These Online Workshops Can Help You Start Your Own Side Hustle

Want to open a small business? Here's how you can take that next step.

(SPOT.ph) Creativity and collaboration know no bounds—yes, even in these days in which physical distancing is important. Co-making space Make Space Today along Malingap Street, Quezon City, has become known for being a collaborative home for crafters and makers since opening their doors in 2019. While it’s currently not possible to gather in their hub, they are taking things to the Internet as they offer online classes for the budding entrepreneur or even those with small businesses, starting at P3,450.

“All pre-lockdown workshops have been converted to online classes,” says Alessandra Lanot of Life After Breakfast and one of Make Space Today’s partners. Their online offerings mostly only take three hours, with a small number of participants for each class. And if you miss a slot, don’t worry; Lanot says that there are sessions for each workshop scheduled at least once a month.

Some of the three-hour group workshops you can find on the site include: Make Money While You Sleep, which focuses on selling digital products as a way to supplement your income facilitated by crafter, maker, and digital designer Mikko Sumulong; Visual Merchandising, for creating displays both for in-store and online, to be led by Catherine Limson, owner of Bedazzled and Luna Maia; and Pricing and Packaging Your Creative Services, where Lanot teaches how to calculate the value of your time and all the things you need to consider when pricing your services.

There is also a class for those who have already set up their business, but are not happy with the business results.

For those who have already dipped their toes into creative entrepreneurship and would like to refine their brand, Make Space Today also has a Rediscovering Your Brand workshop available as a one-on-one virtual call. Here, Sunday Paper founder Angeli Pangilinan guides you through your individual brand issues and questions in order to come up with actionable next steps for your brand.

Apart from the co-making aspect, Make Space Today’s physical space in Quezon City offers unlimited access to crafting and artist tools and supplies. It also has a Retail Incubator that allows members to test the waters of the selling experience. The Malingap branch is currently closed in keeping with the government's quarantine guidelines, but their pop-up shop at Uptown Mall, Uptown Bonifacio will reopen tomorrow, July 1.
