AUTHOR’S PICK: Start a UK Online Business Alongside Your Day Job

Time for another Author’s Pick weekend! I hope you’re having fun. Work can sometimes be stressful, whether it’s your day job or your UK online business. So it pays to unwind every now and then.

Speaking of which, having a day job and a business is not an either/or situation. What if I told you that you can do both? Sounds incredible? Well, in case you missed it, you certainly can start a business alongside your regular job.

UK online business ideas day job

In fact, it’s a good idea to start a UK online business on the side while you’re still employed. More so if you’re still single and still new in your career. At this point, you have less to think about, and more time to do the things you want to do. So go ahead and include “start my own business” in your bucket list.

“How do I do that?” It isn’t complicated, really. Read on to find out.


1.  Don’t quit your day job!

Some advice we hear or read about would tell you to jump ship as the first step. They say to quit your day job and focus all of your time and effort to start a UK online business.

Big, big mistake.

Why? Because your day job is your safety net. It gives you the money you need to feed yourself, pay the bills, and get you moving every day. Without that steady source of income, how do you expect to live? You haven’t even made the first sale in your business yet!


2.  Learn as much as you can

Whether you know a lot about the field of business you’re entering or not, it’s very important to study it and learn it as much as you can. Knowing how fast information flows these days, you never know when the latest developments will come in. If you want to start a UK online business, educate yourself first.

Also, do yourself a favour and learn about yourself as well. Evaluate your skills and talents, and know what you’re good at. This will help you find the best business idea that fits you.
