Jobs/Vacancies / Handling Difficult Employees: 5 Ways To Win by SideHustle: 12:22pm On Dec 06, 2021
One of the most common frustrations I hear from people who are responsible for other people on a day-to-day basis is dealing with difficult employees. It can be extremely challenging to motivate someone who disagrees with you or doesn’t share your sense of urgency, who isn’t willing to do the work you assign them, or who just seems lazy.

You are a business owner or manager, so you understand that business is not personal. But this is not the case with your employees. They can make personal attacks on you and they can cause a problem with your business in a matter of minutes. They can be disrespectful when you are trying to talk to them about an issue in the workplace.

One of the more difficult aspects of dealing with difficult employees is that there’s no magic solution. It’s not as if there were a trick you could apply and suddenly they would become a model employee. However, there are some things you can do to improve the situation and make it easier for everyone involved.

If an employee becomes difficult or makes an issue out of something you really don’t think is that big of a deal, how do you handle it? Before you fire the difficult employee or get into a shouting match with the difficult employee try these five tactics for dealing with difficult employees.

Understand The Situation
It’s tempting to think that someone is difficult because he or she is doing something wrong. But that’s not necessarily true, and it’s a good idea to check your assumptions. The first step in dealing effectively with a difficult employee is to learn as much as possible about what makes the person tick and why they’re doing what they’re doing. If it’s something they’ve done before, try to understand why they did it then and what was different about those circumstances versus now. If it’s a new behavior, figure out how it might be related to something else that’s going on in their life (e.g., financial problems).

Focus on The Behavior Not The Personality
Separate the person from the problem (and try to keep them that way). Difficult people are rarely all bad — even the most annoying ones contain some good qualities. That’s how they got hired in the first place, after all. But even if a difficult employee is all bad, it can be useful to separate their personality from their performance and hold them to account anyway.

Raise Issues Directly And Clearly With The Employee.
Don’t beat around the bush or try to handle things on your own behind his/her back. Be sure you are both talking about the same thing, though; if you don’t make yourself clear, you will only make matters worse, and probably create some very negative feelings about you in the process.

Collaborate on a Solution And Keep Track of Their Progress.
When you discuss a difficult employee’s behavior with them, the best solution is that the two of you work together to establish a solution that you both agree on. Discuss the undesirable behavior, what constitutes good behavior, and what the employee requires of you in order to improve. Decide on a solution to the problem and keep track of their progress. Have regular one-on-one meetings with them to assess the quality of their work and see how they’re doing with the solution you both decided on. This will earn the employee’s trust and possibly motivate them to improve.

Remember, Keep Your Cool Always
You are always going to be the boss. You have the responsibility for dealing with difficult employees. You need to keep your cool at all times because if you overreact, the situation could get worse and it will make it harder to resolve the problem.
Business / How Talent Management Can Improve Employee Engagement by SideHustle: 6:14pm On Nov 30, 2021
It's important to establish the right strategy for talent management. Effective talent management is an essential part of business strategy because it allows for engaging employees in developing their skills and talents.

The way you set up your talent management strategy is determined by the goals of your business, and it must be carried out by your employees in order to ensure that they achieve the goals they are expected to achieve. Talent management strategies can involve a variety of different tactics and procedures, which can range from employee engagement surveys to formal training programs.

The basic idea behind effective talent management strategies is that you want your employees to feel a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment from their work. If you decide to use certain tactics or procedures, then you should check with a professional consultant who can provide your company with the best possible ways to make sure that all your employees are engaged properly.

Here are some strategies you can use

Have Employees Suggest Projects to Work on
Staff motivation is crucial for a healthy and productive environment. You should give staff the opportunity to suggest the next project they want to work on. This will keep them motivated, engaged and most likely increase their productivity. It will also help you find out who will be most suited to which projects. Doing this will also help you find out which employees are most engaged and satisfied with their jobs.

Track Their Progress And Promote a Culture of Feedback
Requesting feedback from employees is a great way to ensure they feel like they are an important part of the process. It can also help you identify areas where improvement is needed and what type of assistance your employee needs in order to improve their work.

