I’ve been there: You hear the alarm go off at 6:00 a.m. You resist the urge to hit the snooze button, shower, and hit the road to drive to work. It seems every day is on autopilot- you get up, work a thankless 9-to-5 job, and come home too tired to do anything. For most of us, having a traditional 9-to-5 job is not what we envisioned.
From working 14 to 16 long hours to relying on a salary that never budges, there’s not much about a dull 9-to-5 that can keep you motivated. It’s no wonder over 68% of workers are disengaged and unhappy with their jobs. Here’s what I did: I quit my 9-to-5! I stopped relying on a lousy paycheck, started making 7-figures, and vacationed whenever I wanted.
And here’s the truth: anyone can achieve this!
Wondering how? Below I’ll reveal the secret recipe to starting your business while working your 9-to-5 without burning yourself out. I’ll also share the best way to seamlessly switch from a traditional job to your business. In this video, I’ll show you the steps I took, and you can take, to find financial freedom.

Step # 1: Finding Your Side Hustle
While most of us would love to wave goodbye to our day job, we may not be free to do so.
Before you can ditch your 9-to-5, you need something to fall back on- another consistent income stream. You need to have a backup that’s stable enough to support you financially.
And this starts with finding your side hustle!
Ideally, your side hustle should have the following:
- High-income potential
- Flexibility to allow you to continue your 9-5
- Ability to transition into a full-time business
But first, you need to evaluate your interests and needs. While searching for the perfect side hustle, I tried dropshipping, S.M.M., Amazon kindle publishing, and even affiliate marketing. However, none of these business ideas provided the necessary consistency and versatility.
That’s why I stuck with Amazon FBA.
What Do I Recommend?
Amazon FBA stood out because it offers unmatched flexibility and high potential income. Although it does require an initial investment, it’s 100% worth it!
For starters, Amazon does most of the work for you! Your goal is to find a high-quality product and a reliable supplier and ship all your products to Amazon’s warehouse. From there, the multi-national e-commerce brand takes care of your inventory packages, ships your products to buyers, and handles customer returns.
All you have to focus on is marketing your products to your target audience, something that’s easier considering Amazon’s massive customer base! The best part? You can simplify ranking high in Amazon’s algorithm and finding winning products using specialized tools like Helium 10 or Viral Launch!
P.S.I’ve got a discount code for those of you interested in Amazon FBA! You can use my coupon code “ZAB6M20” to get 20% off for six months or “THEZABTWINS10” for 10% off forever!
Step # 2: Always be a Student
Here’s the thing: you can’t transform into a professional overnight in your new side hustle.
Like anything, establishing your business in something you have no experience with takes time and effort. To overcome this problem, you need to become a student.
Start looking for a free course or follow professionals in your field of interest to pick new strategies and tips to succeed. Most importantly, never give up!
Step # 3: Launching Your Business
You’ve checked “finding my side hustle” off your checklist, so now it’s time to put your business idea into action!
No matter your side hustle, you’ll have to build an engaged customer base and start making sales. You can monetize or run ads if you’re starting a blog, YouTube channel, etc.
Step # 4: Scaling Your Business
Running your business is all about testing, hustling, and improvising. Keep testing new strategies to identify which ones bring positive results and what needs tweaking.
After a couple of months, analyze your cash flow to identify whether your side hustle brings positive results. Next, plan to scale your business, continue working consistently, and increase your profits so you can finally walk away from your 9-to-5!
The Bottom Line
Handling a side hustle with a full-time job can be overwhelming. But if you evaluate your interests and skillsets and find something that works for you, you’ll find it easier to face every challenge head-on!
Take control of your life today by learning how to plan and execute business ideas strategically. Ensure you make consistency a habit and spend your free hours to create enough value in your business so that the money you earn is higher than your paycheck.
That’s when you’ll feel happy and satisfied to say goodbye to your 9-to-5! If you’re ready to welcome financial freedom, you can book a call with Brian and me. We’ll help you figure out how to manage your side hustle with a 9-to-5 and, eventually, quit your day job.
