros and cons over the years. Here are some key points to consider about being a part-time Reiki entrepreneur.
Being diversified helps to reduce risks of the business. Studies have shown that people who engage in a venture part-time are less likely to fail than people who quit their 9-5 and pursue a startup full time. The steady stream of income from working at your office job, either part-time or full-time, allows you to take entrepreneurial risks that suits your risk tolerance.
Many healers, lightworkers, and spiritual seekers are empaths or highly sensitive people. Their risk tolerance threshold may not be ideal for a volatile entrepreneur journey. Thus, going part-time allows them the time to experiment and see if something works.
With limited time, there is an increased likelihood of burning out from spreading yourself out too thin. Even if you truly enjoy your side hustle, there is always that fine line of going overboard when there are only so many hours in the day available.
Also, if and when the business starts to take off, more hours may be required to build on the momentum. There may also be a point to consider whether it’s better to become a full-time entrepreneur…which may not be such a bad thing for some!