There are multiple ways to get feedback; you can ask for their own opinions during meetings, you can ask direct questions about how your team feels about your work style or what they would like to see change or, you can also ask open-ended questions such as "How do I motivate the best performance from the team?" and "What do you think we could do better?"

Asking for feedback does not mean that you don't trust your employees; it just means that you want to better understand their point of view so you can create a positive environment in which both parties will thrive.

Reward Employees for Good Work
Employees who do a great job should always get a reward. This sounds obvious, but it's surprising how many managers fail to follow through on this simple concept. If you tell someone they did a great job and then don't do anything more to recognize them, they won't think much of you as a good manager.
Praise, bonuses, and promotions are all forms of positive reinforcement. The reason for offering them is simple: it works. Money, praise, or other rewards increase performance.

And yes, even if it's just an attaboy or an attagirl, do something to show your appreciation for the fine work someone has done for you. It really does mean a lot to people when their boss gives them positive feedback.

Be Concerned About Their Personal Development
It is important that employees have the opportunity to develop their skills and broaden their knowledge through training courses, access to online resources, and tuition fees.

Employees who have opportunities to learn and grow are going to be more engaged in their jobs than those who feel stuck in the same old rut day after day after day after day.

As an employer, be concerned about your employees' personal development. This shows you care about your employees, but it also makes sense for business reasons. Developing your employees' skills helps retain your most talented staff; it also helps them grow with the business, improving their performance and increasing their value to the company.


Finally, companies that have a good employee engagement strategy are going to see a lot of positive effects on their business. The first one is going to be a change in the overall quality of work that your team is producing. When employees feel that they are properly valued and respected, they will take more pride in their work and no longer feel like it's just a job.

Another benefit you're going to see from having an engaged team is that you're going to have fewer mistakes being made. Because the employees are motivated and happy, you're not going to see them rushing through their work or trying to get out of doing tasks they don't want to do. Everyone is going to be working together towards the same goals, which will make it easier for everyone on your team to understand what they are supposed to be doing and how they should be doing it.
Career / 7 Strategies For Learning New Skills That Pay Off by SideHustle: 12:45pm On Nov 26, 2021
We all have a ton of skills we want to learn. But sometimes it’s hard to get started. If you want to learn a new skill or gain a new ability, there are some simple strategies you can use to get the ball rolling. There’s no time like the present. So pick up that guitar and play; write that computer program; take that class; start that business; write that book; build that airplane; take that leap of faith. Start now, and improve along the way. Here are 7 strategies you can use to learn new things even faster.

Set Insanely Clear Goals for Yourself
The most important thing in achieving anything is setting goals, but most people suck at it. The problem is they set vague goals like “be happier” or “get stronger.” These types of goals are not only uninspiring, but they also don’t provide much motivation because they lack specificity and measurable milestones so set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely) goals for yourself.

Break Big Goals into Smaller Achievable Ones
You’ve probably heard the advice before: break your goal down into smaller, more manageable chunks. But why does it work? Why isn’t setting a big goal and trying to achieve it all at once just as effective? It turns out that this approach works because of what psychologists call the “goal gradient effect.” Essentially, it’s easier to get from point A to point B if you start from further away from B than from closer to B. If the distance between A and B is short, you feel an immediate sense of achievement when you get there and your motivation plummets, causing you to abandon your goal almost immediately. With a bigger distance between your starting point and goal, however, your motivation remains high throughout the entire journey, allowing you to keep going until you reach your final destination.

Focus on Mastering One Skill at a Time
If you want to learn a new skill, it’s best to focus on one thing at a time. If you try to do too many things at once, you won’t be giving each one the time and energy it needs. You will never learn anything well unless you give it your full attention. Sometimes it seems like there are too many things to learn at once — you’re trying to improve your memory, study a new language, start exercising, stop procrastinating, and keep up with your normal work — and you wonder if it will ever be possible to focus on each of them long enough to make progress. But focusing on one thing at a time is the only way to make lasting progress. Hone your skills one at a time.

