The importance of side-projects

Darshan Gajara @WeirdoWizard

I contributed to Wrong Project which is a website with bite-sized think pieces by creators you’ve probably heard of.

Product Disrupt is my side-project and I've been working on it for over 3+ years now.

It has enabled me to connect with people that I wouldn't otherwise have an opportunity to connect with. It has also opened up a world of possibilities that I didn't even think was possible.

Here I've shared my opinion about why I think side-projects are important 👇
