Why Every Online Entrepreneur Should Have A Weekend Project?

For almost a decade I have worked on many projects, websites, blogs, clients and have seen that those projects that I work on weekends always works.

When I was in college and then doing a day job, I worked on Go4Expert. Having a day job meant that I could work on the site after returning from work but mainly on weekends. I created other niche communities like CFanatic which was a C programming community and is now merged into Go4Expert but then those communities where I dedicated more time never worked as much as Go4Expert.

When I left my job and was mainly working on my websites, blogs and building other niche communities and forums. I took up few clients for freelancing but not a full time. Google Panda and Penguin hit my site traffic and this is when I could switch over to yet another of my weekend projects which were freelance clients.

I worked for clients almost full time but on weekends I learned to trade and invest in the equity market and did share it on my investment blog.

Yet another of my weekend project that worked.

I am not sure why but weekend projects has always worked for me. Can be co-incidence once or twice but I really doubt it is a coincidence third time as well.

Reverse engineer to find out reasons why weekend project work, I can only come up with a couple of reasons:

  1. Expectation is very low from a weekend project.
  2. Working on something on weekend does mean you just love it.

After analyzing my weekend projects I think everyone should work on at least a weekend project.

    I have daily projects. My focus are Facebook marketing and local SEO. I am on a mission to leave high page rank do follow back links. I am very frustrated on the amount of time it takes for them to get recognized by SEO