Work With a Mentor or Teacher
Instead of trying to pick up a new skill on your own, see if you can find a mentor or teacher who will let you work with them for an hour or two every week. working closely with a mentor or teacher has two advantages: first, someone who knows more than you do can point out your mistakes and show you where you need to focus your efforts; and second, someone who cares about your progress can help keep you accountable for practicing regularly.

Join a Community With Like-Minded People
If you’re trying to learn something, join a community of people who are trying to learn the same thing. People who share your interests understand what you’re trying to accomplish. They can help with your questions, and their questions will be ones you want to answer.
People in communities are more likely to help each other than people who aren’t part of any community. When you see someone struggling with the same problem you struggled with, you’ll be more likely to help if it’s someone you know than if they’re just some stranger on the Internet.
Community members can also give you an idea of what knowledge is most valuable. If most of the people in the community know about a certain skill, that suggests it’s important. Maybe there is even an established body of knowledge for that skill; if everyone is learning from the same source, that makes learning easier.

Log Your Progress
It’s important not only to learn but also to track what you’ve learned. Sometimes this can be as simple as writing down what you learned that day, or making a list of books you want to read next. If you’re learning how to be more productive, it’s important not only that you do the right things but also that you pay attention to how long each activity takes so you can adjust accordingly.

Reward Yourself When You Learn Something New
Rewards are an important part of many learning strategies. Rewarding yourself for achieving something gives you motivation and positive reinforcement. You can reward yourself in many ways — treat yourself to a meal out, buy a new book about the skill, take a nap in the park, or whatever else works for you.
Rewarding yourself doesn’t just help motivate you to learn; it’s also useful to give you positive feedback that helps keep your motivation high when you don’t see results right away.

Conclusion
It’s as impossible to learn as it is to predict what you’ll need to know or do in the future. It’s far more sensible, then, to prepare for a broad range of possible futures by learning a broad range of skills now.
Learning a new skill is never wasted. Even when you aren’t building your career it seems like a good idea to improve yourself. Learning is an investment of your time, of your social capital, and of your usefulness to others. If you invest your time in learning a few general skills, they will continue paying off for decades.

Business / How To Get Customers To Notice Your Small Business by SideHustle: 12:14pm On Nov 25, 2021
Startups assume that being able to gain attention for their brand is going to be easy, and by extension, they think that there is no excuse for them not getting customers. The problem with this kind of thinking is that it totally underestimates the difficulty of standing out in a marketplace full of noise.

Most small businesses try to get customers by advertising or doing big events like promotions. This method has limited results because no matter how much you spend, you can’t get all the eyes to look at you. What if there was a way to get your target audience to seek out your business?

Here are 10 creative ways to get customers to notice your business

Put a face to the brand
If you’re a small business, putting a face to your business can help you succeed. People are more likely to trust a business if they know who is behind the curtain. They are more inclined to patronize you if they have faith in you.

Branding
If you want to stand out from the crowd, you should concentrate on your brand identity. It won’t be long before you have a known brand and a recognizable business. This is especially true for small businesses that lack the financial capacity to compete with large corporations. However, you should devote some time to assessing whether or not your business’s items are competitive in the local market.

Attend Events
If you’re just getting started in business, it’s a good idea to attend industry events on a regular basis. Small businesses can be noticed in their community by participating in local events. You’ll be able to gain feedback from potential customers, become more involved in the community, and make new connections. They can begin to expand their client base by physically meeting with people and establishing trust.
All of these elements are necessary for a successful business.

Promote your expertise
Customers are more inclined to do business with you if they know you have experience in the field in which they are most interested. When you talk or otherwise share your knowledge in front of an audience, it generates enthusiasm and increases your chances of being called on to perform similar tasks in the future. To employ this strategy, you must be seen as an experienced, authoritative expert in your field. This is because individuals like to do business with people they know.

Networking
Building a strong professional network is one approach to raise brand awareness and create leads. There are various strategies to increase brand exposure, but meeting new people is by far the most effective. It’s not about taking when it comes to networking; it’s about giving. Even if they don’t return the favor right away, they’ll remember how much you’re ready to give.

