Top Side Hustles in Kenya: It is said that you can never get as rich as the business owner you work for. Nonetheless, raising capital for a future business while under employment is much easier than starting from the scratch. Before you take the ump from employment to business, it is important to always remember that a bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Before you quit your job, start a business, grow it, and only take the jump once the sidehustle’s proceeds are adequate to keep you on your feet. The big question is; which side hustles should you consider?
According to entrepreneur and journalist TerryAnne Chebet, you should go a for a side hustle that allows you to still run your day job where you earn the majority of your income. “If the side hustle has no potential to grow, leave it. Don’t go for something that requires heavy capital investment either,” she says.
One of the side hustles that Ms. Chebet fronts targets creative writers who can do professional resume writing on the side. She says that at one point while looking for a job, she contracted a professional CV writer at Sh. 5,000. “He did such an incredible job. There was no way I could have done the CV the way he did it,” she says.
Ms. Chebet also highlighted the buying of things in bulk and supplying in retail. “This could be anything from ndengu to beans, and it involves offering convenience in your residential area,” she says.
Some of the other side hustles she highlighted included baking (focus on things households use on a dairy basis), selling food in offices, workshops in your area of expertise (for example online training on how to invest), renting out spare rooms in your house (airbnb).
