Of course, your dream is going to change as you achieve more and more success. That tends to be the case for any industry.

You could also sell shirts, hats, bottle openers or things of that nature; however, if you give that type of stuff away for free, it could lead to brand awareness. Nonetheless, selling some of your items in bulk (where you see fit, of course) could be your form of side hustle.