Ask Customers for Review
Look at existing reviews to see what others have to say. Are they referring to the effectiveness of your product? Are they praising your excellent service and the way your employees treat them? Have you encouraged your customers to leave reviews and testimonials? If not, now is the time to begin pushing your customers to submit reviews on the many websites where you have a presence. It’s time to start providing your customers with something to talk about on social media.

Newsletters
Are you reaching out to your email list via email? Subscribers are a useful resource for you. They are the ones who are interested in the solution you provide and will be on the lookout for additional information from you. One of the advantages of newsletters over blogs is that they have an intellectual advantage. Your link is lost in the world of links, comments, and (sometimes) archives; blogs are essentially ephemeral. Your essay isn’t saved in a database. You can’t stand behind it and say, “This is what I said on this date, and this is where I said it.” You’re doing it right with newsletters. It makes you a public figure.”

Ask for referrals
Rather than waiting for someone else to bring you business, take charge and ask your happy customers for referrals. The majority of people get new customers through referrals. However, if you want to actively obtain references from satisfied clients, you must ask for them. People who have already tried and enjoyed your product or service should be your primary target market for future sales. You must, however, take the initiative and ask them to refer your company to their friends, family, and coworkers.

Partner up
If you’re a business owner looking to acquire new customers, try forming a partnership with another business with a similar customer base and planning how to promote to each other’s customers. Partnering with businesses that have comparable consumer bases can help you boost your sales performance. When businesses with comparable clients collaborate and strategize, they can generate new revenue while saving a lot of money.

Use Social Media
If you’re a business owner, you can’t afford to overlook the advantages of social media. You can probably handle Facebook and Twitter as a small business owner. If you’re looking for a new way to connect with people, try exploring some new social media sites, especially ones where you know your target clients will be.

Business / Business Development Strategies For Entrepreneurs by SideHustle: 12:54pm On Nov 12, 2021
Business development is about working on things with revenue attached. It is about growing the company - finding new clients, selling more stuff to current users, figuring out how to generate more revenue or decrease the cost of doing business, hiring the right people with the right skills, effectively communicating with everyone involved in making success happen. This may be in addition to product work (making things), support (helping customers), or marketing (telling people about your stuff). Simply put, business development is what you do to help your business grow and profit.
Business development strategies are the tactics you'll employ to help your business grow and profit. It describes how a company aims to expand its operations.

Strategic Business Development
The process of obtaining optimal clients for key services is known as strategic business development. It's a method for making and keeping brand commitments. Business development processes and procedures are integrated with your company's long-term business goals in strategic business development. A well-executed strategy can lead to improved corporate growth and profitability, whereas a badly executed strategy can stifle growth and frustrate key employees. The best course of action is to conduct research and select tactics that will produce positive results for the company.

Top business Development Strategies
Networking
Because it is valuable and allows you to build close relationships with your audience, this is one of the most often employed business development strategies. Face-to-face networking is the most effective way to build new relationships and businesses, but it takes time and money. Most businesses are transitioning to digital networking via social platforms, which is more cost-effective, but even social media demands time and attention.

Referrals
Referrals are closely related to networking, and they can be a great business development strategy. Positive relationships with happy clients can bring in new business, and most businesses, particularly small businesses, rely on referrals for the majority of their clientele. Referrals, on the other hand, aren't always the best because they're passive; the referral source might not always recognize a strong prospect, and they might not be aware of the complete variety of services you can provide to help a client.

Advertising and Sponsorship
Traditional advertising is losing its long-standing effectiveness, and digital advertising is gaining traction because it allows businesses to get their messages and offerings in front of the right people for less money. Combining advertising and event sponsorship is a sound technique that works well. It will fix a variety of issues while also increasing your company's visibility.

Content marketing
A great business development strategy includes writing, speaking, or publishing content that displays your knowledge and how it can be utilized to solve customer problems. It establishes you as an authority in your industry and builds prospects' trust in the products/services you provide. Create a company blog where you can post industry-related content and host webinars for potential customers.

