001: Why have a side project?

Episode Summary

In the first episode of Design life, we discuss one of our favourite topics: side projects. What makes a side project more than a hobby? How can they help with your career? We'll fill you in on what our side projects are (both the ones we're doing now, and some 'failed' ones from the past) and chat about the challenges we face. “The hardest part about side projects is perseverance. It’s so easy to have an idea for something and start on something, but actually persevering and sticking with it even when you aren’t seeing results straight away is really difficult, and that’s where the hustle part comes in.” - Femke
