Description-

  • The author of the New York Times Bestseller THE $100 STARTUP, shows how to launch a profitable side hustle in just 27 days.

    To some, the idea of quitting their day job to start a business is exhilarating. For others, it's terrifying. After all, a job that produces a steady paycheck can be difficult to give up.

    But in a time when businesses have so little loyalty to employees that the very notion of "job security" has become a punchline, wouldn't it be great to have an additional source of income to fall back on? And wouldn't it be great to make that happen without leaving your day job?

    Enter the Side Hustle. Based on detailed information from hundreds of case studies, Chris Guillebeau provides a step-by-step guide that anyone can use to create and launch a profitable project in less than a month. Designed for the busy and impatient, this plan will have you generating income immediately, without the risk of throwing yourself head first into the world of entrepreneurship.

    Whether you just want to make some extra money, or start something that may end up replacing your day job entirely, the side hustle is the new job security. When you generate income from multiple sources, it gives you options, and in today's world, options aren't just nice to have: they're essential.

    You don't need entrepreneurial experience to launch a profitable side hustle. You don't need a business degree, know how to code, or be an expert marketer. And you certainly don't need employees or investors. With this book as your guide, anyone can learn to build a fast track to freedom.

Excerpts-

  • From the book

    The Way of the Hustle

    When a British man who managed a construction company wrote a series of fish tank reviews for an obscure website, he included links to several Amazon product listings at the end of the reviews. He knew he'd earn a small commission if visitors clicked through from the reviews and made a purchase, but he was so busy with his day job that after he posted the reviews, he promptly forgot about the whole thing. A few weeks later, a check arrived in the mail . . . for $350. His partner didn't believe it was real money until he took her out to a nice dinner with the proceeds.

    At the time, he had no idea that this small project, created in a weekend, would go on to make hundreds of dollars. He also didn't know that several years later those same reviews would still be earning him an average of $700 a month, without any further work on his part. It wasn't retirement money, but it sure was nice.

    Similarly, when a San Diego government employee offered to photograph a friend's wedding, he didn't know it would lead to an extra $3,500 every month. This employee didn't want to be a full-time wedding photographer, but the option to shoot an occasional wedding whenever he wants provides him with security and savings. He takes the jobs that accommodate his schedule and turns down the ones that don't, all while continuing to receive a steady paycheck from his "real" job.

    When a Pennsylvania oil and gas sales rep started posting images on Pinterest, she wasn't a celebrity and didn't have a "revenue model." In addition to the day job, she was also a mom and a yoga teacher and active in her local community. Within a month, she had earned more than $1,000—much to her shock and happy surprise. After three years, she'd taken in more than $40,000, all while uploading photos whenever she had a break from her busy day.

    These stories, all true, represent the way of the side hustle: defined as a moneymaking project you start on the side, usually while still working a day job. In other words, it's a way to create additional income without taking on the risks of going full throttle into the world of working for yourself.

    Sure, for some people the thought of quitting their day job and striking out on their own is exhilarating. For many others, however, it can be terrifying. After all, whether or not you have a family to support or a mortgage to pay, a job that produces a steady income and provides health insurance is difficult, if not impossible, to give up.

    But what if you could get a profitable idea off the ground with just a minimal investment of time, money, and effort—and you could make that happen alongside your stable and steady job? This book shows you how to do exactly that, with a step-by-step guide that takes you from idea to implementation in just twenty-seven days. The guide is designed for the busy and impatient. It's a detailed road map that will allow you to brainstorm, select, launch, and make money in under a month.

    But a side hustle isn't just about putting extra cash in your pocket. In today's environment, where the idea of a business having any sense of loyalty to its workers has all but disappeared, the side hustle is the new job security. It affords you the ability to decide. When you receive multiple paychecks from different sources, you are no longer dependent on the whims of a single employer.

    More income means more options. More options mean more freedom.

    In the pages ahead you'll read many more stories like the ones mentioned above. Entertaining as they are, they also have a greater purpose. They're here to show you that anyone can build a fast track to freedom by increasing...
