It can be daunting to figure out how to make a side-gig work. Finding customers, setting prices and balancing the workload of your 9-to-5 with a passion project can require building new skills.

Kojo sits down with three Washingtonians to talk about turning their passions into a side gig, and the joys and challenges they found along the way.