Unemployment affects a large number of young people. Have you ever pondered why this is? Some say it's because there aren't enough jobs, while others argue it's because young people don't have the digital skills they need to compete in the job market. I prefer to believe the latter.

In the developed world, it is sometimes assumed, if you're young and motivated, and tech-savvy, there will always be something for you to do. In the developing world, however, this is simply not the case. Youth unemployment can run as high as 25 or 30 percent — and that's just the people actively looking for work. The obvious solution to this problem is to train youths on digital skills so they can work independently in the future and also put an end to unemployment. That's why, at Side Hustle Internship, we're on a mission to prevent youth unemployment by equipping them with the necessary digital skills for FREE.

The obvious solution to this problem is to train youths on digital skills so they can work independently in the future and also put an end to unemployment. That's why, at Side Hustle Internship, we're on a mission to prevent youth unemployment by equipping them with the necessary digital skills for FREE.

Unemployment affects a large number of young people. Have you ever pondered why this is? Some say it's because there aren't enough jobs, while others argue it's because young people don't have the digital skills they need to compete in the job market. I prefer to believe the latter.

Getting a degree is no longer a guarantee of a good job after graduation. Today employers look more critically at applicants who possess relevant skills. This is true even if the school you attended was not a four-year school or a teach-in program. The number one reason employers hire candidates with digital skills is that they can relate to the job request and see the candidate's passion for the field. Employers also want to know that employees have achieved the goals they set for themselves in terms of educational qualifications and professional development.

Learning digital skills will not only make you competitive in the job market, but they will also help you get a raise. If you wish to learn a skill, register for the Side Hustle Internship 4.0 starting on October 25, 2021.

The Side Hustle Internship is Free and you get to network with professionals from your field. The Side Hustle Internship is only opened to African youths between the ages of 18 to 25.

Career / Startup Ideas For Your Small Business by SideHustle: 2:45pm On Aug 18, 2021
Starting a business is exciting. Many entrepreneurs experience the thrill of freedom and mobility for themselves and their families. Though it can be scary at first, with the right amount of dedication and research, you’ll find that setting up a startup is easier than you might think.

There are many types of business startups that a person can start. A startup is your own working business. Starting your own business does not need to be difficult when you have the right training. It is possible to make it in the world of entrepreneurship, but you need to first have a business idea that you know will generate some type of profit or revenue. Whether you want to create something new or improve something old, there is a world of small business ideas at your fingertips that are tapping into the inefficiencies in the marketplace today. The following ideas might just give you some inspiration if you are looking for startup ideas for a small business.

Freelancing
As more individuals, particularly the young, are entering the realm of freelancing, it has become the new normal. The freelancing business is rapidly expanding. Many freelancing sites exist where you may offer your services to individuals in need of work on a contract basis. If you have a skill, hone it, and seek clients who will require your service and offer, you don't need any specific training to become a freelancer. You can work as a freelance writer, programmer, or graphic designer, among other things.

Life/ Career Coach
People receive intense training and assistance from life/career coaches And many people want career advice; they want someone to mentor them to stay on course. If you've successfully navigated work, personal, and social transitions, use your talents as a life or career coach. After all, we could all use some motivation from time to time.

Personal Trainer
Those with a lot of experience in physical training can work as personal trainers and build a client base. They may either form their community or join a commercial gym. It's acceptable to start small and expand later if you decide to do this.
To spread the message, you can provide in-home consultations, workout regimens, and community boot camps. Don't be afraid to fill your Instagram account with free exercise videos and dieting tips - it's a popular approach for fitness experts to grow their businesses in today's digital age.

Tutoring Service
Are you adept at imparting knowledge to others? You might choose to teach some courses in a one-on-one environment. Tutoring is another example of a very simple business to start. Tutoring others might be a simple method to get your first business off the ground. You can tutor youngsters and if you have more advanced abilities, you can teach at higher levels. You may even pay someone to perform all of your tutorings for you. The benefit of tutoring is that it can be done in nearly any place. You can teach remotely through video, go to your client’s homes, or have them come to yours. You may even meet in public places like the library. Personal tutoring is in high demand, and you may expand your business as much as you want by employing more tutors and increasing your marketing efforts.

