Your spirit animal: An owl.

Your Side-Hustle Eureka! moment: What if you had the phone of a missing girl?
The first thing you did to make your Side-Hustle happen: Bought the URL and told lots of people, to gauge their reaction.
Initial pitfalls when you started your Side-Hustle: Finding time to sleep in between the day job and the hustle.
The biggest lesson you’ve taken away from starting your Side-Hustle: Don’t be afraid to talk about your idea with other people. Nobody is going to steal it.
Describe the first moment you thought, “Wow, this has actually turned from a dream into reality!” When Apple approved our app for the first time. It was a great feeling seeing it on the AppStore and then rise the charts.

Advice you’d give your past-self starting a Side-Hustle: Stop thinking about it and do it sooner.
