Side HustleIn January of 2017, I started listening to Chris Guillebeau’s podcast Side Hustle School. Chris Guillebeau enjoys the freedom that comes with being self-employed and a side hustler. He has written a few books on the subject over the years about his experiences and the experiences of others who prefer to make a living in a nontraditional way. Being my own boss and having more control over my time appeals to me; therefore, when his book was published last year, I decided to read it and see if I could obtain some information that would move me closer to developing my own side hustle.

This morning, I finished reading Chris Guillebeau’s book Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days. Motivation for starting a side hustle varies from person to person; however, the goal is pretty much the same: create additional income while still working your day job. Sometimes, the side hustle turns into your day job. Sometimes, the side hustle doesn’t work out long term or fizzles out altogether. Regardless of the motivation or the outcome, starting a side hustle does not require much time, money, or leaving the security of your day job. A side hustle is also not a part-time job where you work for someone else. Guillebeau offers a step-by-step format, provides resources, and shares stories to guide the reader to creating his or her own side hustle.

I have friends, who over the years, have created their own side hustles. They have generated extra income from making hair bows, taking pictures, tutoring, giving music lessons, and baking cookies. They all have a certain skill or special talent that they enjoy doing and profit from by putting those skills and talents out into the world. Now it is my turn. I just have to come up with an idea.

Have you ever started a side hustle or thought about starting one, dear reader? I’d love to hear your experience. Happiness!

“A side hustle has many benefits, but it all starts with the right idea.” ~ Chris Guillebeau
