  • I failed at two businesses so this article was a good refresher on turning my ideas into a side business or even making money on the side especially online. What I learnt was that it's important to find passionate clients who want to pay you. Especially if you are a creative entrepreneur, freelancer or designer, it's better to look for demand before creating a product. It sounds simple but most people first make and then try to convince someone to buy. Read this before you start a business.
