3. What is the future trend of sideline business?
Simply put, the reason why we are engaged in sideline business is because the sideline business can fully realize our value. This value mainly includes personal value and social value.
To put it bluntly, personal value means that a sideline can fully realize one’s dreams and give full play to one’s abilities, thereby bringing a sense of satisfaction to our lives, and this sense of satisfaction is definitely not measurable by money.
The social value embodied by the sideline may make it even more precious. At present, the purpose of many people engaged in sideline business is to give back and serve the society.
The author believes that the boundary between the main business and the side business is gradually becoming blurred. The side business can not only fully realize the personal value, but also make changes to the social environment. Therefore, the side business will be everywhere in the near future.
