Trying to start side hustle playing the sax?

Well as some of might have seen my other posts, asking for help on getting better. This one is going in a different direction. I am definitely not where I want to be in terms of playing and technique, but I feel that I can still start trying to use my "talent". I have seen a lot of people who have posted on Youtube, and are moving into a career of playing, which I feel is awesome. I am trying to figure my life out, because I want a side hustle and figure that this would be the way to go. Currently, looking for advice on where to start with getting my name out there, and work on better at the same time. Thanks in advance.

The initial direction this thread has taken is a bit odd, IMHO.

It's kinda hard to tell what 'side hustle' means, exactly.

Other than it seems clear that you do not intend to use this as your primary income source (i.e. you got a day job)....

It is also impossible to tell exactly what level the OP is at as an instrumentalist, so perhaps strafing them as mediocre or intimating they are a bit much ????

Yeah you can get into the whole "my branding" thing and learn how to do that as Dave notes....broadcast yourself all over the place if you wanna....lots of folks do. You can, if you are ready to make the effort and have the focus and all that...and if that's what you wanna do.

....but a side hustle can also be as simple as ....going out and busking on a corner or two a couple times a week....

He's not suggesting trying to make a living exclusively playing the sax. Geez, you guys are harsh.
