For some people, a side hustle is a second job. For others, it's a way to make money doing something you love. Regardless of your motivation, Office provides tools to help you get in on the side hustle game.

Create a business plan

A business plan can help you organize your ideas and get crisp about what your business will be, how it will run, and how it will succeed. Business plans are effective tools when it's time to look for investors or apply for a business loan. A business plan shows that you're serious about taking your ideas and making them reality.