Ebook Author
It is not as straightforward as it looks to write a book. To get started publishing and selling your ebook online, you don't need any formal business expertise. You no longer need an agency or a partnership with a big publishing house to produce, distribute, and sell your book. Self-publishing and selling your ebooks via several online platforms such as Amazon, Blurb, BookBabay, Smashwords, and others have opened up a whole new world of possibilities for independent writers.

Translator
Do you speak another language besides your native tongue? Then start a translation business. If you can translate conversations or documents from one language to another, you can start a business providing translation services to people or organizations. To fulfil a specific need in your community, try specializing in a certain sort of translation, such as medical or financial translation.

YouTube Personality/Podcaster.
Starting a business as a YouTuber or podcaster is also simple. YouTube is a popular platform for people to share their knowledge on a range of topics. You may also get a share of the ad revenue by posting and promoting your videos. You may monetize your podcast as a podcaster by selling advertising space or working with businesses. Consider being one of the two if you have expertise in a topic or want to share your life experiences with others.

Consulting Business
Consider becoming a consultant if you have extensive expertise or understanding in a certain field. It is possible to make a lot of money as a consultant. Maybe you know all there is to know about sales, recruiting procedures, small business counselling, SEO, or marketing. Determine your area of expertise, promote yourself as a consultant, and set a reasonable fee.

Dropshipping Business
Dropshipping is a great business model for new entrepreneurs to start with since it is straightforward to set up and allows you to rapidly test a variety of business ideas with little risk. Dropshipping is when you sell a product online without having to stock it in your store. You submit the order to a manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer, who then delivers the items to the customer and you get paid.

While starting a new business may be highly rewarding, it can also be extremely stressful and frightening. Many people abandon their startup ideas due to a fear of failure and a lack of clarity about the type of business they should venture into. Even the most experienced entrepreneurs are aware that their new ventures may fail. However, with the proper direction, everything becomes simple. Side Hustle will walk you through every stage of launching a profitable business.

Business / Why Is It Important To Hire Appropriate Talents For Your Business? by SideHustle: 1:01pm On Aug 05, 2021
If you are a business owner, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to find top talent for your business. The difficulty is that attracting and retaining top-tier talent is more difficult than it appears. When you're starting a business from the bottom up, the last thing you want to do is hire inexperienced people. Your entire operation may easily flounder before it ever gets off the ground if you don't have competent staff to assist you to create and operate it.

Sure, hiring people can be difficult. And yet it is an essential part of any startup’s efforts to gain traction and win the competition. Failing at recruiting the most talented candidates can lead to the almost certain death of your company, which is why you must take special care in choosing the best talent for your business. Here are reasons it is important to onboard the right people on your team.

The Business Long Term Growth
It’s important to look at a possible new hire and think about their potential contribution to the growth of your company.
What additional talents do they have other than the ones necessary for the job? Are they good problem solvers who know how to approach a situation and where to seek a solution? These traits suggest that they will be able to make smart judgments with less supervision.
Their social skills are equally crucial in their overall development as well as business success. Do they get along with other people? Do they make an effort to complete more of the tasks that have been assigned to them? Do they have any leadership qualities that will help them advance in their position? All of these are crucial questions to ask to determine what you're looking for.

Reduced Turnover Costs
Hiring necessitates a considerable commitment of time, effort, and money. However, you will save a lot of money if you recruit the proper individuals from the start.
You might be tempted to go with your instinct when it comes to recruiting, but a terrible decision could have you rushing to replace someone you hired on the spur of the moment, which means spending more money.
In terms of lost payroll and income, you may be wasting a significant percentage of your total income for the position you're attempting to fill. By hiring the finest individuals right away, new recruits will be able to get up to speed fast and contribute right away.
to make major changes in their personal and professional lives.
Time Management
Managing your staff takes time. Dealing with a low-performer employee, on the other hand, takes longer than dealing with a high-performer.
However, if you hire the right people from the start, you can concentrate on other aspects of your business rather than worrying about whether or not your employees are doing a good job.
