Do you have a side hustle? Does it connect to your IT career, or is it a departure from the tech world?

I have a side hustle in the development phase at the moment in the area of mens work. It’s hard to say that it is a departure from tech as I’m developing a platform and processes similar to my work but in a completely different field.

and I do a podcast and YouTube channel on being a Humane Leader. It’s a discussion on various topics that if a lot of people subscribed it would qualify as a side hustle. There is no money involved so I don’t think it technically qualifies as “side hustle “

I enjoy doing the podcast with Chris; I have learned a lot from him, and it's an awesome experience to provide our audience with everything our experience has gained from all these years. The Spotify link is:

I have a side hustle that I turned into a full ecommerce and retail in-store business (my fiancé now fully runs for us so I can do the day job) - totally different from the day job and I feel has made me more creative in my thinking as well as see different perspectives.  Bonus points for no councils or committees for me to go through.

Don't have a side hustle but am trying to learn more about stocks trading. It doesn't connect to IT career directly but can be.

Total departure - I collect, restore, and sell vintage cast-iron cookware but am having trouble letting go of a lot of pieces I really should just sell.

Having a side hustle can be a great way to explore other interests and diversify your skill set, whether it's connected to your IT career or a departure from the tech world. It ultimately depends on an individual's preferences and goals.

My personal experience. 

I usually get the feedback and go back with data driven analysis providing details to cross leaders to understand the context and make decision basis data and and not gut feeling.
