Leveraging a 6 to 11 Side Hustle to Pursue Your Passion

side hustleSure, we all have a 9-to-5, but what about a 6-11 side hustle? You might be thinking, “what in the world is this guy talking about??” Let me explain.

The concept of a 6-11 is based on the growing trend of twin-track career paths. Simply put, you work a “real” job while earning income doing something aligned closer to your passions.

This is commonly referred to as a side gig, or side hustle.

Take the Quiz!

Check out this fun interactive quiz from digital design and print powerhouse MOO engineered specifically to inspire people to discover their true passions AND help turn it into the job of their dreams.

Leveraging some seriously compelling data points from Wakefield Research and an interactive quiz, MOO has found there’s a major twin-track career phenomenon. In short, everyone (not just millennials) is on that side hustle tip.

The Data

Data from Wakefield Research for MOO

  • Nearly 3 in 4 people in a 9-to-5 job (74%) are unfulfilled by their current job

  • 44% of people consider starting a side business now than 2 years ago

  • Almost 2 out of 3 millennials are anxious to follow their entrepreneurial instinct and start their own business

  • 90% feel that having a fulfilling job is one of the biggest factors in determining someone’s overall happiness

MOO is out to empower more people to take that first step, just like their “6-11 ambassadors,” founders of The Muse and Pintrill, who created their dream jobs while balancing a full time career, and are even offering the chance to win a full suite of branded materials to turn their dreams into a professional reality.
